Schottlanders farmstay is 2 hours from Sydney CBD near Gerringong in the Illawarra. Schottlander’s Farmstay is the original farmhouse previously owned by the Quinn family, who ran a dairy for several generations. It is situated on 230 acres. The house has been renovated to make life comfortable for the 21st Century but it retains its warm, country feel, surrounded by green, green paddocks and contented cows.
The house has 4 bedrooms and sleeps 8 people. Linen is an extra charge.
A new kitchen and two new bathrooms have been installed along with ceiling fans. The living/dining area has rustic, slate tiles.
Harking back to an earlier era, the wooden floors and high, pressed ceilings feature in some rooms. In one of the bedrooms, an original cast-iron fireplace with mantle-piece adds old-world charm.
To the east lies Werri Beach and the Pacific Ocean, just 5 minutes drive from the property; to the west, the dramatic rise and rise of Saddleback Mountain with primeval rainforest. You can choose to walk the challenging incline to the top paddocks, where sorghum, rye, oats and corn are grown especially for our Wagyu friends; or you can take the easy way and drive!
We are especially proud of our waterfall walk through the rainforest.
The skyscape of the South-Coast is ever-changing, from the brilliant, liquid sunrises ,to the lovely sunsets, to the mystery and splendor of the night sky.
Couples, families or small groups can experience a wholesome, farm-style holiday with plenty of room and freedom in a beautiful, rural setting. Choose to relax completely and do nothing at all or become involved in a myriad of activities:
Feed the free-range chooks and collect eggs for breakfast. Harvest seasonal fruit and veggies and fresh herbs from the cottage garden. Plenty of sealed road for kids bicycle/scooter riding. For the artists, bring your easel, sketch-book and camera.
Learn all about the famous Wagyu cattle. Sample the marbled beef born and bred on the farm. For those interested in the “nuts and bolts” of farming, you’ll see the latest farm machinery in action, whether it’s slashing, planting or harvesting.
230 acres to explore! Enjoy a walk around the property and say hi to the chooks, cows and calves.
