How is the property laid out?

Ashby Downs is a single level home. You enter the property into the large living area, which is open plan with the dining area and kitchen. The large kitchen is well equipped, with a gas oven and cooktop, dishwasher and coffee machine that is compatible with Nespresso pods.

The master bedroom has a king bed, ensuite bathroom and a small private deck. There is a queen bedroom, and a third bedroom with two sets of bunks and a trundle bed. There is a divider in the third bedroom that enables the room to be partially split into two rooms. Bedrooms 2 and 3 are accessed via the living area and share a large bathroom with a claw foot bath and a walk in shower.

There is a laundry with a washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board.

WiFi, Internet, Netflix, or Pay TV - will I have it?

Complimentary Starlink WiFi is available and a password will be provided in your pre-arrival email.

Please note that neither The Holidays Collection nor the owner can guarantee 100% that WiFi will work, and no compensation will be payable if problematic. If WiFi is important, please therefore always have a back up plan.

What about outdoors?

Ashby Downs is set on 110 acres of farmland. Close to the house you will find a large custom built playground, grassed areas and a fire pit. The verandah is the perfect place to relax in the shade. In the paddocks there are miniature Highland cattle, miniature Belted Galloways, alpacas, Black Face Suffolk sheep, hens and a rooster named Freddie.

There are three unfenced dams on the property, as well as two creeks in the gullies.

Staying warm or keeping cool?

In the winter Ashby Downs is heated using the wood fireplace. There is a gas convection heater in the dining area and oil heaters in the master bedroom and bathroom. All of these heaters are designed to be used for a short period of time to take the chill out of the air while the wood fireplace warms the house. Please note due to the off-grid nature of Ashby Downs there is no cooling in the summer other than a pedestal fan or opening the windows to catch the breeze.

What about sheets, towels and other supplies?

Ashby Downs supplies all bed linen, sheets and bath towels.

Parking for cars, etc?

Fantastic stay

Cal | 30th October 2023

We had a fantastic stay at Ashby Downs. It was a beautiful and secluded farm that felt a million miles away but was in fact an easy 2hr drive from Sydney. Fast Wi-Fi was a bonus too!

Beautiful house and property

Lorraine | 22nd August 2023

Beautiful house and property. It was equipped with everything I needed. The fire pit and animals were a highlight. It felt secluded without being far from cafes and shops. I would definitely stay again

Beautiful location

Kristen | 9th July 2023

We loved our stay! The house is in a beautiful location - secluded and surrounded by bushland but also only 15 minutes from the cafes and shops of Bowral, Berrima etc. Extremely well equipped, cosy and loads of toys and games for kids. Absolutely perfect for a family getaway. Thanks!
