The property is a 10 - 15 minute drive to Berry, 20 - 25 minutes to Kangaroo Valley and if you are up for a half day or full day outing, the beaches at Gerroa, Culburra or Jervis Bay are within 20 minutes driving distance of Rayfields.

Stay warm or keeping cool?
For the cooler months, Rayfields has a cosy, wood burning fireplace in the Farmhouse living room.

Rayfields supplies all linen and bath towels. As the rate flexes with guest numbers, linen and towels will only be supplied for the number of guests that have been paid for.
Parking for cars, etc?
Rayfields has open air parking on a paved driveway area near the house, or additional driveway and lawn parking for vehicles. 4 car spaces are covered by a carport between the Farmhouse and the cottage. In total up to 6 vehicles can be comfortably parked.
Is my dog or cat also welcome to stay?
Rayfields welcomes pets. The 2 bedroom cottage has a good area for dogs (fenced and hedged), and ther is a choice of 3 breeder grade kennels, each with a dog run, about 40 metres from the accommodation. If you go out for the day, the kennels are perfect for keeping your dog comfortable and secure.
Rayfields is home to much native wildlife. You may well see wallabies, wombats, and echidnas here. The birdlife is also abundant. All of these, however, are wild and you must remember to keep your distance and keep pets away from them, for the wellbeing of all. The Australian bush also contains snakes, spiders, and biting insects. You must take adequate precautions when outdoors, including closed-toe footwear and insect repellent.
