Ashmar sleeps up to 14 people, we have a main cottage and for larger bookings, an additional separate flat and bathroom.

Check availability buttonGayle and Ian will be your hosts during your stay and we can supply home cooked meals if you don’t want to self cater. Ashmar is the perfect place for a family get away or party, plus we only take one booking at a time, so you will always have the place to yourself.

Enjoy our beautiful surroundings, quiet location, fresh country air and at the end of your day take in the stunning night sky.

Ashmar is a self-contained heritage cottage set in a beautiful country garden with spectacular views across our property and beyond. Designed and built with comfort and convenience in mind it includes 3 bedrooms sleeping up to 12 people, a 3-way bathroom, well equipped timber kitchen and laundry (second toilet) with washing and ironing facilities. Plus there is extra accommodation with a double bedroom, extra bathroom and sitting room ideal for the Grandmother and Grandfather’s retreat. This is available when more than 6 adults are staying.

During quiet moments enjoy the colour TV or in-house video or simply sit and relax while taking in the fabulous scenery. During the cooler months make yourself warm in front of the crackling wood fire. Included in the tariff are linen, towels and all cooking utensils for your convenience. We supply butter, milk, bread, sugar, tea and coffee on arrival, and an old fashioned cuppa awaits you.

The cottage is set in a lovely country garden and has a BBQ in a covered courtyard. The garden is a wonderful place for you to enjoy the peace and quiet and to watch the many native birds and the nearby grazing cattle. Peace and quiet is assured as Ashmar has only the one cottage – you do not have to share this wonderful experience with anyone!


Down on the farm there’s lots of see and do, especially for children who can play in the wide open spaces and learn all about farm animals and where our food comes from. We have a hay ride around the property that all the children (and lots of adults) love. Every day there are animals to feed, eggs to collect and cook for breakfast, milking to be done and if you are lucky you may see a calf being born. We often have small animals we are hand rearing, such as lambs and goats. Everyone can have a try at bottle feeding. All our cattle work is done with horses, so you may see some mustering during your stay. For group bookings of 6 adults of more, we can show you how to get cattle ready for the show ring, including washing and blow drying and teaching to lead.
