Set amidst picturesque countryside with rolling hills, dams, creeks and bushland, Barkeldine Cottage is the perfect location for family, friends or small groups, to get together for a holiday, special occasion, group retreat or workshop. It’s also an ideal base to explore the nearby coastal & hinterland region,  as it’s located midway between Barrington Tops and the Forster/Tuncurry coast.

The property is 125 acres and home to approx 25 head of cattle, including our own Belted Galoways, 3 donkeys & a number of geese. There is always an abundance of wild birdlife and you may be lucky to spot the occasional wallaby, echidna or turtle.
