Both are sumptuous and seductive. Restored and renovated in keeping with the heyday of train travel (think Murder on the Orient Express) and located on award winning Redleaf Farm, they will transport guests. Perfect for: Romantics, travellers, train lovebirds, folk wantingtogocountry.redleaf-farm.com
House is a cosy weatherboard cottage full of charm, antiques, books and art. Sleeping four, it sits within a pretty rural setting with established trees, shrubs and sculptures, close to the Wingecarribee River as well as Moss Vale and Bowral. A gentile Highlands hideaway that harks back to an era of space and grace, when life seemed slower and less harried. Perfect for: Art lovers, green thumbs, those seeking solace. luxstowehouse.com.au
SAINTED STAY
Manor House, Moss Vale
This historic gothic revival house was one of the first
to be built in the Southern Highlands. Constructed in 1848 for the Reverend Hyatt Wyatt (really), the Anglican rector of Berrima, on land granted to a former convict, John Waite, the property was later a nunnery and a school. Famously it was home to Mary MacKillop during her visits to Moss Vale. Today, beautifully restored on an acre of gardens, this house is a pleasant stroll away from Moss Vale’s centre, and sleeps up to 12 guests in luxury with all the mod cons. Perfect for: Wedding parties,
Saint Mary MacKillop devotees, intergenerational groups. homeaway.com.au0417797451 E
