“My partner and I enjoyed a relaxing weekend at this cosy apartment in the middle of a gorgeous farm in the countryside. Fran was super lovely and accommodating! She let us feed the alpacas which was so much fun, and let us have a leisurely late check out since no one else was due in that day, which was amazing. The outside hot tub was fantastic! We loved wasting away the hours in that- we especially loved watching the sunset from in it! Great stay and perfect place to unwind and enjoy the tranquillity!”
Your retreat is self-contained, luxurious, and is the perfect weekend or mid-week getaway in a secluded country setting. Picnic amongst the eucalypt and pine trees, or wander along the 2km stretch of the beautiful Wollondilly River. Only 1.5 hours from Sydney or Canberra, and 30 minutes to the boutique shops, wineries, historical towns, and numerous events of the Southern Highlands. Our onsite massage and beauty treatments turn this property into your own private resort.
“Brilliant little countryside escape. Second time visiting, this time in the autumn and the warmer weather meant we could enjoy some reading down by the water and the outdoor bbq/fire in the evenings. 30 mins or so from Bowral so we visited en route for basic needs. Well stocked pantry with all spices you could need and oil. Thanks for having us again!”
The Vale Penrose offers you calm and tranquillity in this moment of uncertainty. Come spend a few relaxing days with us in the middle of rural Australia, with only kangaroos, bunnies and wombats in sight! For the comfort of our guests we now offer "no contact" check-ins where you can pick up your key from a lock box and minimise external contact. We are always available in case you need any help.
“I stayed 2 fabulous nights and glorious Autumn days at this studio apartment in Penrose. It was the perfect stop over for my drive from Gold Coast to Melbourne . Away from the city and isolated enough for privacy, peace and quiet. The gardens are divine especially for an old Landscape Designer such as myself. The sculptures placed intermittently, the variety of trees, perennials , Fig trees etc are fantastic. I loved the extra touches Fred has thought of. As a Host myself it is these things which makes one standout above the others. Fred has stocked everything incl ear plugs ( my dog snores) , white bath robes and more. And my breakfast of fresh eggs and smokey bacon, with pineapple juice was so very much appreciated. I could go on but it will be a “War and Peace” novel. Just book this beautiful piece of paradise as you wont be disappointed. Highly recommended.”
