On the Southern Downs, in the Granite Belt approximately 11km north of Stanthorpe is the small township of 'The Summit".
Situated in a country setting on Valley View Farm, is your home base to enjoy what this area is famous for.
Some great wineries and food spots nearby with the closest restaurants 10 mins drive in town and the bulk of wineries further afield on the south side. Drive yourself, book a taxi or a local wine tour to get around for a great short holiday.

The space
Room to spread out in this cottage. Not a new build but fresh and clean and channeling a vintage vibe.
We are on the northern outskirts and it takes about 8 minutes to drive the 11km from here directly to town. Here you will find boutique shops and your nearest restaurants.
You will have access to one or two bedrooms, depending on your booking requirements, plus the rest of the space. The cottage has a fully enclosed yard in the front. It also has a front patio and a back outdoor barbecue area for outside relaxing and an outside fire area. The kitchen is equipped with a fridge, microwave and full size upright stove/oven combo (no dishwasher) and laundry facilities.

Outdoors you have a full size tennis court and pavilion as well as the basket ball hoop.
This building started life as an office when the property used to be a strawberry farm nearly twenty years ago. Now Valley View is a small working farm 1.33km off the New England Highway, on the Qld/NSW border. There are four houses situated within walking distance of each other. Your accommodation is private, but not secluded as you are likely to see/hear other people during your stay. The cottage is at ground level for the back entrance but has three steps in the front.
No pets allowed inside. A large fenced yard is provided for your pet to enjoy. (Approx 15 x 20 m)

Guest access
This is not a shared space, you have it all to yourselves. However the advertised price is for 1 room, twin share. If 2 people are wanting separate rooms the second is available for a $25 cleaning fee per booking. You are welcome to use the tennis court and pavilion, walk around the grounds and maybe find a quiet or scenic spot.
Enquire for special offer on 3 night bookings.

Other things to note
Breakfast basics- cereals, fruit, yoghurt, breads, juice, butter, spreads.
A quantity of wood is complimentary during the winter months for the indoor fireplace- more can be purchased at the highway service station.
No wood supplied for outside fire, you will need to bring/buy your own.
Washing machine coin operated, powder/pegs provided. No dryer.
Tennis court is equipped with lights for you to play at night.
Even though the accommodation is on a farm we do not offer interactive farm activities like horse riding, cow milking etc. You are quite welcome to look at different things and we are happy to show you around.
