Nestled 12 kilometres off the New England Highway, in the heart of Queensland’s wine country, The Folly is a 1700 acre sheep property. The Pepperina Cottage is ideal for couples seeking a romantic weekend getaway on the beautiful Granite Belt.
Pepperina Cottage is ideal for couples looking for a romantic weekend getaway. It features a queen bed and ensuite with bar fridge, electric blankets and private BBQ on the deck, with a gorgeous view overlooking the river. It is located close to the main house, but is still private and quiet.
Ballandean is a popular destination for tourists all year round, but is most popular in the winter. Visitors come to enjoy the cool days and frosty mornings in front of a cosy fire. There are at least 50 different wineries across the Granite Belt with many winning national and international awards every year for their products. There are many options for those dining out in Ballandean itself with some very nice restaurants showcasing local produce.
Interaction with guests
There are a number of activities that can be enjoyed at The Folly including fishing, birdwatching and bushwalking. As we run a working sheep farm, visitors are welcome to come and help with any activities on the farm if they wish to. We have sheep, cattle, donkeys, chickens, dogs and horses.
We are a family of three - Ben, Maple and Felix who is 2. Whilst the cabin is close to the house, we respect your privacy and you can relax in the quiet tranquility when you come to The Folly.
