Within the 1830's Kippilaw Homestead, the Shearers Quarters are a luxury getaway for couples and groups <4 . A 400 acre farm, with 10 acres of gardens, a horse, donkeys, alpacas and a shed full of chickens, and access to the tennis court and pool, the SQ are renovated, with historical touches, overlooking the River. Breakfast for the first morning (cereal, milk, eggs, coffee and tea) is provided, and guests are welcome to help themselves to eggs and vegetables (when in season and available).

The space
The Kippilaw Estate is one of the first grand residences in the colony of New South Wales, dating back to the 1840s. The shearers quarters within Kippilaw have been lushly renovated, whilst retaining many original character features that reflect its rich history (including doors signed and dated in pencil by visiting Shearers through the last fifty years).

The shearers quarters are in a private enclosed acreage, shared with the stone house, within the broader Kippilaw estate boasting 10 acres of secluded gardens, trees and hedging, along with an orchard, tennis court and a chicken sheds. The working farm also hosts on averaage 80 black Angus cows and their calves.

The property features a pool for the warmer months, tennis court, and 10 acres of gardens around the main homestead, with plenty of bench seating to relax and take in the views. Our rose garden in Summer is stunning, boasting more than an are of roses. All of these amenities are freely available for registered guests to enjoy as they wish during their stay at Kippilaw - unfortunately, our insuarnce does not cover people not staying on the property so please do not bring unregistered guests onto the property without prior written approval.

The shearers quarters sleeps 4 across 2 bedrooms, the main having a queen bed and the second bedroom having 2 single beds, with a luxury, shared bathroom.

It has a cast iron wood fireplace and firewood supplied for the cooler months, and ceiling fans for the warmer months. There is also an outdoors fire pit for the winters and a bbq on the balcony overlooking the river, if you would rather a casual meal rather than using the newly renovated kitchen.

There is a dedicated car space proximate to the shearers quarters.

** Strictly no parties, and unfortunately we cannot host weddings on our grounds.**

    During your stay

    The shearers quarters are private and, together with the stonehouse, separate from the main Kippilaw estate. Guests are left to relax in their own space. Apart from the owners of the property, we have a resident warden who lives onsite, but normally out of view of the shearers quarters. Onsite assistance is hence available if required, and we are a phone call away if required.
