Our family have lived at ‘Edgecote’ for eighteen years. We are predominantly horse breeders and trainers, however have some cattle and many dogs. We love the great outdoors and especially enjoy this ‘bottom paddock’ because of all the trees and the bird life. The dam gives the space a cool feel and a place for dogs to swim and retrieve.

This is regarded as good fossicking country with zircons, sapphires and other semi-precious stones to be found.

Sometimes you will be sharing the paddock with a small herd of friendly and curious speckle park cattle. The mommas currently have young calves. They come and go as they please on their grazing adventures across my whole property. Please let me know if you are worried about the cattle and I will move them. P.S: the creek in not currently running as it has been dry. If you need water, ask.

Wyallia Cottage

1 site · RV, Tent25 acres · Quirindi, NSW
We are 12 kms from the New England Highway, 20 kms from both Wallabadah and Nundle, and 57 kms from Tamworth.Of the 3 towns, Nundle is the most historic - not surprising given its gold mining beginnings. But its been the grazing community on which its thrived since the latter part of the 19th century. Gold mining has largely been superseded by forestry and tourism, with Chaffey Dam providing a great playground for water sports, and Sheeba Dam in the natural beauty of Hanging Rock. The history of the region is told on the walls of the Peel Inn, which along with 'Glenoak', a once leading merino stud in the district, now cattle property, has been owned by the Schofield family since the 1860's. In the last 50 years, Robert and Margaret Schofield have been delivering a tasty combination of traditional Australian and Asian dishes, depending on the backgrounds of visiting chefs.Our property currently runs only a small number of sheep, soon to add goats for cheese production. Our adjoining neighbors run 800 head of Angus breeders. The area abounds with wildlife.Park or pitch your tent within the grounds of the house, with access to outdoor bathroom (toilet and shower) facilities, adjacent to the laundry with washer and dryer. There is access to a picnic table, rubbish facilities and reliable wi-fi.Our property is ideal for the quiet escape. Goonoo Goonoo Creek is on our property. Quality dual suspension mountain bikes are available to guests to ride on the property or adjoining backroads. Or you may prefer to go for a walk instead.Stay toasty around the campfire in the evenings as you gaze at the night sky.The property is 2WD accessible and there's sufficient space for a caravan, motorhome, campervan or camper trailer, and of course, tents.Cats are not allowed.
