Our piece of heaven is Briarfield, a beef & wool farm on the Northern Tablelands 30km east of Guyra. 1300m above sea level.

We only take one booking/group, it's all yours. At Briarfield, our back paddock, we call The Ridges, is 500 acres of of woods, grass land, gullys, hills and valleys to explore, with some lovely small farm dams and a picturesque creek, where we recommend that you camp. 

There are gullies to explore full of natural rock outcrops, ferns & enormous gum trees. Lots of little tracks to follow under the canopy of our great stringy bark trees. An abundance of wildlife to share your space with, kangaroos, wallabies, echidna & if you are lucky koalas! 

No power or bathroom facilities. You need to be completely self sufficient. There is a loo at the shearing shed on your way in, where there is a rain water tank for you to fill containers with fresh rain water.

We had booked to stay at Briarfield, and got stuck by the floods in NSW and weren't able to make the booking.

Julia was gracious enough to call and make sure we were all okay and we arranged to be able to stay at another time when things weren't so wet!

So although we haven't been onsite yet, our interactions with Julia are enough to recommend staying at Briarfield.

I really needed to get away at the last minute and Julia accomodated my last minute plans so easily and provided all the information and very good directions that I needed. It was so peaceful and there were amazing 360 degree views of the valley at the top spot. I was able to do heaps of bushwalking and spotted various birds, wallabies and roos and echidnas too.!! You have the whole place to yourself and its not far from the township of Guyra which has enough options to keep you stocked up for supplies. I started with 3 days but decided to extend this to 6 - I had the time and I trully did not want to leave. Although I didnt get the chance to meet Julia she was so very lovely to deal with and such a good source of infomation. I caught up with Robert as he came past to check on the friendly neighbours (the agistment cows) and he was so very down to earth and caring and made sure I was ok and safe as I was just camping by myself in a tent.

Easy to find by following the clear directions provided.
A good selection of nice camping areas to choose from.
Loved being able to leave our gear without fear of things going missing since only one group are allowed in at any given time.
Great base camp for exploring the surrounding areas.

Beautiful spot with friendly helpful hosts and curious gorgeous cows who gave our van a good licking when we went for a walk lol

We really enjoyed our time at Briarfield despite the average weather conditions. There was plenty of shade at the top camp site which was great for those hot days. The arrival instructions were super clear and the hosts very accomodating. Camping by the creek would have been great but there was limited shade and you would need a 4x4 to cross the creek to get to it. Will happily go back!

Despite immediately crashing my motorcycle, I actually had a fantastic experience with Julia and her beautiful piece of country NSW.
Hospitable and just lovely, Julia went the extra mile to ensure my comfort during my (unfortunately) short stay. I will be back and would recommend Briafield to all.
