What our Guests say

We are extremely proud of our property, and it’s such a delight to have our guests appreciate their stay as much as we like offering it to them:

Mudgee’s Getaway Cottages really does have something for everyone; but if you wont take our word for it, take a look at some of these fantastic reviews.

 

 

Just perfect

“An annual event for a retirement village group over many years. Without doubt the most wonderful  place. Each house we have stayed at (depending on the number of us going) has been spotless,    everything provided is top quality and the owner, Elizabeth, a complete delight and kindness personified.”

 

Simply the best ! Sheer heaven!!

‘When you go to Mudgee look no further than these cottages. Elizabeth your host and owner is truly wonderful as are her cottages. You can’t fault their love and attention to all you need. The animals are a sheer delight particularly Kamahl the camel!! A MUST DO AND STAY . Don’t miss the chance to stay”

 

Getaway Cottage :

“A fabulous Mudgee experience

The cottage slept 8 people comfortably in a beautifully decorated environment. There is also a beautiful outdoor garden area with animals for children to enjoy…rabbits, camel, an ostrich and a very talkative macaw. I can’t wait to go back!”

 

Garden Cottage

“We had an amazing stay in the Garden Cottage! All the creature comforts of home within walking distance to Mudgee town centre. The kids had a ball with the animals, fishing and rolling down the big grass hill. Highly recommend to families looking for an affordable break away.”

 

“Unique accommodation options in the centre of Mudgee

A unique beautiful group of 6 cottages located on the river minutes walk from the centre of Mudgee. The property is on acres of manicured gardens with its own menagerie of farm animals. We stayed in The 6 bedroom Ellington Manor which was perfect for our group of 5 couples. Thoroughly recommend.”

 

“Christmas in June with friends.

As a group of friends we have been 8 times and have had a fabulous time.
We do our Christmas in June and the farmhouse has everything we need as does the Orchard cottage. We walk into town for dinner and coffee at the Bakery..couldn’t get much better thanks to Elizabeth & her staff.”

 

“6 stars for this fantastic family holiday property

3 generations went to Mudgee for a school holiday getaway. We cannot express how happy we were the welcome we received, the property itself and all the activities for the grandkids. We stayed in Bloome cottage -The Cottage itself is self-catering and whilst unassuming from the street inside all our needs were catered for. The kitchen was overstocked (stocked does not do it justice) with eggs (some laid from the hens on the property), bread, milk, juice, spreads, butter and all extras such as cling wrap, tin foil and glad bake. Extras such as oil and plunger coffee and teas were plentiful as well. The property backs on to a large garden/field. The kids had an amazing time petting the bunnies, feeding the horses, camel and ostrich. The ducks waddled by and the chickens and roosters kept them happy. We were invited to collect eggs in the late afternoon and each child received a bucket to fill. They were given an egg with their name on it and what a delicious breakfast we all had. There are numerous vegetable patches and we were encouraged to pick veges to use whilst staying. There was also a playground, a variety of bikes of different sizes, balls, bats and even a shuttlecock. It was fantastic to see the kids running around on the grass and interacting with the animals instead of being on their ipads or glued to the TV. The cottage was quaint but there were an abundance of blankets, doonas, towels, pillows and throws. Wifi was included and the there were numerous toys for the little kids to play including baby chairs. A high chair and cot were provided at no extra cost. We cannot express our thanks enough to the staff who showed us real Australian country generosity and friendliness. The kitchen was equipped with a large fridge/freezer a dishwasher and more than enough cutlery, crockery and dishes. We cannot wait to revisit. Fantastic”

 

Orchard Cottage:

“Our stay was just what we needed ! Our little cottage was so comfortable and the view over the property from our expansive deck a delight to the eyes and the spirit .Oh the serenity ! Thank you Elizabeth and the Getaway team.We will be back..”

 

 

Elington Manor

“Exceptional venue for a large group in Mudgee

I recently celebrated my 50th birthday with family in Mudgee and we stayed in the Elington Manor at Mudgee Getaway Cottages and what a stunning place it is. There are several cottages you can rent however, Elington Manor has my vote as it’s super spacious (7 bedrooms with 6 full bathrooms and 2 additional powder rooms) and plenty of different living spaces. There is also a lovely pool with a stunning outlook and…best of all for an animal lover like me…there are animals to pat and feed, including a camel! Kamal is awesome – so gentle and happy. No detail is missed in this manor, with plenty of bacon, eggs, bread, butter, and other supplies, provided for your stay. All the amenities you could ask for. I will be back…in fact I’m booked to stay there again in 2 weeks!”

 

Bloome cottage:

“Great place to stay!  Mudgee Getaway Cottages are in a great spot – walking distance to town (for food and sightseeing) and have a huge expanse of gardens, animals and kids activities. Elizabeth and Garry were friendly and helpful – and breakfast items were supplied.  We stayed in Bloome Cottage – 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms – plenty of space with comfortable beds and lounges – and a bonus with undercover parking for our car.

Price very reasonable too:)”

 

Orchard Cottage.

“We were booked into the Orchard Cottage, 5 adults for a family function. Great cottage & the timber deck overlooking the grounds was wonderful, we were lucky enough to be able to use it most of the time. Elizabeth was wonderful very helpful, we loved walking around the grounds checking out the animals & the vegetables garden. We actually picked some silverbeet to have with our dinner on the Sunday evening. So relaxing & within walking distance to the main streets.”

 

Elington Manor in Mudgee Getaway Cottages

“A group of 12 old friends enjoyed an amazing three days in Elington Manor in Mudgee’s Getaway Cottages. The Manor is simply amazing, with six en-suite bedrooms, beautiful dining rooms, lounge rooms, pool all set in immaculate gardens.  Owner Elizabeth was on hand to give a tour of the gardens and her large family of animals, including a camel, ostrich, geese, chickens, rabbits etc etc. A very relaxing atmosphere, and the Manor is adult only.
Thoroughly recommend Getaway Cottages.”

 

Garden Cottage : An absolute joy to stay here

“From the first contact the team was pleasant and helpful. I specifically asked for a COVID lockdown guarantee which I was given. We were provided an upgrade to the Garden Cottage which was a delight with 2 very comfy king bed rooms and 2 bathrooms. The living area was small but as there was only 2 of us it was perfect. Lovely outlook over the gardens from the deck. Everything you could need was provided including a daily call to see if anything else was required and all was well.
We took advantage of the Orchy juice deal and the free pick from the vege garden. In exchange the animals got almost 3 bags of carrots over the 4 days we were there.
Thankyou Elizabeth for your wonderful hospitality – you can be very proud of how this establishment is run.”

 

Elington Manor : Mudgee Getaway Cottages

“A group of 12 good friends spent a most enjoyable few days in Ellington Manor in Mudgee Getaway Cottages in a magnificent old renovated house, just superb! Everything you could possibly want in a holiday home is catered for, ensuite bedrooms, large dining table, fabulous kitchen,swimming pool, and beautiful gardens.
Breakfast for all of us was provided, even an ostrich egg! Owner Elizabeth gave us a short history of the Cottages and the animal farm, a very interesting lady.
The Manor is an adult only accommodation, but there are several other Cottages to choose from, all located just a 5-7 minute walk from town. I can certainly recommend Ellington Manor.”

 

Elington Manor : A great Stay

“We travelled as a group of 10 and stayed in Ellington Manor.
This is a beautiful home and great for a group with 6 beds and 6 ensuites. Heaps of room to relax and a terrific kitchen with all you need and a pantry that had basics. We were also left breakfast provisions which was great. There is also a great outdoor area with views to the farm area. We were able to walk into town for dinner which was a bonus. Elizabeth and her team were welcoming and all the prior communication was efficient and friendly. We are hoping to return again next year and would certainly stay here again.”

 

Orchard Cottage :  Fun family farm stay

“We had such a lovely stay! Our kids feel in love with the farm – my 12 and 10-year-old went straight for the bikes, and my 5 and 7-year-old to the ‘petting’ area – there were cute baby rabbits, chickens and guinea pigs to cuddle. We had the chance to collect eggs, feed the donkey and camel, get up close to an ostrich and and roam about the immaculate farm gardens. Farmer Garry was super nice too. We stayed in Orchard Cottage which had loads of room for our 4 kids, and a lovely back deck that overlooked the farm. The cottage was much more modern and spacious than it looks on the website. The cottage had everything we needed and was only a short stroll into town for dinner (Kelly’s Irish Pub!). If you have young kids you should definitely stay here!!”

 

A beautiful getaway for groups of families

“We booked three cottages for a long weekend getaway for three families all with young children. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and had absolutely everything we could have needed including very generous basic breakfast supplies. The property owners were friendly and welcoming and went above and beyond to help set the scene for the two birthdays were celebrating. Our children (aged between 12-2) had the most amazing time free-ranging across the property. They collected eggs, rode bikes, cuddled bunnies (sorry bunnies, they really loved you), played golf and enjoyed chatting to the camel and the ostrich. We were able to easily keep an eye on them from the beautiful balcony of Orchard Cottage. We really didn’t want to leave, and hope to come back again soon.”

 

Elington Manor

“We organised special birthday celebrations here over a 3 night weekend at this great house. For 6 couples it is the perfect place for this style of get together as all 6 bedrooms have an en-suite and there is plenty of space with various areas to relax in, whether it be outside or inside.
One night we organised a local chef to come and spoil us with a two course meal, all prepared in our enormous kitchen. This was the highlight of our stay.
It’s a 10 minute easy walk into town with plenty of beautiful houses to see on the way. Such lovely parkland out the back of the house to wander around, pick vegetables, or practice your golf.
We will be back for the next big celebration next year.”

 

Garden Cottae:  Wonderful farmstay experience.

“Loved our 3 night stay at the Garden cottage. There is plenty to do for people of all age groups. From table tennis, mini golf, badminton, boare games in the room. Farm animals to entertain the kids – kamahl the camel, olivia the ostrich, ponies, donkey, chicks, cockatoo, bunnies, ginea pigs. My 4 year old daughter loved the egg picking experience and feeding all the animals. You can also pluck fresh veggies from the garden for your use during your stay. We got some fresh cabbage, lettuce, snow peas, potatoes. There was a generous supply of breakfast items in the kitchen which we really relished and enjoyed. The farmer Garry even gave us some fishing rods to go fishing in the river adjoining the property.”

 

Review from Dec 4, 2018

Great place to stay 

“First time in Mudgee and found these cottages on the tourism page and couldn’t have been happier with our choice.
Our cottage was 2 bedroom 2 bathroom and had eat in kitchen family area. There was a huge deck with bbq overlooking the beautiful grounds where there is a resident Camel, Ostrich, Donkey and chickens to feed. Plus, there is a small golf green to practice on and It’s only a short easy walk into town.
The owner Elizabeth is very friendly as is all the staff.
Will definitely stay here again.”

Awesome

“We have just returned from a 4 night stay in Ellington Manor. It is one of the few places in NSW that you can have 6 bedrooms and 6 ensuites. We are a group of 16 and also had Getaway cottage next door to Ellington manor, which is very convenient for a large group. Getaway is comfortable but a bit dated. However it is very homely. Ellington Manor is quirky in its design but very comfortable.. There is enough room for everyone and also it is easy to be on your own if need be, as with 9 acres there is room for everyone. The kitchen is very well equipped with good quality fixtures and equipment, also well stocked.
When booking, Elizabeth was extremely helpful and looked after us and was just so pleasant and we had no problems. She is a real gem. The on site staff could not be faulted. Our group were so happy we have booked for a return visit. We all totally recommend Getaway Cottages.”

Mudgee Getaway!!

“What a lovely way to spend a few days away….Mudgee Getaway Cottages….a self catering B&B! Just delightful! We stayed in the Orchard Cottage….a 2 bedroom cottage so warm & comfy with a beautiful outlook over the lovely manicured gardens & farmlet! Plenty of quality provisions are left for the length of stay you choose & all the cottages are really a home away from home! The office staff are always so helpful with any enquiries about Mudgee & the surrounding area etc. Lots to do in Mudgee….. wineries, cheese tasting, honey tasting, shopping, sightsering etc! Absolutely worth a visit!”

 

Great For Family Reunion

“We had our yearly family getaway at Mudgee Getaway Cottages. We stayed in the Farmhouse and the Garden Cottage. The Farmhouse was huge and had everything you needed for a fantastic weekend. There were 9 of us and the food supplied was amazing. The choices for breakfast were great and the BBQ on the back patio was really good. There was enough tables and seating for a huge group. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the gardens were so peaceful to wander around. The group were going to do a Mudgee wine tour but we never left the property just relaxed in the sunshine on the back patio. Would highly recommend.”
