Welcome To Poppy's Cottage B&B!
"Fabulous all round!" - Australian Country Style Magazine
Poppy's Cottage (only 5 min from Armidale) is the perfect stopover on the New England Highway between Sydney & Brisbane/Gold Coast - or the charming and peaceful holiday destination for that much needed "getaway-from-it-all" restful break. An unforgettable, warm, and friendly farmstyle Bed & Breakfast experience awaits you in this romantic and cosy atmosphere. Enjoy the history behind this settlers’ cottage which was built as a residence for gold miners at Hillgrove circa 1860, and transported by bullock team in 1901 to its present location when the farmhouse was built.
The charming historic farmhouse on 140 acre farm has been home to our family along with a menagerie of dogs, ducks, hens, cattle and various other farmyard animals - and they are all very friendly! We have a large fully fenced cottage garden. As well as enjoying time on the trampoline, children may like to help collect the eggs from the chicken house in the morning. We have a beautiful friendly border collie and pet ducks in the garden so children have plenty of opportunity for an enjoyable farm experience. Also resident is a young cat with a most interesting personality. The miniature horse, Coki, is loved by all.
The cottage is warm and snug with heating, electric blankets, fluffy doonas, and ironing utilities. There is a small refrigerator as well as tea and coffee making facilities. All linen is provided and a good supply of extra bath towels are on hand. After dinner treats include chocolates and an opened bottle of port. There is a CD system so bring along your favourite music. There is a microwave in the cottage, and television with DVD available on request. Reading matter in the cottage is both abundant and versatile - a selection of magazines and books offering everything from Byron to "The Three Little Pigs"!
A lovely hamper breakfast includes: fresh fruit, yoghurt, orange juice, plunger coffee, Twining’s Tea, home baked fresh bread, and delicious conserves made from our fruit trees! During the warmer weather, you may enjoy this, at your leisure, in the garden beneath the shade of the fruit trees.
Having enjoyed the company and hospitality of B&B's overseas, we now enjoy offering the same experience to our guests in "Poppy's Cottage", (which we have been operating since 1991).
In addition to being almost adjacent to our local vineyard with its cellar door and restaurant, our location provides a convenient base to explore historic buildings, Cathedrals, University, National Parks and Waterfalls nearby in the New England area.
We look forward to looking after you.
