Our historic Cottage has stood graciously on the banks of the Barrington River since the 1880s. Scenic countryside is at your doorstep: enjoy a rambling walk and splash in the river. In winter, rekindle by the slow combustion fire, and let your soul unwind. Take in the tranquil scenery, with beauty that captivates as the seasons change. Only a 10 minute drive to Gloucester, you’ll be close enough to anything you might need during your stay.

Welcome, we hope you’ll enjoy this gentle friend.

Where you’ll be

Barrington, New South Wales, Australia

What I LOVE is that I relax on arrival. The river flowing, the birds chirping and the breathtaking views make me feel at peace. Reading on our verandah, a cup of tea in your hand, overlooking the beautiful fields, what more could you want? It is instant relaxation.

The Barrington River Valley is overlooked by the World Heritage Listed Barrington Tops National Park which is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia inscribed by UNESCO - our Cottage is the perfect basecamp for your hiking adventures.

Scenic drives, local cafes, great pubs, bushwalks, cattle sales, golf, lawn bowls and tennis courts are all available within a 10 minute drive of the Old Schoolmaster's Cottage. A little further afield and you will find horseriding, mountain biking and kayaking.

You will need a car to get around the area.
