Jambalaya Cottage is nestled amongst 25 acres of natural bushland on our Wildlife Sanctuary near Braidwood NSW. A charming, rustic Cottage that accommodates 4 people, (extra people by arrangement) just 3.5 hours from Sydney, and 1 hour from Canberra, Nowra & Batemans Bay. Prepare and cook your own meals in a fully equipped new kitchen complete with microwave and dishwasher. Relax in comfort in the lounge room complete with satellite TV and wifi, and a stunning fireplace for those chilly nights. A rustic, country bathroom with internal laundry and washing machine makes this Cottage the perfect retreat for families and couples alike.
You need only bring your food and personal items. Bed linen, towels and electric blankets are all provided for your comfort. House keeping also provided for stays longer than 1 week. With surrounding rivers for swimming, canoeing and relaxing, bushwalking and local gold panning, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Wake each day to fresh eggs from our free-range chickens, bottle feed poddy lambs, make friends with our gentle pony named Nancy, or just sit and watch the ducks and geese swimming on the dam.
In summer you can pick your own veggies and herbs from our market garden which grows amazing food. And of course you can visit our Farm Shop which sells our farmed Lamb - sausages, rissoles, mince, chops, etc, Honey & Honey Products, Beeswax Skin Products, Passata Sauces, Preserves and other farm goodies.
The Sanctuary is home to a large number of Wildlife. Some are rehabilitating, some have been released back to the Wild, and others are still in care from being orphaned or recovering from injury. The peace and tranquility of the Sanctuary MUST BE MAINTAINED AT ALL TIMES. No parties, noisy children or loud music tolerated. Guests who cannot maintain these rules will be asked to leave. Thank you for your understanding.
