Welcome to Ryder Homestead, we offer you the choice of 3 private, self-contained country accommodations. The property is set on 100 hectares of pristine Australian bush ready for you to explore. You can choose between a studio styled cottage, 2 bedroom secluded cottage or a 6 bedroom homestead with a large open living room and kitchen. Each accommodation is equipped with your very own fireplace and firewood provided ready to keep you warm throughout your stay.
We are located in Wattle Flat NSW, 3 hours from Sydney, 1 hour from Mudgee or 30 minutes from Bathurst. Offering complete serenity and relaxation. We offer an opportunity for our guests to escape the normal hustle and bustle of life, to relax and allow your children the freedom to explore and play. Let the magic of nature soak away the stresses of life. Fill your days with little or lots, it's up to you. Comfort and nature blend beautifully in your own country-style cottage or in the homestead.
A selection of DVD's, CD's, books and games make for a variety of in-cottage/homestead entertainment. Phone network coverage is minimal, however Telstra works the best. There is plenty of nice space to walk around the property, gold fossicking at the stream or going yabbying in one of the dams.
Ryder Homestead offers self-check-ins. You will receive information in your pre-arrival email to guide you to your cottage/homestead and get you settled in. We like to give our guests maximum privacy, although we are often close by and happy to assist with anything if required. We are available to answer any questions you might have so we can make your stay the most enjoyable it can be.
