    Beschreibung

    Our 20 acre property is at the beginning of the Hunter Valley just 15 minutes from the Sydney-Newcastle railway. We will pick up and drop off at the station.

    We moved here from Sydney 7 years ago for a "tree change" and absolutely love it. We have pasture and a beautiful rainforest gully which we are regenerating (it was full of weeds), two horses, a miniature pony, chickens and a dog. We are husband Phil, wife José and adult daughter Helen. Horse riding is our passion and we regularly go to competitions.

    We have inherited permaculture features, plants and trees and want to do more (swales, food forest etc) . We grow vegetables and have fruit and nut trees. We are learning about regenerative farming to improve the pasture and capture water. The property backs onto a native conservation area/forest with many delightful, well marked bushwalks. There is an abundance of birds and wildlife; kangaroos and wallabies, frogs and insects. There are wombats too but we have only ever seen them via a wildlife camera.

    We run an equestrian mapping software business from home. For overseas visitors, we would love to practise our languages and perhaps give you a break from speaking English all the time which can be tiring. We have a spare, very comfortable double room in an annexe to our country house. There is room to park a van, caravan etc. While we don't play musical instruments ourselves we love to listen, so musicians are very welcome. We love cooking all different styles, family meals and are keen to learn new recipes from all over the world.

    A well behaved dog would be welcome - but we'd have to assess what it is was like around horses and chickens. We don't know how our dog would respond to a cat.
