The Manor House B&B Apartment
The Manor House is a fully restored, old, large, country house in a farmyard setting of fruit trees, vegetables, chooks and animals.
Within the body of the house is a large (12m) indoor swimming pool with views over the farmyard with the vineyard and creek 100 metres away.
The 2 bedrooms of the apartment have genuine antique queen sized beds and furniture with English style, vaulted, attic ceilings and views to the East over our sheep paddock.
There is a reading room with large windows, looking down from high above over the pool where the Northern sun streams in all day and a sitting room with television, tea making facilities, drink fridge and comfortable large lounge chairs. The bathroom has a shower and a large multi jet spa bath.
Several full breakfast options of your choice are supplied which can be taken inside beside the pool or on your own, adjoining, outside covered terrace. We use eggs from our own free range chooks, veggies and fruit from our own garden and bacon and other ingredients from local producers. You can make your choices upon arrival.
During the day you can enjoy tasting some wine at the Cellar Door or wander through the paddocks and vineyard down to Cedar Party Creek to watch the wildlife or do a spot of fishing or laze by the pool.
Or you can take a 10 minute walk to Wingham Brush to explore the magnificent stand of an ancient remnant rainforest and it colony of fruit bats beside the expansive Manning River.
Also of course the historic township itself with its heritage buildings which surround the unique Central Park.
Your hosts are Tim and Margaret who live in the Manor House but unlike many B&B’s, the apartment and the pool are exclusively private to our guests.
We cater to only one group of guests at a time being a maximum of four people all being at least 16 years old unless by special arrangement.
We prefer to stay with the concept of Bed and Breakfast and not cater for lunch or dinner unless by special arrangement. There is a variety of great venues within the township which is an acceptable walking distance or a 2 minute drive.
Please note there are no cooking facilities in the apartment however a barbeque is supplied on the terrace with cutlery, crockery and glassware and depending on the season, some fresh veggies from our garden.
Tariff from Friday to Sunday is $110 per person per night including breakfast (min 2 people). Our minimum stay is 2 nights and during the week our tariff is reduced by 20%. Repeat bookings attract a 10% discount and we have no surcharge for school or public holidays.
When you arrive, for each couple, you will find a complimentary bottle of Jacaranda Estate wine for each day of your stay in the drinks fridge and you will be afforded a 10% discount on any wine you buy from the Estate during your stay.
We expect to open the Manor House Apartment at about the same time as the Cellar Door opens being about the end of November 2017.
We don’t intend to list the apartment with any of the booking agencies. We prefer to do it the old fashioned way so to enquire please text or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
