The Loft at Kyangatha; an idyllic farm stay less than an hour's drive from Sydney.

The Loft is a quirky sandstone and timber hideaway just 30m from the river. Set in a paddock with views of pasture, river and the hills of Popran and Dharug National Parks.

Perfect for a couple (or 2+1) it is an ideal place to get away and relax. Enjoy calming walks around the property, relax by the river, go for a paddle or have a BBQ on the water's edge.

The space
The Loft is a quirky space that will appeal to those who love the outdoors and privacy. Designed over two levels with an outside shower and amenities (WC) under the external stairs.

The ground floor has the kitchen/dining/lounge, amenities and a huge undercover deck. The galley style kitchen has a gas cooktop and microwave oven with crockery, cutlery, pots and pans and basic utensils provided.

The dining/lounge area has a TV monitor for you to play movies from your computer (there is no TV reception). It opens onto a large deck with BBQ and views of the adjoining paddock ( with fire pit) and river which is a stone's throw away.

Upstairs is an attic style bedroom containing a double and single bed which opens onto a private balcony with fantastic views of the river and surrounding paddocks. It seems you can almost reach out and touch the river.

It is a short stroll across the grass to the river (we have almost a kilometre of river frontage) that takes you to another BBQ area which has an undercover outdoor setting and open BBQ. Enjoy a BBQ (we provide the settings and utensils if you don’t have any) or take one of the kayaks for a paddle or bring your own.

If you like animals we have a small herd of very curious cows and free-range ducks. The more adventurous will wander over to you to see what is happening. We also have two friendly horses that are very happy to be patted. If they are in the Loft's paddock don’t be surprised if they come over to the deck to see what is happening! The friendliest of all though is our Cattle Dog / Kelpie cross who only loves basking in the sun more than being scratched.

If you are lucky you may see the pair of magnificent sea eagles which frequently fly up the river or the pair of spectacular wedge-tail eagles that hunt on the hilltops.

Close by is Popran National Park with walking and mountain bike tracks. Other attractions are the choice of two public golf courses, horse riding at Glenworth Valley or boat hire and great fishing on the Hawkesbury River at Spencer. It is an easy drive to charming Wollombi with its great cafes and old pub, Wisemans Ferry with its famous pub or Peats Ridge with its café, farmer's market and Springs Restaurant. Spencer is about 10 minutes away for a great burger, fish and chips and coffee.

Tea and coffee are provided. There is a coffee plunger so bring your own grind if you can't live without your particular brew.

Get away from it all; we don't have mobile reception (you can get that a few km down the road).

Wi-fi which is OK for social media but not streaming (good reception from the balcony and in view of the main house, limited inside).

Infants are welcome however we do not have infant furniture (high chairs, cots etc) or safety devices ( cupboard locks etc).
