ABOUT THE HOUSE.
Our large and comfortable house in Berry is on 2.5 acres.Originally part of a dairy farm located minutes from Berry village. The house is built of recycled bricks from an old country gaol. For two years it has been under renovation (probably we'll always be doing something!) but now are able to offer three large bedrooms, two lounge rooms, fireplace, pool, relaxing courtyards, large refractory dining table and dining area with frenchdoors opening out to sunny verandah or shady poolside areas for guests to enjoy. We have a small creek running thru the property with platypus, fresh eggs from our chickens, a peacock and peahen and sometimes even some little ones wandering around. We also share the house with friendly dog and a lazy cat.
We welcome you to share our place. We are open to new people, ideas and experiences. We aim to be helpful and friendly without intrusion.

We ask you to come and go quietly out of respect for neighbours. Also not to waste power and water by leaving lights on and taps running unnecessarily.

My sister and I enjoyed our stay at Mandy and Peter's Rustic restored farmhouse very much. We were made to feel welcome and our hosts, Mandy and Peter, were easy to reach when we had last minute questions regarding directions. It was apparent that a lot of thought and time was involved in restoring this farmhouse. The room was very nice - comfortable, plenty of space and charm. The antique furnishing and decorations throughout the house were well done. The ensuite had a really nice shower and the bed was very comfortable. Mandy served us breakfast consisting of a wide selection of fresh fruit, our choice of cereal and fresh bread delivered by Peter from the local bakery. We would highly recommend this B & B to others.
A very lovely, restful property located in what be one of NSW's jewel areas. The property was as described and Peter and Mandy were great hosts. Definitely a BIG thumbs-up!
Mandy and Peter were excellent - very easygoing and helpful. And their home is beautiful! I would definitely recommend a stay here - and the brekky was delicious!
I had a lovely peaceful time at Mandy and Peter's airbnb. My room was comfy and clean, the pool was warm to have an early morning swim. I enjoyed the gardens and animals. Thanks for the early morning coffee. Recommended to others for sure.
Peter and Mandy were excellent hosts and we really enjoyed our stay with them, particularly our chats about the wonderful property and the work they have being doing to make it such a unique retreat. Wish we could have stayed much longer than just one night! And the dog Taj was just the best too!
I stayed with my partner at Mandy and Peter's place for one night.
Mandy and Peter communicated well before arrival.
Their son Jack greeted us on arrival. The room was wonderful. He gave us great dinner recommendations!
We met Mandy and Peter later in the evening - they were very friendly and easy to chat to. They provided a delicious breakfast in the morning and great company.
We would thoroughly recommend staying at their beautiful b'n'b.

We are Peter and Mandy, and 16yr old Jack working his way through school. We are friendly, relaxed and enjoy travelling... since we can't do this at present we are very happy to meet people here at the B&B and host those who are lucky enough to be doing so!!
We also run a Woodfired Pizza shop...in Nowra (we're busy!) so are probably eating too many pizzas...we do this because we're usually hungry, also we feel that once we are not 'pizza shopping' anymore we will have no where to go for a good pizza!
