A short stroll will allow you to experience all that the heritage town of Millthorpe has to offer, including a number of high-quality restaurants/cafes, winery cellar doors and a range of eclectic and boutique shopping options – home wares, clothing & antiques.

Known for its spectacular scenery (autumn particularly) and it’s growing reputation as a food and wine region, come and explore the surrounding region and the large regional towns of Orange and Bathurst, which are both approximately 20 minutes away.

So please enjoy some time away… Just the two of you! |



Began as the village pharmacy before then becoming a bric-a-brac shop and a doctor’s surgery before morphing into a cosy b&b. Throughout the self-contained property, items honouring the previous life of the building take pride of place. While the theme is historical with a hint of country charm, nothing of comfort is surrendered to ensure every guest is given an authentic village experience.
