Poppy's Cottage
Armidale, Australia, Bed & Breakfast and Farmstay

Poppy's Cottage (only 5 minutes from Armidale) is the perfect stopover on the New England Highway between Sydney and Brisbane/Gold Coast-or the charming and peaceful holiday destination for that much needed "getaway-from-it-all" restful break. An unforgettable, warm, and friendly farmstyle Bed & Breakfast experience awaits you in this romantic and cosy atmosphere.

The charming turn of the century farmhouse on 140 acre farm is home to our 3 teenage children and menagerie of dogs, ducks, hens, geese, pet sheep, cattle and various other farmyard animals - and they are all very friendly! Children may enjoy patting the pet sheep or collecting the eggs. Nestled in an enchanting cottage garden, our guests enjoy the comfort and privacy of their own separate cottage . Accommodation consists of 2 bedrooms with ensuite bathroom: double bed in main room, & two singles and sofa double bed in second room. A cot is also available. The cottage is warm and snug with heating, electric blankets, fluffy doonas, and ironing utilities. There is a small refrigerator as well as tea and coffee making facilities, along with a barrel of homemade Anzac biscuits which disappear very quickly! You will find fresh flowers in the cottage, a basket of fresh fruit, as well as extra bath towels. (All linen is provided.) After dinner treats include English Fudge, chocolate peppermints and an opened bottle of port. There is a CD system so bring along your favourite music. Television and microwave are available on request. Reading matter in the cottage is both abundant and versatile - a selection of magazines and books offering everything from Byron to "The Three Little Pigs"!

A hearty breakfast includes fresh and poached fruit, yoghurt, freshly squeezed orange juice, farm eggs and bacon, etc. Delicious 3 course dinners by candlelight (including complimentary bottle of wine) are optional, and highly recommended.

Having enjoyed the company and hospitality of B&B's overseas, we now enjoy offering the same experience to our guests in "Poppy's Cottage", (which we have been operating for over twelve years).

Our location provides a convenient base to explore historic buildings, Cathedrals, University, National Parks and Waterfalls nearby in the New England area.
