Madison's Mountain Retreat is a four-star peaceful bed and breakfast farmstay in Kurrajong Heights , on acres bordering the Wollemi and Blue Mountains National Parks .

Every spacious cottage has a cosy log fire, kitchenette, TV and DVD player.

Some cottages have a private spa, massage is available by appointment and one cabin is wheelchair accessible. Madison 's is ideal for family holidays with the kids - have an adventure when you collect the eggs for breakfast or help us feed the alpacas every day.

Recently, Madison's has hosted garden weddings, 21st parties, wellbeing seminars, large family reunions, yoga retreats, workplace get-aways, womens' annual retreats and other special events.

Madison's has an 18 m indoor heated pool and spa, tennis court, gazebo with BBQ, large shed, common room (with library, pool table and open fire), open space and acres of bush.

Madison's is spectacular in spring, beautiful in summer, exciting in autumn and cosy in winter. Tariffs include a generous breakfast hamper.

Farm visits by APPOINTMENT ONLY - please call first.

Little Valley Farm is located in Laguna and is only 90 mins from Sydney and 35 minutes from Kulnura on the Central Coast Plateau.

We breed huacaya alpaca's, grow turban garlic and roma tomatoes on an old lavender farm.

We do not offer 'day visits' but we do offer a unique farm-stay experience for 4 people with our vintage 1950's red rattler train and a tiny Shepherd's Hut. Book your two-night stay in our eco-friendly, sustainable farm and even better is that you have the opportunity to interact with our friendly alpacas.

Follow us on our Facebook page for alpaca events, workshops, fleece sales, training days including learning how to handle and care for alpacas.

We are registered alpaca breeders with the Australian Alpaca Association so if you are looking for breeding females, wethers as guards or just simply pets for your small acreage please contact us here. We offer a consulting service on how to set up pens, shelters, breeding, alpaca health, vaccinations and annual shearing advise.
