Historic and beautifully appointed, Sutton Farm Cottage is the perfect place to stay while you explore the beautiful Southern Highlands.

Just minutes from the shopping delights of Bowral and Moss Vale, and an easy drive to other historic Highlands towns like Berrima, Bundanoon and Robertson, a stay at Sutton Farm Cottage puts you right in the middle of everything the area has to offer. Hotels, wineries and championship golf courses are also close by.

The Cottage was the very first building erected on the property almost two centuries ago. It’s close to the road, (handy in the old days of Cobb & Co. coaches!). It has been lovingly restored to retain its colonial charm, whilst including all the comforts and features of modern life. The original dirt floor of the early 1800s has been replaced with polished concrete, (sometimes you don’t want to be too original!).

Sutton Farm Cottage is fully self-contained, featuring stunning high ceilings, dormer windows, and exposed beams and rafters using recycled post and rail timber from the old barn and original post & rail fencing. Upstairs are two petite but luxurious bedrooms with deluxe queen beds, overlooking the grazing paddocks, outdoor arena and stables of the Equestrian Centre.

Downstairs features spacious and supremely comfortable open living /dining areas, with a fully-equipped kitchen, a private lounge, and a dining room to entertain. With a hedged cottage garden, and parking right outside, Sutton Farm Cottage is the perfect getaway location. Flagstone pathways lead you to the Main Red Front Door

We can also accommodate your horse, just a short walk from the Cottage, in our beautifully restored stable complex, with full access to our world-class arena surface and all the equine facilities that Sutton Farm Equestrian Centre has to offer.

The history of Sutton Farm dates to the early 1800s. The property was originally part of a fifty-acre land grant given to Edward Shipley, he established the property known as “Stonehill” in 1822. The homestead was constructed using convict labour.

Ownership of the property changed a number of time in the early 1900s, before the establishment of the Sutton Farm Stables in the 1930s. The indoor arena was added to the stables in the 1960s, and the stables used as a location for the classic Australian horse movie “Phar Lap”. For a time in the 1980s, the stables were converted to craft shops and cafes and the indoor arena used to host musical performances! 

In the early 1990s, Sutton Farm was returned to use as an equestrian facility. Now as a boutique training, agistment, accommodation and events centre, it has been restored to its glorious past as Sutton Farm.
