I have been “chomping at the bit” (pun intended) to tell you about our brand new property, set in rolling fields in a horse riding centre. Get your carrots ready, as you are in for a treat!

Picture this…..

Accessible Accommodation set in the Southern Highlands. Hollyhall Farm offers full accessibility, from the moment you enter this brand new cottage, tastefully decorated in a bright and cheery horse theme.
Free-flowing open plan living, this pet-friendly accommodation offers guests the use of a patient lifter hoist, electric bed, an indoor heated swimming pool with a pool hoist, accessible tennis court, Equine Therapy and much, much more!

Owned by Johnny (who is a wheelchair user) and his wife Jan, Hollyhall caters from low to the HIGHEST DISABILITY needs.

Pool and ponies, horses and nature

This three-bedroom cottage shares its site with a busy equestrian facility that sees riders and pupils coming and going every day. Surrounded by lush farmland, placid horses and miniature ponies greet you. Watch the riders train during the day, stroll along with the concrete and gravel path, then enjoy the solitude, and the glorious Highlands night. A place for respite, holidays and short term accessible accommodation.

You’ll get to meet Ted, a spoilt rotten miniature pony who keeps the horses in line and the guests entertained. He loves cuddles and will sell his soul for carrots. Ted and Johnny (the owner pictured below) will show you around the cottage and the farm. Some paths are gravel, others are cement, giving you the opportunity to explore this working Farmstay. As Johnny is a wheelchair user himself, the horses are accustomed to wheelchairs and will be very friendly and interactive, allowing guests to take part in horse therapy if they choose at an additional cost.

Fun times!

This accessible accommodation is cosy in winter and a home away from home. A place for families to get together and create memories around the bright bold, dining table or the log fire. Furthermore, double glazing keeps the place warm in winter, cool in summer.

Horse themed decor

Jan (Johnny’s wife) took the equestrian theme to the next level and decorated this self-contained cottage in a bright, bold. fun-loving horse theme. Jan trains riders of all ages in the arena as well as working with you on horse (equine) therapy should you choose it.

Three bedrooms sleeping up to six guests

Sleeping up to six guests comfortably, there are three bedrooms.
Bedroom One has a queen bed.
Bedroom Two has two single beds (can be put together as a king option).
Lastly, the third bedroom has a Cobalt king single electric adjustable bed, plus a single bed, a hoist (lifter) as well an overbed grab rail. This bedroom is located immediately next to the bathroom and has a barn door separating this space from the living area, enabling discreet transport by commode into the bathroom. These are the thoughtful considerations that Jan incorporated into the design.

Fully accessible bathroom

Owner, Johnny is a paraplegic, so naturally, he and Jan have ensured you have a fully accessible bathroom, with a toilet seat, grab rails, shower chair, commode and glide under the sink.

This accessible accommodation is pet friendly. However, animals do need to be leashed outside (as horses are coming and going) and the yard is unfenced. Please seek approval if you are bringing your furry friends, as there is a pet bond.

Pet friendly, as well as accessible pool

Aaaannnnd saving the best part until last, an accessible pool! Best of all, it is heated and indoors as well, ensuring year-round comfort. You can reserve your own private time, use the pool lifter if you need it, or grab rails to the steps.
Hollyhall Farmstay, exclusive to Accessible Accommodation, is located in the Southern Highlands of NSW. A short drive takes guests to picturesque villages, such as Berrima, as well as many local wineries, art galleries and food/tourist experiences. Hollyhall is positioned between 90 minutes to two hours to Sydney, two hours from Canberra, and an hour from Wollongong. Hollyhall isn’t just a place for people with disabilities to have respite, but their carers as well.
