Ilkley Cottages are located on 33 acres of land with the cottages nestled into the Australian bush. Each of the 3 cottages has its own unique charm and style and has been positioned to ensure our visitors complete privacy and seclusion.

The cottages all have an eclectic mix of farmhouse style antique furniture coupled with comfortable sofas and beds, functional kitchens and bathrooms that range from modern ensuites to deep claw baths.

The Perfect Romantic Getaway

Ilkley is 10 mins from Mudgee but it feels like the middle of no-where. As the quiet dark nights descend the sounds of the bush take over and then dawn brings either a quiet contemplative rest day or the interesting wineries, markets, festivals, shops and eateries located in Mudgee.

The wood fires keep the cottages warm and cozy in the winter months and air conditioning and fans keep out the summer heat.

Ilkley is perfect for romantic getaways, family holidays or large groups booking several of the cottages.
