There is a particular type of holiday-goer who makes decisions based on very specific details about the accommodation they intend to stay in. For some (more than you might think), that detail is an al fresco bath tub. Such a detail is one of many winning qualities of The Gully, one of four charming stays on the property of Budgee Budgee Farm located a 15 minute drive outside the centre of Mudgee in central west New South Wales.

The Gully is an appealing one bedroom cottage nestled among the trees. The oeuvre of the lodgings is accessible antique charm — deep Prussian blue walls complement the timber floorboards and antique furnishings, vintage light fixtures and framed botanical illustrations on the walls. An antique bed frame of the cushy queen mattress is updated with fresh sheets, plump pillows and cosy throws.

The cooler months are when the Mudgee is particularly compelling — when wine tastings, fireplaces and extended long weekends are all de rigueur. And The Gully is a mere ten minute's drive away from some of the best local vineyards, breweries and dining spots in the region. With that said, it's the onsite options that give this accommodation its allure.

Case in point: the claw foot bath perched amid the trees on a platform, positioned specifically so bathers can take in a view of the dam and property while soaking.

There is also an indoor bathroom with shower, a fully stocked kitchen complete with a stove, crockery and a Nespresso machine. There's also an indoor wood-burning fireplace and an outdoor fire pit, ensuring your every move is kept flame-y and warm so long as you need the assistance of heat and atmosphere.

Getting the different accommodations of Budgee Budgee Farm ready for guests was a labor of love and passion project for the group behind the property which includes the team behind Sydney-based design studio Worktones plus partners and friends. The result is as tastefully considered as you might anticipate. You can book The Gully at Budgee Budgee Farm on Airbnb.
