The list of luxurious stays near Sydney just keeps on growing. There's a new nature retreat and sculpture park, this fancy tiny-house in Kangaroo Valley, a secluded harbourside cottage in Vaucluse and six cottages you can reach by train. Now, joining the ranks is Jamberoo Valley Farm, which has just opened its first farm-stay set within its 65-acre property. Among its many features, it has a fireplace and outdoor hot tub — which means it's perfect for a wintry weekend escape.

The six-person, two-bedroom cottage is located along the South Coast, just a two-hour drive south of Sydney. The Scandinavian-style fit-out is thanks to Evette Moran Interiors, a design firm that is also responsible for Sydney's ultra-luxe Sol Spa and The Botanica Vaucluse — a farm-to-table eatery which sources its produce from Jamberoo Valley Farm.

The cottage's bi-fold glass doors open onto a wrap-around timber deck, which is covered in plush couches and a barbecue area. Adjacent to the deck is a Swedish hot tub (also a plunge pool during the warmer months) that offers sweeping views of the valley beyond — all the way to the ocean.

Indoors, there's a fireplace, a standalone bathtub for luxurious soaking and a separate teal-tiled rainfall shower. Plus the telly comes complete with Foxtel, Netflix and a DVD player, so you don't need to forego your daily creature comforts, either.

Beyond the cottage, guests are encouraged to interact with the surrounding organic farm — you can pick produce and herbs from your private kitchen garden, collect freshly laid eggs from the chook pen for morning brekkie and even help the staff feed the pastured-raised and grass-fed animals (cattle, sheep, pigs and chickens).

Apart from the immediate surrounds, plenty of other local attractions are within driving distance, too — including the Minnamurra rainforest, the Jamberoo Action Park, the Kiama Blowhole and heaps of local beaches.

Jamberoo Valley Farm is located at 185 Wallaby Hill Road, Jamberoo and is now open for bookings. Prices start at $420 per night with a two night minimum stay.
