Truly escape your everyday with some serious down time in Redleaf Carriage 343. This 1890's lovingly restored, guard’s carriage sits in a secluded corner of a 270 acre Southern Highlands farm, 5 minutes from Fitzroy Falls, and a world away from city life. Redleaf Farm provides an unforgettable experience, Carriage 343 sits somewhere between glamping and a luxury suite, and delivers a true digital detox in a beautiful, unique space. The carriage is private with rolling paddocks on one side and a magnificent grove of scribbly gums on the other.

This 1890's lovingly restored, guard’s carriage sits in a secluded corner of a 270 acre Southern Highlands farm, 5 minutes from Fitzroy Falls, and a world away from city life. Redleaf Farm provides an unforgettable experience, Carriage 343 sits somewhere between glamping and a luxury suite, and delivers a true digital detox in a beautiful, unique space. The carriage is private with rolling paddocks on one side and a magnificent grove of scribbly gums on the other. More information: The original freight van is now a master bedroom suite with a comfy bed piled high with toasty warm doonas. It has antiqued mirror walls and Juliette balconies through original parcel doors. In the central area, there are two velvet highback armchairs for reading and chatting. You can whip up a cuppa, or something more ambitious, on the Kooka oven (or bbq outside), bar fridge and small sink in the kitchenette. Keep warm in front of the original guard’s wood burning firebox with the snugly, throw blankets and cosy robes we provide. Down the corridor are two small bunks that your little people will love. The bathroom has lovely marble tiling with a large shower area and a toilet. Fittings are largely original, and include beautifully quirky details such as guard’s peep windows, the original (and functioning) brake wheel, a dining booth upholstered in Fallow deer shot on site, and pressed metal ceilings. The interior is charming with many hand crafted details balanced by touches of luxury like premium linens, lush cushions and velvet couches. Your weekend can be spent ensconced in the history and comfort of the carriage or around the outdoor fire. A dip in the French, zinc open air bath is a must! Bushwalk, explore the on-property waterfall, the adjacent state forest or ask us for a farm tour (we have pigs, hens, sheep and Highland cattle). Farm-laid, free range eggs from our hens can be delivered fresh as you’ll ever get them! Venturing out, Bowral is 20 minutes away and Moss Vale only 15 minutes. Each town has fantastic cafes, restaurants, pubs and shopping. Fitzroy Falls national park and draw-dropping escarpment is a short 5 minute drive, or an invigorating 40 minute mountain bike ride. Just like glamping, you’ll need to pack warm clothes, beanies etc, as it can be cool in the early mornings and when away from the warmth of the indoor or outdoor fire. Even in the Summer, the Southern Highlands has cool nights. More
House Rules
Pets Allowed: No
Smoking Allowed: No
Kid Friendly: Yes
The original internal doorways and spaces are small and may not be suitable for overly large or mobility impaired guests. The Carriage has minimal insulation - DRESS WARMLY... Think camping in a luxurious space. The 'luxury' is in raw, real rustic touches - beautiful timbers, skins (cow, deer and fox from Redleaf Farm) and thick towels and bedding, not in electronic mod cons!
