MUDGEE, in the NSW­cen­tral west, is a food lover’s paradise, with vine­yards and provi­dores at ev­ery turn. But find­ing de­cent ac­com­mo­da­tion in this gourmet es­cape three hours from Sydney can be a chore. The chic new Trelawney Farm pro­vides a tran­quil get­away amid 10ha of coun­try­side 4km from the heart of town and is ideal for ex­tended fam­i­lies or groups of friends. Ac­com­mo­da­tion is in two prop­er­ties and caters for up to 12 peo­ple. The Coach House, an orig­i­nal colo­nial dwelling built in 1890, will in­duce dec­o­ra­tor’s envy with its eclec­tic fur­nish­ings. There are three bed­rooms (one with an­tique iron dou­ble bed, a sec­ond with twin beds, the third a cute-as-a-but­ton kids’ re­treat), plus a sep­a­rate li­brary with floor-to-ceil­ing shelves hous­ing a col­lec­tion of mid-20th-cen­tury cloth-bound books. Barn End Cottage of­fers two spa­cious bed­rooms, large liv­ing space with sep­a­rate din­ing area, claw­foot bath and open fire, in a beau­ti­fully re­fur­bished farm­house. Both have ex­cel­lent kitchens, per­fect for putting some of that great Mudgee pro­duce to good use. From $2740 for two nights, based on 10 adults stay­ing (min­i­mum two nights). Two trun­dle beds are avail­able for an ex­tra $100 a night. More: trelawney­farm.com.
