We needed accommodation to pick up some sheep and found Owl Head on the net close to our farm where we had to go,and what a surprise to find this spectacular place for an unbelievable and affordable price. It is 5 star quality and the unit (Sheppard lodge) looked like brand new with everything you needed and of the best... More

To think you had to come to our area to pick up sheep, and at the same time stay in our brand new Shearers Cottages. They are very modern and we thought of all we can to make you comfortable, at a respectable price; so you will always be welcome to visit us again. Yours thankfully, Marg and The owl... More

Thanks folks for a wonderful stay. This is by far one of the best properties we have stayed at. Great accommodation, facilities and the surrounds are amazing. No fuss with reception etc and we were left to our own. so close to town and yet far enough to gain some peace

After two very good stays during summer months, we had an overnight stay with friends visiting from overseas in midwinter (2016) which was very disappointing indeed. It was embarrassing because we'd really built the place up and this was going to be a high point of their Australian visit. It was below zero outside, the window wouldn't close and the... More

Really great place to stay. Self contained agility accommodation set in the country just outside of Gulong. Easy reach and very tranquil. Facilities are very well appointed, clean and modern. There are a variety of accommodation options and rooms can be joined. Food optionsin Gulong aregood and Mudgee is very close by. Everything you need for a great weekend away.

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment, there's a kitchen and a laundry place. It is located in the middle of a big land, very quiet at night. We enjoyed the stay very much! The only cons is that there's no internet, but it doesn't matter, we're here to enjoy the nature :)

This place may be a wonderful get-away in summer, but in winter it is very chilly! Although there are wall heaters, the rooms don't retain any warmth so you wake up in the night feeling really cold. Also, the floors are tiled so they are very cold underfoot. Surely, in winter, you'd put some rugs down for comfort? The breakfast... More
