One hour south of Sydney in the New South Wales Southern Highlands, you will discover Little Forest. On this historic forty acre property there are six enchanting country cottages available for short or long stays.

Little Forest is a historic country venue, catering for couples or gatherings up to 40 guests. We have hosted families, writers, artists, meditation workshops, needleworkers, cyclers, boot camps, corporate meetings, cooking classes, ceremonies, anniversaries, locums, short term mid week workers accommodation, fashion and film shoots.

Little Forest – where every day is a Sunday

“A glorious stand of paper barks, so old and unusual that they are Heritage Listed, guard the entrance to Little Forest Country Cottages like ancient sentinels. Once you pass through them, as if heading through a magical gate-way, you are quickly upon another world with a history all its own…” Sunday Telegraph, Escape 2008
