It is the perfect place to escape to this Summer if you're craving nature and some stunning accommodation.

Osbourne house is a unique boutique hotel 'where relaxed retreat and playful guesthouse meet.' The rooms range from cozy, wooden cabins, to European-inspired rooms that exude an old-world abundant ambience. The dining experience tells stories of the seasons, as does the produce they use. They also offer a 'fire feast' which their executive head chef Segundo Farrell learned the art of from Latin American food icon Francis Mallman.


Tucked away in the Southern Highlands amongst rolling hills and thick green pastures lies Tiny Edmond. This is the place to get away from it all. It's 2.5 hours southwest of Sydney. You need a four-wheel drive to get there before walking a few hundred metres to the spot. Once there you will find a cabin, a firepit and a lot of clean air. Fully stocked, it's ready for you to spend a few blissful days in peace.
