Two brothers - Richard and Les, have brought to life a splendid vision for historic Henkley Farm.

Since purchasing this property, 'the boys' have toiled long and hard to renovate their homestead and outbuildings, restore old timber fences and set up home for a happy family of chickens, sheep and cows.

With its beautiful old timber farmhouse, weathered wooden fences, an array of old-timer outbuildings, stunning gardens, chicken coop, dairy, barn and stables, Henkley Farm presents an authentic picture of a late 19th Century working farm .

Historic Henkley continues its farming tradition today, but is also taking a new and special direction with the recent completion of a chapel and four self-contained cabins - all tastefully in keeping with the 'old time' aesthetics of the original buildings.

Henkley Farm.. the perfect opportunity for guests who are seeking a farm stay holiday .. a complete rest.. maybe a game of tennis, a dip in the ocean, a stroll around pastureland, a chat with some quaint, quirky animal personalities.. a spiritual retreat..something for everyone!

Here's your chance to experience country life at its best, with two delightful hosts, in beautiful Tilba.
