Red Cow Farm

Hubby and I visited Red Cow farm on our last trip to the Southern Highlands

It was featured in the December BHG magazine and on aired TV the night of our visit.

It was lovely to wander through and enjoy 

The  information below is from the Red Cow Farm Website

RED COW FARM is a unique cool climate garden set on 2.5 hectares in the picturesque rural village of Sutton Forest. 

Approximately 1.5 hours drive from Sydney and Canberra RED COW FARM is one of the leading gardens in the beautiful Southern Highlands region of New South Wales. 

It is a garden of beauty and deception. The simplicity of its presentation diguises a garden of sophisticated structure and ambitious schemes.

Developed by its creative owners Ali Mentesh and Wayne Morrissey around their historic 1820’s cottage, the garden is abundant and secretive. 

 You'll be both enchanted and surprised by such wonders as a walled sanctuary where solitude invites quiet reflection.

Red Cow Farm features 20 rooms with an exuberant cottage garden, monastery garden, abbess’s garden, a stunning collection of rare and unusual perennials, woodland, old fashioned roses and clematis, beech walk, lake, bog garden, orchard and kitchen garden.

Open 8 months of the year from late September to May this garden has been described as one of the best in the world.

A rare beauty awaits your visit.

Open 10am to 4pm daily, from Saturday 17 September 2011 to Sunday 13 May 2012.

Closed Christmas Day. 

 Admission fee $8 per person. 

Car and coach parking available

I had so many more photos I could have shared the garden was stunning and so much effort put into it.

It is definitely worth a visit if it is at all possible.

Have a great week


PS. I am so excited our new carpet is going in today.


  1. It's stunning! I just adore the conical buxus and there's my favourite rose, Scentimental. I love gardens that allow you to hide :)

  2. It's such a magnificent garden. The time and effort and creativity that went into creating is so obvious. It sounds like a lovely day out together. Enjoy getting your new carpet. xo

  3. Simply stunning, Nellie. I wonder if can hire the person that clips their hedge???? Have a wonderful week XOX

  4. WOW! What a spectacular place, Nellie!! How could you not enjoy your time there?? Thanks for sharing such gorgeous pictures ~ x

  5. I have always, always wanted to visit Red Cow, so I am very jealous Nellie. Your pics are lovely, you could have posted 50 more & I'd still be happily scrolling.
