Ken and Monica Wren purchased Carrawobitty Homestead in 2012 and over the next five years completed the restoration of this unique and iconic property.
Carrawobitty Rural Retreat is a grand two story concrete homestead built in 1926, in a unique architectural style. We are situated 13km from the township of Forbes in the Central West of New South Wales. The house is nestled into 5 acres of country gardens on the bank of Carrawabitty Creek. It has recently been extensively renovated to a impeccably high standard. There are 4 rooms with ensuite bathrooms, a further 4 rooms with two shared bathrooms on the first floor and a disabled accessible room with an ensuite bathroom on the ground floor. The house is furnished with period furniture to take our guests back in time to a relaxed bygone era.
We have accommodation for up to 18 guests and can host events of up to 150 guest indoors. Larger special outdoor events can be held on the lawn. We also conduct a range of theme nights throughout the year. In addition, we have modern conference room facilities with WiFi coverage throughout the building and the surrounding gardens.
What ever the reason, whether it is a get together for work, to celebrate with family and friends or to relax with your partner; we are here to help and to provide you with the perfect location to suit your needs.
