Southdown Stable - Self-contained Cottage

Accommodation in Bowral

Southdown Stable is located in the grounds of historic Southdown and was the original horse stables of the Burradoo estate near Bowral (built 1857). The building was used as a stable during the estate’s long history as a riding school.


The Stable has been lovingly converted into a very cosy and attractive self-contained 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom cottage for 2 – 4 or 6 guests, just 3 minutes’ from Bowral CBD.


Decorated and appointed in a "between the wars" (1920s) decor, Southdown Stable invites you to unwind into the slower pace of times now past.


Southdown Stable has 2 queen bedrooms: a queen bedroom adjacent to the open plan area that has an additional king single bed with a separate shower bathroom. The open plan area has a lounge/dining/kitchenette with a rustic ambience. A separate wing has another large queen bedroom with an additional single bed and an ensuite bathroom with hip bath and separate shower. A wood fire (in winter April-August), gas central heating, ceiling fans and all the necessary modern facilities blend with the artefacts and domestic utilities of the period to make for a most memorable accommodation stay. Southdown Stable offers a very special self-contained accommodation experience in the authentic recreation of a romantic earlier time.


Full linen and an initial 2 day complementary basket breakfast is provided.

The 6 acre historic garden beckons you to enjoy and offers total relaxation. You can take a 3 minute drive or 15 minute stroll into Bowral for restaurants or shopping.

Thanks Again,

Tony Richards.


What a wonderful place Southdown Stable (Cottage) is, as soon as Kristine and I opened the door it was like going back in time, so homely, so cosy, real old world charm. It brought back many memories when I lived in the country.

We both enjoyed the quiet hospitality, the log fire and just nestling back with a nice wine and enjoying the atmosphere, truly enjoyable.

Also enjoyed the many antique, knick knack, coffee shops and restaurants in Bowral.

Only one disappointment, with the weather we did not get the chance to have a stroll around the estate or visit other garden areas, maybe next time.

In closing, our stay was very memorable, we will definitely stay with you again and we will have no hesitation recommending the Southdown Estate and in particular Southdown Stable as a uniquely place to stay.


Kind Regards,

Ron and Kristine Smith
