Additional Information

The Stables has three bedrooms. In the Toolroom is a Queen bed and  an extra single bed. In the Chaff Room is one double ensuite, and in the Loft upstairs another queen bed and an additional two singles if needed. The Loft  has a TV/sitting area.  There is a second bathroom next to the Toolroom which also services the Loft.

The Stables has a combined kitchen, dining living area and another sitting room in the old School Room below the upstairs loft. Tea, coffee, milk and full kitchen facilities including a dishwasher and BBQ in outside courtyard also available.

The Dairy has a double bed/ensuite and an extra single bed in the enclosed verandah. There is an additional single sofa bed in the combined kitchen/living area.

Both buildings are  privately located in the 3 acre grounds of the homestead at the centre of a 2500 acre property, Godolphin which has been in our family since 1839.

There are numerous walks on the property and close by the cornish settlement of Byng with its historic sandstone church.

A short drive away  there are many wineries and other places  of interest such as the historic village of Millthorpe.   Orange is 22 km away and takes 20 minutes.

There is a minimum two night stay for The Stables and 1 night for The Dairy. Prices per person vary depending on the length of stay and the number of people.


If using GPS it is best to enter the GPS coordinates for the main turnoff from the Highway 32, and then use the trip meter for the last 3.5 km. Do NOT follow Miles Road which no longer exists (though often still marked) at  about 1 km further west of the BYNG turn. The decimal GPS coordinates for the BYNG turnoff  is at South 33.39442 (i.e.33 Degrees-23 Minutes-39 Seconds) and East 149.23248 (149D-13M-56S)  It is about 35 km west of Bathurst and the sign post is on the left pointing to BYNG to the right . If coming from Orange measure 16 Km from the giant flagpole as you leave town towards Bathurst and turn left. From Bathurst it is an acute angle turn to the right so be careful at night as you will have to slow to  almost a stop. Then drive 1.5 km on  bitumen until you see the sign “Godolphin” on the gates at the cattle grid in front of you. Cross the grid onto the gravel drive and go for just 2 km more down the poplar drive , around the big hill and past the sheds on your right until you reach the stables and rear entrance of the homestead. Park nose in to the stables.

Directions to Godolphin 2015

***Drive carefully and slowly on the 2 km of gravel road. Be on the lookout for livestock (black cattle are hard to see at night), kangaroos, speed bumps and occaisional pothole
