Running Creek Cottage is a 100-year-old farmhouse located on a 670-acre cattle farm and home of Running Creek Beef. Sleeping up to 6 people (additional charges per guest for 3+ guests) surrounded by the breath-taking McPherson Ranges, this fully self-contained home with its modern country style is complimented by spectacular farm scenery from every window.
Fill your days roaming the Scenic Rim country-side enjoying locally produced products and farm-gate experiences or stay onsite enjoying the mountain-spring water-filled Running Creek, as you swim, kayak, fish, spot the turtles, platypus and spectacular bird-life in this beautiful creek. Relax under the Cottages pergola and get back in touch with nature as you watch the cattle and horses play at your fence.
At night light the fire pit and roast marshmallows under a magical night sky smothered in glittering stars. During winter the wood-burning fireplace will ensure a warm and toasty evening. With so many inclusions including a SMEG 6 burner gas cooker and electric oven, foodie essentials such as charcuterie boards and wine glasses, comfy mattresses, quality bed linen and towels, plus much more youll love your stay at Running Creek Cottage.
Pre-order Running Creek Beef’s farm-raised grass-fed beef via the website.
