About two and a half hours west of Sydney, over the Blue Mountains, lies the regional city of Bathurst. A beautiful, historical country town of about 33,ooo population.
Bathurst has a good choice of dining experiences from cafes and patisseries to hotel bistros and higher end restaurants. Favourites- The Hub cafe (especially breakfast and lunch), Legal patisserie cafe (possibly the best citron tarts in existence), The Church for fancy pizza in an historic setting and Cobblestone Lane for a special occasion.
Just out of town is a great little place to stay – The Coach house at Perthville. True peaceful country lodgings in a charmingly renovated coach house with stable doors, original fittings and modern conveniences.
Enjoy the warmth of a slow combustion fire, comfortable lounge area, a cute vintage kitchen with modern appliances, a newly appointed bathroom and luxury beds for a restful stay. All natural brickwork and recycled wood add to the warmth and atmosphere. Delicious local origin food supplies are included – enjoy free range eggs and local bacon, excellent Fish River roasters coffee, flavoursome organic milk, fresh sourdough bread and cultured Pepe Saya butter.
