Best hosted accommodation: Anglea House Bed & Breakfast, NSW

Liz is the host at Anglea House Bed & Breakfast and she knows the meaning of great country hospitality. The property was awarded the TakeABreak 2008 National Award for best-hosted accommodation and it is easy to see why.

Located in the small town of Walcha, in the beautiful and productive New England Tablelands region of New South Wales, Anglea House Bed & Breakfast is a ‘home away from home.’ The serene national park surrounding the township is part of the Central Eastern Rainforest Reserve, a World Heritage area. Just over two hours drive inland from Port Macquarie, Walcha is a beautiful part of the world. Famed for its abundant trout fishing and the magnificent Aspley Falls, Walcha is an ideal place to relax, revitalise and soak in the country air. The town’s history is linked to the celebrated overland explorer, Nat Buchanan who is buried in the town cemetery.

Liz, the friendly and welcoming host, offers comfortable accommodation for up to three people in a unique  ‘cook your own’ style bed and breakfast. Continental and 'cook your own' breakfast provisions are provided – allowing you to whip up breakfast at your leisure in the fully equipped kitchen. The property offers a spacious bedroom with queen-size bed and ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. The separate living room caters for a child or a third adult with a comfortable sofa bed.

The B&B is equipped with everything you need for a relaxing break. From the linen to the DVD player, electric blankets and beyond… almost everything you could need is included. Privacy is a central feature of this delightful property, a separate guest entrance and off-street undercover parking will ensure easy access and privacy no matter whether you stay a night or a week.

Situated 20 kms east of Walcha is some of the most remarkable scenery in eastern Australia. The mesmerising Apsley Falls, which plummet into the Apsley Gorge, form part of the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park. The sheer size of the gorge presents the visitor with breathtaking views from the many vantage points around the gorge rim. The area also features a number of significant Aboriginal sites. In addition, the Tia Falls (44 km east of Walcha), occupies one of the most beautiful gorge sites on the New England's eastern escarpment. The Macleay Gorges Wilderness Area and the Werrikimbe National Park provide a pleasant escape to solitude, bush walking, canoeing or fishing. Riverside, in the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park, is the only area in Australia where visitors can gain vehicular access (4WD only) to a wilderness core.

Anglea Bed and Breakfast perfectly combines hospitality with privacy, comfort and relaxation and the opportunity for active outdoor pursuits. A great place to plan your next break and a deserving winner of the 2008 TakeABreak Award for Hosted Accommodation.
