We are a family of 5 that all lead busy lives in Sydney where we rarely give ourselves the time to stop and breathe. We had been dreaming of buying a farm for years where we could all ‘disconnect to reconnect’ – whether it be with just ourselves, or with extended family or friends.

We spent years dreaming, researching and looking at different country towns. We wanted that raw secluded quintessential Australian landscape with a breathtaking view to watch the sunset with a glass of wine and have a town that offered some tourist attraction.

We kept getting drawn back to Mudgee for its outstanding natural beauty, rolling hills, world renowned wineries and food. 

Our first family home in Sydney where our 3 children were born and raised, was a 1900 federation home and was called ‘Glenayr’ … so as a romantic gesture, my husband Michael surprised me by naming the farm ‘Glenayr’.

As soon as we saw Glenayr Farm, it was love at first sight for both of us. It has views that take your breath away with the unrivalled views of the sunsets and incredible vistas over one of the most beautiful areas in the region. At night, the sky explodes to life as the area is a premier stargazing sites in Australia.

We know you too, will fall in love with this space.

Michael and Rachel


Glenayr Farm allows you to go off the grid, escape the stress of everyday life and soak up the wonderful Australian nature without sacrificing luxury or comfort. Many steps have been taken to ensure your mind, heart and body will be refreshed while minimising your impact on the environment.

With climate change and constant education of reducing our urban footprint, we decided to build Glenayr Farm 100% off grid providing accommodation with a point of difference with luxury Glamping and romantic villas.
