  • Interesting wander through the gardens/grounds which looked slightly unkempt. The cafe was not open on a Sunday. The caretaker said it was better in spring or summer. Especially the rose garden. Will ...  more »
  • The Cafe was not serving when we went there. No GF, DF or milk alternatives either. Staff need to smile! Very grim place all round.  more »

  • This place is well worth a visit as is a guided tour. It was excellent. The property is well maintained in its 1906 state. The tour guide is very good too. Lunch was also very pleasant in their cafe. Highly recommended.
  • Thrilled that all this glorious history has been kept and displayed so true to the period. Guided walk through was the icing on the cake. So so very much a must to visit.
  • Interesting tour of the homestead, outhouses , gardens and grounds. Very disappointed that photographs were unable to be taken within the home even without the flash. Interesting history never the less. Extensive rose gardens but they lack shade so tend not to take the time to really enjoy which is a pity.
  • Historic Saumarez Homestead near Armidale is a time capsule from a bygone era. Gorgeous gardens and amazing historic house. Don't forget to go down and look at the old farm buildings while there.
  • Nice homestead, with a lot of history. Just a shame they don't allow photos inside the homestead.
