About this home

This magnificent country home dates from the early pioneering days of owner Karen Jarrett's family. Its handcrafted sandstone and timber features tells a story of the earliest settlement in the valley and provides a blessed setting for an unforgettable Kangaroo Valley experience.

With the spirit of a joyful soul, the house offers the comfort of modern country living with all the charm of yesteryear. Time honoured traditions are expressed in line dried linen, a country kitchen warmed by a crackling fire, fresh flowers, French bubbly, and chocolates that await each guests arrival. These traditions and gifts of generosity are like the hand woven threads of a gorgeous quilt of unpretentious splendour that makes Hampden House such a compelling experience.

To this picture add a marvellous in ground pool for summer pleasure, ducted heating and cooling, wifi, Netflix, an espresso machine for great coffee, a seasonally changing garden of mature trees, flowering beds and sweeping lawns and a picturesque river setting. Hampden House is just a 10 min stroll or a two minute cycle into the village, yet remains a peaceful little world of its own.

You can't imagine a more idyllic historic home for a romantic getaway.

    Wonderful Stay

    We have spent 2 delightful days at Hampden House. The garden leading down to the river was stunning. The pool was warm and inviting. The house itself is a beautifully restored farmhouse with wide verandahs. The attention to detail is extraordinary. The furnishings and appliances are not only very attractive but everything works and has been thought of. From the coffee machine to the towels.

    Fantastic stay

    Karen’s peppery is exceptional. She went above and beyond to make our stay special, the sponge cake, champagne, fresh bread and butter were show stoppers. The property is secluded and private but still a short walk into the main strip of Kangaroo Valley. Will definitely be back.

    It was great stay

    Property was old and quite located near Kangaroo River. Which is exactly what we needed to get away from city life. My 3 year daughter loved it and wanted to stay there more. Fresh Cake was so good. Was better if weather was not cloudy and rainy. Last day was good weather. Would love to get back there.

    A little slice of paradise

    Hampden House is a wonderful stay. Far enough out of the village to avoid any crowds close enough to walk to for a Spiced Pumpkin Latte. As described, this 4 bedroom cottage is a slice of yesteryear, with a sprinkling of family heritage throughout. The private pool was a delight on a warm summers day, and the air conditioned interior was a wonderful escape from the flies!! Karens homemade Victoria Sponge with real cream was a wonderful treat on arrival and the weekend only got better from there.

    Character, charm & immaculate gardens

    Karen provides a beautiful & homely property with no missing touches. Chilled champagne on arrival, local free range eggs for breakfast & the fluffiest towels make this stay extra special. The modern pool is a fantastic addition to this historical property & we cannot wait to return in winter to enjoy the different seasons that the area has to offer.

    Leading Host of this Industry

    The Property and surroundings exactly what is needed to get away from a hectic life. We were only on the property for one day and that even made us completely relaxed. Karen is a champion and her quality in hosting is second to none. Enjoy staying and taking a trip back in time.
