The best accommodation in camden

A warm welcome from the Hostess of the best short and/or long stay accommodation in Camden


Hello everyone.

Many thanks to guests – both former and new – who commented on how good the new website looked. I must admit that you inspire me to do the best I can to make Camden Hillview as comfortable and relaxing a place to stay as possible.

One of Camden’s highlight events just took place – the Camden Show – and for once in a long time, it did not rain. The show, as ever, was a spectacular event, with my favourite – the working dog demonstrations. Kelpies and Collies are super wonderful, and John and I nearly came home with a Kelpie pup. But, just in time, sanity set in. The farm machinery – both old and modern – was also very interesting to investigate and I include a photo of myself standing by an old farm truck.

Today (Sunday March 18) we farewelled our latest guests who stayed for a couple of days. They were wonderfully unique as they originally came from Alaska. So there you are! not everyone can boast of having an Eskimo stay over.

On the more usual front, however, birds are visiting in increasing numbers to breakfast at Camden Hillview. They are delightful and our guests love them. Here are two photos of our early morning feathered friends calling in for a bite to eat.

Murphy, our Jack Russell, is also very happy to meet and greet the birds…..especially when a bark or two sends them flapping away, squawking at him in no uncertain terms. Another trick he has learned is how to stay cool during soaring temperatures. After a dip in the pool, he is quite partial to wearing John’s hat while drying off.

I was very surprised at how many people took a fancy to our Snail Creeper vine – so much so that John has had to re-pot three to give to enthusiasts. These vines are beautiful and fragrant, and a very welcome addition to Camden Hillview’s garden.

Our Snail Creeper has taken a very short time to grow from a mere 20 centimetre cutting to a splendid vine with numerous ”creepers”. It directly faces the back of the unit – and offers a lovely fragrant greeting to our guests

We look forward to hearing from you and assure you we will make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as you would hope. Our beautifully maintained unit is perfectly located only a couple of minutes from Camden, and is quite central to many of NSW’s best loved destinations – such as the Southern Highlands, the Blue Mountains, Wollongong and Cronulla beaches – and Sydney is only an hour’s drive from here.

Take care,
