Dear Celeste and Stephen,
Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou for a most enjoyable stay.
Your hospitality and warmth far exceeded my expectations.
My bed was heavenly, breakfast delicious and the view stunning.
Oh, and the log fire amazing…
I would definitely recommend Cloudfarm to family and friends…
Sue, from Sydney.
Cloudfarm is a 33 acre property perched on the highest point of the Illawarra escarpment about 7 minutes drive from Robertson. At just under 800 metres above sea level, the property enjoys spectacular views of the surrounding escarpment towards the ocean. With approximately one third of the property comprising a rare remnant of the local temperate rainforest, Cloudfarm is home to a diversity of local animals and plants. It is a unique and beautiful place.
At the end of a winding fern fringed driveway at the very top of Mt Murray, a large galvansied iron shed is the workplace of artists Celeste Coucke and Stephen Fearnley. Completed in 2010, Cloudfarm Studio is the culmination of a long held dream to live and create in an inspiring place, transforming thought into form.
Below the studio a long, low mud brick house is home to the artists. The southern wing of their home is a fully self-contained guest apartment- the Cloudpad- with breathtaking views of the escarpment towards the Tasman sea.

The Cloudpad is spacious and inviting. Comprising generous living space for two people, the accommodation includes a comfortable queen-sized bed, cosy fire place, full kitchen, bathroom and laundry. A delicious breakfast of cloudfarm organic eggs and locally grown produce completes the picture.
