LAST STOP AMBLEDOWN BROOK

Bed & Breakfast   
Self Contained Vintage Train Accommodation
 

ABOUT

We have been operating our bed and breakfast for over 20 years. As your hosts, we seek to provide relaxed and friendly country hospitality with an eye for the little things that we trust will make your stay truly memorable.

Ideal for couples or families and groups, The Last Stop Ambledown Brook is just 20 minutes from Canberra - the perfect place to unwind and relax in a unique and quiet rural setting, surrounded by mountains and award winning wineries.

Well behaved children are welcome. However, as we live on 40 acres with plenty of things to climb and explore, a watchful eye should be kept on your child/ren. When using the pool facilities they must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

OUR CARRIAGES

The Melbourne Tram took to the rails in 1929 and was retired in 1979. It now sits atop the highest point of our land overlooking the Brindabella ranges.
