Located in the Southern Highlands in regional NSW (1.5 hours from Sydney Airport), Seymour House offers luxury accommodation, a country living experience, and a place for bespoke events. Built in the early 1900’s, the former residence of the old dairy farm, this 3,500sqm property is surrounded on 2 sides by the beautiful Seymour Park (off leash dog) with private access to the park and overlooking Moss Vale Golf Club. So much more than a venue, over the years, Seymour House has developed into a space for sharing beautiful experiences.
Chelsea Gardens is the production arm of Seymour House. It is the creation of stylist, Georgia Ashdown, and chef, Alexander Watts. Chelsea Gardens offers bespoke events and dining experiences.
