The energy of the place is such that you will immediately and arrestingly feel healed, and nurtured.
Few of us are lucky enough to call this beautiful region home – most of us are probably urban, likely rushed, stressed, harried and tired. Sometimes we just need a place like this to recharge our batteries for a time.
We will tell you upfront - when you’re at the property you just won’t want to leave. There’s lots of things you can do during your stay; you can enjoy fishing or picnicking on the river; visiting surrounding historic towns such as Dungog, Paterson or Morpeth; walking in the nearby World Heritage-listed Barrington Tops National Park; taking a BBQ lunch to Chichester Dam or exploring Australia’s famous Hunter Valley wine district.
Originally built as a getaway for RM Williams Chief Executive Group – it is now available to anyone needing to dip their toe into a place that soothes the soul. Perfect for families and friends to stay for holidays or just the weekend, all rooms have a private bathroom, which is essential for communal stays. Importantly, there is plenty to keep the kids entertained (and you in peace!).
We have a swimming pool, a spring-free trampoline, a cubby house, a media/playroom – and not least, wide-open spaces, fresh country air and nature. If peace and solitude is what you are seeking – well we have that in spades.
Our beautiful homestead is everything your mind runs to when you think about a country escape. Fully renovated, the property can sleep up to 12 guests with all bedrooms opening onto the generous wrap-around verandah. The main homestead sleeps 8, featuring 4 large bedrooms (3 queen and 1 twin), each with their own bathroom. Along the verandah there are 2 lovely extra queen bedrooms with ensuites to accommodate a further 4 guests, which are available at an additional cost.
Superbly equipped, the large country-style gourmet kitchen is fully furnished with all the mod cons you expect – new appliances, including huge fridge/freezer, microwave, coffee machine, dishwasher and Smeg cooktop and oven. The superb lounge / dining area is complete with comfortable lounge and armchairs, a large dining table and combustion fire.
