Overview

About the property

Lyrebird Studio is a secluded retreat on a rural property of over 40 hectares on the edge of the Watagan Mountains, 1.5 hours north from Sydney & 15 minutes from Cessnock. Get away from technology & unwind, listen to the wind in the trees, and observe the local bird and wildlife. The only tweeting you will hear will be from the local birds, including lyrebirds, king parrots, black cockatoos and many other species. We have two large wedgetail eagle nests up the mountain and you can often see them soaring in the updrafts they are a sight to behold! Watch out as the wombat (wallabies and kangaroos) come down to graze in the surrounding paddocks most days. At night, wombats come out to feed and the local possum population occasionally hold a noisy gathering in the bush!

Amenities include air-conditioning, a compact kitchen and living area with comfortable couches and antique furniture. A potbelly woodburning stove adds to the ambiance in the cooler months. The living room also offers a large screen TV and DVD player, radio and CD player. The bedroom has comfortable King Bed and luxury linen, including electric blankets. The bathroom has shower, all linen, and heated towel rail. A sofa bed can be made up in the living area at an additional cost.

Due to our location mobile phone reception is patchy. If you live for texting, phone calls & internet, this is not the place for you! Lyrebird Studio is meant to be a break from communication, spend some peaceful time together, and generally switch off!

The owners of this stunning Studio live in the properties main farm house approx. 50m from the back of the Studio. The Studio itself has been cleverly designed so any guests enjoying this cosy accommodation are offered privacy and seclusion.

Lyrebird Studio is self catering with a convection microwave & outdoor BBQ.

Small Dogs allowed on request only. Please contact us direct to discuss your options .

Beautiful property, stunning location

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I booked Lyrebird Studio for a mid-week 2 day stay.

The location was ideal - it was remote enough to get away from it all (we didn't have much phone reception, which was lovely!), yet still close enough to Cessnock so that we were able to spend a day visiting family-owned vineyards only a short 10-20 minute drive away.

Peter met us on arrival and was very welcoming, showing us round the property and he kindly gave us a recommendation on where to have dinner (The Royal Oak Hotel, which had lovely food).

The property was very clean, well kept and had a lovely homely feel.

We were supplied with everything we could possibly need for our stay.

Peter and Di were kind enough to tell us not to rush with our check out, as no guests were checking in the following day - we did not hesitate and asked to extend our stay by another night - we really did not want to leave :)

I have already recommended Lyrebird Studio to my friends and family and we will definitely be returning in the future.

Thank you Peter & Di for providing us with a lovely break.
