Overview

About the property

Knights Ridge is a 25 acre property set amongst the rolling hills of Laguna in the southern Hunter Valley. As it is off the main roads and so very quiet, you feel completely secluded but you are only a short 15 minute drive to the charming, historic town of Wollombi and 40 mins from the Hunter Valley’s central wine district of Pokolbin. The ‘Creekside Cabin’ combines Sustainable Living with Comfort. The 3 bedroom, self-contained cabin has been beautifully decked out with all you could need and sleeps up to 8 people. A perfect retreat for couples, families or groups.

There are many local wineries in the Wollombi Valley or venture a little further to the heart of the Hunter and Pokolbin. Wollombi is a gorgeously quaint convict built town with a historic gaol and courthouse, now a museum. Visit the Wollombi Tavern and enjoy the famous Dr Jurds Jungle Juice. The Great North Road in Laguna and Wollombi is also spotted with artistic sculptures, including the giant ants of the The Great Northern Trading Post in Laguna. There are also several properties in the Hunter Valley to enjoy horseriding. If you are lucky enough to stay for a long weekend, the Wollombi Markets are a must see!!

Knights Ridge has a cosy modern and very memorable decor and layout providing many unique places to find moments of retreat. Forget time and watch the sunrise through the mountain vistas while perched on many of the rock lookouts right through to evening creekside sunsets nestling behind the mountain kissed fields. You will never want to leave....

Facilities - modern newly built yet eclectic and rustic with many spaces to retreat to

The renovated kitchen (compact layout) is fully equipped with everything you need to cook and serve a simple meal or an elaborate gourmet spread (including a hooded Weber Q200 BBQ on deck). Toast over gas stove. Small solar bar fridge - larger gas fridge available on request for larger long stay groups. We provide the essentials such as salt, pepper, spices, spreads, rice/olive oil along with tea, coffee & sugar. The Kitchen stove and hot water run on gas but everything else is solar-powered. Water conservation and solar not compatible with air/conditioning or a dishwasher...relish in the memorable conversations over washing and drying!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This place was the perfect getaway, there is plenty of space, a porch that receives beautiful sun at the end of the day to have a wine on. I would defiantly come back!

A beautiful example of what can be achieved "off-grid" these days! Surprisingly spacious and luxurious. Perfect get away, so close to Sydney!

Stunning Eco Property

  • 5 of 5

A very big 'Thank You' to Michelle & Wayne for sharing their stunning property with others. The website does not do it justice! Although only there for three nights - it felt like a week. Can't wait to return.

Tranquil and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Loved our short stay at Knights Ridge. Our boys spent most of their time outdoors exploring the property or playing with the sport equipment provided. The scenery is gorgeous and there was lots of wildlife including wallabys, goannas, lyre birds and wombats. We were impressed by the well stocked eco friendly cottage - really quirky and comfortable. Thanks Michelle and Wayne
