Overview

About the property

Cabin set in its own valley

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....

Why Michelle Zwar chose Laguna

Its been a labour of love building this eco-cabin on this stunning piece of land. Every season is glorious in this part of the world for different reasons. The space has allowed us to plant hundreds of trees. It has also provided a beautiful escape from busy sydney life. The land, the native animals and birds and space have provided a perfect retreat which we are so happy to share with others.

What makes this cabin unique

Seclusion and space. Kids love this place to explore, adults enjoy peace or bringing friends along and sharing food and wine in the countless places to sit. we have put benches and tables all over the property so that people can enjoy every time of day in the outdoors. Golden hour just before sunset is sensational as the sun's rays come through the row of tall Poplar trees. The sounds of lyre birds, which are all over the property, are amazing. resident wombats and kangaroos start to come out during the late afternoon. Looking at the stars in the night from the open field is spectacular. At night sit and read in one of the two large sitting areas in the cabin, sit by the fire and enjoy some local wine.

Magical charming relaxing spot

  • 5 of 5

Lovely rustic cottage. The pictures dont do it justice. Fully equipped kitchen. Cosy nights in front of the fire. Afternoon glasses of wine outside enjoying the country views. Our dogs were very happy running around and exploring. Nice places to eat nearby The Great Northern Trading Post and Myrtle House.

Lots of wildlife. We saw Alpacas, Wallabies, Kangaroos and Wombats.

Amazing!

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!

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.
