Only a 3 hour drive North from Sydney, overlooking the magnificent Manning Valley, is Manning Valley Hideaway at Artisans On The Hill.
Ideal for Groups or just a quiet getaway, this self-contained home away from home is perfect as a base for family gatherings, sporting groups, team building or creative pursuits in Artisans Workshop. Your hosts, Peter and Christine live in a different wing on-site and are happy to sit with you over coffee to let you in on the hidden secrets of the Manning Valley.
Manning Valley Hideaway at Artisans On The Hill is also Pet Friendly. Well behaved pets are welcome inside (but not on our furniture or linen). Warm timber flooring throughout means no carpets to gather pet hair! Please bring your pet's own bedding for their stay. Please note - the property is NOT fenced.
The large, sealed parking area is ideal for boats, coaches and other awkward vehicles. There is even some under cover parking available by arrangement.
There are 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms plus a large fully equipped kitchen and living area, all reverse cycle air-conditioned of course. (Note: One queen room is allocated per 2 guests. Should you require additional rooms for single occupancy, a surcharge applies - see rates). Your beds are all made up with fresh linen, environmentally friendly toiletries and large fluffy towels. There is a hamper of breakfast goodies to get you started and of course real coffee and tea supplies are always on hand!
The large screen television and sound bar allows you to enjoy the vast library of movies, or perhaps you just want to curl up with a good book from the huge eclectic collection.
Free WiFi is there for those who need to remain connected while staying.
Artisans On The Hill is strictly a No Smoking property (including the grounds) and we do ask that you respect our wishes in that regard.
Located only a stone's throw from the village of Tinonee, and larger centres of Wingham and Taree, you get the benefits of a quiet rural location with easy access to all "The Valley" (made famous by local best selling author, Di Morrissey) has to offer.
The famous "Tip Track" - Mountain Bike Trail through Kiwarrak Forest is 5km away and the Beaches at Old Bar, Wallabi Point and Saltwater are about 20 minutes from your door.
For more information on the area, suggest you web search Visit Manning Valley.
Should you like to experience something different during your stay, spend some time in the Artisan Gallery on site, with functional pieces from some of Australia's best Artisans. Better still, try a workshop with your hosts, Peter & Christine, who can teach you things like woodturning, silver jewellery making, kiln formed glass and lots more. Lots of fun things for kids to make too!
Artisans Retreat / Artisans On The Hill has operated as a traditional B&B for several years, but with the addition of more bedrooms and the kitchen/living area, has made the shift to self contained accommodation - just for you!
