Totally awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This property does not disappoint! It's a prime example of what can be achieved with a totally eco-friendly house that is off-the-grid. The view is magnificent and we did not lack for anything...except maybe some more bug spray! But we are in the countryside! No complaints! And our totally pampered dog settled in without any problems. In fact she was fascinated (and somewhat intimidated) by the cows and kangaroos! The Ridge is totally awesome and we cannot be more enthusiastic in our recommendation. Congratulations Dan on having the vision to create such a luxurious and eco-friendly house! We'll definitely be coming back!

Stunning ......

  • 5 of 5

It's easy to see why The Ridge was awarded Best People's Choice in NSW for 2014. Sitting high on a ridge, overlooking Gloucester, you have spectacular views from all the rooms. The house is beautifully appointed and has underfloor heating for the cooler months. There is quite a lot to see and do around Gloucester and The Ridge is very lucky to have The Buccan Buccan's in its own backyard. Definitely worth the walk to the top. It's breathtaking. We ran out of time to do all things we hoped to, so will definitely be back. It is a very special place.

Tree Change

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Ridge, Gloucester. It was an amazing view of the world and the peace and serenity of it was what we were looking for. Loved waking up to the sounds of nature, had the pleasure of a kookaburra joining me for my shower and between the cows and wallabies you really couldn't be any closer to nature. Have already recommended The Ridge to some friends who will be travelling here soon.
