Great time away with the family
If you want quiet, peaceful and enjoyable quality family time this is it. There is no reception so all our devices didn't work which is just what my family needed. Total peace and quiet, kids spent the time exploring, bushwalking and making as much noise as they wanted knowing that there really wasn't anyone around. The house itself is beautifully renovated and our stay was just the thing that we needed. It's not too far away from Wollombi to pick up anything that you need and only about half an hour away from Cessnock in case you need a bigger shopping centre. Just loved it.
This was the perfect property for our needs, which was family getting together for a wedding. Not only did it suit our needs, I would recommend this place and owner to anyone wishing to thoroughly enjoy themselves in the region, quite simply magnificent.
Beautiful Property, Wonderful Experience!
Five friends and I stayed at Pepper Tree Cottage over the Easter 2104 long weekend, and we could not have asked for a better experience. The property is just as fantastic as the photos demonstrate: a wonderful combination of quaint cottage style and clean modern comfort. Each of the three bedrooms in the main cottage had their own bathroom, the kitchen was well equipped, clean and modern, the decking overlooking the beautiful pool and surrounding fields and hills was just perfect. There was plenty of room for everyone and we had just about everything we needed and more. Peter, who let us into the Cottage and gave us a tour, was very friendly. Wollombi itself is just lovely: small town with some nice cafes and restaurants, a couple of cellar doors in the town itself, and some great local wineries where we loved purchasing a variety of wines and liquers to enjoy of an evening. I cannot recommend this property highly enough: everything we needed, very comfortable and a very reasonable price.
