Truly Exceptional.. Could not ask for more

  • 5 of 5

We cannot recommend this property more highly if it's a relaxing weekend away you are after that's close to Sydney. Beautiful house and surrounds. The best equipped kitchen that we have ever had. Kids kept busy so adults could relax. Lovely big rooms and super comfy beds. You can't really go wrong here.

Relaxing paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a group of 7 over a very wet Easter break, but the weather did not stop us having the most wonderful, relaxing and comfortable break.

Daughters (aged 10 & 8) split their time romping around the expansive grounds searching for wombats, playing by the creek bed and entertaining the beautiful and friendly dogs next door. Adults lazed on one of the several hammocks, made the most of the amazingly well equipped kitchen which combined with the 12 seat dining table hosted some great meals, also put the great new BBQ to good use. The 3 pavilion set-up provided abundant accommodation options but also gave us plenty of space so we never felt cramped.

Furnishings were beautifully matched to the property feel, and it was very clear that each piece was carefully selected with a view to staying in place a long time. Historic Wollombi made for a great lunch trip when the sun did shine and the Easter Egg hunt was extra special inside the many rooms and extensive gardens at Knottapharm.

Host Leanne was very helpful leading up to our stay with lots of useful info, and also kindly made a phone call to check we weren't washed out by the torrential rain! We will be back again!
