Overview

About the property

Situated on a 20 acre equestrian property just 2kms from the centre of historic Wollombi village and a 2 hour drive from Sydney, Applegums is a stylish modern cottage built in traditional colonial style. It has a beautiful outlook, easy access, two bedrooms and a fully equipped kitchen.

We are pet-friendly and welcome dogs, cats and horses by arrangement. Before booking please take note of the Pet Owners Conditions at the foot of this page.

Breakfast supplies are included in our rates and our aim is to leave you in peace to enjoy this special location. However we are on hand should you need anything during your stay.

Relax on the deck and enjoy the views, walk on nearby bush trails, or keep cosy in front of the woodburner in winter with one of our local wines. Attend one of the many Hunter Valley events or go wine tasting at some of the most renowned wineries of the region.

Accommodation:

The cottage has a spacious open-plan living area with comfortable leather sofas that you cannot resist snuggling into; the wood-burner provides a comfortable ambient temperature and a cosy atmosphere on a wintery day. The cottage is set up for both indoor & outdoor dining with settings for four, and has complimentary Foxtel TV including sport channels. There is also a music player with iPod dock, ceiling fan and reverse cycle air-conditioning.

WiFi access is available and Wollombi is serviced by both Telstra and Optus for mobile coverage.

The over-sized kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave, full size oven and ceramic hob, so whether you decide to stay in or eat out your needs are well catered for.

The lounge, dining area and both bedrooms lead out to a traditional wrap-around verandah which has beautiful views over paddocks, dams and rolling hills. There is an outdoor setting on the verandah so that you can soak in the views while you enjoy a cocktail or a hot chocolate. There is also a Weber BBQ.

One bedroom has a queen bed, the second bedroom has two single beds with double doonas.

The bathroom has a vanity, walk-in shower, toilet and washing machine.

Pets:

Applegums is owned and managed by animal lovers and is home to several horses, two Shetland ponies Magic and Merlin, two cats and Crazy Daisy the Jack Russell Terrier. We welcome your dogs, cats and horses by prior arrangement.

For your dog:

We have a secure garden with fencing 1m high; dogs are allowed indoors and we provide an outside kennel.

There is no charge for one dog; $25 per weekend for a second dog.

For your cat: please note that there is no secure outdoor area for cats and we are surrounded by bushland and paddocks. We provide a litter tray.

For your horse: please contact us for information.

Activities and Events:

We offer massage in your cottage by a qualified remedial massage therapist.

Wollombi has a historic Tavern, cafes, wineries, walking and scenic drives, as well as markets and events.

Lovely Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Nice little property, quite cosy and was whisper quite on our stay (a lovely change from the city). If you are looking for a semi secluded, modern farm cottage this fits the bill. Location was great, far enough away from what can be a busy hunter region but close enough that it wasn't an issue for day trips. The drive to/from is also quite pleasant. Hosts were friendly and helpful. pet friendly aspect was also very helpful. If we were planning another quick weekend away we would be back.

Fantastic, pet-friendly stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much! Our little beagle enjoyed the garden and paddocks and playing with Daisy the dog! We had fresh bread, bacon and eggs left for us and the cottage was warm, inviting and tranquil!

We will be back!

Peaceful Property

  • 4 of 5

There were 5 of us in a 2 bedroom property so obviously a little cramped but the property was lovely and warm with the wood fire going all the time.
