Knights Ridge is a 25 acre property set amongst the rolling hills of Laguna in the southern Hunter Valley. As it is off the main roads and so very quiet, you feel completely secluded but you are only a short 15 minute drive to the charming, historic town of Wollombi and 40 mins from the Hunter Valley’s central wine district of Pokolbin. The ‘Creekside Cabin’ combines Sustainable Living with Comfort. The 3 bedroom, self-contained cabin has been beautifully decked out with all you could need and sleeps up to 8 people. A perfect retreat for couples, families or groups.
There are many local wineries in the Wollombi Valley or venture a little further to the heart of the Hunter and Pokolbin. Wollombi is a gorgeously quaint convict built town with a historic gaol and courthouse, now a museum. Visit the Wollombi Tavern and enjoy the famous Dr Jurds Jungle Juice. The Great North Road in Laguna and Wollombi is also spotted with artistic sculptures, including the giant ants of the The Great Northern Trading Post in Laguna. There are also several properties in the Hunter Valley to enjoy horseriding. If you are lucky enough to stay for a long weekend, the Wollombi Markets are a must see!!
Knights Ridge has a cosy modern and very memorable decor and layout providing many unique places to find moments of retreat. Forget time and watch the sunrise through the mountain vistas while perched on many of the rock lookouts right through to evening creekside sunsets nestling behind the mountain kissed fields. You will never want to leave....
