About the property

Guest Comments: April 2015

Thanks for a lovely stay at Rudders Close, we had such a relaxing time. The cabin is located in such a picturesque position, taking in the beautiful view across green hills, lush forrest and down to the river junction. We were lucky enough to see a wonderful electrical storm off the coast on the Saturday evening. The outdoor shower as night is a must!!! The cabin itself was perfectly set up for a quick sojourn out of Sydney. And what a treat to arrive to a load of freshly baked bread. We loved our weekend at Rudders Close and are already planning our next trip there. Thank you, Scott and Katie

Rudders River Cottage, a recently completed self contained studio offers a modern, stylish, warm and comfortable private space for couples, travelling professionals and small families. It has been architecturally designed and features beautifully crafted red ironbark and floor to ceiling windows which capture glorious views of the Wang Wauk, Coloongalook river junctions. The queen bedroom has a private terrace and ensuite bathroom. Extra guests can be accomodated on a comfortable pull out sofa bed in the living area.

The open plan living space has a well equipped kitchen and living room with woodfired oven and spills out onto a spacious BBQ deck which also has spectacular views.

The outdoor shower which boasts hot and cold water allows for a fabulous experience either in the daylight enjoying the wonderful view or being enveloped in the velvety star spangled milky way after dark.

Rudders River View Cottage is located on 48 beautiful undulating acres of hobby farm. The owners are trying to achieve a level of self sustainability and have Black Angus steers, Boer goats, chickens and veggie beds.

The stay includes a continental breakfast of freshly home baked bread and jams, homemade yoghurt and granola and some real free range eggs.

On the mid north coast 2 hours and 40 minutes north of Sydney. Eight minutes from Nabiac, a thriving buzzy little town which has the local hotel/pub, cafes, craft, vintage, recycled and gift shops and the national the Motorcycle museum. It's well worth a visit.

It is 30 minutes from Forster, Taree, Gloucester and Bulahdelah and surprisingly only 20 minutes from the closest beach at Blackhead or 45 minutes from the pristine Boomerang and Bluey's beaches.

It is very well located for travelling professionals who need to be close to the nearest towns, businesses and hospitals but want fresh air, space and privacy. Look forward to your nights accommodation- no more dreary motel rooms.

Secluded scenic retreat

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic, well designed and stylish property. There are stunning views from bedroom, bathroom and deck areas. Paul was very welcoming and the fresh baked bread, coffee, herbs and other supplies were a treat. The property is secluded enough that you feel almost immediately relaxed, but close enough to the village of Nabiac and a selection of good shops and cafe. A great stay if you are looking for a recharge surrounded by nature.

Such a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

My two dogs and I had a wonderful and relaxing mini break. The cottage is great with everything you need and it is so tastefully furnished. The location is beautiful and the views spectacular. The dogs loved the open space and ran around like little maniacs. Paul, Chantel and the boys were so welcoming, hospitable, accommodating and respectful of my privacy. I loved the special touches of the home baked bread, freshly ground coffee and other breakfast supplies so I could start the day off right. We hit the beaches during the day and relaxed in style at night time. Thank you again and I would definitely return if I am in the area again.

This is a very professional set up. Privacy absolutely respected. It is off the beaten track but worth the short detour. Very scenic and everything for the guests considered. A very special place and will return. PS Our 2 small dogs welcomed.

Simply beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last year in May and couldn't have had a better time. The hospitality we received was second to none. The owner provided delicious breakfast each morning of eggs, home made yogurt and home made bread and was always available when ever we needed anything. We also had the pleasure of enjoying one of the owners home made Indian meals with a South African desert, which was to this day the most delicious Indian meal We have ever had! If you go, I'd highly recommend ordering one of their meals.

The cottage itself was perfect. Very modern, with breathtaking views, and we were kept very warm by a gorgeous fireplace. Our little girl had lots of fun looking at the animals on the property and running about. We were also surprised how close we still were to some gorgeous beaches. It really was a perfect getaway with our little one year old. We will definitely be back.
