Magical, romantic, sophisticated and tranquil.
'Somewhere Unique' has it all!

A picturesque location, hidden beautifully amidst the many attractions that make the Hunter Valley a desirable destination.
This environmentally friendly hideaway is any couples haven, throw in the unforgettable customer service and you have a recipe for addiction.

I for one, will be making a hasty return.

WOW, everything you need has been thought about. The accommodation is fantastic! From the very comfortable bed, to the huge bathroom and well equiped kitchen we couldn't have asked for more. We had our meals provided, which included the freshest of produce, a fantastic chicken curry and the best Scotch Fillet steaks we have had in years. Cooking breakfast and a dinner out on the barbecue looking out over the neighbouring bush and farm land was a pleasure. Loved it!

Room Tip: Either cabin is awesome

Fantastic place if you want to get away as a couple somewhere other than hotel etc and enjoy the lofty bush outlook. Every possible convenience catered for even push bikes to ride into town for some wine tasting, cafe or the Tavern.

My partner and I were beyond impressed by the standard Murray and David had set at Somewhere Unique. We noticed all of our needs were thoroughly attended to and attention to detail was perfect. The retreat was in immaculate condition upon our arrival and only got better from there. The location is beautiful and peaceful - with the occasional car driving past - by otherwise a serene area. We both agree that the service we experienced was exceptional value for money and we will be sure to return in the future.

Room Tip: The Lowanna retreat was closer to the road however did not present any issues with traffic noise - also had a view of neighbouring paddocks

Thank you, mattroffey, for your fantastic review!

We try to view the accommodation we offer, as if we were guests - and we are very fussy! So we are very pleased that you appreciated it and enjoyed your getaway.

The Wollombi Valley is a perfect little enclave away from the world, and we are pleased that we could share it with you. We look forward to you returning.

Thanks again!

We've stayed here three times now and will definitely go back - it really is perfect! We have a lot of fun choosing "add-ons" at the checkout online and so end up with all the food we need (or more!) for an entire weekend. This makes it so easy to hibernate and relax. There are a lot of personal touches that really add to the experience - the message next to the door, for example, says "welcome back" if you've been there before. We were thrilled this time to also find a small gift waiting for us inside.

Congratulations, cazbeckett, and thank you for choosing to stay at 'Somewhere Unique' three times! Obviously you have enjoyed your getaways with us, and we look very forward to your fourth!

We are also pleased you took advantage of the many additional extras available when booking. Nothing beats a cosy country feast in front of the fire on a cold winters night!

Thank you again for choosing 'Somewhere Unique' and thank you for your kind review.
