Nestled between Laguna and Wollombi (both 10 minutes away) and 2 hours away from Sydney, the House at Pemmenunna is your escape from it all. Set on a ridge with views overlooking the Watagan Creek and Milsons Arm valleys, the house is solar powered (generator backup) with gas stove and refrigerator, slow combustion oven for chilly nights, luxury linens and towels. Fully equipped kitchen to cook your favourite roasts, Weber BBQ for summer nights, and breakfast on the verandah shaded from the sun overhead. There is a stereo to plug in your iPod, listen to CDs, a wide variety of books, magazines and games to while away the day and night, and 91 acres for bushwalking.
No pets please. There is a wide variety of animal life around including kangaroos, wombats, goannas, and many types of birds who like to visit the dam for a drink.
There is 6kms of dirt road to the house. The track to the house is regularly graded and and is passable by car. However, unless you are have experience driving on a dirt road, we recommend a AWD or 4WD vehicle.
House Information, Rates, and Things to Do
The house sleeps a maximum of 6 adults. We can also provide a baby cot and you're welcome to bring your own. Both the master and second bedrooms have queen size beds. The living room has a very comfortable pull out double sofa bed with a real mattress. The master bedroom has views overlooking the valley while the second bedroom looks out to the dam and forest. The entire house has beautiful wood flooring.
There is a full terracotta tiled bathroom with separate shower, toilet, bathtub, chandelier and cathedral windows. For your comfort, there is also a separate toilet in the laundry/utility room. We provide all bedding and towels.
There is no television or DVD player. Instead, we have a large selection of games, books, and magazines for your enjoyment!
If you feel like exploring the area by car, we are not far from several boutique wineries in and around Wollombi such as Cedar Creek and Undercliff wineries. We highly recommend them. There is also the Wollombi pub and the Laguna Wine Bar which both serve food and drink if you feel like socialising with the very friendly locals.
As the house is on 91 acres of bush, we also recommend bushwalking. Just go out the front door and follow several paths which wind around the house. There are some challenging hills and beautiful scenery around. Follow the ridge above the water tank behind the house and you will see a panoramic view of Laguna and Wollombi and the surrounding valleys.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to cook and serve a simple meal or an elaborate gourmet spread. You only need to bring along the food that you would like to cook. We also provide the essentials such as salt, pepper, spices and olive oil along with breakfast cereals, oatmeal, tea and coffee.
For chilly nights, there is a supply of kindling and firewood for the slow combustion oven.
