Nestled in the foothills of the World Heritage Barrington Tops National Park, within a short distance of stunning Chichester Dam and only 25mins to Dungog, this delightful cabin, exclusively set within the wilderness area is nourishment for the soul.

Designed to blend seamlessly with the environment, this corner cabin is very private and high-set to take advantage of breathtaking views. A step out of the cabin finds you on the walking trails that take you across Williams River and through the heart of the wilderness.

Immerse yourself in the pristine waters of the Williams River. A short walk through the forest of soaring gums, old growth cedars and beeches takes you to the aptly named Crystal pool. This naturally formed deep pool offers a refreshing restorative dip in one of the clearest rivers on mainland Australia. There are also a number of stunning swimming holes along the Blue Gum walking trail, a gentle walk through the majestic forest.

The cabin is well-appointed throughout with feature windows, kitchen areas with stove-top, microwave with open-plan dining/living area leading out to a balcony. Take in the views as you sit out on the historic day bed, sourced from one of the local homesteads and crafted from the superb hardwood timbers the district is celebrated for. You'll be joined most mornings by a variety of wildlife; parrots, Bush turkeys, and the resident wallaby and her joey. Lyrebirds make their nests in the grounds and are often spotted and heard from the cabin.

Indulge yourself with a spa at the end of the day. The water is sourced from the nearby river and so offers a pure, relaxing, chemical free soak.

The main queen bedroom is downstairs with 4 singles upstairs.

The cabin offers a largely tech-free retreat - if your idea of a true escape is an internet, mobile phone and TV free environment this is the spot for you Mobile phone coverage is lost once you enter the park and purposefully there is no wi-fi The on-site caretaker does have a phone for any emergencies.

For entertainment there are DVDs with a TV/monitor, board games and books. And for the active the cabin has bikes for use free on loan. There are also tennis racquets and balls provided for use on the full size court on the grounds.

The local townships of Dungog, Paterson, Gresford and Vacy provide rewarding day trips. Source local produce and wares at the growers markets or enjoy local produce at one of the excellent hotel restaurants or cafes. The historic James theatre in Dungog offers a thoughtfully curated cinema and musical programme. We recommend allowing time for such visits on your arrival or departure as experience tells us that it's hard to leave the tranquil wilderness once you've arrived and settled in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing Holiday The cottages are a great place to get away from the busy modern world and relax. Our cottage had all the amenities that we needed. We enjoyed our stay and would certainly come back again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful experience We all loved our time up in this property. We were a group of adults and children and there was something for everyone. The kids swam in the amazing river, played tennis and joined in bush walks. Such a beautiful part of the world. Very relaxing. A real break. The cabin was great. Sitting out on the daybed with a morning cuppa with the visiting birds was a lovely way to stay the day!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Off the beaten track! Great location, good facilities, plenty of wildlife and walking tracks. Generous check out time. Showers cold and we did run out of gas on the last morning but still a good getaway not too far from Sydney. Dungog close by with all amenities as well. Overall a pleasant stay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic short stop over What a great spot! On our journey up the coast we needed a quick stop and found this hideaway available. It was pleasing to find a cabin with all the necessities right in the wilds of Barrington Tops. We particularly loved waking to bird noises and visits by the local friendly wallabies. Communication was good and necessary too as we hadn't been to that part of the world before. As suggested we grabbed some necessities for the stay at Dungog, a gorgeous little town along the way. We will definitely be staying again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from In touch with nature We enjoyed the beautiful birds and animals each morning, was just a shame they were doing back burning when we stayed here. We also had several water issues due to one of the pumps not working but otherwise a pleasant stay here!
