Imagine a place where the stress of city life fades away the moment you drive through the gate. A place where you swap your alarm clock for the morning calls of native birds. You swap your morning commute for nature walks. Where the only sky-scrapers you'll see are the beautiful Watagan Mountains. And, the only traffic you are likely to come across is our resident wombat, Billy. Our tranquil country cottage in Hunter Valley,1hr 45 minutes from Sydney, in the village of Congewai, one of the area's most beautiful valleys, is built high on a hill to show stunning views over the Tuscan style olive groves of a working farm.

The self contained cottage has two large bedrooms opening up to a wrap-around veranda and offers a four-post king-size bed in one bedroom and a double bed with extra day bed in the other, both rooms with en-suite bathroom and fireplace. There are hammocks for the lazy afternoon nap...but for those seeking a little more adventure, we're located only a short drive away from a variety of activities, vineyards and outstanding restaurants. The Great North Walk crosses our land and bird lovers will never want to leave. 96 spices have been sighted on our land!

Experience a truly guilt-free getaway on an eco friendly self sustained farm, as every service is generated from the land. Sunshine makes all our power, drinking water from rainwater tanks and when it's cold sit in the warm glow of a fireplace burning wood from fallen trees off the land. Our cottage is built from natural materials that have excellent insulation properties. This means the need for cooling and heating at any time of the year is very minimal. But, you can still keep one foot in with the modern world beacuse your holiday will be anything but primitive with broadband internet, Foxtel, TV, DVD player and iPod docking station in each room .

For a truly stress-free escape start your day with a country style breakfast from a hamper waiting in your room on arrival. With a fridge in each room, a well equipped outdoor kitchen with a BBQ on a veranda overlooking mature olive trees, self-catering is a breeze. Some of our guests have after the friendly chat with Glen and Fiddich our Scottish Highland Cattle, or the slow stroll around the olive groves looking for Billy Wombat, or spottting our just discovered Platypus, ends up using the fishing rods on the jetty to catch fresh-water Silver Perch for a truly unique dinner experience. And....the perfect end, to the perfect day, is to be totally mesmerized by millions and millions of twinkling stars on a velvety night sky....

So if it's breathtaking views, a genuine Eco friendly experience, closeness to nature and the ultimate in relaxation you are looking for... you have found it at Lonely Goat Olive Farm country cottage in Congewai. But don't just take our word for it. Take a look at our guest reviews! You can also find the Lonely Goat Olive Farm on facebook.

No, we do not have sir conditioning. Our eco friendly cottage is made from materials that provides outstanding insulation. The rooms are oh so cool in the summer and hold the heat so you stay toasty in the winter!

Yes. Our kitchen is very unique! And whilst it is "outdoors" it is protected from the weather. There are walls on two sides and a roof. Cooking is done on a state of the art 4 burner gas BBQ (with hood and wok trivet) and our pantry offers all the usual utensils and condiments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely little house, excellent for family with kid The house has board games and even a colouring book for kids. We had lots of fun - looking at the chicken, goats and bulls... The couple who own the house was super nice. They even provided a basket of fresh bread, eggs, tomatoes and bacon for breakfast! Would go back again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful location We really enjoyed our visit to the Lonely Goat Olive Farm. The hosts were lovely, the cottage was gorgeous and the views were gorgeous. There was plenty of firewood and loads of room in the two bedrooms. As our children are young, we wound up all sleeping in one room, which was large and comfortable for all of us. It was a beautiful place and we'd definitely go back again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All around lovely Beautiful countryside. Kind and accommodating hosts. Cosy rooms. Roomy beds. Roasty fireplaces and bonfires. Pickable herbs and pattable livestock. Doors and handles with a nice wooden weight to them. Perfect for a winter retreat with friends or family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection in the hills I spent 8 wonderful nights at lonely goat and loved every moment of it. The views are amazing, the cottage is lovely, the four poster bed is so comfortable. I spent most of my time sitting on the verandah either on the hammock or a chair just looking out over the hills watching the resident wedge tail eagle and hairy coos. This is the perfect get away from it all that will refresh your soul and reset your heart. There are so many small touches that make this place, the adult colouring books, the slippers and extra warm jackets, a lovely breakfast basket, mozzie repellent, a very well stocked kitchen just to name a few. The hosts very clearly have put their hearts and soul into making lonely goat a welcoming home away from home
