Pindari cottage has rock and timber walls and inside there are warm pine timber walls and ceilings. A queen sized bedroom for mum and dad and an extended living area with two single beds is perfect for two children. The kitchen is well appointed with gas appliances and outside an under cover gas BBQ. Quality stainless steel cook ware is on hand plus all necessary kitchen bits and pieces. Leaf tea, tea bags, sugar, pepper and salt is supplied. There is a coffee plunger...just pop in the style of coffee you enjoy. Solar lights from a most efficient system see guests having lights when the Runciman's home has power black outs!
Please note costing details refer to two persons for two night minimum. Check with owners for cost for more than two persons.
The Fun of Campfire...
An outside dedicated camp fire is the answer to enjoying sitting around after dark and enjoying yourselves under the stars. A gantry hangs the grill over the coals so a snag or two can be cooked there with the fat dripping directly on to the coals...healthy snags! There is a camp oven so for the adventurous camp cooks perhaps a stew (less chance of it burning on the bottom with that goodly dash of red wine in with the ingredients you use!) Dampers are often cooked...I might add , with mixed results. There is an art to cooking damper! Maybe google this before heading to Kalimna!
As with the inside fire we supply more than adequate fire wood at no additional charge along with kindling wood and fire lighters. We appreciate the wood is not wasted...by all means use what you need but follow the direction sheet for the inside combustion heater as closing down the controls slows down the burning process but also does not see the need to open all windows and doors when it gets too hot!
Topline Park Horse riding just four kms from here.
Yeranda is 17 kilometres from Dungog where there are a few nice eateries...cafe style, pubs and clubs. Gloucester is an hours drive away with nice places for a meal or snack. Forest drives are certainly worthwhile with Jerusalem Creek not more than 20 minutes away. For those who wish to explore a little further there is Blue Gum Loop or Rocky Crossing on the southern side of the Barrington Tops National Park. This NP is huge so any chance of seeing "it all" would not be possible even if you had unlimited time. Depending on your level of fitness and desires you may wish to tackle Carey's Peak at 154m asl...it is a very challenging climb but if the weather is favourable then the rewards are there. Amazing views towards Newcastle but you must always keep in mind that the conditions can rapidly change and heavy fog and cloud can move in with the very real chance of becoming lost. Always go prepared. Another wonderful place to visit is the Mountaineer which is spot on 55 minutes drive from Yeranda. At a much higher elevation the area supports wonderful stands on antarctic beech trees and towering tree ferns. The lyre birds run through their mimicry and you will feel as if you are a million miles from anywhere! The Dungog Common is very close to town ans perfect for open walks or mountain biking. The Runcimans' are happy to give guests directions and you may wish for a NP brochure to be mailed to you prior to your visit so you can plan the outings you may wish to do.
