Situated on a 20 acre equestrian property just 2kms from the centre of historic Wollombi village and a 2 hour drive from Sydney, Applegums is a stylish modern cottage built in traditional colonial style. It has a beautiful outlook, easy access, two bedrooms and a fully equipped kitchen.

We are pet-friendly and welcome dogs, cats and horses by arrangement. Before booking please take note of the Pet Owners Conditions at the foot of this page.

Breakfast supplies are included in our rates and our aim is to leave you in peace to enjoy this special location. However we are on hand should you need anything during your stay.

Relax on the deck and enjoy the views, walk on nearby bush trails, or keep cosy in front of the woodburner in winter with one of our local wines. Attend one of the many Hunter Valley events or go wine tasting at some of the most renowned wineries of the region.


The cottage has a spacious open-plan living area with comfortable leather sofas that you cannot resist snuggling into; the wood-burner provides a comfortable ambient temperature and a cosy atmosphere on a wintery day. The cottage is set up for both indoor & outdoor dining with settings for four, and has complimentary Foxtel TV including sport channels. There is also a music player with iPod dock, ceiling fan and reverse cycle air-conditioning.

WiFi access is available and Wollombi is serviced by both Telstra and Optus for mobile coverage.

The over-sized kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave, full size oven and ceramic hob, so whether you decide to stay in or eat out your needs are well catered for.

The lounge, dining area and both bedrooms lead out to a traditional wrap-around verandah which has beautiful views over paddocks, dams and rolling hills. There is an outdoor setting on the verandah so that you can soak in the views while you enjoy a cocktail or a hot chocolate. There is also a Weber BBQ.

One bedroom has a queen bed, the second bedroom has two single beds with double doonas.

The bathroom has a vanity, walk-in shower, toilet and washing machine.


Applegums is owned and managed by animal lovers and is home to several horses, two Shetland ponies Magic and Merlin, two cats and Crazy Daisy the Jack Russell Terrier. We welcome your dogs, cats and horses by prior arrangement.

For your dog:

We have a secure garden with fencing 1m high; dogs are allowed indoors and we provide an outside kennel.

There is no charge for one dog; $25 per weekend for a second dog.

For your cat: please note that there is no secure outdoor area for cats and we are surrounded by bushland and paddocks. We provide a litter tray.

For your horse: please contact us for information.

Activities and Events:

We offer massage in your cottage by a qualified remedial massage therapist.

Wollombi has a historic Tavern, cafes, wineries, walking and scenic drives, as well as markets and events.

We are 30 to 40 minutes drive from the renowned wineries and restaurants at Broke and Pokolbin; wine tours will pick you up at the front gate and transport can be arranged to the concerts at Hope Estate and Bimbadgen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peaceful Property There were 5 of us in a 2 bedroom property so obviously a little cramped but the property was lovely and warm with the wood fire going all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home away from home! We really loved our stay at Applegums. It was far better than we could have imagined! Our stay was for two nights and we brought our small dog along too. We felt very welcome from our lovely hosts Becky and Neil. As Wollombi is a very small town we were supplied with plenty of yummy breakfast provisions so we didn't need to leave at all. The property was spotlessly clean and the outlook from the deck was spectacular. The yard was very secure for our small dog and she enjoyed running around on the grass and watching the horses. This is the perfect spot to relax! Even though we visited in 30+ temperatures the house was cool and we were always comfortable. We look forward to returning when the weather is cooler so we can enjoy misty mornings and the log fire. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
