Rare and unique, Cranky Rock cottage gets the name from a 25 tonne cave sandstone rock which graces our cottage with an open fireplace. Peaceful and private Cranky Rock oozes warmth and charm.

Built pioneer style with rustic Australian hardwoods, a quaint and romantic getaway in your couples only retreat.

Set at the base of the mountains overlooking a beautiful valley floor, watch our horses, cattle and local wallabies graze peacefully enjoying this rare jewel.

Conveniently located from Sydney, Newcastle, Central Coast, all the lower Hunter wineries and an easy 5 min drive to Wollombi. Handy for the music lovers for Pokolbin concerts, or just take in the historical Wollombi sandstone village, Home of the famous Dr Jurds Jungle Juice.

Awaken to the natural bush sounds of lyre birds around our 120 acres of natural bush and rainforest paradise, explore the wonderment of nature in your city escape, breath the fresh eucalyptus air. Experience the odd visit from our friendly King Parrots and native birdlife.

The living areas open out with bifold doors onto an open expansive timber sun drenched deck with outdoor BBQ shaded by eucalyptus trees over your large entertaining table and chairs.

Relax and revive after an enjoyable day, in the hot tub, while not just soaking in the warmth, but also the stars.

Ideal for 2 couples, a King size bedroom with fluffy donnas and comfy bed awaits your evening end with its own ensuite and along with a Queen size 4 poster cedar bed with own bathroom.

The country kitchen is fully equipped with gas cooktop, electric oven, microwave, fridge, basic condiments, tea, sugar, coffee are provided and our beautiful fresh free range eggs compliments from our farm hens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Lindsay and Pam's home was absolutely incredible. From the wonderful views from the deck, huge fire that kept us warm at night and the spa was perfect for relaxing in the evening. Couldn't recommend more highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rustic country charm This cottage is set in the countryside giving you a feel of privacy and country life. Great for a weekend stay as a couple escaping the city. We loved the log fire which was ready to light for us when we got there and the hot tub under the stars. The chickens woke us up early for breakfast which we made with Pam's eggs from her chooks! Highly recommend if you want somewhere that has charm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Cottage and Hosts were amazing! The cottage is a work of art in such a beautiful location. We had the best time and the hosts were so accomodating and went to so much effort to ensure everything was perfect right down to the smallest details! Lindsay was an inspiration, we loved hearing his story and his "out of the box" outlook on life! We hope to be back soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique piece of Paradise. Spa under the Stars. Exceeded our expectations. The cottage is private, spacious, has comfy beds and includes an enormous outdoor deck to bbq or bathe in the morning sunlight overlooking a gorgeous pristine landscape while you enjoy amazing freshly laid eggs. Perfect for overseas visitors or just a quick relaxing break out of Sydney or further afield. Totally worth a side trip if heading anywhere near the Hunter. It was chilly enough for us to light the gorgeous fire in the rock and sink into the sofas for a long chat over a local wine. We couldn't wait to jump in the spa under the grapevine, it's a star gazers heaven. Our hosts were so kind and welcoming and a wealth of knowledge about the area, plus their dog is adorable! In short, book here, it really is fantastic!
