Located on a 20-acre bushland property in the Wollombi Valley, Somewhere Unique combines a tranquil setting with luxurious, romantic couples-only accommodation, superb comfort and attention to detail. The retreats are situated in Hunter Valley Wine Country, around 2 hours drive from the Sydney CBD, and just over two kilometres from the historic Wollombi village.

With an emphasis on privacy, Somewhere Unique is a wonderful setting for a couples-only romantic getaway, a honeymoon to remember, a relaxing holiday, weekend break or for those who wish to escape lifes hectic pace and relax in beautiful accommodation.

Somewhere Unique offers a choice of two unique one-bedroom fully self-contained retreats, "Lowanna" and "Allawah", each with their own individual personality ... enjoy the two-person bath, king-sized bed, privacy and views from every room. The retreats have been rated 4.5 STAR by AAA Tourism, and are also Eco-Certified by Ecotourism Australia.


The architect-designed retreats are furnished in a contemporary style, and constructed from Colorbond steel and timber to complement the natural surroundings. Both retreats have been placed to take best advantage of the bushland setting, and provide privacy for a truly luxurious and romantic getaway.



Somewhere Unique is a place of peace and tranquillity. Sleep is an important part of this, and the best quality bedding is important in achieving a good nightsleep, to ensure that your time in bed will be romantic, restful and refreshing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best romantic holiday destination my wife and I have found to date. Highly recommend Somewhere Unique. Comfort, privacy, attention to detail and spotless inside and out. Quite honestly I cannot find one thing to fault, and we have already agreed to go back for our next break.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect retreat for a couple. Everything has been thought to make this place a pure lover nest. I took my partner there for a surprise week end and actually we were both very positively surprised. So romantic and isolated. The bikes at disposal are a great plus. We went for a run in the morning around the place and spotted heaps a kangaroos. If you love nature and serenity, that's the place to go to. The romantic package is a great outcome as well. The biologic food was delicious. Last but not least, Melanie's assistance with everything was also much appreciated. She is really doing everything she can so that you'll have the perfect week end. Thanks again Melanie!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Somewhere Unique is a terrific place to stay. What sets this place apart from others is its attention to detail, location, cottage layout and the added touches. We could not fault this place in anyway . It is truly Somewhere Unique

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent set up in quiet and scenic aurrounds, with all requirements catered for. The cottage is well-designed with all modern aspects, and nothing has been left out - including the fabulous food provided for our stay. The large bath and panoramic view was certainly a highlight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect location for a secluded, private & romantic get-away. Gorgeous surroundings, both inside and out. The 'retreat' we stayed in, was beautifully appointed, with a lot of thoughtful extras that you wouldn't normally expect. Enough yummy local produce was provided for at least 2 breakfast's. Can't wait to visit again!
