Only a 3 hour drive from Sydney, overlooking the magnificent Manning Valley is Manning Valley Hideaway at Artisans On The Hill.

There are 5 bedrooms 4 x Queen rooms and 1 x King room plus 3 roll away single beds if required and 4 bathrooms plus a large fully equipped kitchen and living area, all reverse cycle air-conditioned of course. No need to worry about carrying linen as your beds are all made up with fresh linen, environmentally friendly toiletries and large fluffy towels. There is a hamper of breakfast goodies to get you started and of course real coffee and tea supplies are always on hand

The large screen television and sound bar allows you to enjoy the vast library of movies, or perhaps you just want to curl up with a good book from the huge eclectic collection.

Free WiFi is there for those who need to remain connected while staying.

The large, sealed parking area is ideal for boats, coaches and other awkward vehicles. There is even some under cover parking available by arrangement.

Ideal for Families, Groups, corporates or just a quiet getaway, this self-contained home away from home is perfect as a base for family gatherings, sporting groups, team building or creative pursuits in Artisans Workshop. Your hosts, Peter and Christine live in a different wing on-site and are happy to sit with you over coffee to let you in on the hidden secrets of the Manning Valley.

Manning Valley Hideaway at Artisans On The Hill is also Pet Friendly. Well behaved pets are welcome inside but not on our linen. Warm timber flooring throughout means no carpets to gather pet hair Please bring your pet's own bedding for their stay.

Artisans On The Hill is strictly a No Smoking property including the grounds and we do ask that you respect our wishes in that regard.

Located only a stone's throw from the village of Tinonee, and larger centres of Wingham and Taree, you get the benefits of a quiet rural location with easy access to all "The Valley" made famous by local best selling author, Di Morrissey has to offer.

The famous "Tip Track" - Mountain Bike Trail through Kiwarrak Forest is 5km away and the Beaches at Old Bar, Wallabi Point and Saltwater are about 20 minutes from your door.

For more information on the area, suggest you web search Visit Manning Valley.

Should you like to experience something different during your stay, spend some time in the Artisan Gallery on site, with functional pieces from some of Australia's best Artisans. Better still, try a workshop with your hosts, Peter & Christine, who can teach you things like woodturning, silver jewellery making, kiln formed glass and lots more. Lots of fun things for kids to make too

Artisans Retreat / Artisans On The Hill has operated as a traditional B&B for several years, but with the addition of more bedrooms and the kitchen/living area, has made the shift to self contained accommodation - just for you

Be daring - try something Completely Different

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Very clean and spacious for our needs with a new puppy. We were lucky no one else had booked at the same time as you only pay for the room. Having a new puppy whining at night might be a bit much for other couples.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Property and Beautiful Location! Spacious and clean property. The set up of the house allows the guest to the separate from the owners house. The property is close to the nature. The loved loved the farm and the night sky. The view of milky way from the hill was spectacular! The hosts are accommodating and were generous to supply ample breakfast provisions. They also have a great collection of books and DVDs. Peter was kind enough to recommend few scenic places around the area. We enjoyed our stay at the Artisans and would definitely visit again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spacious rural retreat - highly recommended We booked at short notice (as we were attending a funeral) and Peter could not have been more helpful. The house was fantastic, especially as we were 3 separate family groups - ensuites for each of the bedrooms, a huge kitchen for lots of helpers, and a lovely big common area, including an outside table setting overlooking a lovely rural setting. We were only at Manning Valley overnight, but wish we could have stayed longer to relax. An unexpected bonus was witnessing the night sky unaffected by light, the milky way, planets, and even a distant galaxy just above us. Unforgettable. WE also loved the artists gift shop on the property, full of high quality gifts, and I purchased a surprise gift for my husband for his birthday which he loved. Peter very generously supplied ample breakfast provisions, and it was a real treat to be able to cook a leisurely breakfast on the BBQ. WE will definitely stay again if we have the opportunity to visit the area again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great house, great view, great owner! Me and the boys are very thankful for Peter and Christine's hospitality. If we needed any help they were willing. Though, the set up of the house allows to be practically seperate from the owners house split. Comfy beds, great layout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful holiday We had a lovely stay @ Artisans On The Hill - 5 nights with our 2 grandchildren - who loved their separate rooms. The accommodation was first class - very spacious and comfortable, everything you could wish for. Peter and Christine are very thoughtful hosts and couldn't have been more accommodating. Such a unique experience - with the extensive artist workshop available for sessions with either of them, a Gallery with very high quality pieces and stunning views from on top of the hill. The children loved the candle-making with Peter and we're tempted to return to spend some more time in the workshop. A special 'extra' was witnessing a koala being gently rescued as we arrived. We would certainly recommend 'Artisans' to anyone for that special break.
