“The cottage exceeded all expectations!! We knew we were in for a treat but even still, Allawah still blew us away. Murray and David have thought of everything to make the stay as luxurious and perfect as possible. Our Romance Package was a perfect Midweek Getaway for us and made it super special. The bathtub was perfect for relaxing after a busy day horse riding and wine tasting, and the BBQ hamper made dinner very easy and delicious. Even the thunderstorms didn’t deter us!! 10/10 would recommend to all our friends and will definitely be coming back!!”

“WOW, what an amazing setup you have here. We have been looking at booking a getaway at ‘Somewhere Unique’ for over 18 months. We are so glad that we finally did, because it made our 10 year wedding anniversary PERFECT! The Wine & Dine Package exceeded all our expectations. You have literally thought of everything. We will definitely be back!”

“Indeed ‘Somewhere Unique’ is with no doubt unique and thus we rate it 10/10. Excellent setting and well executed facilities that make the place extra relaxing and enjoyable. This was our first ever time to Wollombi to celebrate my husband’s birthday at a quiet environment. To be honest it was the best ever decision I’ve made because he enjoyed his birthday as it was celebrated in a unique way at ‘Somewhere Unique’. Thank you very much for all you did put together to compliment our stay. The food was marvelous. Well done David and Murray. Definitely we will be back in the near future and recommend our friends.”

P & P, Northmead

“Somewhere Unique is exactly that!! What an amazing experience. This was our first time here and we can’t wait to come back. Everything was at our fingertips, all the inclusions were beautiful. Breakfast and dinner, the food was amazing, the bath and all amenities provided. It’s so peaceful here, so relaxing. What a way to spend our 15 year anniversary. It’s so quiet, relaxing on the deck, candles everywhere, no need for TV or music, we enjoyed listening to watch what nature had to offer. The bikes were great too! Thank you! You have thought of everything. We absolutely loved our time here.”
