Great location
92% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Just 4 min from Dungog, silence is amazing, birdlife mornings, crickets and frogs at night, with splendid sunsets across Williams River Valley. Shedhouse has 40 acres, in the cattle country of the Hunter Valley. The air-conditioned Shedhouse and main house(Blackwattle Ridge) share a driveway and garden, a 1.5 acre safe dingo-proof home-paddock for kids and pets. If we are home, we are in the main house. If not, there may be guests in the main house as well.

The space
The cosy apartment, with pot bellied stove and unlimited wood, is part of a larger shed complex, where we lived while building our house, also built with 'Shed' methodology, designed by my husband Ted, who is a passionate architect. It's a very simply designed cottage with a full kitchen. We do hope it will give you TIME. Time either to read a book or explore this lovely area, which, as escaped Sydneysiders, we chose as the most beautiful countryside anywhere within 3 hours of Sydney. The bedrooms have vertical blinds for sleeping-in if you wish and in winter the pot-bellied stove is a winner.

Where you’ll be

Alison, New South Wales, Australia

Dungog is a quirky, heritage-listed country town with a fast-growing artistic community who have all chosen it for its incredible beauty and heritage. There's always something to do - swimming in the local rivers or the Dungog Swimming Pool, or hiking into the Gondwana rainforests of the vast Barrington Tops, just a short drive away. There are seven coffee shops in town, a pub and the open air Tin Shed Brewery, more and more famous for its unique craft beer, made on the spot. Stella's Restaurant is great dining on Friday and Saturday evenings and there's an Italian restaurant with excellent pizzas. We can send you in the right direction, just say what you like...

I have had careers in television, tourism, aviation and journalism and have published two books. My husband Ted and I are keen sailors and between 2003 and 2008 sailed around the world in our Peterson 46 called Blackwattle. We are often away in our Sprinter these days, travelling with our jack russell, Charlie.
