Welcome to our cob home! For those who are new to the concept; cob houses are made of clay-like lumps of soil, sand, and straw. We are eco friendly and off grid making it the perfect getaway from the big city. Located on a private property surrounded by beautiful, natural state forest. Our cob house includes: 2 bedroom (1 queen + 2 singles) Outdoor shower (tank water) with gas hot water Fully equipped camping kitchen for cooking Outdoor fire pit Composting toilet system Kitchen: The kitchen has a gas cooker with pots and pans as well as cooking utensils, some cooking essentials (oil, salt & pepper etc) and a full size fridge. There is no oven or microwave, this is off grid living. Bathroom: Located outside which runs hot water. Our water is filtered from our dam and gas heated. Toilet: There is a composting toilet system. Super easy to use, firstly, there is no flush button; after using the toilet please sprinkle some wood shaving in the bowl, this covers your business, immediately neutralizes any smells and prompts the natural decomposition process. Phones/Wi-fi: You may or may not have reception depending on which provider you are with but again… this is off grid living, just enjoy the space! We thank you again for supporting our small business. Love & Respect Mel & Tom

The Cobb house was great - we were looking for something that was camping but not camping. The Cobb house did not disappoint, we loved staying there. It was magical for the kids - they felt like "ground fairies"! The sunset peacock visit and outdoor shower were highlights.

We loved staying in such a unique and comfortable home. The surroundings were beautiful, private and so peaceful. We loved the use of recycled materials and can appreciate the amount of work that went into creating such a magnificent building.

Just stunning!
Absolutely stunning and cosy property. We had the best time and can’t wait to return! The house is so beautifully designed and all the arty books and objects kept us entertained. Was lovely to switch off from the outside world for a little while.

Slow down, relax and enjoy
A lovely small off-grid house in which to relax. Loved the frog chorus at night in the rain, and the peacocks visiting at breakfast. We stayed for just one night at a stop-over to break a long drive, but a second night would have let everyone chill, relax and disconnect a little. Lovely spot with helpful hosts who provided good instructions & facilities.

Off grid sanctuary
I don't often leave reviews but i want to thank Mel and Tom for their hospitality and kindness. The house itself was very charming and the location was quite and picturesque. While the main house was a 100 metres away I felt like I was on my own property. Plenty of wildlife around, a comfy bed and great views. Breakfast using the fresh eggs provided was amazing. I wish I had been able to stay for longer than a night, it would make a great getaway.
