The Ruin features a 1 acre block of land including the hosts’ private dwelling, that is a converted stone barn, situated in the Hunter Valley. The perfect powered campsite is available in the house paddock, but far enough away from the home not to bother campers. You camp facing East, affording you added privacy and availability to stunning 360o views from sunrise to sunset! The tranquility is breathtaking! A firepit and firewood is included to make your stay cosy. There are 2 x sites available, but that is only if you are camping with friends you wish to join you, otherwise you are the only campers! Dungog is a short drive away and a bit further on is the adorable township of Morpeth. Barrington Tops is very popular, as is a trip into Stroud or even Singleton or East Maitland. If you are after a quiet getaway with sensational 360o views, this is the destination for you. The rolling hills of the surrounding area dotted with cattle, offers you a serenity people only dream about. Kangaroos frequently pass by and there are also 2 horses that freely roam the property. Sunrises and sunsets are totally amazing and will add something very special to your stay. If you wish to bring your pet, please contact us for consideration. This would be determined due to stock in paddocks, kangaroos etc. If you wish to order the Breakfast food option, please advise upon booking. Just sit back and enjoy the serenity of the views and catch your breath, or take a day trip to visit some of the local attractions. Whatever takes your fancy, we just know you will be delighted with your enviable vistas of the area.

Above and beyond <3
David and Lynette have such a beautiful property and made us feel comfortable as soon as we arrived. Very hospitable but also let us have our privacy. We were their first proposal and once they found out, they really went above and beyond! Can’t wait to go back!!! Such happy memories.

Lynette and David were absolutely amazing hosts!! Their directions to get to the Ruin were super clear and they had really kindly set up a fire pit for us as well as a greeting food platter with their own home crafted wooden board. The chemical toilet they offered was also super convenient and it offered amazing views on the valley or stars depending on the of the day. The overall location was breathtaking, surrounded by nature, cows and kangaroos. This was an amazing experience!!

Easy to find, great views, pet friendly and lovely hosts. This was such a beautiful spot. Perfect for our first family camping trip. David and Lynette were very welcoming. Our youngest spent almost our entire stay playing with the cute little kitchen and wagon which they brought over for her to use at the same time they dropped off a platter for us to snack on as we finished setting up our camp-site. The kids also got to experience hand feeding a couple of horses one afternoon. The scenery, especially early morning and late afternoon is spectacular and it was fun trying to spot the kangaroos on the hills. The morning we left they let us know that as there was not another booking that day we could take our time packing up which was a relief because as I mentioned before, being our first camping trip we had a bit to figure out in getting everything packed up again. Lynette even brought out some freshly backed scones with jam and cream which were delicious and such a kind gesture. We had a lovely stay and would love to go back and spend a bit longer next time.

Exceeded our Expectations!
A beautiful and scenic location - perfect for a relaxing weekend away. We enjoyed camp fires both nights we stayed here! Only a short drive to Dungog for supplies and the Mountain biking Park! David and Lynette are wonderful and considerate hosts! Will definitely return!

The views are breathtaking, and the hospitality and kindness shown by Lynette & David was well above and beyond our expectations. We were on our first Motorhome trip and our first 'off grid' location, after only a few days into our trip, so not everything was going to plan, but Lynette & David went out of their way to help us settle in. David met us at the gate (as a result of our own poor navigating, we missed the entrance), and Lynette welcomed us with a complimentary cup of tea & a plate my sweet treats, before leaving us to settle in. This place is truly stunning; a perfect combination of views, cattle grazing freely over the countryside, the friendly horses and a few kangaroos. We highly recommend this beautiful country location. Thank you, Lynette & David, for making our stay so enjoyable. Cheers, Cassandra

AMAZING & TRANQUIL! Just perfect!
Easy to locate by the beautiful timber sign on Bingleburra Road. As soon as you open the farm gate you are immediately transported into the tranquil surrounds. As you cruise up the dirt road (all easily accessible with our 21ft caravan), past the family of cows we were greeted by David & Lynette, who were so friendly and welcoming, made sure we had everything we needed but also left us to our own devices to enjoy the amazing landscape. David was also kind enough to give us some free firewood. Absolutely breathtaking to wake up with the sunrising over the hills and made super special by the arrival of the 2 horses. We explored The Barrington Tops for a hike, and afternoon the micro brewery in Dungog, a beautiful lunch in Morpeth and just enjoying the quiet afternoons and cruising around the farm. The site is near the house but it feels very private and a million miles away as you look out over the beautiful view. We even purchased a beautiful timber cutting board made right there on the property! The property is just amazing, the perfect trip!
