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.

Our Cob Home is situated on expansive, uninterrupted land surrounded by natural forest on the mid north coast and includes:- 2 bedrooms (1 queen + 2 singles)- An outside shower and bath (tank water)- Well equipped off-grid kitchen- A lovely outdoor fireplace with wood provided- Multiple dams and forest walks to explore- Composting toilet system which is super easy to use.

Our property is 2WD accessible and you’re welcome to park in the designated car spots. No need for any off-road driving.

Cooking: Please bring your own food. There is a gas cooker with pots and pans as well as cooking utensils, some cooking essentials (oil, salt and pepper etc) and a full size fridge. There is no oven or microwave, this is off grid living. The tap water is all drinkable and you will find cold lemon water in the fridge when you arrive.

Bathroom: Located outside which runs hot water (but not always guaranteed). Our water is filtered from our dam and solar heated. The best time to ensure a hot shower is late in the afternoon after the water has heated through the day.

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!

It has been getting a little cool in the evenings and mornings so we suggest having some warm clothes but the days have been nice and warm. 

Enjoy toasty toes at our firepit with plenty of firewood to help keep you warm in the evenings. 

You can walk anywhere on the property as you wish. Feel free to swim in the dams if you like as well.

There is a little note book on the dining table. Please write something a little about you or just something you wish to give to this space in your words. You don’t have to leave a name if you do not wish too but a date would be appreciated as we are excited to see this book grow in time.

Well behaved pets are welcome.

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.
