Somewhere Unique was an exceptional place to spend our 20th Wedding Anniversary. The love and pride the hosts have in this retreat is obvious the minute you arrive. The little touches, the congratulatory gift, the impeccable condition of the retreat, the generosity of provisions, and the flavour of the bourguignon - wow! This time away exceeded all of our expectations. Such a peaceful location, away from everything, and so beautiful. If you have the privilege of staying here, be sure to read David's "not-so-short history" provided in the folder - a fantastic insight into Wollombi, the retreat and the hosts. Thank you so much for it all - a memory we will treasure for years to come, and hope to revisit again.

Took my husband here for his birthday, there was a personal welcome sign at the front door, we stepped inside and was greeted with relaxing music and a wonderful clean spacious retreat. The food we had ordered was endless and delicious and Murray & David had left a birthday cake as an added extra. Spacious bedroom with high class linen, huge bathroom with the biggest bath I had ever seen. Every detail had been covered this wikk not be the last time , in fact we are taking parents back next month. Would highly recommend if you like peace & tranquility, and amazing accommodation.

My wife and I enjoyed a truly delightful retreat at 'Somewhere Unique' early last Spring. The beautiful natural setting, excellent accommodation in 'Lowanna 'and the deliciously generous food and refreshments provided by Murray and David made for an idyllic four days. It was a triumph of generous hospitality in every way.

There simply aren’t enough superlatives to describe this place. Murray and David have thought of everything. The bath was like a swimming pool that overlooks a private bush setting. The thing that makes us want to come back though is the thoughtfulness, good taste, and commitment to sustainability that is evident in how the place is presented. Strongly recommend a visit for that special weekend away.
