This was our second visit to Somewhere Unique to celebrate our Anniversary. We have found it the perfect place to escape to as we feel relaxed as soon as we arrive. The Lowanna retreat is secluded and a haven for bird life. Of the 2 retreats, I feel this one has the better aspect and is nicely tucked away. Waking with a mist over the valley and the sounds of blue wrens and butcher birds was bliss. We were also visited by a wallaby and her joey. The bench seat on the top of the escarpment is a beautiful place to sit, ponder and tuck in to the fantastic cheese plate. It was a perfect spot to sit in the evening to watch the day drift away.
We had chosen the wine and dine package which left us very much self contained for the weekend. This included a breakfast hamper, ample Barbecue package and a 3 course lunch at award winning Margan Restaurant in Broke. We were able to buy the supplies needed at the general store in Wollombi to cover us for Saturday dinner.
Although we have never met, we felt like friends and not guests from the first communications with Melanie to the welcome message left on the notice board.. I cant speak highly enough of Somewhere Unique and know we will definitely be back
