Built into the hillside on a beautifully landscaped corner of the farm, this unique hobbit-style house has been a family secret for 15 years. The ambience of candle-light, the warmth of a coal range fire and hand crafted native timbers, offer guests a rustic, cosy and tranquil escape from the modern world.

The off-the-grid house is cleverly constructed to resemble a cave. With no electricity in the house, the stone, wood and rustic features truly make you feel like you’re stepping back in time.

The decision not to run power to the cave house was made to help fortify its role as a true place of escape. Having no power encourages people to leave their phones and computers behind and enjoy relaxing in the wonderful natural environment.
