Hunter Valley Accommodation with Pool to Plunge in

With its birdsong soundtrack, interiors drenched in natural light, and sky-high ceilings… Tathra House and its separate Humpy are the Hunter Valley accommodation duo you’ve dreamed about. Perfect for group catchups, team building getaways, birthday celebrations and reunions. 

Unlock Tathra’s door to discover your pristine open-plan kitchen, meander upstairs to the sleeping quarters or sneak away to one of two modern bathrooms (each fitted with waterfall showers FYI). You’ll feel worlds away from the grind, though right at home with familiar comforts. Like Netflix, plush linen and a stoked fireplace or fire pit with chopped firewood. 

Do wilderness life your way. Whether that’s cosied up across two storeys, or exploring kilometres of walking trails at dawn. Secret waterfalls trickle right through the 250-hectare property – and let’s not forget the fishing jetty and mountain biking tracks. 

Soak into pure seclusion with your own private plunge pool overlooking a chorus of towering greenery. Come night, snuggle up on your generously sized plush lounge or breathe *in* and *out* fresh forest air on the deck.

Planning to digi detox? Here’re directions to save. 

Once you’ve arrived at Carawirry (our entry sign should give that away), continue down the road and turn in at the third driveway. It’s on the left. But we’ll send you more information about your exact cabin after you’ve booked. And we’re only a phone call away!

Where we’re near

  • 90km drive from Singleton
  • 95km drive from Newcastle
  • 75km drive from Bulahdelah
  • 80km drive from Maitland


Here’s a look at the extras you can book at checkout. 

Grazing boxes

Consider yourself a bit of a foodie? Dreaming of a picnic on the jetty? Just want an arvo off from cooking? You’re in luck. Taste the region’s local flavours with artisan grazing boxes delivered to your cabin. Nibble on a curated collection of organic produce from the Dungog region. Think cheeses, fruit, cured meats and fresh dips. Simply select at checkout, or browse them here. 

Massages & treatments

Melt into ultimate serenity surrounded by a chorus of wildlife. Whether it’s a back, neck and shoulder massage, full body indulgence or rejuvenating facial, we’ll send one of our talented beauty therapists your way. Choose your treatment at checkout. Just leave us a note and we’ll make it happen. 


Recharge your batteries with a restorative yoga practice alfresco. Surrounded by nature’s hum. And lush greenery as far as the eye can see. Fyona from Yoga Brave is available at your cabin by appointment. With a class tailored to suit your group’s physical and emotional needs, add a calming yoga session to your stay at checkout and stretch your worries away. 

Brekkie hamper

Breakfast freshly cooked on the fire… You just can’t beat it. Really impress the guests with your master chef skills, flipping and sizzling the goods inside this mouthwatering camp pack hamper. Slow smoked bacon, farm fresh eggs, organic halloumi, Farm Bakery sourdough, vine-ripened tomatoes, gourmet sausages… We could go on. Or you could just add a brekkie camp pack to your stay at checkout. We’ll even throw in a 10-pack of Urban Brew Coffee Pods to sip as you eat (we have the coffee machine sorted too). 

S’mores desert box

Moreish after-dark dessert anyone? We thought so. Build your own Carawirry S’mores the way they should be. Oozing with gooey marshmallow fluff, dripping in milk chocolate, between two bikkies. Make sure they’re in the snack stash when you book your stay. 

Locally-made, wholesome meals

Truly escape from the everyday grind with meals made for you by our local clean foods chef. Heat and serve. Fresh, tasty, convenient. You little ripper. Add meals with your booking.


 Whatever it might be, leave a note at checkout and we’ll put the word out. 


It sure is! We’ve got three kids 9 years and under who see Carawirry as their personal wonderland. (But don’t worry, we don’t let them run wild while we have guests staying). We just ask that you keep a good eye on your little adventurers while they’re on the property.

Check in from 3 pm on your arrival date. And check out at 11am on your final day (because, sleep-ins). But, if we don’t have a same day changeover, we’re happy to extend your checkout time to 1pm. Just ask us when you arrive and we’ll let you know.

Nope. Both cabins are separate (and super private) on Carawirry’s huge 250 acre property.

Yes. If digi-detoxes aren’t your style, you can opt to connect to Carawirry’s secure network. Simply add unlimited Wi-Fi to your booking for a one-time fee of $11.99. This gives anyone at the cabin access to the internet. 

Want to disconnect from socials, messages, calls and your inbox but still want to watch your favourite shows? Easy. Each cabin’s Smart TV is permanently connected to Carawirry’s Wi-Fi and logged into our Netflix and Stan accounts. 

Heads up: if you don’t add Wi-Fi when you book, you won’t have access on any device other than the Smart TV’s Netflix and Stan accounts  #hardcoredigidetox

Since Carawirry’s forest is brimming with wildlife, we don’t allow any pets. Think of it this way: Fido gets a holiday from you too! Just kidding, Fido loves you… But we can assure you, you’ll definitely get your furry friend fix from resident wallaby Skip.
