Intention is so much more than a watchword at Collombatti Cottage in NSW’s Macleay Valley Coast. In fact, it laid the foundation of this modular and renewable-powered farm stay, inviting purposeful disconnection from the clutches of always on. Tucked at the end of a country lane, on a peaceful 100-acre slice of Dunghutti country, the modular cottage is the epitome of a nature immersion. Greet misty mornings and a (very cute) inquisitive herd of miniature Belted Galloways from the large wooden deck, cuppa in hand. Flanked by state forest bush walks, you’ll want your boots ready for a ramble, before watching the sky blush pastel at sunset. With linen-swathed beds in each of the two wings, a cook’s kitchen and wood-fired combustion oven, Collombatti Cottage is a perfect escape for up to two couples. Enjoy little touches like handmade personal care products, the well-stocked pantry and views of verdant bush from the comfy lounge. Partake in some water therapy and cast a line in one of the property’s dams – with your only competition the jabiru. Only 15 minutes from regional hub Kempsey, you’re also on the doorstep of some of NSW’s most coveted beach destinations (South West Rocks, 35 minutes north; Crescent Head, 40 minutes south) for country-to-coast vibes in less than an hour.
