“We were looking for a place in the lush northern New South Wales hinterland to drop off the grid for a couple of weeks after a very busy and stressful year. We wanted access to beautiful beaches but not to stay in the midst of crowds, or near anyone else at all really. Newrybar House, just minutes from the beach but offering privacy and seclusion, fit the bill perfectly for us. What a find! Being `aesthetic’ people, we were searching for contemporary accommodation, but with an earthy feel. The Owen and Vokes renovation at Newrybar House ticked this box, updating the original timber homestead with funky, modern lines. We were already fans of their work.

We normally opt for quite busy holidays such as skiing, or travelling abroad at Christmas, so we were a bit worried about simply `stopping’ for two full weeks. But the moment we arrived at Newrybar House, any remnant tension slipped away, and stayed away. We eased straight into sublime relaxation. We slept 12 hour nights on average, read several books each, provisioned at the local roadside produce stalls and small supermarkets and mostly cooked and ate in. We went to five different beaches, drove in the mountains, and simply paused and enjoyed the breathtaking scenery from the homestead’s elevated position, overlooking bushland and paddocks to Lennox Head and the ocean beyond. We normally only visit holiday places once, but both of us agree that Newrybar House is sure to lure us back some time soon.”
