Lonely Goat Olives Reviews

Was originally looking for a safe parking spot to leave at the end of a hiking trip, but now regretting not staying at the cottage. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by both Elizabeth and Keith who showed us around their lovely property. Well kept gardens and traditional wooden cottages set within the magnificent landscape of the Congewai Valley. Upon arriving back from hiking in the rain we were generously given warm showers and cups of tea. Would give 6/5 stars on hospitality alone.

A beautiful stay in a quiet corner of the Hunter Valley. Keith and Elizabeth made us feel so welcome. If you’re looking for an outdoorsy experience the al fresco cooking and dining is for you with its own pizza oven and well equipped barbecue kitchen.
Comfortable, spacious and luxurious bedrooms. A great escape from city life, perfect for two couples or a small family. I would highly recommend.

Such a relaxing place to be in. We had a great time away staying here for a few nights. Absolutely beautiful hosts and owners best people in the world. Love learning about the olive farms and the history of Kingly Goat Olives. Thanks again for having us. We will return soon.

Our family had a wonderful time here. Very welcoming hosts, blissfully quiet, magnificent views, lots of bird-life and wildlife to watch, comfortable beds and quirky wall-hangings. Do yourselves a favour: like us you will want to return.

Amazing place at Hunter Valley!!!!! You can pick your own fresh eggs from the barn! It's warm and delicious!! Great host too!!! We will definitely visit again!

Keith, Elisabeth and family are very welcoming. The lonely goat olives cottage is the perfect place for a relaxed getaway. Amazing views, alfresco dining and entertainment area. The bedrooms are large and very comfortable, an evening making pizza's & cooking them in the woodfired pizza oven is a must. Thank you for a fantastic weekend.

My wife and I just got married at Lonely Goat Olives and we could not imagine a more perfect place to do so. We were able to use it for a small intimate wedding and we celebrated the ordeal over a couple of days. It was the perfect place to do so, as there’s many options for other activities, such as the wood fire pizza oven, a large fire pit, and a bush walking track. It was also just so picturesque for the wedding ceremony and offered many various backdrops for photos afterwards. Keith and Elisabeth were lovely hosts, and super helpful. They have a genuine love and passion for their property and rightly so! As soon as you get there you feel a sense of peace and tranquility (which definitely settled both our wedding jitters!). We loved the fact that it is a truly unique property and isn’t just another venue trying to make $$$ from weddings. Instead it’s been carefully built upon with detail and the owners’ own unique style and love of the place, preserving a feeling of intimacy and seclusion. It allowed freedom to tailor make our wedding to our own style and needs. We are so happy we found Lonely Goat Olives and will definitely be back again to visit this special place!

Absolutely amazing location for an Australian Bush Wedding!!! Our whole family had a great time! The owners are really friendly and went out of their way to make sure our stay was an Awesome experience ! Thank you all so much! We will certainly be back again!! Best regards The King Family❤️❤️❤️

Was lucky enough to enjoy a romantic evening here with my wife. Pizza oven, massive bonfire pit, overlooking the rolling mountains with a glass of red wine as the sun went down...if that doesn't sound like perfection to you, well then I don't know what is! This place is ridiculously special, so do yourself a favour and get in before they realise it and jack the prices up to reflect what it is truly worth!

Secluded and quiet setting perched on the great north walk. Lovely cabin style accomodation with open kitchen and outdoor fire pit area.
An extremely relaxing place and only half an hour from the Hunter wineries.

Only spent 1 night but the memory will long last for forever. I have booked this place on the basis of its review & we found it all very accurate. We Shrestha family are the first nepalese family who stayed in this beautiful place according to Keith & Elishabeth. Thank you Keith for your wonderful tractor Ride & Elishabesth for letting us feed that beautiful cattles. I was afraid whether my parents would love this place or not before the arrival but they enjoyed the most & We will definitely come back again. We really appreciate all your time & the hard work you guys done to creat such a beauty from your own imaginations. Wish you guys a good luck. Regards, Bisswas & Family.

This is a hidden piece of paradise and I couldn't recommend it higher.

I love taking my family here to escape the city, relax and to see my toddler take on so many new sensory experiences. It is the perfect farm stay meets exclusive escape.

Beautiful, relaxing atmosphere! I watched my best friend get married here and it was absolutely magical. Highly recommended

Peacefully placid venue and lodge. Very functional.
The hillside greenery backdrop is absulutly phenomenal. Truly great.

This place is so relaxing & beautiful if you are looking to unwind this is the place; the owners are lovely as well.
