Central Coast / Capertee: Reconnect with Slow Stays

If COVID-19 has taught us nothing else it’s that the chance to get away from it all should be savoured, not hurried. That’s exactly what the Slow Stays directory, compiled by lifestyle brand Life Unhurried is all about – providing the official edit of the best slow and sustainable accommodation to help people reconnect with the quiet spaces in their minds and the loves in their lives.Taking a browse through the directory delivers up some truly amazing accommodation offerings, such as the gorgeous heritage inspired Grower’s Cottage in Lower Mangrove on the Central Coast. Squirrelled away below Dharug National Park, this cosy restored farmer’s cottage delivers a taste of farm life, from picking fresh ingredients in the veggie patch to create your own mouth-watering pizza (cooked in your outdoor pizza oven); to the fruit trees offering up the freshest breakfast treats, and bees working busily in on-site hives to make the honey you’ll find in the kitchen. With no phone reception, you can completely switch off and enjoy the indoor fireplace, run yourself a bath in the gorgeous outdoor stone bathtub, and bed down in eucalyptus fibre bed linen.

Then there’s the breathtaking vistas on offer halfway between Lithgow and Mudgee, where you’ll find an Australian-first glamping experience that you’ll never forget. Located on over 1000 acres, three perfectly sized transparent “bubble” tents overlooking the second widest canyon in the world – New South Wales’ Capertee Valley – provide a truly unique way to reconnect with nature while still offering all of the conveniences of a hotel room, including a bathroom, day bed, fridge, Bluetooth speakers, headlamps, USB charger, games, and a comfortable queen bed dressed with goose down pillows and blankets.
