ADELAIDE HILLS

Release
allow or enable to escape from confinement; set free. let go, allow to leave, liberate, emancipate; unbind, unshackle.

Our first CABN is named Jude, after our founder’s mother. Jude is warm, caring and inviting – never judgmental – and has always welcomed everyone into her home and life. It’s those same feelings that you can expect when you stay. Adventurous, warm and welcoming – the perfect tiny escape.

BENEFITS

Natural timber and Scandinavian aesthetics ensure Jude provides a warm and welcoming environment. Naturally designed to promote airflow and bring the outdoors in, the minimalist interiors will help you destress and relax. Isolated from the muck and the mire, you’ll be one-on-one with your loved ones. Pick up a book, play a board game, sit in the sunlight. Have a conversation, prepare a meal together. Pour a glass of Adelaide Hills wine – it’s a digital detox.

FEATURES

Jude sleeps two guests in a king size bed, with a provision for two more guests in a comfy king single – if you don’t mind that sort of thing. You’ll have an indoor shower and (composting) toilet and fully kitted kitchen. We provide all the necessaries, like a kettle and fridge – but we don’t supply you with an ironing board.

LOCATION

Set in 180 acres of natural scrubland and adjacent to a conservation park boasting incredible walking trails, creeks, dams and breathtaking scenery.

Situated in the stunning Adelaide Hills, less than an hour’s drive from Adelaide’s CBD, our first CABN location is a quiet achiever. In the hills, you are never far from wine, but with conservation parks nearby you can forgo the wineries and reconnect with nature. Think bushwalking, forest, creeks, waterfalls and bird watching. Expect kangaroos, drop bears, bandicoots, and other shy native animals that you won’t find in the city or the burbs. Wake up to the sound of magpies and kookaburras heralding the dawn. Gaze up at the night sky, with a warming nip in hand. Depending on the time of year, cuddle around the fire pit and talk into the long night with your loved ones. Get back to nature’s circadian rhythms.
