Country Living

Experience a tranquil setting away from the city with nothing but peace and quiet

About US 

Shute-Hill Country Retreat is a family run cabin service that provides secluded and independent accommodation alongside the Hastings River. Located in Ellenborough, we are a short 40 minute drive west of the well-known, mid-north coast town of Port Macquarie, NSW. 


We have two cabins available for booking throughout the entire year. Both cabins offer a country living experience and include a variety of living necessities, such as:

  • A master bedroom with a queen bed
  • A second bedroom with a double bed and bunk-bed arrangement
  • A bathroom with toilet, shower-and-bath, and laundry facilities
  • A kitchen with a stove-top oven, microwave and refrigerator
  • A living space with two fold-out lounges and a television
  • An outdoor patio with an accessible BBQ

***For cabin prices, please contact us on (02) 6587 4280 or email - we also allow tents to be pitched on certain locations, ask us where.

On-Site Attractions

Our main attraction is the Hastings River which is a minutes walk from the cabins. It provides the opportunity for swimming and canoeing. In addition to the Hastings River, Shute-Hill Country Retreat sits on over 600 acres offering scenic trails, perfect for nice bush walks or orienteering.
