My girlfriend and I recently stayed at Wendy's farm for two nights in the converted shipping container - don't be put off, it's fantastic, flooded with natural light, comfortable and cool. Honestly, I couldn't recommend Hilltop highly enough. If you like solitude, peace and quiet amongst natural beauty, friendly animals, lovely people, fresh air, stunning views, sustainable living, clear night...

My husband and I stayed at Hill Top and pitched our own tent on Wendy's beautiful property. Wendy is friendly, and the facilities are great. Perfect location for star gazing by the fire place. Would recommend this place to anyone visiting CookTown.

Peace, beauty, privacy and nature. Wendy has a range of simple yet comfortable accommodation for different needs, all wrapped in a view of forested bluffs and the wide open plain between them. I prefer the self-contained cabin with its indoor/outdoor kitchen and outdoor fire. I had a lovely stay - my third. Now Hilltop Farm is a periodic getaway from...

We just had another fabulous week at Hilltop. A stay at Wendy's is now a 'must' any time we go to Cooktown or up the Cape. Its sooo laid back and relaxing and the way Wendy has incorporated farm stay into her amazing permaculture garden is fascinating. We learn so much every day! We opted to be fed this time,...

As a southerner, Hill Top Farm was a unique experience. Together with permaculture farm host Wendy, the rural lifestyle offers guests the opportunity to experience a real down-to-earth lifestyle, with all that one requires. The comfortable indoor/outdoor accommodation, open-space and freedom offers guests the opportunity to observe farm animals and wildlife close-up. Where-else can you shower with beautiful green tree...

I cannot write highly enough of Wendy and her kindness, staying at Hill Top Farm is like staying with a dear friend. The farm is surrounded by distant low mountains and is about 20 minutes from the interesting town of Cooktownl To the practicalites. We stayed in the cabin and the tent in July, both were comfortable, warm and quiet....

Hilltop Farm is a wonderfully rustic and comfortable place to stay. The surrounding landscape is stunning and living outside in the kitchen/dining/lounge in rain (sheltered) or shine was bliss. We stayed with our two teenage boys, who fell in love with Pepper the puppy. It is a totally relaxing environment with a lot more charm to it than a motel...

We stayed at Hilltop for several weeks during the 'wet'. What a wonderful, peaceful place. The cabin is as comfortable and well appointed. Wendy is a welcoming and informative host. We have learned a lot about permaculture and the local area. Gorgeous skies and sunsets. The dog was welcomed and loved the space and freedom.

I am glad you had a great time staying at Hill Top Farm. There are so few opportunities for travellers to have their own space and a beautiful environment - i am glad you enjoyed it.

We stayed on Wendy’s Farm for three days in August. It was just the quiet place in nature, we had been looking for: beautiful walks nearby, and Cooktown ist just a short drive away. Wendy took the time to give us insight about organic farming/Permaculture. Coming from Germany we appreciated her british background and her stories about living in Australia....

“Two choices: stay in the converted shipping container apartment (2 twin beds) or the safari tent (2 twin beds). Both are within a few steps of each other. Mom and dad in the tent and 2 kids in the apartment or vice versa. We had fun mixing it up.”

“The shipping container ( the 2o by 10 ft bedroom) was novel but very comfortable. We can't comment on the safari tent as we didn't want to intrude on the WOOFers who were helping on the farm.”
