Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Stay on the opalfields, off grid and next door to the iconic Ridge Castle. Deceptively rustic from the outside, the Knights Quarters is an elegant open plan apartment featuring a full sized kitchen, large bathroom and a Queen and King single bed with luxe organic cotton linen.
Enjoy the views and relax by the fire-pit at night under billions of stars.
Remember this is a genuine mining camp on the Ridge so don't expect five star accommodation. It can be hot in summer and cold in winter!

The space
The Knights Quarters is a quirky structure and was the home of local miners for many years and as with most camps in Lightning Ridge, it features rustic living.

There is a fresh and light amply sized, floor to ceiling tiled internal bathroom with hot and cold water for the shower and a flush loo!

The well equipped kitchen has a stove, microwave, fridge and enough kitchenware to cook up a small banquet.

The Knights Quarters Castle is on solar power and though it is not strong enough to run the split system air-conditioner, there are portable water coolers you can use through the day.

Warm clothes will be needed inside during winter and there is an open fire in the grounds for starry fireside evenings. We’ll provide the firewood.

There is a Queen bed and a King single, we supply organic cotton linen and towels.

The open plan lounge area is spacious and comfortable.
A large flat screen TV is available if admiring the stars gets too much!

Staying in the Knights Quarters is a wonderful experience, the perfect place to explore the mining fields of Lightning Ridge. The famous Artesian Bore Baths (free and open 24/7) are a short drive or long stroll away.

Where you’ll be

Lightning Ridge, New South Wales, Australia

The Ridge Castle is located on Simms Hill. The highest point of Lightning Ridge. The views are excellent. The famous artesian bore baths are less than 2km away. They are free, open 24/7 and a must do.

To access the Ridge Castle, it is approximately 2km from town and there is approximately 1km of rocky dirt road. Take care driving in low cars, it is all weather, so driveable when raining.

The Ridge Castle is surrounded by mining claims. Though shafts are always meant to be covered, we do ask you to take particular care if wandering about. Other attractions nearby include Amigo's Castle, The Black Queen and The Observatory. We can point out a few other local attractions as well. There are many.
