Guest contribution: "I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our time at Valley View Cottage. You indeed have million dollar views, especially from the top of the had time to drive around the area, and in my opinion you have one of the best locations and situations in all of the hunter valley. Actually, that was the consensus of the entire group and they insisted that I write you to thank you and express their pleasure with the property".

We have successfully been in business for 16 years. We aim for you to be comfortable while enjoying an Australian country experience - that feeling of 'getting away'. You can see more photos on our flickr page and instagram and talk with us.


Located within minutes of wineries, restaurants, cafes, golf, ballooning etc Valley View Cottage is close to the heart of the Wine Country action while offering 5 private and peaceful acres of park like grounds and gardens, only for your enjoyment.

Tour the vineyards, play golf, ride a horse, hire a bike, have a picnic or enjoy a scenic lookout. Valley View Cottage is in the vineyard district, and offers a base for many day trips to enjoy the delights of Barrington Tops, Port Stephens and surrounding National Parks.

Few properties offer such solitude, peace and scenery, and facilities. A country escape like this is becoming harder to find.

Valley View has farm fencing with the neighbouring properties - your pet will need to be supervised, but has private acres to enjoy in your company.

Bring your own pet bedding.

We ask that you fully clean up after your dog - bag and bin all dog waste

No pet is to be left unaccompanied in the house at any time.

A place I didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is an excellent place to stay for a number of reasons. It is very well set up for a large family or group of friends with 2 wonderful outdoor dining areas. The kitchen is easily the best equipped of any we have tried over the last 10 years with no shortage of utensils. We have often been to places with kitchens that have 2 plates/bowls, a beaten up saucepan and the odd blunt knife and the owners think that is OK.

The grounds are fantastic and our whippet and Italian greyhound loved charging around the lawns. The internal flooring is slate, which is ideal for a pet friendly place but it wasn't too dark inside due to sufficient windows keeping it light enough. There are coded locks on the front gate and front door, which eliminates the hassle of having multiple keys and adds to the secure feeling on rural property.

Perfect pet friendly holiday!

  • 5 of 5

It was a fantastic long weekend with our furry friend! The property was great and very clean. Everything we needed was provided.

There was plenty of space for our dog to run around and play in the garden. Specially the outdoor area, BBQ and the inside fire place were exactly what we wanted to have! And all located in a quiet and amazing landscape.

We all enjoyed this weekend so much!

Thanks a lot!
