About the property

Tabitha Hill is a restored 2 bedroom cottage (circa 1918) located at the foot of Mount View at the southern end of the Hunter Valley Vineyards. Access is via the F3, approximately 90 mins from Hornsby.

On an elevated site, with views from the Brokenback Range through Mount View to Mt Sugarloaf, it is the perfect base for a short holiday or weekend escape.

The cottage is located 9 mins from the Cessnock CBD along Wollombi Road. It is 15 mins from Cessnock Airport and the Tourist Information Centre and the Pokolbin and Lovedale wine districts. Other wine areas including Wollombi, Rothbury and Broke/Fordwich are also within a short drive.

Attractions in the area include Hunter Valley Gardens and many restaurants including Bistro Molines and Emerson's, galleries, golfing, hot air ballooning and cycling. And with cellar doors like Tallavera Grove, Peterson's Family Wines, Briar Ridge and Savannah almost on our back door step Tabitha Hill becomes one of the best and placed and priced short stay locations in the Hunter Valley!

Homely and Quaint

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this quaint little cottage. Clean, well equipped and with nice little vintage pieces to enjoy. Nothing pretentious to make you nervous staying with small children and dogs, but lovely enough to make you want to look after it well! The owners were friendly and accommodating and made us feel very welcome and comfortable, which was just great. Easy to access, great location. Definitely would go back and stay again.

The cottage was an excellent place to stay. Close to the centre of Cessnock (5 minutes drive) and very well equipped. The hosts were lovely and very accommodating. Even had a home-baked cake ready for us to enjoy.
