Overview

About the property

Absolutely private and picturesque, Goosewing Cottage is located in stunning Mount View, nestled in the mountains above Pokolbin within the prettiest part of Hunter Valley wine country. Our Cottage and Homestead are fully self-contained, architect-designed, eco-friendly and immaculately presented. Goosewing Cottage is located on an extinct volcano, which executes a powerful effect on the peace and tranquillity of the property.

Positioned high in a natural bushland setting with awe-inspiring views of the Brokenback Ranges, we are surrounded by neighbouring farms and lush, rolling pastures and are home to an abundance of native wildlife. Have coffee with the cows or enjoy a wine with the wallabies, yet remain in close proximity to the Hunter Valley’s finest cellar doors, restaurants and attractions. For bushwalking enthusiasts, there are local walking tracks nearby and access to the Great North Walk (which stretches from Sydney to Newcastle) is directly across the road.

Stay in, enjoy a stroll or a picnic on the property and relax on the gazebo by the dam, or venture out. Delight in the convenience of direct door-to-door coach transfers for all exclusive Hunter Valley events, including Day On The Green concerts. Enjoy the food and wine trail, with award-winning local vineyards such as Peterson’s and Briar Ridge, as well as world class restaurants including the wonderful AGFG’s chef-hatted Bistro Molines, just a stone’s throw away.

Whether it be a simple break or a special occasion, we can create an itinerary just for you. We can arrange in-house massages, indulgence packages, food and wine tours, restaurant reservations and local activities such as horse riding, heli-tours, flightseeing and hot air ballooning. We provide a complimentary fresh breakfast hamper with bacon, eggs from our own free range chooks, milk, juice, muesli, home baked bread and other goodies, as well as a fine selection of gourmet tea.
