Overview

About the property

Wedge-tail Loft (1br) & Wallaby Cottage (3br) are located on Red Belly Farm in the Hunter Valley - The views from Wedge-tail Loft need to be seen to be believed.

Nestled in the foothills of the Myall Range in the Watagans, this gorgeous loft is

full of creative character and is ideal for your own escape to the country or as a

comfortable base for visiting all that is available in the Hunter Valley.

Wedge-tail Loft consists of a sleeping, sitting and kitchen area. It has a bathroom

with a unique view and there is an outdoor area with a barbecue. There is a king

sized double bed, or two singles for twin share if you prefer. Fold out beds can be

added for up to 2 children. The kitchen is fully equipped and the Loft has a TV/DVD

and CD player with an iPod dock.

With the unique and charmingly rustic ambience, an ample supply of books and

some games on hand you will be forgiven for not wanting to leave and explore the

Hunter Valley and the nearby Watagan Forest and Wollombi historic village.

Wedge-tail Loft is pet friendly. However, please be aware that there are free range

chickens as well as cattle, horses and kangaroos on the property. The wild birds,

including king parrots, galahs and kookaburras are a beautiful feature of Wedge-

tail Loft. Lucky guests can watch the wedge-tails spiralling above the picturesque

paddocks and over the tree covered hills.

All linen and towels are provided for your stay along with tea and coffee. Pre-

ordered meals are available.

Wedge-tail Loft overlooks the stable yard, henhouse and the substantial orchard on Red Belly Farm. Guests are welcome to pick the fruit in season and many herbs are available on request.

Set on 35 acres, Red Belly Farm boasts its own 9 hole occasional golf course. Never will you find a course so rustic and unusual. Two holes near the Loft are permanently available for guests who would like to hit a few golf balls for fun. It is a 20 minute drive to the local golf courses such as Stonebridge, Cypress Lakes, Hunter Valley and The Vintage.

For a taste of country life at its best Wedge-tail Loft is the place to stay.

All this and only 50 minutes from Newcastle and 1.5 hours from Sydney.

Also on the site is Wallaby Cottage which is a 3br renovated house that can sleep a further 6-8 people.

Beautiful, peaceful property

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend away at Wedge-tail Loft. Our 3 year old enjoyed picking fruit from a tree, the pooch enjoyed meeting a horse for the first time, and we all enjoyed walking around the property. There are two other houses on this property, all in close proximity, but the Loft is still very private - we could sit on the balcony, enjoying the winter sun all day, without being in view of the other dwellings. The views from the balcony and kitchen are perfect. Very beautiful. Very peaceful. We recommend that you go there and see for yourself :)

Enchanting accommodation

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to relax, unwind and recharge, this is the property for you! Far enough from the wineries, restaurants and boutiques to offer utter tranquility, yet close enough to explore the beauty of the Hunter Valley. Walking trails are close by for the energetic to explore. The accommodation is simple and unique. Being fully self contained it offers everything you could need to self provision. The warm and cosy loft offers picture perfect views from it's windows and deck and from the large comfortable king size bed. Lynette is very respectful of her guests privacy and is very helpful and accommodating in meeting any enquiries or requests. This place is good for the soul!
