Overview

About the property

Time to relax… in your own luxury permanent tent nestled by a lovely dam where the local ducks swim. With spectacular sunrises and gorgeous rural views, it is an innovative way to enjoy nature whilst still treading lightly on our environment. We have utilised environmentally friendly materials and services wherever possible while still providing a luxury glamping experience.

With a piping hot shower in the ensuite, basic self catering facilities and fresh farm supplies for breakfasts, you will find the perfect base to explore the local wineries, art galleries or ride bikes along picturesque country roads. Our 100 acres provides opportunity to walk, kayak down the river, chat with the sheep, miniature goats, chickens and ducks or just sit back, throw a line in the dam and enjoy the view.

We have sealed road access and within 1/2 hour you can be in Paterson, Morpeth, Maitland and lots of Hunter Valley wineries. The Valley boasts a wide range of restaurants and cafes. Activities like hot air ballooning, sky-diving, flying lessons are available for the more adventurous.

Except in the Easter and Christmas period, we offer 50% off for the third night or if you pay for three nights, the fourth night is free.

Minimum Stay: 2 nights (3 nights Long Weekends and Christmas peak)

BREAKING NEWS: We have just opened 2 new tents on a new dam in another part of the property so if the dates you require aren't available here check out other Donnybrook options: properties No 195701 & 195727

A great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over a long weekend and loved coming back to the tranquil nature of Donnybrook after a busy day touring the vineyards. We fell in love with the pet ducks who made daily visits to the pond - so much character! Glamping is the way to enjoy nature with a little bit of luxury. Highly recommend.

Just amazing

  • 5 of 5

Exactly like the photos, with no TV to distract us we went to bed and ended up sleeping for 12 hours. the frogs are noisy but it adds to the experience, great hospitality and the yummiest pancake batter ever. Already planning the next trip back. 10 out of 10

Beautiful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for having us at your beautiful property. We awoke to the sunrise every morning with a soundtrack of frogs, birds and ducks, it was truly magical. You generously filled our fridge with goodies for breakfast and delicious sweets! We had everything we needed to have a perfect stay and the tent actually proved to be warm enough even at 2 degrees! The only small area that could use some improvement was that some cutlery, glassware and the BBQ appeared to be dirty from the group before us. This was a very minor thing and didn't impact our beautiful stay.

Thank you again, we will definitely be back.
