About the property

Take a break in Hunter Valley Wine Country at Summerfield, your own self contained 3 bedroom cottage set on 30 acres of open countryside with views to the horizon in the West and to the Brokenback Ranges in the South.

Located just 1½ hours drive north of the Wahroonga M1 turnoff in the heart of the Lovedale wine growing area, Summerfield is ideal for a weekend escape. Enjoy a weekend of wine tasting, and enjoying the Hunter's best restaurants or just while away the hours lazing on the veranda watching the kangaroos and the sunset over the dam.

If you are a star watcher, the big sky at Summerfield offers fantastic vistas of the night sky unimpeded by city lights.

Book your accommodation at Summerfield for any of the fabulous concerts in the vineyards or the Lovedale Long Lunch.

Accommodation and amenities

Park under cover and walk through the wide screened verandah that is on three sides of the house, then in through the french doors to an open plan kitchen, dining and living room. You will feel at home with the fully equipped kitchen including pantry provisions and living room featuring well stocked bookcase, including board games, and a TV, DVD, and CD player.

The slow combustion stove will keep you toasty warm in winter with air conditioning if you prefer.

There are two queen bedrooms with french doors leading onto the verandas, crisp white linen and bathrobes. A third bedroom on the veranda has two single beds which

can be converted into a queen size bed if required.

The bathroom has a spa bath, heated towel rail and laundry facilities. Fluffy towels and toiletries are provided.

Relax and Unwind

Summerfield is set up so you don't need to worry about what to bring.

All linen is supplied and the kitchen is stocked so that if you would like to cook, you will only need your fresh ingredients. The pantry has all the basics and the kitchen is fully equipped.

Your breakfast is taken care of with fresh fruit, eggs, bacon, bread, butter, yoghurt, juice and milk.

Everything you need was supplied, tranquil quiet location to ourselves - the kids loved it.

  • 4 of 5

The house was fantastic, a good size for 5 people, clean and tidy. The kitchen stocked with supplies, and coffee machine was very handy. There were mozzies but that was expected and we had plenty of aeroguard :-)

The yard / front and back paddocks were neatly mowed and fantastic for the kids to explore. They loved the mini horses which came to say hello from the paddock next door.

It was super easy to get to from the Hunter expressway.

And finally, the sunsets and the stars were incredible!

Corinne was lovely and so easy to deal with.

We will definitely be back :-)

Perfect wine country escape!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Summerfield. The house is cosy and very well equipped. Every detail is thought of.

So easy to just bring your own essentials and everything else is supplied. Thank you for the extra touches like breakfast supplies, wine, fruit, chocolates and robes.

The sunset looking across the dam towards the hills was absolutely spectacular.

It was so convenient to tour the vineyards and also catch the bus to the concert at Bimbadgen.

We hope to come back again!

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Summerfield earlier this week and did not want to leave. It is the perfect place to get away from it all and simply take time out to relax while watching the roos, rabbits and birds at play. My dog also enjoyed the property and walks in the area with plenty of smells. Corinne has supplied everything and more than you need, it felt like a real treat to be there. We have stayed at many houses but this one ticks all boxes for us and we can’t wait to return.

Summerfield is located in the Lovedale wine growing area of the New South Wales Hunter Valley. Wine tasting is the predominant activity.

For those who like to visit the wineries by bicycle, there are numerous bike hire companies (including electric bikes) so you can visit the wineries by bike.

Within 5 minutes drive of Summerfield there are horse riding facilities.

There are three championship golf courses within 15 minutes drive.

There are numerous restaurants and coffee shops also within 15 minutes drive.

The main attraction at Summerfield is the tranquil location and open vista, however the kangaroos are always a joy to watch also.

Are you a star watcher? The big sky at night at Summerfield is fabulous for gazing at the night sky.
