The Olive Retreat @ Belford Green Olives

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

The Olive Retreat is a comfortable, secluded cottage set in the tranquil working olive grove of the award winning Belford Green Olives. The Olive Retreat comprises a large open plan living/dining area with cosy wood fire for those chilly winter nights, 3 queen sized bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen.

Enjoy the sunsets with a glass of local Hunter Valley wine from the large back deck which enjoys spectacular views over olive trees to the Brokenback Mountains. Enjoy breakfast on the wide front verandah listening to the rustle of the trees and call of the birds.

The Olive Retreat is a haven for wild life; kangaroos and wallabies graze amongst the trees and close to the house, the bird calls are magnificent morning and evening. You will also share the cottage with a very shy but cute gecko.

Other inclusions are reverse cycle a/c, TV, DVD player and laundry facilities.

The Olive Retreat was my home for 10 years and I now open her to be enjoyed by visitors to our stunning valley.

Stayed 2 nights - wished it was longer. Took the teenagers and dog and everyone had an amazing time. Every detail catered for making so welcoming. Loads of room and privacy. An absolute gem. Can't wait to get back there.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

The Olive Retreat provides a peaceful location with all the comforts of home, within close proximity to all the Hunter Valley has to offer. We had two small children with us, who loved the kangaroos that visited the home each day.

Owner's Response: Thank you Rebecca, The wildlife that the olive grove attracts is wonderful - from the kangaroos, birds and rabbits, right down to the tiniest insects and bugs of the most unusual shapes and sizes that can be found on the olive trees, to the dragonflies hovering over the dams, there is always something interesting to see. Did you notice the mother swallow nesting under the back veranda? She fledged three babies recently. Regards, Annette

When can we move in?

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fantastic Hunter Valley home. From the drive through the country, the olive groves and the first glimpse of the home, The Olive Retreat was exactly what we wanted. The house itself is a wonderful traditional Australian country home, with lots of space, a well-stocked and equipped kitchen, lots of linen, and all the conveniences we needed. Outdoors is spectacular. We loved walking through the olive trees with the kids and the dog, and the deck is great for a glass of wine and a barbecue. We'll try our hardest to come back often.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Once again The Olive Retreat was just perfect for our short stay. It was incredibly hot during our stay and the ducted air conditioning was a saviour. Lovely comfy bed and well stocked pantry and fridge items. Loved sitting out on back verandah with a glass of bubbly and just taking in the peace and quiet of the countryside. Daisy our labrador enjoyed a visit from the neighbours dog!!

Annette was a pleasure to deal with and went above and beyond.

Many thanks Jenny and Chris

Tranquil time amongst the Olives

  • 5 of 5

We spent three days at the Belford Olive Retreat and loved our time there with our dog. The house is comfortable, well-appointed, tranquil and close to the wineries. The large, undercover deck at the back of the house was great and well used for all meals.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

Although we only stayed for two nights, it was as if we had been there much longer. The house was very spacious, clean and comfortable, only challenge was the getting the shower the right temperature, but you would soon get the hang of that if you stayed more than a couple of days.

The setting of the property, way back from the very quiet road and with the olive groves stretching ahead both in front and behind the house, was perfect, very peaceful and calm. Waking up to kangaroos quietly grazing within 20m of the house, it felt extremely relaxing, actually as if time stood still and you could breathe it all in and feel a strong sense of wellbeing.

This is a very special place, beautifully presented and with little touches that make all the difference, I can't recommend it highly enough.
