Beautful cottage with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here for the weekend. Perfect size for 2 couples and has everything you need to be self sustained and cook and relax. It was a warm weekend so we were able to use the pool before we went out for some wine tasting. Great location!!! Views out the front in the morning with a coffee was the highlight. Kim was kind enough to give us a tour of her other property Bob’s balcony which is another great spot to stay with 4 couples (we will be back to use that space!) the kangaroos and the horse also were so lovely to sit and watch. Make sure you’re there for a sunset, was a beautiful evening watching all the colours over the hills.

Lovely country cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for a long weekend away in the Hunter. Couldn't fault a single thing, was very clean, cosy and had everything we needed. Don't think the online pictures do it justice! We'll be back again :)

Awesome Home

  • 5 of 5

We found it to be a very cosy home to be in, although it was only for the weekend. We loved the country atmosphere.

Very comfortable stay

  • 4 of 5

If you want a place to chill while not being too far from wonderful wineries and restaurants, then this is the place to be. Very comfortable cottage with everything you need, including a woodstove and plenty of firewood (required when staying in winter). In between visiting the many Lovedale attractions, relax on the couch, looking out over the olive trees and the mountains in the distance, while the roos graze in front of the cottage. I needed this weekend...

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed out 2 night stay at this quaint rustic country cottage. It was stylish and extremely comfortable with everything we could have needed. The views are stunning, the fire crackling and the relaxed atmosphere

all so enjoyable.
