About the property

House in Cessnock

Florence Cottage is a Federation home (circa 1910) of undeniable character. The ideal base for your Hunter Valley getaway, this picturesque weatherboard cottage is situated a short walk from the Cessnock town centre while the region’s famed gardens, wineries and concert venues are all only a short drive away.

Embodying the charm of yesteryear, Florence Cottage is ideally suited to romantic getaways, family holidays, business trips and bridal parties. We invite you to stay at Florence Cottage the next time you visit the Hunter.

The Cottage

Situated in the heart of Cessnock, Florence Cottage is a four-bedroom Federation period home that offers guests home-style comforts and convenient access to the surrounding region.

Shielded from the street by green shrubbery and featuring bull nose verandahs and architectural flourishes that call to mind the charms of yesteryear, the recently renovated home promises a memorable stay.

An original wood-fired stove occupies pride of place in the eat-in-kitchen, while stained glass windows, timber floorboards and other period details coexist with an LCD TV and air conditioning in a harmonious blend of old and new.



Florence Cottage sleeps up to 7 people in comfort. Ideal for either a weekend getaway or a longer stay, the sleeping arrangements comprise two Queen rooms, one Double room and one Single room. The bedrooms all feature tasteful furnishings, period light fittings and quality linens.


Plush lounges, stained glass windows and abundant natural light define the Florence Cottage lounge room. It is the perfect place to relax after a day of wine tastings and sightseeing or converse with family and friends.


Featuring an endearingly rustic aesthetic, The Florence Cottage kitchen will inspire your inner gourmand. Bathed in natural light and featuring a gas stove, microwave, fridge, ample bench space and a full complement of dinnerware, cutlery and glassware, the Florence Cottage kitchen comes equipped with everything you need to prepare an intimate meal for two or a dinner party for eight.


Dinner is served. The Florence Cottage dining room seats eight in comfort around the original timber table. Double glass doors, wicker bottomed chairs, tasteful wallpaper and muted lighting set the tone while heirloom crystal and a vintage china cabinet contribute to the ambience. Enjoy a good meal, conversation and the clinking of glasses in the Florence Cottage dining room.


Greenery abounds at Florence Cottage. A manicured Buxus hedge shields the cottage from the street and drooping Jacaranda trees and thriving grape vines set the tone. A large level yard provides somewhere for the kids to run around and is the ideal spot for a summer BBQ.

Fantastic stay for a girls weekend in the Hunter

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here for a girls weekend away. This place is close to the vineyards, shops and has everything you need for a weekend away. Really warm and cosy, we were so comfy with a few bottles of wine from our trips to cellar doors. This place has so much character we absolutely loved staying here.

Brilliant as always

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cared for and much loved cottage with everything you could need on hand. Alas the hail storm prevented us from using the beautiful garden but would recommend this to anyone looking for a central location near to the Hunter vineyards. It's set back from the business of Cessnock in a really peaceful setting and feels like a bit of luxury away from home.

Would recommend this place to anyone

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully appointed federation home located in a quiet street but still only walking distance to woollies and block busters.

The back yard is large enough to accommodate 2 cars and host a modest size family gathering.

Neighbours were wonderful too
