Claremont Cottage is a 4 bedroom cottage offering guests the quintessential vineyard stay in the heart of Hunter Valley Wine Country. Located in Lovedale, the cottage is situated to the rear of Claremont House and adjacent to the on-site 'Thirsty Palette' cellar door and art studio.

Accommodation consists of 2 queen bedrooms and 2 twin single bedrooms plus 2 bathrooms, allowing accommodation for up to 8 guests in total comfort. For those extra guests there is also a double sofa bed in the lounge area.

The cottage has a cosy living room with combustion log fire and a flat screen TV, a casual sun-drenched living room overlooking a lovely refreshing swimming pool and a kitchen/dining room. The living area has reverse-cycle air conditioning and the bedrooms have ceiling fans, making this cottage a favourite all year round.

Enjoy a private wine tasting (by arrangement) or lounge by the pool overlooking the vines with wonderful views of the Brokenback Ranges and Watagan Mountains. On cold nights, stoke up the fire and curl up with a good book and a glass of the Hunter's best. Claremont Cottage has a great sense of openess and tranquility.

Perfect property for a relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Claremont Cottage was a beautiful and memorable property that contributed to an amazing getaway in the Hunter Valley. Location is super convenient and practical and the hosts were extremely helpful, attentive and polite. A great accommodation for a large group of people with plenty of space to relax and not feel crowded. Would definitely stay again.

Great Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

??We had the pleasure of staying at Claremont Cottage for 3 nights. It is not easy finding accommodation to sleep 10 people comfortably but the cottage was perfect. There was plenty of space and great outdoor areas which we would have spent most of our time at. The views were fantastic the pool was clean the property was clean all in all we would be more than happy to stay here again.
