Gateway to the vineyards

  • 5 of 5

The cottage itself is charming and beautifully decorated but with all the modern conveniences; lovely kitchen, verandah and comfy beds. It is located close to town so within easy walking distance to restaurants. We loved the fact that the local pool was just around the corner so we could cool off after a warm day after touring the vineyards. The staff at Hunter Valley Stays were very helpful and answered all of my questions very promptly. We'll definitely be back!

Simply stunning

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Country Belle. The house and its furnishings are stunning and from the moment we walked in the door we just felt at home. We had a jam packed weekend and it was the perfect location to experience all the Hunter has to offer. My only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jo for taking the time to give us such wonderful feedback for Country Belle. The house has some beautiful federation style and furnishings to match. As the house is so centrally located to the valley you have the choice to just walk into town or a short drive to all the local wineries and restaurants. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next trip to the Valley. Regards, Hunter Valley Stays.

Amazing Property...inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

The Country Belle was a gorgeous two night stay. The place was so clean and well stocked with tea/coffee, chocolate and a delicious bottle of local wine that we instantly felt at home! I will definately look to stay here again when I head to the Hunter region.
