About the property

We look forward to your visit and will do everything we can to make your time with us special. We hope you enjoy your stay with us.

Cellar door - Emma's Cottage Vineyard cellar door and gallery is open Friday 12md to 5 pm and Saturday & Sunday, 10am to 5pm. All of our wines have been made from grapes grown on this property, that have been hand picked, creating distinctive, clean and fresh flavours. Our focus is quality, not quantity. Our wines can be purchased from the Cellar Door or by direct order. The current price list is available on our website. Don't forget, as cottage guests, you receive a discount on the current wine prices, and free delivery to Sydney and local areas, if you buy a dozen wines whilst you are here. The dozen can be mixed and shared if that suits. So you should never be short of a good wine and you don't even have to leave the property to get it!!. Your cottage also contains original artworks by local artists.

Art Gallery - Come and view the vibrant works of local artists. Open same times as the cellar door.

What's included and what to bring

There is a swimming pool available for guests usage on those hot summer days, perfect for a relaxing cool down after a day of exploring, or the perfect way to start the day.

The property itself is 30 acres of fabulous country with approximately 5 acres of almost level grass, combined with rose gardens edging a walking path, complete with rotunda and country dam. The property abounds with kangaroos and local wild birds such as parrots, Magpies, Babblers, Kookaburras to name a few and the range of waterbirds on our dams is at times amazing - we have seen Royal Spoonbills, grey and white herons, ducks, water hens and even the occasional Black Swan and Pelican. There are many more birds to add that real country feel, yet you are only a bird's call from all the Hunter has to offer!!.

Most of all you will notice the peace and quiet of the Lovedale area, you instantly slow down from your busy schedule and start to "smell the roses" and enjoy the peace and quiet - ahhhhh!!

relaxing spot

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Emma's cottage worked well as a base to catch up with family living in Cessnock. It housed our adult children and partners very comfortably with a nice big living area and kitchen and lovely verandah to sit and enjoy the picturesque environment. The pool was great for the kids. A laundry would have been helpful having 2 babies with us but luckily it was only a short stay. Pressure in the upstairs shower was a bit light on.

Owner's Response: Hello, Thanks for the review, we appreciate it and it was lovely to host you and your family. We are totally reliant on rainwater for our water supply and so, none of the cottages has a laundry. Most stays are just for the two nights so a laundry is not high on the list. We will look into the water pressure in the upstairs shower. Normally it is not a problem. Regards Emma's Cottage
