The Cottage on McDonalds Road

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Our cottage is an old style two bedroom weatherboard with a classic covered country style balcony on the Eastern and Northern side and with a recently renovated bathroom and a cosy living/dining room to relax and watch TV or chill out after a busy day visiting the local attractions. The location is fantastic being minutes to Hunter Valley Gardens, Hope Estate, Roche and Bimbadgen and right next door to the gorgeous Italian Restaurant Il Cacciatore; very central and close if you are attending one of the many concerts in Pokolbin. It is about a five minute drive away from the Vintage Golf Resort & Spa and is surrounded by vineyards, restaurants, cafes and all of the attractions that have made the Hunter Valley Wine Region a favourite for visitors from around the globe.

We offer a very private, relaxing location, a comfortable fully self contained cottage but right in the heart of the action.

The cottage is the only rental accommodation on our property and shares the area up close to McDonalds Road with our newly built fine art gallery.

About Ron Hammond

We enjoyed 23 wonderful years raising our children, living and working in Collaroy in Sydney but we both felt that the time had come for a change of pace.

Art, wine and the Australian countryside combine in a wonderful way in Pokolbin and we have combined all three with the pleasure of providing accomodation on our 30 acre property in the heart of the vineyards.

Watershed Gallery is adjacent to the cottage and will provide an additional interest for guests visiting the region.

We want to provide an interesting experience for visitors and we are excited to be seeing our vision come to fruition.

Ron Hammond purchased this house in 2016

Great weekend away in a cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend at the Cottage on McDonalds road. The cottage is very well located, close to lots of vineyards and restaurants and a very short drive to the Polkolbin shops. Ron left us lots of Easter treats to enjoy while we were there (thanks for the chocolate, hot cross buns and wine!). The cottage was very comfortable and cozy, with a lovely, large garden out the back perfect for having a picnic or for kids to run around. There's also a table and chairs outside where we could enjoy a sunset wine and cheese! The kitchen was pretty basic but this wasn't a problem as it has most of what you need. We really enjoyed our stay at the Cottage and highly reccomend it.

Fantastic place and location

  • 5 of 5

It was fantastic. Very clean, lots of room and every thing you could possibly think of had been catered for! Owners were very helpful with any questions. I highly recommend staying at The Cottage, so quiet - yet so close to all the top wineries. I would happily stay here again
