Really enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere at Spotted Gums.

Everything was perfect and the welcoming bottle of wine was a really nice touch.

Close to all the action in the Hunter Valley, I would recommend the Spotted Gums cottageto anyone.

Cozy and sweet modern cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Lilly Pilly, the one-bedroom cottage at Spotted Gum and had a wonderful stay! We had our 22-month old son with us and it was spacious and lovely. The owners, Tanya and Bruce were very kind and gave us great recommendations on places to visit nearby. Morning coffee, sourdough toast and cereals were delicious!! Would highly recommend, especially for families.
