Retreat Homestead (circa 1912) is a beautifully and sympathetically restored country homestead. Recapturing its once majestic presence, yet incorporating ‘a few’ modern conveniences makes your stay that much more memorable. ‘Retreat’ is self-contained with full kitchen, dining/family room complimented by a magnificent wood fire heater for the colder months, bathroom, bbq and outdoor eating area. The three beautifully appointed bedrooms sleep up to 6 people.
Retreat Homestead has Pay TV, free to air, wireless internet, washing facilities. All linen and towels are provided for your stay (a minimum of two nights).
Retreat Homestead is located at the gateway to the Upper Hunter wineries, being only 10 minutes from the beautiful Hollydene Estate. World acclaimed thoroughbred horse studs are in easy reach, with Coolmore Stud only minutes away by car.
The homestead is set on over 150 hectares of prime agricultural land and glorious natural bushland at the foot of the Wollemi National Park at Jerry’s Plains in the Upper Hunter Valley. ‘Retreat’ is exactly what the name implies, a perfect get away to relax or escape for a short while or extended period from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
You can enjoy the magnificent sunrise over a steaming cup of coffee or watch the day draw to an end with a glass of your favourite wine on the verandah. There are several signposted bush walks, an abundance of wildlife to enjoy during the day with cattle and horses grazing in the background.
Sorry, not pet friendly (working farm).
