Located in picturesque Lovedale, this park-like country estate is sprawled over approximately 100 acres of gently-rolling countryside and offers spectacular views of the rugged Brokenback Range. Offering an existing country home on the vineyards.
The main homestead is centred around a massive open living pavilion with cathedral ceilings that opens to a central courtyard on one side and an enclosed outdoor entertaining on the other. At one end of the pavilion is a bedroom wing which houses the main bedroom with ensuite and walk-in robe and at the other end is a second wing, which houses the main bathroom, another guest bedroom, laundry and double carport. Incredibly solid and with undeniable country charm, the home is generously proportioned and heated and cooled by wood-burning fireplace and reverse-cycle air conditioning.
The property is also home to Lovedale Smokehouse and Gourmet Pantry, Majors Lane Cooking School and Lovedale Smokehouse Café, along with a boutique olive grove and Semillon, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Shiraz vineyard.

All reservations operate under a strict No-Party & excessive noise policy as this property is in a residential area. Failure to comply can put the security bond into jeopardy.
Prior to arrival, Weekenda will require you to sign an electronic guest registration prior to arrival which will ask for ID (drivers licence or passport), list your guests with contact phone or email for Government Covid reporting, and to re-accept the Weekenda T&C's. Access Codes are only released to registered guests.
As always, but ever so more due to recent times, we strongly encourage any holiday reservations to obtain a 3rd party Domestic Travel Insurance Policy to cover you for all manners of matters which may restrict travel. This is particularly helpful for things like Hunter Valley Concert cancellations or medical emergencies for which we don't provide refunds and which fall under our standard cancellation terms irrespective of the reason. We suggest reviewing policies with 'Cover-More', 'Travel Insurance Direct' & 'INSUREANDGO'..
Please also note that we may have installed a Wifi security camera at the front entrance of the property. We are progressively rolling these out through every property in 2022.
We look forward to having you stay with us.
