We were very impressed by cottage number 5, with its broad verandah looking out onto the surrounding bush in this quiet corner of the Hunter Valley. A well-stocked fridge and wood supply greets you on arrival: the owners are lurking somewhere in the background, but it would have been nice to meet them too, having come all the way from...

Hi ... Thanks for the feedback. Sorry to have missed you . It`s a fine line between intruding & being friendly so we err on the side of caution . Being next to the National Park possums sometimes play on a cottage roof. Apologies for the WIFi. Between Telstra & the NBN we have been disconnected & only have a...

Stayed with a group of friends for 2 nights. The cottage was large and well-furnished with a cosy wood fire and heater that kept us comfortable during the cold nights. Very quiet and peaceful (although also out of phone reception range). Thoughtful touches such as breakfast ingredients in the fridge (bacon, eggs, bread, milk, cereal) were well appreciated! Highly recommend.

My hubby and i stayed here for our wedding anniversary for 3 nights. Lovely rustic cabins that give you that far away from everyone feel without actually being far away from everyone lol. We didn't have to talk to anyone the whole time we were there! Nice and close to lots of winery's and restaurants. Definitely rustic though so if...

The cottage was attractive, private and very well appointed. Rosie and Paul provided a generous breakfast hamper and all sorts of thoughtful little inclusions that made our visit perfect. We only stayed a couple of nights but could easily have stayed longer to play a few holes at the 'Royal Lovedale Golf Course', walk in the National Park or visit...

Love dale cottages is a great place for a budget Hunter weekend escape. Not going to suit those looking for the 5 star experience but also not priced in that league. We found it to be a great location to explore the vineyards and very private. Cottage facilities were adequate if a bit dated, the rustic feel suited us fine....

Really enjoyed the cottages. They were rustic and quirky also clean and well equipped. Our kids loved roaming around deciding between tennis, cricket, golf or swimming. Plenty of space for them (and the chooks and roosters!). Cabins were private. Loved the fireplace and better still chopped wood was delivered daily. Breakfast hamper was very generous.

Once again we had an amazing relaxing time at the cottages. This is our 2nd visit, the first time as a couple and this time as a family in the 2 bedroom cottage. Everything about the cottages is relaxing and comfortable. Backing onto the national park, we felt completely secluded. My son loved the heated pool, tennis and mini golf....

We recently stayed with friends in 2 bedroom cottage while attending a wedding at vineyard nearby. We thoroughly enjoyed the rustic bush cabin with the warmth of the wood fire and the comfort of period furniture and a generous breakfast hamper. The owners Paul and Rosie were a delight to meet and give you plenty of space to enjoy the...

The cottage we stayed in, number one is very run down and in need of some urgent maintenance. Upon arrival we discovered we had no running water, on further investigation I found that the water pump from the tank needed to be reset, problem fixed. Outdoor furniture was very old and one leg snapped on one of the chairs we...
