“Could be Improved”
Reviewed 30 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016
3
people found this review helpful

The cottage is a nicely secluded area of Lovedale, up a dirt road. First impressions are good however, there are a few things that could improve a stay at The Cottage. 1. An oven (other than a microwave) would have been handy as most restaurants are closed until
Thursday. Trying to heat a meal for 6 people would be difficult in the microwave. 2. Wi Fi would be good to be able to plan the next day's activities. We were new to the area and had no idea where to head first. 3. Dry cleaning of the lounge covers would be good. I was pleased there were covers! 4. Full sets of glasses would also be appreciated. Fortunately there was only three of us but 6 guests would have had to use the water glasses. 5. We arrived to howling winds and low temperatures so matches for the fire would have been nice to warm the cottage. The air con just wasn't enough. The beds were comfortable and bathroom fine.

“Great little getaway”
Reviewed 16 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Stayed here for two nights for a weekend getaway. Lovely little cottage, great location close enough to the vineyards and local pubs for evening entertainment but secluded enough you feel far from everywhere. Cosy, clean and comfortable. Would happily return next time I stay in the hunter valley.

“The Cottage, homely getaway”
Reviewed 9 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Just arrived home from a beautiful weekend getaway with my friends to the Hunter Valley Region to see Neil Diamond at Roche Estate. The Cottage was spotless, had quality linen, very homely and had everything you could ask for to relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. We had a wonderful stay and will come again. Thank you so much.

“Wonderful Hunter Valley getaway!”
Reviewed 9 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We had a wonderful time at this lovely cottage. The decor was very updated and the inside was very clean. Plenty of space for 2 couples. The house has big windows that look out onto their large property. I woke up and saw a kangaroo right outside! The owner was very responsive to emails and also gave us great recommendations for a few activities around Hunter Valley. We rented bikes and biked from the house to Polkolbin and it was so much fun! The house is in a great location, far enough away that you feel like you've gotten a real escape, but a quick drive to wineries and delicious restaurants! A must stay!

“Peace and nature”
Reviewed 26 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Amazing location, 5 min drive to wineries but off the road enough to hear only nature. A pleasure to stay in. Owner was easy to deal with. Very clean house with towels and linen provided. Everything you need for a great weekend away
