“A lovely relaxing stay”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

I booked the Lovedale Cottages as a base for a 3 day stay in Hunter Valley as a treat for my father's 70th birthday. The cottage was certainly 'rustic' but had every convenience required and could not have been better appointed. The beds were immensely comfortable and the private deck at the back a little sun trap - so lovely to have breakfast outside. We had a minor issue with the stove on the first night and Paul could not have been more helpful and pleasant, fabulous customer service. The breakfast hamper was substantial and fed 3 adults for 2 breakfasts with som left over. All in all, I would recommend Lovedale cottages to anyone looking for a peaceful relaxing stay away from the masses.

I have stayed at lovedale cottages twice and each time had a ball. First time was a girls weekend away and the more recently took the extended family (8 of us in total). The kids loved the pool, tennis and golf. They cottages were rustic, relaxing and well decorated with everything we needed and really handy to the best of lovedale's wineries and restaurants. Thanks Paul and Rosie!

We stayed over the recent long weekend 4/10/2013. Our 1 bedroom cottage was beautiful. I loved it. Loved the decor inside was old, rustic and modern at the same time. The weather was beautiful. Think I'd like to go during winter so we could use the fireplace. Upon arrival we were greeted by one of the natives the emu, very friendly fellow. We didn't get a chance to use the pool, tennis court, golf course and mini golf but is great to know they are on hand. First night in we had a BBQ. Then cooking bacon and eggs in the morning for our breaky from the goodies supplied. Even the bottle of wine on the table was a nice surprise too. The spa was great it got used every day. Could have stayed longer. Looking forward to going back again.

Lovedale Cottages on Brickman's Lane is a wonderful place to escape the hustle and bustle of every day life in a bushland setting that lends itself to a laidback and stress free environment.
With so many wineries and other attractions in the area it is a great to have as a base and go exploring and return in the evening to relax in front of a log fire, sample your purchases and enjoy.
We would like to thank Rosie and Paul for a wonderful stay and for having the vision to create a place and atmosphere that you want to take home with you.

The cottages are AMAZING, We hired out all 6 cottages with 26 people. There was plenty of room for more. Every cabin had fire places & electric blankets so we were all snug. This is my 2nd time with a large group & I have also stayed with a small group of friends. Paul & Rosie are lovely hosts & the property pets are adorable. I hope to return before end of winter. As I previously mentioned I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in the Hunter.

My wife and I have stayed here several times that’s how much we like it. Our first stay dates back to when it was just 1 cabin with cows.
Love the gradual developments the owners have added.
The 9 hole country golf course circling the cabins is a wonderful touch and a great way to start the day before breakfast.
On one occasion we used the cottages as home base for a family wedding and booked out the entire property, the owners couldn’t be more helpful or friendly. They even arranged for the party caravan to be available for the day after party.
Their local knowledge and contacts are second to none and the location is perfect with a couple of wineries and restaurants close by.
Would go back next weekend if I could.
