The Hunter Valley is the ideal place to get back to nature, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice luxury and convenience. Stay at a country lodge or boutique hotel and enjoy the kangaroos and colourful birdlife from your balcony or private patio. Take in the sweeping views of the rolling hills and sprawling vineyards at a spa retreat or resort situated right on a winery estate. Of course bed and breakfast guest houses provide a welcoming introduction to this delightfully contented and restful area. Choose from an intimate home in a quaint and rustic village or take in the idyllic beauty of a country manor as you enjoy the delectable offerings with some B&B home cooking. Yet another lodging option is the self-contained holiday home. Suitable for larger groups or for an intimate couple’s getaway, a holiday home rental is the perfect option for an extended stay, where all the comforts of home are provided.
