This luxury permanent tent has sealed road access and is nestled by a lovely dam where the local ducks swim. With spectacular sunsets and gorgeous rural views, it is an innovative way to enjoy nature whilst still treading lightly on our environment. We have utilised environmentally friendly materials and services wherever possible while still providing a luxury experience.

With a piping hot shower in the ensuite, basic self catering facilities and fresh farm supplies for breakfasts, you will find the perfect base to explore the local wineries, art galleries or ride bikes through picturesque country roads. Our 100 acres provides opportunity to walk, kayak down the river, chat with the sheep, miniature goats, chickens and ducks or just sit back, throw a line in the dam and enjoy the view.

Within 1/2 hour you can be in Paterson, Morpeth, Maitland and lots of Hunter Valley wineries. The Valley boasts a wide range of restaurants and cafes. Activities like hot air ballooning, sky-diving, flying lessons are available for the more adventurous.

Except in the Easter and Christmas period, we offer 50% off for the third night or if you pay for three nights, the fourth night is free.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Relaxing Break Lovely weekend nature treat with an abundance of frog and birdsong. Great for a rest break, particularly if you just want to kick back and read or relax. The dam is soothing to look at day and night, and there are enough facilities to prepare a good breakfast. Love the ducks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great escape !!! The perfect escape from Sydney! We loved the property and the beautiful eco retreat! It had everything we needed and the Owners were extremely helpful and friendly. Our highlight was sitting by the campfire and listening to the wild life at night then waking up to that stunning view!! Highly recommend Donnybrook Eco Retreat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning weekend away Being from Sydney it's nice to escape the hustle and bustle. This was perfect! We arrived after work on a Saturday evening and left on Monday morning. Highlights were definitely sleeping with the tent flaps rolled up and waking to a stunning view and sunrise each morning was perfect. We took some food with us and dined in both evenings, sat by the fire and enjoyed a quiet drink. Bed is super comfy and warm, the bathroom is more than adequate and the privacy was fantastic. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely incredible!! Where to begin?? This place is truly amazing and a rare find. If you are looking to get away from it all, and have a quiet escape then this is definitely the place! We arrived and instantly felt relaxed. Everything was as it looked in the pictures, and then some! The place was immaculate, fridge stocked with our supplies, the romance hamper was an added bonus with the champagne and chocolate fountain too! The bed was so ridiculously comfortable, and lying back watching the ducks swim and cows roam the paddocks, you instantly left your usual day to day life. Manda came and welcomed us, and helped us with any queries we had. So accommodating and lovely. She and Phil were also really helpful with email correspondence in the lead up. Donnybrook is only a short 15-20 min drive to the wineries, and its such a pretty drive at that. The tent was surprisingly warm, given we were there in the middle of winter. The fresh eggs from their farm were just amazing, and the pancake mix was to die for! We didn't want to leave and this will definitely be a regular place for us to come and escape when we need some down time. Cannot wait to return - thank you Manda and Phil. You have created an exceptional haven and one that will forever be remembered after this weekend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW...Amazing escape to the ultimate relaxing wknd Donnybrook took us away to a sensational, relaxing weekend with the pleasures of 5 star accommodation & hospitality in the most amazing county-side surroundings. We were able to switch-off and just enjoy the art of doing 'nothing' apart from eating, watching the sunrise & sunset and lazying around the lodge. Manda provides a delicious breakfast daily which is such a nice touch and we packed our own picnic basket of food for our lunches & dinner (as we didn't want to venture out). We highly recommend Donnybrook and will definitely be back.
