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.

Donnybrook Eco Retreat is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The peace and relaxation of camping, but comfortab Sleeping - comfortable and warm bed - you can sleep with the windows open Bathroom - hot shower, composting toilet, basin, mirror Kitchen - fridge stocked with bacon, eggs, tomatoes and toast for your first day's breakfast, and pancake batter waiting for the second day! Fresh milk, juice and condiments all included. Dishwashing to be done in a tub and dishwater disposed of away from the dam Dining - sit on the deck with tables and chairs, or sit by the fire in the brazier on the grassed area just outside, with the tyre swing and rope ladder under the big tree Activities - we enjoyed following the walking trails, including the steep and slippery descent to the creek BYO groceries and wine - you're not even going to need or want to venture out the whole weekend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too comfortable for words! I love it when you stay somewhere and the bed, pillow and linen are a joy to sleep in. Everything about Donnybrook was delightful. The delicious B&B provisions, the total peace and quiet, the views. A true delight. Pity they aren't closer to Canberra! Thanks Manda and Phil. We loved it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleeping under the stars We had a perfect getaway at Donnybrook. We felt like we were literally sleeping under the stars yet felt secure in our luxury tent. I cannot even begin to explain the experience, it was so peaceful falling asleep to the frogs and birds and waking to this as well, watching the sunset and rise. I have never experienced anything like this before, it is a must for everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect couples retreat Where to start? We were so happy to have stumbled upon Donnybrook whilst looking for a peaceful getaway to celebrate our first year wedding anniversary...we could not have chosen a more perfect place. Surrounded by nature and beauty, yet still with all the luxuries and comforts we needed, we felt as though we were on a safari - listening to the sounds of the frogs, so many native birds...watching the kangaroos hop by from our very comfy bed! Initially we were convinced we would celebrate with a special lunch at a local vineyard...but we realised that it would be a waste to leave the serenity of Donnybrook, and so ended up having a feast on the deck. Most importantly, Phil and Manda could not have been more wonderful hosts. So warm and welcoming and giving...and we were so well fed; (it was hard to decide what we loved most: the home made caramel slice, jam and pancake mix; freshly ground coffee, farm fresh eggs, creamy yoghurt, juice, wine, chocolate?!). We will never forget our special weekend at Donnybrook, and cannot wait to return.
