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 5 out of 5 by from Great place to chill and centre yourself! If you want to get away from it all this is the place. A safari style tent with a luxurious bed, you can just sit and watch the birds on the dam, listen to the trees and water and generally relax. The owners provide eggs, bacon, pancake batter and all the trimmings and you can cook up breakfast and eat on the deck at your convenience. The whole tent is set up in eco style with composting toilet, recycled floor boards and low energy lighting. We had a ball and wished we could have stayed longer than our two nights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Property Donnybrook Eco Retreat is a fantastic spot to stay if you're looking for something a little different with your accommodation but don't want to full on camp. Upon arrival we were greeted by Phil who showed us around the property and showed us how everything worked. All breakfast ingredients for the next three mornings were ready to go in the fridge which included pancake mix, eggs, bacon, bread, juice and milk. All the items you'd need for camping are supplied including deck chairs, cutlery/crockery/utensils, power, comfy bed, lighting and ensuite. It is a very quite and peaceful spot and even though the weather wasn't great we could still enjoy lying in the comfy, warm bed while looking at the beautiful scenery. The ducks were also a great surprise and kept us entertained throughout the stay. The only thing I could fault was the frogs croaking in the night, other than that everything was perfect! We look forward to coming back when the two new tents are built!
