Our Location
In the lower Hunter Valley, 2 hours drive from Sydney and just 45 minutes from Newcastle Airport. Set in the prime rural valley known as Lamb's valley, just over the historic Luskintyre bridge, 5 minutes north of Lochinvar. Go through Maitland and turn right off the New England Highway after the pub in Lochinvar. We overlook Tranquil Vale Vineyard and are minutes away from the Lovedale wineries and 20 minutes from Pokolbin. Wyndham Estate is just across the river.

Our Attractions

Tranquil Vistas is the location of El Prado Alpacas, one of the leading alpaca breeders in the Hunter and Central Coast region. Relax and enjoy watching the alpacas graze just outside your window or take a stroll along the many laneways in the property and see them close up. Engage in a more personal interaction with the alpacas at feeding time each morning. Observe the wide variety of domesticated and wild water fowl (ducks, geese, black swans, pelicans and more) that reside on the large lakes of Tranquil Vistas.

Visit the many well known vineyards and restaurants not to mention golf courses (at last count 6) within 20 minutes drive of the farm. The quiet rural roads are ideal for bicycling and walking. Other nearby attractions include Hot Air Ballooning, the magnificent Hunter Valley Gardens, historic Morpeth, Newcastle, Nobby's, Lake Macquarie as well as Port Stephens and Nelson Bay. The Farmstay is conveniently located just 10 minutes away from the major shopping centre at Rutherford.

El Prado Farmstay provides ideal accommodation for small groups (2 to 4 couples) attending any of the international quality concerts held regularly in the lower Hunter vineyard region.

El Prado Farmstay is also suited to the couple who just wishes to experience solitude and quietness at night, away from the mad rush of the city.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had booked the Farmstay because it had enough rooms to fit our group and was abit worried about the size of the house. Although once we had arrived we new straight away this place is going to be great! We arrived late in the evening with no problems finding it, we couldn't see the surroundings because it was so late, the place was neat and tidy inside and out as far as we could see. The kitchen, dining, lounge, outdoor/BBQ area, rooms were beautifully furnished and open with so much space. It felt as if we were at home. The pictures on the website does not do the place justice. The place is great. The Alpacas are adorable and we wish we could have gotten up early enough to help feed them although we were all so relaxed we missed feeding time. The veiw in every direction when it is daylight is just beautiful. We didn't have any problems at all. We ALL loved the place and did not want to leave, wish we could have stayed longer and met the owners to Thank them personally for allowing us to stay and for there great hospitality. It is really an amazing place to stay and will definatley be returning. Thankyou Again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This property is fantastic. It is very spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. The entire house is in excellent condition, and has beautiful views of sweeping hills and gorgeous alpacas (we were lucky enough to see a newborn!). The owners are lovely and make you feel very welcome. This place was a fantastic find, and we would recommend it to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous House - very clean, warm and welcoming. We were fortunate to meet the owners of the house, and learned all about Alpacas' mating rituals (even got a front row seat!!!). Would definitely come back again. Very relaxing.
