Wonga Hill is a comfortable, private farmhouse in the pretty Martinsville valley, at the foot of the Watagan Mountains, surrounded by the Watagans National Park. It is close to the Hunter Valley wine region (30 mins) and Lake Macquarie (10 mins), being situated in between the Central Coast and Newcastle. We are an hour?s drive from Sydney?s north shore, 90 minutes from the Sydney CBD and 40 mins drive from Newcastle.
The heritage listed homestead is one of the original farm homes of the district, built at the beginning of the 1900?s from timber cut on the land. It is a traditional farmhouse,recently modernised but maintaining its traditional character.
The house sleeps 6 -8 people with 4 double bedrooms, dining, lounge with wood fired heater and a Queensland room overlooking the swimming pool. The kitchen includes dishwasher and microwave and there are 2 bathrooms.
This is a working property, breeding cattle and growing oranges and persimmons. You are welcome to walk around amongst the cattle and the orchards. Each year around March we have new calves and you may be able to see some of the mothers and calves together in the paddocks.
The land backs onto the Watagan Mountains national park. Local activities are numerous and varied, including horse riding, 4 wheel driving, trail riding and of course walking. Or if you prefer culinary pursuits you are a short drive from the Hunter Valley. For lovers of the water you are within 25 mins of the beach and even closer to the lake and its watersport options.
Or you can simply relax in the Queensland room, by the cosy fire, or sit out in one of the paddocks or the orchard, in total seclusion and privacy.
