Welcome to Sugarloaf Dairy, circa 1906 - an eclectic mix of vintage style with contemporary comforts.

Sugarloaf Dairy is the perfect escape, a character-filled quintessential timber weatherboard farmhouse steeped in history and situated in a peaceful Valley only 5kms from historic Dungog. Whilst staying at the dairy you have access to the surrounding gardens, orchards and paddocks. Enjoy the stunning views from the wrap-around veranda or take a stroll through the beautiful gardens down to the freshwater creek. Perfect for entertaining with Ilve stove and large farmhouse table, or bbq in the shady pergola.

The interior is simple but stylish, whitewashed walls, vintage furniture, stainless steel appliances, organic cotton bedlinen and towels. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 with queen beds, the 3rd with two single beds that can be joined to make a queen.

Please note there is only 1 bathroom.

There is a woodburning combustion heater plus a gas fire for colder evenings, or reverse cycle airconditioning for summer.

A stockyard and paddocks are available for guests who wish to bring their own horses, well behaved dogs are also welcome but please contact us for conditions.

The century old dairy was decommissioned many years ago however still takes pride of position alongside the restored farmhouse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peaceful Retreat Amazing weekend away, place is beautiful with lots of room inside and out. The verandah is a fabulous space to lose a few hours. The rooms are presented and styled well. Kitchen has everything you would ever need and pantry has back up for things that you have forgotten. Soft big beds, with good linen. Would definitely stay there again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tranquil haven We had the most peaceful relaxing time at Sugarloaf Dairy in Ictober. It is so pretty and very welcoming with lovely touches such as fresh produce, cosy rugs and lovely bath products. Dogs had a ball as did the kids collecting fresh eggs. Such a beautiful area- tranquility plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful weekend Thanks Ash for a wonderful weekend escape. The house was spotless, stocked with fresh produce and set up for relaxing. Whether on the lounge, by the fire, around one of the tables or in the sun on the verandah, our group of 5 had plenty of room to be together or find their own spot to curl up with a book. And the dogs had an absolute ball in the paddock by the stream. The surrounds are picture perfect - and simply breathtaking at sunset!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful property! We had a lovely one week stay over Christmas with our three young boys. The home is beautifully decorated and stocked with everything we could possibly need. The location is sublime - so peaceful yet convenient to Dungog. We loved relaxing on the verandahs and in the garden and the boys particularly enjoyed collecting the chook eggs each day. We also enjoyed exploring the local area and had a nice day trip through Gresford to Patterson and Morpeth. Ashley was so helpful and thoughtful during our stay. Would love to come back!
