Retreat Homestead (circa 1912) is a beautifully and sympathetically restored country homestead, recapturing its once majestic presence yet incorporating a few modern conveniences to make your stay that much more memorable.

Set on over 150 hectares of prime agricultural land and glorious natural bushland at the foot of the Wollemi National Park at Jerry's Plains in the Upper Hunter Valley, 'Retreat' is exactly what the name implies, a perfect get away to relax and escape for a short while or an extended period from the hustle and bustle of modern day life.

There are three beautifully appointed bedrooms (sleeping up to 6) and a magnificent woodfire heater to enjoy in the colder months. It is fully self contained, with full kitchen, dining/family room, bathroom, bbq and outdoor eating area. You can enjoy the magnificent sunrise or enjoy a glass of your favourite on the verandah as you watch the day draw to an end. There are bush walks a plenty and an abundance of wildlife for you to enjoy.

Retreat Homestead is located an easy 3 hour drive from Sydney, 1.5 hours from Newcastle. We are at the gateway to the Upper Hunter wineries, Wollemi National Park and the famous Upper Hunter thoroughbred studs. The world acclaimed Coolmore Stud is only minutes away by car.

So if you are looking for somewhere to be with friends or family, somewhere to contemplate, or somewhere where you do not have to do anything to enjoy yourself, then Retreat Homestead is the place you want to be.

Please note there is a minimum 2 night stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A hidden gem My family were looking for a place to stay for 4 nights to relax and reconnect as a family with no distractions and we found it at the Retreat Homestead. What a beautiful house complete with all the old world charm but with luxury linen and clean and comfortable furnishings. Beautiful open peaceful surroundings looking forward to returning again. Thanks Viv for your fast and friendly correspondence and your local places to visit especially Hollydene vineyard estate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh the Serenity! We had the most peaceful time at the Retreat. It was my birthday on the 20th and our stay a gift from my husband. Fell in love with the house and surrounding. The attention To detail was superb and it made our stay comfortable and right at home. Our Teenage boys loved the adventure. Our Youngest is studying agriculture at high school they have a Farm At his school and us there early every morning to feed and spends Most lunchtimes helping around the farm. He is very keen on learning so a big thank you to Craig and Scottie for being Encouraging. Thank you Viv for being so helpful in all my enquiries before we booked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unwind Here Beautifully restored, thoughtfully equipped, spacious interiors, we said, Oh this place is perfect dozens of times in three days stay. A little bit further up the Valley but the views alone, the morning birdsong, the peace and quiet make it a great spot, and lunch a little way up the road at Hollydene is extra points.
