Edenview - a large house, set on a beautiful and scenic 5 acre parcel in the Hunter Valley.
Set up for entertaining - and relaxing - and is situated within a few kilometers from the foot of the Watagan Mountain Range in Quorrobolong, just 2 hours north of Sydney.
Edenview is a scenic 25 minute drive to Pokolbin and local wineries, boutique restaurants and the Hunter Valley Gardens, yet just 12 mins drive to Cessnock for all your grocery needs and 20 minutes from the M1 Freeway from Sydney.
As the name suggests, the 180 degree views from Edenview are just magical, capturing the mountain scape and rolling hills of the beautiful Hunter Valley.
Edenview is our home. We love animals, so we understand that you may wish to bring your fur babies with you on your holiday. There is a totally enclosed half acre dog proof yard to keep your fur babies safe and happy.
As well as a few of our own ponies, we have a resident chicken family on site where you can collect fresh eggs daily straight from the nest boxes except for winter time when they stop laying, plus a sheep, resident ducks, a goldfish, and a cockatoo name Maxi who loves to say Hi.
We take our dogs with us when guests have booked the property, and our 3 cats are kept locked up safely in the large shed on the property with plenty of food and water.
Edenview have teamed up with some of the best Wine Tour companies in the Hunter Valley.
There are both half day and full day wine tours available, plus shuttle bus companies that will do transfers to concerts or local restaurants. Rover Buses pick up from around the corner at a very reasonable price, and most chartered buses you arrange will pick up and drop off at Edenview, so no need to haggle about who is the designated driver :
