This permanent tent sleeps two in luxury with all the sights and sounds of nature including spectacular rural views. Nestled by a lovely dam where the local ducks swim. Ensuite, basic self catering facilities and fresh farm supplies for breakfast.
BREAKING NEWS We are excited to announce the opening of 2 new tents on another part of property. If you can't find the dates you want here, check out "Donnybrook Eco Retreat Hillview" and "Valleyview"
Our 100 acres provides opportunity to walk, kayak down the river, chat with the farm animals, or just sit back, throw a line in the dam and enjoy the view. Within 1/2 hour you can be in Paterson, Morpeth, Maitland and lots of Hunter Valley wineries. The Valley boasts a wide range of restaurants and cafes. Activities like hot air ballooning, sky-diving and flying lessons are available for the more adventurous.
Located in gorgeous countryside between the Lovedale wine district and historic Morpeth, we are well located to provide a great jumping off point for all the Hunter Valley has to offer. Or you might prefer, as many of our guests do, to give in to the temptation to just sit in the hammock with a book and enjoy the amazing scenery and the ducks playing in the dam.
The tent features:
A strong steel frame with waterproof canvas walls and celiing
Ensuite with hot shower, toilet & vanity
Kettle & toaster
Basic Utensils, crockery & cutlery
Powerpoint for charging mobiles & laptops
Heater in Winter
Reclining Camp Chairs & Hammock
Dinghy and paddle for lazing about on the dam
We will greet you and settle you in. However after that, you can have complete privacy if you prefer it. Though you are welcome to wander around the 100 acres of pastoral and bushland, check out the Hunter River and visit our farm animals (chooks, ducks, goats, and sheep). From time to time we also have baby chicks and ducks for sale. In Spring we usually have lambs too.
Meals other than breakfast are not provided and you can bring food with you, shop at local markets (several options within 15 mins) or eat at one of the many cafes & restaurants in the Lovedale or Pokolbin areas.
The tent is large enough for two and possibly a small child as well (if you bring your own bedding). Unfortunately we cannot accept pets as we encourage birds & wildlife. We ask that you do not smoke in or near the tent as the canvas would absorb the smell.
My wife, Manda and I have lived in Luskintyre with our two beautiful children for 6 years now. We are very lucky to have our 100 acre farm and love living here, with such great rural views and so close to the Hunter Valley wine area. As an Architect, I have always had and an interest in building and have loved the opportunity to create an eco-friendly space for guests to visit.
