About this listing

CLASSIC CHARM | MEETS MODERN LUXURY | MINERAL POOL

Hospitality is paramount at Esta Cottage as off -site hosts Corinne and Brad, go beyond expectations. This character-filled cottage with luxe appeal, generously accommodates up to 8 people in 4 bedrooms, with 2.5 bathrooms. There’s sweet passion and care here in the details and extra thoughtful touches.

They’ve been known to bake a birthday cake, or provide marshmallows for a winter fire pit, pool toys for a summer dip, local bubbles for a girls’ getaway, or just a homemade batch of brownies to have with a cuppa on arrival. WOW!

Esta has a special vibe. She’s got tonnes of character and warmth. The minute you arrive, you just feel relaxed and at ease. With classic Federation charm that has been recently renovated, styled and tastefully curated to ensure a relaxing and restorative experience for all guests – proudly offering so many luxe inclusions.

Spend your days soaking up the sun, lounging around the pergola or new in-ground mineral pool (heated in the shoulder months). Or cosy up in front of the wood burning combustion fireplace with a fine glass of Hunter Valley wine.

Entertaining is so easy here. There are large open plan living areas with lovely high ceilings, three dining areas, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen and spacious light-filled rooms that connect seamlessly to the outdoor wrap around verandahs. Guests always comment on “how well equipped the house is and how they needed for nothing during their stay.” The motto at Esta Cottage is “for guests to have The Easiest Getaway.”

The kids will relish plenty of games, books and outside space to spend quality time with family and friends. Enjoy the outdoors by having a BBQ together and gathering around the sizzling fire-pit by night, under a sea of stars.

At the end of a great day, you’ll sink into plush ‘Microcloud’ mattresses and super comfy bedding and maybe catch up on your favourites with free Wifi and Netflix.

You’ll be spoilt for choice as to how to enjoy the wonder and excitement of Hunter Valley attractions. Only 2 minutes away is historic Branxton with all conveniences, and restful yoga retreats, pottery workshops, an exceptional High Tea experience and a Cellar door specialising in sparkling wines created using the Méthode Traditionelle. Venture a little further to savour award winning restaurants, food producers and more than 150 cellar doors to sample delicious wines…and learn about the wine making process in the Hunter Valley region.

Esta Cottage is only 45 min drive from Newcastle and 2 hours from Sydney. and has very easy access to explore Hunter Valley Wine Country and accommodation for wedding parties and wedding guests, as it is in close proximity to Hunter Wedding Venues, as well as major concert events in the Hunter. It’s highly recommended for corporate functions too as it’s so spacious and a great place for a day workshop or meeting for a smaller team (up to 10 for a day trip), with the option for some of the team to stay the night or two. Hosts can help coordinate catering also for lunch or morning teas etc at the property.

A day spent at Esta Cottage in the Hunter Valley wine region is an unforgettable experience. One tip, you may just want to extend your stay to fit it all in!
