Another brilliant stay at Manzanilla. You would be hard pressed to find any place more peaceful or relaxing in the Hunter. Dom and Jane are the best hosts and make everything comfortable. Definitely be back.

About
Description
These rustic cedar cottages all with outdoor heated spas sunken into the deck have maximized the privacy and seclusion of the 52 acre property in the Hunter Valley. The cottages all have Oregon beams & rafters, More Cathedral ceilings and wooden floorboards. The fully equipped kitchen has a gas cook top, dishwasher, breadmaker with provisions to bake your own bread and even a pod coffee machine. A breakfast hamper is supplied of locally smoked bacon, farm fresh eggs, tomatoes, milk, juice, bread, butter and a selection of cereals. The cottage has coffee, tea and a choice of herbal teas too.Sit back in the lounge watching the flames dance in the wood fire combustion heater while listening to your choice of music from the Bluetooth speaker system. All the decks have the gas barbecue and covered sitting area. Sit back with a glass of Hunter's best wine in the bubbling hot water of your private spa, the best place to star gaze or kangaroo spot. Lovedale, home to the famous Lovedale Long Lunch is filled with excellent restaurants and wineries. The bedrooms all have reverse cycle air-conditioners and all linen and towels are supplied. Less
