The space

David & Hilary, owner/managers, invite you and your family to relax and enjoy your holiday at Coal d’Vine Cottage.

Cessnock is now the gateway to the Hunter Valley wineries, and Coal d’Vine Cottage is only a five minute drive from Pokolbin & Lovedale Wineries. It has the charm of a country town with all the facilities you need to enjoy your holiday.

Both Pokolbin & Lovedale wineries are a popular wedding destination, and Coal d’Vine Cottage is some of the closest accommodation you’ll find that can suit large groups of guests.

Cessnock is located in the Hunter Valley region which brings with it lots of opportunities to explore the area. There are a lot of speciality stores and producers including wineries, beer brewers, cheese makers, chocolatiers, sweet makers, olive producers, galleries and tea houses as well as public gardens, picnic areas and tours.

While staying with us here at Coal d’Vine Cottage, there are a couple of things we really recommend visiting.

The Hunter Valley Gardens span 25 acres and ten feature gardens. Enjoy exploring the fragrant rose garden, take a rest above the 10 metre high waterfall in the Sunken Garden, check out the views at the lookout, and let the kids (young and old) enjoy the fairy tale characters in the Storybook Garden. With 8 kilometres of walking paths, there is plenty to see and explore.

The gardens host some great events throughout the year, including Snow Time in July where you can experience an icy wonderland of a giant skating rink, a 25 metre ice toboggan and the opportunity to build a snow man in the Snow Play Zone; Christmas Lights with millions of lights on display lighting up the gardens; and school holiday activities for children.

The Hunter Valley Zoo is a great day out for all of the family, and is just 6 kilometres from Coal d’Vine Cottage. With lots of animals to find, interactive walk through area and the option to feed kangaroos, touch a reptile, cuddle a koala and pat a wombat, everyone will love the zoo. Take along a BBQ or picnic, and enjoy a full day out at the Hunter Valley Zoo.

If you’re looking forward to a round of golf while on holidays, there are a number of great courses in the area including Stonebridge, Cypress Lakes Golf and Country Club, Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley and The Vintage.

For those a little more adventurous, or looking for a romantic date while on holidays, we recommend booking a hot air balloon flight over the Hunter Valley. There are a number of companies that take flights over the vineyards early in the morning, and it’s a great way to check out the area from another view.

The Hunter Valley Wine Festival runs over two months – May & June – and features more than 70 events. This is a great way to spend a day during these months; you can attend wine making master classes, vineyard tours, wine tastings, join a wine and food trail, cooking classes and more. There are also a range of Chef’s Plates events which let you check out some of the best restaurants in the area at set prices. Other events that happen during the festival include the Lovedale Long Lunch (great when visiting with a large group).

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to stomp in a bucket of grapes? The Cessnock Stomp happens in April every year; it’s a free event for all the family (you can take part in the stomping but there is limited places) and you can help us celebrate our local wineries and food producers.

In October 2016, Jazz in the Vines celebrates its last event and it’s something you can’t miss. Book now to see greats like James Morrison, Leo Sayer, Mental as Anything and more.

Pokolbin is the home over 10 concerts each year including Day on the Green featuring popular artists you’ll know from growing up. Concerts are held at Hope Estate, Bimbadgen, Tempus Two and Hunter Valley Gardens. At less than a 10 minute drive from your accommodation this is a great way to enjoy a day with your partner, family or friends – order a picnic hamper and wine, and sing and dance to your favourite tunes. There is a local shuttle bus that can pick you up and drop you off at designated points meaning you don’t need to worry about driving.

If you are looking for something different while on holidays to the area, in early October Opera in the Vineyard returns. It’s a great way to celebrate some of our local food and wine while enjoying some of the top Opera performers.

Throughout the year, the Cessnock Performing Arts Centre hosts some great shows and performances. Once you’ve booked with us here at Coal d’Vine Cottage, make sure you check out what performances are on during your holidays.

Cessnock has the benefit of being close to a number of Hunter Valley towns, and there are a few we really recommend checking out.

Wollombi Valley is a great day out, and is a great way to get off the highway on your way to Coal d’Vine Cottage. When driving from Sydney, take Route 33 Tourist Drive via Calga/Peats Ridge from the Sydney Expressway. This will take you through the township of Bucketty and then following the old 1840’s convict built route to historic Wollombi Village. Continue on Wollombi Road, through state forest, to Cessnock.

If it’s wineries you are after, a day trip to the Broke Fordwich region is sure to help. The region is home to over 10 cellar doors and a large number of restaurants and dining options. The area also produces some of the best fruit in the Hunter region, so make sure you visit some of the many farm gates selling fresh produce.

Just over an hour away you’ll find the towns of Nelson Bay, Salamander Bay and Shoal Bay where you can discover over 20 beaches, swim, snorkel, dive, whale watch and more. You can also bush walk in Tomaree National Park, and enjoy the local restaurants and cafes.

It is only expected that when in the Hunter Valley you’ll have plenty of options to get out and discover the produce and wines grown and made in the area.

There’s a couple of towns we really recommend visiting, both for their wines and their historic sites:

• Broke – wineries known for their Semillon, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Verdelho, Sangivese, Barbera and Dolcetto.
• Lovedale
• Maitland – fruit wines made from local produce, Steam Fest and Groovin the Moo
• Morpeth – Visit the historic shop fronts, wharves and hitching posts as well as Morpeth Wine Sellers and Moonshine Distillery
• Paterson – historic town of the Barrington Tops. Visit Tocal Homestead, Barrington Tops National Park or a self-guided walk of the mid 19th century sites
• Pokolbin – home to some of our most well-known wine labels and gourmet food
• Singleton – Royal Australia Infantry Corps Museum, Yengo, Mt Royal and Wollemi National Parks, self-guided walk through the historic precinct
• Wollombi – national parks with walking trails, lookouts and Aboriginal rock carvings including Devils Rock, Flat Rock Lookout and Finchley Trig.

Cessnock is a great base for your Hunter Valley holiday. Close to wineries and with gourmet foods, historic sites and walking trails galore, you’ll enjoy being close to everything at Coal d’Vine Cottage.

This place was perfect for our needs! It had plenty of space, the kitchen was large and well-equipped, and there was plenty of off road parking. Would highly recommend and we'd definitely stay again when we're in the area.

The location of the house was suitable however the stale odour of the old carpet was strong. The second bedroom with double decker beds was good for 4 to 6 pax but the 3rd bedroom has one mattress on the floor with small hike up floor board has lost its usefulness and we could feel the boards underneath as the mattress was sagging. David was very hands on when we found the shower stall water outlet were clogged and he unclogged it on the next day. All windows has protective screen against insects however the WC toilet has a defected screen so by night time, we had to endure the insects flying around our heads while we use the WC. The BBQ pit was wonderful and dining on the new outdoor table and chairs was excellent. The new electric stove and oven in the kitchen was wonderful to cook breakfast and lunch. The kitchen was fully equipped with all types of utensils so cooking and baking anything was possible. We wanted to help in cleaning the carpet by using the vacuum cleaner but the smell from the machine told us it has lost its usefulness too. It was sprouting dust from the other side of the machine. Otherwise, we were quite alright with everything but the old carpet really need to go.

Response from David And Hilary:
The carpet is commercial carpet. Will arrange in the next few weeks to get the carpets cleaned now that it is Spring. Noted areas where we can improve and we will buy a new vacuum cleaner.
