INSPECTION WELCOME BY APPOINTMENT
Lovedale Wedding Chapel & Receptions accommodation is situated in the Hunter Valley wine country vineyard area and offers three one bedroom cedar cottages with north and south facing verandahs, cedar lined ensuite, lounge, and kitchenette, set in and separated by native landscape gardens.
The estate is ideal for a romantic escape or for three couples who still enjoy their privacy. Please note that as the cottages each contain only one queen size bed, there are no facilities for children at the Estate. If you wish to accommodate children there is limited space in the lounge area, and bedding would need to be supplied.
