Lochinvar House is a farm stay bed and breakfast offering guests the opportunity to experience a rural retreat in historic accommodation which is close to the New England Highway, Hunter Expressway and a multitude of local vineyards and restaurants.
Established in the 1820’s with the aid of convict servants, “Lochinvar” was one of the earliest land grants in the Hunter Valley. It became one of the first commercial vineyards, even sending wine to competitions in Europe. The first owner was a well-connected young Scotsman, an entrepreneur who established a new bank in Sydney Town which has now become a national name.
Guests enjoy the heritage experience of the original buildings and other reminders of Australia’s colonial past, plus spectacular views over Loch Katrine and the surrounding countryside.
Accommodation consists of five large bedrooms in the Homestead and the original two bedroom Cottage with sitting-room including a double-bed size sofa bed. Consistent with the heritage nature of the property, the Homestead has two bathrooms, the Cottage has one bathroom, and another bathroom is available in the Poolhouse.
The hallways are wide, the ceilings high, the rooms large and furnished with antiques. The large dining room provides a relaxed setting for breakfast, or you may prefer the veranda overlooking Loch Katrine.Heating Tea/Coffee making facilities
