Camp Road Estate is situated on 90 acres of rolling hillside in the Lovedale region of the Hunter Valley Wine Country, commanding stunning views of the Hunter Valley vineyards, Lambs Valley, Barrington Tops and the coast at Stockton.
Your hosts, Duncan and Libby Thomson - cardiac surgeon and cardiac theatre nurse respectively - say Camp Road Estate is the result of a sea change in 1997 that got a little out of hand. 'After looking one weekend at some property in the Hunter Valley to escape the Sydney rat-race, we stumbled upon the beautiful 90 acres that has become our vineyard.'
Since 1997 the property has been slowly developed with plantings of Shiraz and Semillon in 1998, and Barbera, Merlot, Verdelho and Viognier in 2000. In 2001, a rammed earth home was built and Duncan & Libby moved on to the property permanently. Camp Road Cottage (above) is the latest development on Camp Road Estate, providing the perfect accommodation for a family or 2 couples seeking the serenity of a weekend getaway in the Hunter Valley.
Camp Road Cottage is warm, charming and modern with full kitchen amenities, 2 bedrooms with their own ensuites, spacious living area with a wood fire, spectacular views and even a piano in the living area to have a sing along after an evening of great food and fine wine. The cottage was completed in February 2008. Visit our accommodation page for further information and booking enquiries.
