Amazing location and self contained lodge
Mysel and my partner, along with our 2 dogs, just spent 2 days in Glendon Brook, close to Hunter Valley, at Winn's place. Winn has been amazing to deal with during the booking process and she very nicely accomodated our request to move the booking not one time, but twice! She has been very welcoming and the place was just perfect: very clean, in a very peacful location and with everything you would need for the stay. Winn also gave us good reccomendations about what to do in the surroundings. We will definitely go back!
Thank you for selecting our lovely Lodge for your night away!

Break from the city
I recently spent a weekend here with my 13 yr old son and our dog, for some special mother-son-dog time! Wattle Lodge was spotless and had everything we needed for some time together. We enjoyed our walks on the property, and the visits from the cattle. There is no wi-fi as stated, but no problems with our Telstra coverage (sadly my son was able to get onto games on his phone!!). However, this gave me some time to enjoy a quiet morning coffee and an evening wine on the deck, enjoying the lovely view!! The house does not have direct access to the enclosed dog yard, but we overcame this with a long rope so he could hang out on the deck with us. We'd definitely stay again. Thanks Winn, Roger, James, Dolly and Ellie Mae.
Thankyou for selecting our lovely Lodge for your tranquil Mother and son getaway!
The dog playground is next to the Lodge and quests can see their dogs and interact .

Why Winn Drinan and James Drinan chose Glendon Brook
The Wattle Lodge is on our rural cattle grazing property which has been passed down through generations by the Drinan family since 1856 and purchased when they left Ringabella,County Cork, Ireland to come to Australia.
