Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the every day in the gorgeous Hunter valley wine country is McCarthy's View. Placed perfectly between Pokolbin and Lovedale, McCarthy's View Hunter Valley is a comfortable and affordable getaway for families and groups of up to 8 seeking a base for their weekend getaway or extended stay.
This spacious country cottage is surrounded by natural beauty and magnificent views. Secluded, yet still close to the action of wine country, McCarthy's View is surprisingly spacious both inside and out. From the nearby dam you can hear the sounds of fish jumping and the water birds calling. To the horizon you can see the Brokenback Range. Inside, relax with a glass of the Hunter's best while catching up on the big game or cup day on the big screen TV with Foxtel.
Just a short drive from a plethora of fine cellar doors, restaurants, golf courses and the zoo McCarthy's view is sure to be popular with a broad range of visitors to the Hunter Valley.
We invite you to come and soak up the country air, indulge in the exquisite offerings of wine country and enjoy our country hospitality.
