In the heart of the Paterson Valley you will find a secluded country homestead

This magnificent, luxury country retreat spectacularly overlooks rolling hills and the distant Barrington’s.


Three rivers – the Paterson, the Allyn and the Williams have their source in the Barrington’s and flow through the valley to the Hunter. Highclere means Bright Water in old English. With 800m frontage to the Paterson the name chose itself!


An easy 2.5 hour drive north of Sydney (mid way between Maitland and Dungog). The Paterson Valley is convenient to both Hunter Valley Wine Country and the World Heritage Barrington Tops.


The Homestead sleeps up to 10 adults in 5 individually designed bedrooms, and contains 3 bathrooms over the two pavilions:


The Original House (1903) has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, each with independent access to the bullnose verandah. Three queen bedrooms and one with twin beds. One queen bedroom has a Claw Foot Bath ensuite.


The Living Pavilion has a fifth bedroom and the third bathroom. The living areas include two sitting rooms and dining room which connect through French doors to two huge hard wood deck terraces for outdoor dining.


Highclere offers a choice: to let the Living Pavilion with one bedroom, perfect for a couple, or both pavilions for groups of up to 10.


From $250 per night for one bedroom pavilion
