Wallaby Cottage Country Escape @ Red Belly Farm, Ellalong, Hunter Valley is an affordable, peaceful paradise which is only a short drive from the main vineyards and all that the Hunter Valley has to offer.

Want a change of pace? Wallaby Cottage is the ideal getaway if you are looking for a quiet place in the country to spend time with family or friends. It is an affordable, peaceful paradise in a stunning location and only a short drive to all that the Hunter Valley has to offer.

Set on 35 acres of farmland, Wallaby Cottage is marvellous in summer and is a brilliant spot for a winter weekend where you can be cosy by the warmth of a wood fire. Verandas all around provide an excellent place to light up the barbecue. Here you can enjoy a long afternoon of well-spent, country house time as kookaburras laugh up in the trees and you sit back and appreciate the view of the horses and kangaroos as they leisurely graze in the paddocks.

Soak up the country life watching the free range chickens and guinea fowl as well as cattle and horses. See kangaroos at dawn and dusk and enjoy the wild birds, including king parrots, galahs and kookaburras. Lucky guests can watch the wedge-tailed eagles spiralling above the picturesque paddocks and over the tree covered hills.

For a memorable experience of country life at its best, to attend the concerts in the vineyards, enjoy the wineries, ballooning, the fine restaurants and everything else the Hunter has to offer, Wallaby Cottage is the place to stay.

All this and only 50 minutes from Newcastle and 90 minutes from Sydney.

Thank you for sharing your slice of paradise with the world

We wrote this to Lynette/owner in her guestbook: Thank you for sharing your slice of paradise with the world. We had a wonderful time and will always remember our stay here. Here's our response to the team at Weekenda (not in the guestbook): A big T H A N K Y O U for making our holiday possible. The cottage was lovely as was Lynette and all of the property. We had an amazing time, and realise that you worked hard to make it possible. Big thanks! Feel free to use responses, but mark them as being from 'The Skinner Family' :) It was wonderful.

Thanks so much for this gem of a property...We all loved the seclusion of it...and it didn't actually take us as long as we thought to drive to the main parts of the Hunter...I need a week there...particularly loved the table out the back...and the little touches in the kitchen...great property....
