A special weekend away
“The property was magnificent and was exactly as we expected from the pictures on the internet. We had my parents 60th wedding anniversary over the weekend and it was ideal. The kitchen was amazing for catering, the views beautiful, and the pool refreshing. So lovely to be able to just walk in and feel at home. Thank you for making our weekend so special.”
What a beautiful place to come together with family as I prepared for my wedding Every room was incredible and every need was accommodated for. Thank you for an amazing stay. We will definitely be back.
The house was amazing and the service exceptional
The property was excellence in every aspect. The booking and extra service from John was amazing. The personal attention and phone calls were really appreciated. Cannot speak highly enough of the whole process. We were there as a retreat from work and to plan for the future and the environment could not have been better. Thank you!”
Degen Estate was more than I expected, great place to escape the city and unwind, stone throw from Pokolbin, Cessnock down the road, 50+ acres of bliss, house catered for all, didn't want for anything, didn't want to leave, we stayed over 3 days with a large family, we all had plenty of space, kids had plenty of grass to run around on, will re visit again soon, Highly recommend...Hunter Valley Stays whom we booked through were awesome and very professional.
Lovely property. Beautifully furnished and very comfy.
Degen Estate was absolutely beautiful!!! I organised a Team Corporate Offsite at the property and everything was exactly how i imagined it to be! A lot of break out spaces, full kitchen for our cooking challenges and the pool to relax and break away! The team at Hunter Valley Stays were very accommodating and answered every question of mine, whether it was a stupid question or not. I will definitely be looking to stay here again and 10/10 for everything including awesome customer service!
We stayed here for the weekend while we had our wedding in the Hunter Valley. The location and house was better than we expected. It was fantastic.. thank you. Thank you for all your help, we had the best time and wouldn’t change a thing!
A fantastic venue for a family/friends weekend providing luxury and all the extras you need. Linen luxurious and most comfortable bed ever. Rooms tastefully decorated. We ordered a drop off a dinner party which was "fine dining quality and all local produce. Kitchen immaculately stocked with crockery, glass wear. platters, Nespresso machines. Sitting room pictured is lovely. Sunday we lunched at the huge outdoor table.
The accommodation was spectacular!

The golfing girls thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Degan Estate Amazing entertaining areas, well appointed kitchen and luxurious bedrooms
“I cannot recommend Hunter Vally Stays highly enough. From the first email through to locking the door on departure, they were absolutely fantastic and helpful, Degen Estate was sensational. My entire family came together and all 15 of us were absolutely comfortable in both house and cottages. Thank you for a fantastic experience”
Outstanding weekend getaway
Beautiful property that was very well equipped. Very comfortable for a large family group. Kitchen/dining area was a highlight
BEST wedding weekend we could have asked for!!!
From the moment we set eyes on Degen estate, escorted by our friends at Hunter Concierge, we knew we had found the perfect venue and location for our wedding weekend getaway. The House and surrounding grounds were absolutely perfect for our special day and featured prominently in our gorgeous wedding photos!! The Degens are a lovely family and truly worked to make our weekend extra special by rushing to ensure the installation of the amazing pool, which added that extra touch of class to our occasion. We met the whole family over the lead up and had wonderful experiences with each of them. The house provided very classy and comfortable accommodated our wedding party as was perfect for side events and get togethers around the massive 22 seat dining table! Our guests raved about how amazing the place was and the breathtaking views they took in over the east to west of stunning Rothbury. The sophisticated styling features in all the bridal photos and the backdrop of the stunning and spectacular grounds and SUNSET really make our photos captured throughout the weekend super special and will forever remain in our hearts (and albums). Degen wines were also a very special treat for the bridal party, each receiving rave reviews (ask for the Special Release Shiraz, to die for)!! I would recommend this place (complete with self contained cottages) to anyone planing a weekend away with friends, or a lovely couple planning their big day (Make sure you get in touch with Luke and Dave at HC). We'll definitely be back to reminisce and enjoy and appreciate the beautiful place that will forever remain a part of our lives. Thank you once again Sasha, Jean and Tom for our amazing experience and cherished memories. Love The Grooms
