Degen Estate was absolutely amazing!! Everything has been thought of.People who own it are delightful!!! For anyone contemplating staying here, chef’s dinner is a must, what a wonderful experience.
We had a great time during our stay at Degen Estate which is spacious, clean and well equipped with many facilities. We love the sun room very much where we had our group photos taken. We also enjoyed the wine tasting party at Degen Wines. Many thanks for the hospitality of the owners, Jean and Thomas.
Beautiful location and having the kitchen/ dining table in a different room then the television was great!! Arrival and departure was so simple!!
Absolutely amazing! Incredible view, spacious rooms, so much to do. An incredible experience, highly recommended!
Fantastic. We were really happy with everything.
All of our guests were so happy with this property. Excellent quality. Highlight was the sunroom- so beautiful in the afternoon.
Degen Estate was perfect for a large group get away. The interior of the house was beautiful and extremely comfortable. We were extremely impressed with the kitchen and it's cooking facilities. The owner have definitely thought of everything.
Best weekend ever!
A special 60th celebration in the beautiful Degen Estate . Hunter Valley Stays staff could not have been more helpful with every single minute detail! Thanks for helping me celebrate the best weekend ever in the Hunter Valley.
Perfect for our large group
The Degen Estate is an excellent property for a family stay, everything was catered for with plenty of extras to accommodate our needs. My family, all 15 of us, thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Degen Estate immensely, we would not hesitate to book another holiday there as I am always looking for a large enough property to accommodate all of us that is comfortable and private with plenty of space, and this property really fits with our expectations.
Luxury Rothbury stay.
We had a lovely time at Degen Estate on the occasion of my daughter's wedding. By utilising both cottages and the main house we had our whole family together including the bridesmaids which made wedding preparation easy. The house is stunning, well located with stunning scenery in the Rothbury/Pokolbin wine region. The property had everything we needed and more. This property is great for large family visits or for groups of friends, the pool is lovely in the summer but a winter weekend getaway would also be beautiful.
The perfect getaway!
We booked both the Degen Estate and Hillcrest house to celebrate our wedding weekend with a group of our closest friends. It was absolutely perfect for us and the staff at Hunter Valley Stays were more than helpful. The property was beautiful and was more than what we expected. We would definitely love to stay again in the future!
Will definitely be back ASAP!
“I couldn’t recommend this property more! Having booked the house and the two cottages for a hens weekend, we had a number of different groups of friends and this property was perfect! There was ample space for all the guests! The amenities were fantastic! Will definitely be back ASAP!”
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
