Wonderful long weekend
Our family of 16 adults and dog had a wonderful long weekend at Tharah. The location is beautiful and close to some great wineries. Generally the facilities at the house were good.I’ll write privately regarding some suggestions. Thank you to the staff at Hunter Valley Stayz for good communication and returning the forgotten hairdryer!
What a great place for such a big group with plenty of space
I stayed here a few years ago and was impressed with all the renovations they've done since then. Extra bedrooms and bathroom (great for the 18 of us who were attending a wedding) as well as an awesome games shed with plenty of space to hang out and enjoy the peaceful surrounds. The kitchen has also been renovated with so much space, plates and cups, there's even a mixmaster if you want to bake a cake! Loved the massive dining table with enough space for all 18 of us to sit for breakfast. Everyone commented on what a great place it was for such a big group with plenty of space for everyone to have their own room and space to chill out. Will be back again when we have a large group stay in the Hunter. Such a beautiful house! Thanks for the great communications and early check-in. The place was amazing and the renovations since we last stayed were phenomenal.
Great stay for large groups
The property has idyllic views and perfect for large groups wanting to spend time exploring the hunter valley. Great seperate area for games too.
View from the house was beautiful
This is an incredible place to stay. The place has a great layout, so even though there were a lot of us it never felt crowded. The hosts were so friendly and called on the day to make sure we got in ok and we had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend staying here. The view from the house was beautiful.
We had a wonderful time at the property, it was fantastic for a large group of friends with plenty of space for us to relax and enjoy. We particularly loved the games shed enabling us to have an additional place at the property to explore. Would highly recommend the property for those looking for a clean, nice and fun stay away.
This place was absolutely beautiful and had Eveything you could want for a nice few days away! We definitely be back!
House catered for all of our needs
Thank you for a fantastic stay. We came as a group of 18 people for work and loved our stay in this beautiful home. The location was fantastic, the views were superb, and the house catered for all of our needs. The fireplaces were stunning and provided adequate warmth with the internal central heating also. The house accommodated for 18 people sleeping separately and didn't feel like we were on top of each other. The party shed was ideal and not only provided a bit of fun, but also a great break out area for our working groups. Thank you for accommodating us all and making the whole stay seamless and enjoyable.
Amazing property, highly recommend
Amazing property, plenty of space for 14 work colleagues. Loved the games room would come back again.
Space for everyone to come together or be separate
Amazing location with beautiful surrounds. So many rooms and space for everyone to come together or be separate. Would recommend and will be back!
The house was perfect for our group
My friends and I celebrated my birthday at Tharah. The house was perfect for our group especially the outdoor fire on a cold night.
The place was perfect
We stayed at the property "Tharah" for my wife's 60th birthday. The place was perfect for our family. We had a wonderful time there, and could not have asked for more. Our contacts with Hunter Valley Stays was fantastic, always friendly and helpful. We'd certainly return without a second thought.
Stunning house with incredible views. Had everything that we needed! We loved cooking pizzas in the pizza oven.
We could spread out
Have had a wonderful 3 days staying in the Hunter Valley. The house was fantastic. Perfect for adults, little kids and everyone in between. Great kitchen, so many bathrooms and having 2 living areas and the games room out the back meant we could spread out. Would definitely recommend
Fabulous amount of rooms
We had a fantastic time at this property. Plenty of space for all guests
Great weekend away
This property is perfect for big families and big groups of friends! Lots of space for activities and great location! Would recommend and stay again!
Beautiful and clean. Great location. Great property and it suited our family. Wonderful weekend
Family Reunion Excellence at Tharah
Tharah met and exceeded our expectations for our Family Reunion for 16 guests (and 2 dogs) in Feb, 2023. The property was missing nothing to make the stay thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining for guests ranging from 18 to 87! The ability to self-cater with every confidence that there were all the amenities to enable us to do so made for a hugely successful time. We utilized every resource while there..... the pool, the games room, the pizza oven, the BBQ, the completely equipped kitchen, local wineries, and other amenities. We practically lived outdoors under the covered patio which lent itself perfectly to hot summer days. The home was spotlessly clean and well serviced prior to our arrival. Thank you to the managers of this property! A few tiny attention to details that are just routine wear and tear we have made note of, but nothing of any importance. Highly recommend this property!!
The accomodation was great!
The accomodation was great! Lovely stay in the beautiful Hunter, clean rooms, hygienic, and loved having the pool there overlooking the greenery.
Home away from home
This was one of the best accommodations we have ever had the pleasure of staying at. It allowed our family to stay & play together. What we loved a lot was the dining table that allowed our entire family to sit down together for the first time ever. I couldn't recommend Tharah House enough it has everything you could want or need.
This house was amazing it was perfect for our family reunion and was very comfortable for 13 people
We had the best time with our family at "Tharah". The house has spacious living areas , comfortable lounges and decorated beautifully. The kitchen has 2 big fridges, a 4 oven stove and all the cooking equipment needed to cook meals for a large group.The large 22 seat dining table accommodated our family . A door leads from this area to a spacious covered entertaining area which has a long table and seating, bbq, wood fired pizza oven and a gas heater which makes it cosy even when the temperature is low. Just off this area is the fenced swimming pool [was too cold for a dip} but in warmer weather would be wonderful. The beds were very comfy and nice linen .The games shed is a great amenity, with table tennis, pool table[ in good condition] lounges , fridge etc.. Overall a perfect house to enjoy ones family or friends,[ we all felt it was our new home!] Owner John and Hunter Valley Stays are a very welcoming , helpful and caring team..thank you from all of us.
Truly a beautiful home and perfect for a big group
An amazing stay! Truly a beautiful home and perfect for a big group. We had 14 ladies all stay and everyone was so comfortable and so excited about the house. Outstanding amenities and close enough to everything. Absolutely gorgeous property with a spectacular view to enjoy. The hosts were extremely easy to communicate with and very accommodating. Will definitely keep in mind for future trips to the lovely Hunter Valley.
Great property for a large group
This house was perfect for our large group stay. The facilities were excellent, and covered all bases. Plenty of beds, a very large kitchen and the games room which provided lots of entertainment. The house was clean and the location was great, with beautiful views. Properties that can accommodate such a large group are hard to find and we would highly recommend this one.
A fabulous time had by all
We had our Team Christmas Party at Tharah and we had a fabulous time. The amenities are excellent and the view is sensational.
Would love to come back with a large group
Was a lovely property. Plenty of space for the family. Would definetely use Hunter valley stays again and would willingly stay at THARAH again if a large group gathering was required.
Thoroughly Enjoyed Our Stay at Tharah.
It was exactly like the photos.The place offered many amenities and had lots of things to do for people of all ages.
Beautiful House, Amazing Location!
If you love the country, this is the place to be. Beautiful views of the mountains. House was very big, great for a family get away.Thank you for being so helpful, loved our stay.
Honestly incredible!! Exceeded all expectations.
The property had everything we needed for a perfect stay. Can't wait to come back!
Just perfect for our large family celebration
We had a lovely weekend at this property. Very helpful staff who really helped us with the process. Fabulous house for large groups and the seperate games room in the shed was fabulous for the young ones.
We \had an excellent stay at Tharah, perfectly sized and well thought out for a group of 18.
Wonderful Property for Large Groups
The property itself is fantastic for large groups as plenty of room, tables, games room etc. Walking distance to a couple of wineries too.
Thanks for having us!
Lovely cosy yet spacious property with a very scenic outlook. Loved the outside veranda with massive table for family gatherings. Kids (and big kids) loved the games room and the outdoor fire pit, amazing memories thanks for having us.
Very impressed with the house and facilities. It has been so easy to relax and enjoy our special celebration as a family . The location is quiet , the view spectacular, the space abundant, the facilities above expectations.
Excellent for our large family group
Tharah is an unpretentious yet extremely comfortable and well designed home perfect for a large family group. The outlook is beautiful and the home is well positioned close to Cessnock but far enough away to really feel in the country.
Ideal for our family group
Tharah was ideal for our family group get together for a 60th birthday celebration. Well set up, great entertaining space and perfect for a large family group.
Perfection. Personal touches, great service.
Tharah is a wonderful destination with great amenities. The games room & pool are a big bonus. Professional staff with excellent response rate thank you.
Great Service - Thank You
We had a wonderful time. The lay out worked really well for our group. The games room and pool were a wonderful bonus! We were impressed with the service we received.
Perfect for our large group
Perfect for large groups. Great facilities and nicely finished inside. Property manager also great to deal with. Thank you!
The property was in a perfect location, rolling hills in a quiet location. The house is beautifully maintained and also beautifully decorated.
Absolutely fabulous home
We rented the house for our family wedding.. it was magnificent.. Each guest had a beautiful comfortable room to stay in for two nights. The home is vast and has plenty of room for a large group. The view is beyond beautiful.. stunning and so so relaxing. Everything you need is there, including a pool and fantastic games room.. The Pizza oven makes delish pizzas and the outdoor deck fabulous for dining alfresco. The indoor dining table is so large it comfortably fits the whole gang. It is so tastefully decorated that everyone was commenting on how ingenious the design was. Thank you Tharah .. you sure lived up to our expectations
Couldn't fault our stay - beautiful!
I honestly could not fault our stay at Tharah. It could not have been easier to organise and the place itself was beautiful, homely and very clean. The property had enough amenities to keep adults and kids occupied and relaxed for 3 days. The surrounding views and landscape was gorgeous and we were still so close to the HV gardens, chocolate and cheese factories ad endless wineries. Thank you to the management team at Tharah. You were so quick to respond to any queries and only too pleased to help!
Great place for a group get together
What a great place for a family or group get together in a beautiful rural setting. We celebrated a family milestone with 9 adults and 9 children. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were plentiful and modern. The fact that we could sit all 18 around the magnificent dining table was great. We did the same outside as well. The pizza oven was well used. The games room was very popular with the children as was the bonfire facility. "Awesome" was the word used. The manager assisted with the retrieval of an item left behind. Great and friendly service. Would recommend this property to any large group.
Tharah house was fabulous. We went for my Hens weekend and we could not fault the house! We definitely look forward to going back!
A beautiful destination
Tharah was again a beautiful destination with luxurious furnishings and fittings. We gave the pizza oven a real workout and enjoyed having a table that we could all gather around.
Relaxing and beautiful location with plenty of room for all the family to be together for a special birthday.
Everything and more!
Tharah Estate was everything we wanted and more. Although we had a bit of rain one day, Tharah has a beautiful covered outdoor space to still enjoy the BBQ and wood fire oven facilities. The house is super spacious which allows to have a great weekend away with friends but still have a bit of privacy. We didn't even use all the different parts of the house. We love cooking so the kitchen with all its Smeg appliances was a real treat. TIP: there's a 2nd fridge in the shed that we had originally missed. Plenty of space and storage in the house!
We could not rate Tharah high enough! An absolutely beautiful property with outstanding views which was so peaceful and quiet! Perfect for our girls weekend away! The property fit 16 of us so comfortably as did all the facilities. The kitchen - WOW!! The back shed is an awesome addition and was so beautiful sitting under the fairy lights at night! We could not fault anything at all and can not wait to visit again!
"Great location and tidy beautiful home!"
The home was awesome, the location was perfect...we had the best time. Thank you.
We had a wonderful time in this beautiful well equipped 9 bedroom,5 bathroom home. It accommodated 17 ladies with ease and the pool was in full use day and night. This home has everything you could ask for...and more. Not far either from Cessnock and of course the wineries. Thoroughly recommend it.
Great place for large group
This is the 15th year this group has gone somewhere. Catering for all our needs takes quite a bit of planning.Tharah fulfilled all our requirements plus some. The play shed was enjoyed by the males ready to do battle over pool, table tennis and darts. The large kitchen and dining area allowed easy food preparation and the table allowed us all to be together. We were all impressed with the lovely decor and comfortable seating areas. We are deciding whether I need to search out alternate venues or we decide to make Tharah our annual escape.
Worth every cent!
Amazing property! Cannot fault it. Everyone had the best time. The games room was the best! Phenomenal! Also every dealing I had with Hunter Valley Stays reservations/customer service team was excellent. They made it so easy! Already keen to book again.
