This beautiful and charming, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom cottage resting on 2 acres of groomed land has endless views into the Hunter Valley in front of you and the Watagan Ranges embracing you from behind. The country charm will have you falling in love with a yearning to return time and time again.
Just minutes from renown cellar doors, restaurants, world class concert events and the convenience of the Cessnock CBD Bonnay is perfectly placed to take in all that Mount View and the Hunter Valley has waiting for you to enjoy.
Come to Bonnay and see why this is by far and away one of our most popular points of call for our loyal guests.
Outside the gardens and grounds provide ample opportunity to breath in the country air and stretch the legs after your journey. Grab the coffee press and retire to the verandah to soak in some of the afternoon sun that parts its way through the row of citrus. Lay your head back, close your eyes and listen to the sound of bird calls and the soft music that emanates from the lounge. It doesn't get much better than this.
After a long day of wine tasting and indulging Bonnay offers all the comforts indoors to see you rejuvenate and ready to do it all again tomorrow! Plan ahead, but don't plan too far. Most of our guests enjoy Bonnay so much they don't get beyond the front gate.
Upon approach from the drive you will instantly feel as though you have arrived at a dear friend's house. The only thing missing is the warm embrace. Let yourself in to this charming and inviting cottage, drop your bags and make yourself at home. R & R is here.
'Bonnay' is a delightful haven in Hunter Wine Country just a short drive from some of the best cellar doors and restaurants in Mount View and arguably the Hunter Valley. This is the perfect base to launch your exploration of boutique cellar doors and is a very short drive from the not-to-be-missed Bistro Molines.
With endless views of the Valley laid out before you Bonnay is the ideal location to enjoy some well deserved rest and relaxation. We invite you to come and soak up the country air and enjoy our fantastic hospitality. Plan ahead. But don't over fill the diary. The only visit you will make on time, will be the first one.
