The Olive Retreat is a comfortable, secluded cottage set in the tranquil working olive grove of the award winning Belford Green Olives. The Olive Retreat comprises a large open plan living/dining area with cosy wood fire for those chilly winter nights, 3 queen sized bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen.
Enjoy the sunsets with a glass of local Hunter Valley wine from the large back deck which enjoys spectacular views over olive trees to the Brokenback Mountains. Enjoy breakfast on the wide front verandah listening to the rustle of the trees and call of the birds.
The Olive Retreat is a haven for wild life; kangaroos and wallabies graze amongst the trees and close to the house, the bird calls are magnificent morning and evening. You will also share the cottage with a very shy but cute gecko.
Other inclusions are reverse cycle a/c, TV, DVD player and laundry facilities.
The Olive Retreat was my home for 10 years and I now open her to be enjoyed by visitors to our stunning valley.

We arrived just on dusk. The olive grove looked stunning and had a very country feel. Loved the personalized chalkboard welcome. It looked very cozy and impression was that this was someone���s home/weekender. This suited us perfectly. The house was perfect for our plans. We went away with friends and planned to cook our own meals, drink good wine and play board games around the fire. Loved that the fire was ready to be lit, loved the brekky in the fridge ready to go. There was some confusion about if we were in the right place, perhaps a sign or similar on the gate would be helpful? Driving locally we noticed many other places did have signs so we were a little worried we were driving into someone���s yard. The email details were great. We had no trouble finding the place or getting in. We really loved the homely feel of the Olive retreat. There was some comment that the price indicated something a little more high end.5/5 by ,
As soon as we drove into the property, we loved how secluded it was. Then when we opened the front door and heard the relaxing music and saw the fire going, we were instantly relaxed and in love with the place...I'm already trying to work out when we can book it in. I actually want to move was all very easy to organise and access the place...we stayed mid-week so had a free night and there is no chance we could've found anything as beautiful or relaxing all to ourselves for that price.5/5 by ,
We all thought the property was absolutely gorgeous!! Driving down to the house amongst the olive trees was just lovely and when we arrived the house was spotless and it was the attention to detail that we all loved. The fridge had all the basics that we needed and the lovely bottle of wine that was left for us was certainly enjoyed. Everything was fantastic, the beds were so comfortable with lovely linen on all of them. Firewood was supplied and everything we needed was at our fingertips!! We will definitely be back to stay at the Olive Retreat. Our stay at Olive Retreat was one of the best weekends we have all had in a long time. Every detail was thought of and everything we needed was supplied. The Olive Retreat was great value for money.5/5 by ,
We really enjoyed our weekend, all the information provided was really helpful and we loved the accommodation. Everything was well presented, comfortable, and it was in a great location! We managed to visit some lovely wineries and restaurants close by - which we discovered courtesy of the information left out for us. We will definitely keep your details for our next visit to the Hunter, we were happy with the value for the price we paid, and would definitely recommend.5/5 by ,
