"A really lovely home - so comfortable and great for a family get together." Such a pretty spot even in the drought. The beds were really comfy and we didn’t want for anything- thanks so much Desley



"All that we wanted." Weekend away with some friends and we were blown away. Arrived at night and Desley made sure light was left on outside for us so we were not scrambling around in the dark. Opened the door and we loved the country charm throughout house - exactly what we wanted for our weekend in the Hunter. House had everything we needed, was immaculate throughout and we were warm and cosy. Woke up and walked out on the wraparound veranda to see our surroundings and we all said “wow!”. Will definitely be staying here again.



"Restful character farm cottage" Orangevale is a great property to stay at if you want a very relaxing peaceful holiday. Having said that, it is only a few minutes easy drive back to Cessnock if you need provisions, a few minutes to a terrific restaurant, Bistro Molines, and a short distance to a plethora of wineries. The verandah is a real highlight - you can sit in the sun watching the cows, kangaroos, birds, weather. Its a great view and very relaxing. The house is beautifully furnished and renovated, so a nice, comfortable place to stay. Desley is a great host, we didn't meet, but I knew she was available if we had any questions



"A slice of Heaven" Orangevale is a slice of heaven. Just immaculate in a stunning location. 2 days gave us a weeks worth of relaxation. Thanks Desley. We will definitely return.
