Roscrea Homestead is set in a private and tranquil setting, on a working beef cattle property at Glen William on the banks of the picturesque Williams River.

Few of us are lucky enough to call this beautiful region home – most of us are probably urban, likely rushed, stressed, harried and tired. Sometimes we just need a place like this to recharge our batteries for a time. We will tell you upfront - when you’re at the property you just don’t want to leave. 

Sure there’s lots of things you can do during your stay; you can enjoy fishing or picnicking on the river; visiting surrounding historic towns such as Dungog, Paterson or Morpeth; walking in the nearby World Heritage listed Barrington Tops National Park; taking a BBQ lunch to Chichester Dam or exploring Australia’s famous Hunter Valley wine district.

However – we want to be honest and tell you that there’s something so magical about being there that you won’t even want to go to the shops for food! Originally built as a getaway for RM Williams Chief Executive Group – it is now available to anyone needing to dip their toe into a place that soothes the soul.

Perfect for families and friends to stay for holidays or just the weekend, 5 rooms have a private bathroom, which is essential for communal stays. Importantly – there is plenty to keep the kids entertained (and you in peace!).

There is a swimming pool, a cubby house, a media/playroom – and not least wide-open spaces, fresh country air and nature.

If peace and solitude is what you are seeking – well we have that in spades. The energy of the place is such that you will immediately and arrestingly feel healed, and nurtured.

Accommodation and Features:
Our beautiful homestead is everything your mind runs to when you think about a country escape. Fully renovated, the property can sleep up to 12 guests with all bedrooms opening onto the generous wrap-around verandah.

The main homestead sleeps 8, featuring 4 large bedrooms (3 queen and 1 twin) each with their own bathroom. Along the verandah there are 2 lovely extra queen bedrooms with ensuites to accommodate a further 4 guests, available at an additional cost for the 6th NB: The 6th bedroom is only available for groups of over 10 guests.

The home is luxuriously yet comfortably furnished and features;
a separate rumpus/TV room, laundry and large return verandahs with expansive rural views. Superbly equipped, the large country-style gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with all the mod cons you expect – new appliances, including huge fridge/freezer, microwave, coffee machine, dishwasher and Smeg cooktop and oven. The lounge / dining area is complete with comfortable lounge and armchairs, a large dining table and combustion fire.

Location:
Roscrea Homestead is located about 5km from the village of Clarence Town and 25km from Dungog. It is approximately 2 hours from Sydney, 45 minutes from Newcastle and the Hunter Valley vineyards. Limousine, coach, or helicopter transport from Newcastle airport, to and from the Hunter Valley vineyards and concerts can be arranged. Please discuss your requirements at time of booking.

Added Bonus:
Every reservation at Roscrea will be afforded a 5pm late check out free of charge (subject to availability in terms of same-day incoming bookings). That's right! As long as we are not booked for an arrival on your departure day, your group can enjoy this beautiful space up until 5pm on the day of your departure (availability can only be confirmed 1 day prior to departure). Miss the traffic heading home and really make the most of your stay.

The Minimum Booking price is based on up to 10 guests. Any guests above this number are chargeable on a per person/per night rate. The system will automatically calculate the correct rate when you enter in the required number of guests. Any guest number reductions are non-refundable.

Weekenda will require you to sign an electronic guest registration prior to arrival which will ask for ID (drivers license or passport), list your guests with contact phone or email for Government Covid reporting, and to re-accept the Weekenda T&C's. Access Codes are only released to registered guests.

Please also note that we may have installed a Wifi security camera at the front entrance of the property. We are progressively rolling these out through every property in 2021.

We look forward to having you stay with us.
