Homestead with history
Ideally positioned on the outer boundary of the Jade Estate Vineyard, Glenmore Country Estate offers the ultimate balance of old world country charm and modern convenience.
The property dates back to the early days of the colony, when the fertile farming land of the Hunter was just beginning to open up to settlement. In 1826 former convict John McDonald took up land in the area now known as Lovedale, before building the region’s original homestead, Glenmore House between 1837 and 1842 using thick hand-made, sun-dried brick walls and a shingle roof. Five generations of his family would go on to live in the classic Georgian-style homestead before it was sold in 2005. Restored and renamed Glenmore Country Estate, the heritage-listed manor has been artfully preserved and is now used as luxury accommodation for those visiting the wine region.
A cosy home away from home, it has plenty of room for guests to explore, with extensive garden grounds, four country-style bedrooms and a newly renovated kitchen, bathrooms and leisure spaces, including a delightfully light-filled sunroom.
Glenmore guests can also take advantage of all the features of the neighbouring resort at Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley, enjoying a casual dining experience at Lovedale Bar and Restaurant or a fine dining experience at Redsalt Restaurant. Take a dip in the largest pool in the region, a spa treatment at the onsite salon or a round of golf on the championship course before returning back to your private country homestead to wind down with a wine on the sandstone flagged verandah.
