Located in the Lovedale area of the Hunter Valley, Manzanilla Ridge consists of four separate cottages each located in its own private bush setting on a 52 acre property. Sit back with a glass of wine in the bubbling hot spa while gazing up at the stars, snuggle up in front of the fire in winter or sit out on the deck listening to the sounds of nature.

There are many things that make a stay at Manzanilla Ridge a special one:

  • Loft style cottages-Manzanilla Ridge cottages have cathedral ceilings in the living area with exposed Oregon beams.
  • Seclusion-Each cottage has been strategically placed to maximize your privacy, each cottage offers great views and more importantly you can not see any other cottage from yours.
  • Well appointed Kitchen-The kitchens are designed for those who love to cook meals, from sharp knives and decent sized pots to the stools at the breakfast bar. There is a breakfast hamper provided, a bread maker allowing guests to wake to the smell of fresh bread as well as a Pod coffee machine for the coffee enthusiast.
  • Outdoor spas-Each cottage has its own private heated outdoor spa sunken into the deck. Can it get any better than sitting in a hot spa with a glass of wine staring up to the starry night sky?
  • Air-conditioned-Each room has its own individually controlled reverse cycle air conditioner so your comfort is guaranteed. The main bedrooms also have overhead ceiling fans.
  • Wood combustion heaters-No winter stay is complete without the ambience of a wood fire.
  • Gas barbeque-Each cottage has a deck with wooden outdoor furniture and a gas barbeque for your own personal use.
  • TV, DVD and CD player and Bluetooth tower speaker-Relax in comfort.

    I recently organised a midweek stay at Manzanilla as a birthday surprise for my partner. It was AWESOME to say the least. From my first email inquiry to when we left, Dominic & Jane were extremely helpful. I also dealt with Jessica who was looking after things when Dominic & Jane had some time off.
    The natural setting was so serene we immediately decided that we wanted to stay an extra day, & that was not a problem with Domenic. The tranquility and facilities make it that you don’t have to leave for any reason although you are only 10-15 mins away from the wineries, so we dragged ourselves away one day but couldn’t wait to get back to sample our purchases on the balcony followed by a relaxing spa. The only consolation with having to leave this slice of heaven was the fact that we now knew where we would be having our winter getaway.
    Thanks again Domenic & Jane for having the foresight to set up such a haven.
    Sonia & Steve.

    Took my wife here to celebrate her birthday . Beautiful place with great facilities from the Spa under the stars to the smell of freshly baked bread in the morning you could not ask for a more romantic and relaxing getaway. Log fire in the cabin to keep you warm while sipping on your complementary port and listening to either the sound of the bush or the several music options available before slipping off to a wonderful nights sleeps in the most comfortable king size bed I have ever slept in. Thanks Jane and Dominic for an unforgettable experience.

    I booked Manzanilla Ridge 6 months ago as a getaway to look foward to after the Melbourne Winter and we were not disappointed. This place is a hidden gem. We only met one of the owners – Dom who was friendly and very knowledgable about the local area. The cottages are very well mantained and very private. The bed was comfy and We used the spa and the BBQ facilities. It is the perfect place for a romantic getaway but I could see myself coming back with friends for a girls weekend also in one of the bigger cottages.
    The owners obviously take great pride in this property and undrstand their guests’ needs. It would be a perfect base in winter or summer to explore this beautiful part of the Hunter.
    We will be back !

    In September my husband and I enjoyed an amazing midweek couple of nights at Manzanilla Ridge, where we could totally relax and forget work. I organised the break with some fear and in trepidation as I had never been there, just going on the website as we really needed a really away from everything holiday. We were delighted and enjoyed the spa and food and the ability to be totally on our own. We’re going back next year hopefully.

    My partner and I stayed for the weekend whilst attending Roxette conert. OMG so so beautiful !!! Had the best weekend. Manzianilla Ridge was more than we ever expected or anticipated. I recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a relaxing, private and quiet little getaway. Dominic was so friendly and was extremely knowledgable of the area. Dom suggested various places for dinner but after setterling into our cabin, there was no way we were leaving !!! The spa was a winner for me, especially at night. This romantic little getaway was just what we needed. I know we will be returning in the near future. Thanks again Dominic & Jane.

    We have stayed at Manzilla Ridge many times in the past. Unfortunately for us it has been some time since we last visited. For Christmas we received a gift of a stay at Manzanilla again. I am so looking forward to our time away and catching up with Diminic and Jane. Dominic and Jane are always so warm and welcoming. The cottages are so lovely inside and secluded which makes it even a better escape away. I am really looking forward to the lovely peaceful outlook.

    We had a fabulous stay at Manzanilla Ridge! Everything was so easy from booking to departure. The place is beautiful and has everything you could possibly think of and more! It was so tranquil sitting back relaxing sipping wine and watching the kangaroos. Fantastic hosts Dominic and Jane, will definitely be back!

    I have stayed at Manzanilla so many times, it’s too much to count. This time was for a far different experience. My elderly mother needed serious neurological surgery and had to travel from northern NSW with Dad to the John Hunter Hospital. The rest of the family came up from Sydney. Dominic and Jane had everything ready for us and we got time together between hospital visits. Mum did so well they let her out of hospital a day earlier than expected and she got to rest up in a lovely sunny room with a beautiful outlook to watch the wildlife. I can’t thank Dominic and Jane enough or recommend Manzanilla Risge highly enough. Throughout the years of being a customer, we’ve always been friends since we very first met.
