Placed perfectly between Pokolbin and Lovedale, McCarthy's View Hunter Valley is a comfortable and affordable getaway for families and groups of up to 8 seeking a base for their weekend getaway or extended stay.

This spacious country cottage is surrounded by natural beauty and magnificent views. Secluded, yet still close to the action of wine country, McCarthy's View is surprisingly spacious both inside and out. From the nearby dam you can hear the sounds of fish jumping and the water birds calling. To the horizon you can see the Brokenback Range. Inside, relax with a glass of the Hunter's best while catching up on the big game or cup day on the big screen TV with Foxtel.

An enjoyable weekend

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed being at McCarthy View. The house was ideally situated close to the wineries but far enough to give you that privacy.

The house was neat and tidy with the only hiccup being lack of toilet paper and tissues otherwise everything else was great.

Beautiful property in tranquil location

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at McCarthy's View. The house was spacious and clean and the countryside was beautiful. The property is a short drive to all the wineries in Pokolbin and the stars are stunning at night.

The only reason I haven't given five stars is that some of the mattresses on the beds were quite old and soft to sleep on, though the property owners have responded straightaway and will change the mattresses immediately.

Unlike previous comments no breakfast foods are provided during the stay but the kitchen is well-equipped with tea/coffee and the equipment to prepare food.

Lovely location

  • 4 of 5

McCarthys View is in a lovely, quiet location. Not far to Potters Brewery and Wineries. There were 7 of us and we had plenty of room to move with a good size lounge. Large deck and room for cars.

Nice place.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this property recently. I must say I agree totally to previous review in that, a poorly fitted and equipped kitchen. There is no dish sponges nor Glad wrap. There is no instruction on how to use the coffee machine. I agree again with previous review, $200-$300 investment on kitchen utensil and supplies would be good.

Great property

  • 4 of 5

Great property. Considering the price it was a very poorly fitted kitchen re: cooking utensils, pots, pans, oven mitts. Toaster's 1 didn't work and the other burnt bread at the lowest setting. $200-300 investment will set it right and give value for price of lodging

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback! I was not aware of the issues as far as the toaster goes and I will certainly look at having this replaced so that future guests do not experience the same problem. We will also review the kitchen offerings and make sure that this aspect exceeds your expectations on your next visit. Once again, many thanks for bringing this to our attention. It is most helpful.
