ACCOMMODATION
White Cottage

In 1822 Newcastle ceased to be a penal settlement for convicts, thus allowing the Colonial Secretary to open up land in the Hunter Valley for free settlers.

In 1832 when the surveyor Robert Dixon was commissioned to map the Mount Royal Range (Barrington Tops), the superintendent's cottage on Belltrees, "The White Cottage", built by Hamilton Collins Sempill, was recorded as a landmark.

This original convict-built sand stock cottage has two ensuite flats, sitting room with open fire place, kitchen and laundry and extra bedroom.

The White Cottage is situated on the banks of the Hunter River and is the ideal place for an intimate and private country escape, or just a great place to spend time with friends and family. Meals can be ordered from the Country House.
