Ironstone Estate: A Pet-Friendly Lovedale Holiday for the Whole Family

At Ironstone Estate, we’re big believers in the philosophy that a family is not complete without some lovable furry friends. Our crazy family includes two dogs running laps around the estate, four cows watching us from a distance, and a flock of chickens that aren’t afraid of some social interaction — so we’re no stranger to all sorts of pets. We believe all kinds of family activities are enhanced by the presence of these pets that we love so dearly.

That leads to one thing that makes our Hunter Valley accommodations so special: we are, and always will be, proudly pet-friendly. What does this mean for you, as our valued guests on our beautiful, private Lovedale vineyard?

This means that when you plan your next getaway family vacation, you don’t have to worry about leaving your best pals behind. You won’t have to organise boarding for them, or fret that their needs are properly met while you’re away. You won’t have to deal with the nagging guilt about how much they miss you (because we all know they do!).

Instead, your favourite four-legged friends will be next to you to soak up the sun, take in the beautiful scenery, and run for miles on the large property. As the estate is entirely fenced-in, your pets can roam without fear, or stay by your side if they prefer.

Imagine your next pet-friendly Lovedale family gathering: lounging by the pool while tossing the frisbee to your pup; curling up by the fireplace at night, surrounded by loved ones and furry friends; and taking a beautiful nature walk around the property with your best bud alongside you.

We are pleased that we are able to make this dream a reality for our guests. We believe that because these pets bring so much joy and happiness to their loved ones, they deserve a luxurious vacation too! Ironstone Estate’s fenced-in property is puppy-approved, and you’ll be able to tell by the little doggy-smile on their faces as they enjoy your family getaway along with you.

Whether you are planning a Lovedale trip for a wedding, concert, reunion, or other exciting Hunter Valley event, choose our beautiful private vineyard accommodation to bring everyone together, without the added stress of organising board and care for your pets.

Ironstone Estate provides large group accommodation on a private vineyard in the Hunter Valley. We pride ourselves on being an excellent choice for large group gatherings or intimate family getaways. With your choice of two (or both) large modern farmhouse accommodations, the estate can host up to 26 guests at one time. With spacious entertaining areas both indoor and outdoor, and all the amenities you could need, Ironstone Estate is the best choice for your Hunter Valley vacation, with the whole (and we really mean whole!) family.
