The Convent Hunter Valley

Located in the midst of the vineyards, The Convent Hunter Valley is a delightfully different guest house style hotel in Pokolbin. Carefully converted from what was once a convent, the two-storey timber building has a French Baroque flavour with French doors opening onto deep verandahs. The Convent Hunter Valley was once home to the Brigidine order of Nuns in Coonamble (600kms west from the Hunter) and the entire building was moved to the Hunter Valley, where it was carefully reconstructed amidst vineyards and landscaped gardens.

The Convent Hunter Valley is located at the Pepper Tree Complex, a short stroll from the Pepper Tree Winery and Tasting Barn, and the renowned Roberts Restaurant.

This Hunter Valley accommodation is a small guest house with only 17 Rooms, offering guests that personal touch only a smaller guest house can provide. Relaxing at the guest house with a good book or visiting the wineries - it's your choice for a wonderful weekend or extended holiday at Pepper Convent.


The Convent Hunter Valley offers 17 elegant guest rooms, with French doors opening onto deep verandahs with views over the surrounding Hunter countryside.
