Russley Homestead A unique and historic homestead in the Upper Hunter
Russley c.1894 is a charming homestead set on 12 acres of rolling pastures and enchanting gardens. It’s a very calm and special place where you can drop your shoulders, breathe in deeply and just simply be. Russley is just a few minutes off the New England Highway and sits on the banks of the Hunter River in the renowned Segenhoe Valley and is neighbours to famous thoroughbred horse studs. Close by you will find polo fields, historic pubs, wineries, great restaurants, picturesque walking tracks and a short drive to Scone township. We can arrange horse rides on unique trails in the World Heritage listed Barrington Tops or a tour to the studs. Maybe you just fancy a quiet picnic down by the river. All you have to do is ask.
Russley is suitable for all kind of events like Birthday Parties, Family Gatherings, Name Giving, Weddings, Meditation, Quilters, Bird watching, Yoga Retreats, Writers Retreats and a stunning backdrop for Artists or perhaps you just want a private weekend away from the pressures of city life.
