The picturesque Hunter Valley is the perfect setting for your special day. The Covent and Circa 1876 is renowned for its sweeping views of the estate and features elegant and contemporary accommodation rooms.

  • Circa 1876

    A short stroll down the tree-lined driveway is Circa 1876, the Hunter Valley’s most iconic restaurant, located in a historic cottage on the picturesque grounds of Roscrea Estate. Circa 1876 has a strong focus on the “farm to fork” ethos using organic produce that is ethical and sustainable with the vast majority of produce sourced from the Estate’s nearby organic kitchen garden and chicken coop.

    Circa 1876 is an ideal venue for private intimate weddings through to weddings up to 150 guests or 170 guests for a cocktail style event. Boasting chandeliers, large wooden beams, and rustic décor along with the original cottage, this space is magnificent to either keep as its original form or to be styled without limitations.

  • The Chapel

    Picture perfect for true romantics, The Chapel is ideal for a small, intimate wedding. Originally built in 1888, this Welsh Baptist Chapel has been lovingly restored. Although not consecrated it is an ideal setting for private wedding receptions and cocktail functions up to 40 guests.

  • Restaurant Eighty-Eight

    Restaurant Eighty-Eight is located inside the iconic Convent. The restaurant name is taken from the street address of Convent and as it is such an auspicious number it has been melded firmly into the title. Double eights symbolize infinite prosperity and happy relationships which bodes well for a restaurant set in the heart of a hotel that is the scene for so many marriage proposals and nuptials. Restaurant Eighty Eight offers French doors that open up into our Wisteria Courtyard and is an ideal venue for private intimate weddings with up to 40 guests or 60 guests for a cocktail-style event.
