About This Venue
Squire’s Vineyard is a luxury rural estate offering classic Hampton’s styling with a relaxed country feel. Set on 100 private, picturesque acres of rolling fields, vineyards and dams it provides the perfect backdrop for your destination wedding.
Bordered by Polkobin and Rothbury, Squire’s Vineyard is located in the Sweetwater area of Belford and is perfectly placed to offer peace and quite alongside stunning scenery, A stones throw from some of the best vineyards, restaurants and attractions the Hunter Valley has to offer, as a Wedding Venue it is well supported by plenty of neighbouring properties offering additional accommodation for couples or larger groups so other guests can be close to the venue.
For Weddings and Events, the property must be hired on an exclusive use basis. This encompasses hire of both the Guest House and adjoining function areas.
Accommodating groups of up to 14, the Guest House evokes style and serenity with commanding views to our boutique vineyard. The property is ideally suited to a group of up to 10 adults and 4 children. Whilst it can sleep 14 adults it would be in shared rooms. With 4-5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, separate Living Pavilion with kitchen, dining and lounge and dual courtyards, the property provides the perfect base for the wedding party or family and friends of the bride and groom to stay together in complete comfort. Breakfast provisions, a welcome cheese platter and some complimentary wine from our vineyard are included as part of the accommodation fee of $1,250 per night plus GST ($2500 plus GST for minimum 2-night stay).
FUNCTIONS & EVENT SPACES
The Great Room at Squire’s Vineyard offers a stunning interior with soaring ceilings, wainscot panelled walls, large wood burning fireplace and picturesque views through elegant french doors to the vineyards. A rather spectacular room when dressed for a Wedding, it can accommodate up to 100 people seated or 150 cocktail style.
The Great Room is available for a minimum 2 day hire in conjunction with the accommodation to provide you with exclusive use of the property. Packages for the Great Room start at a minimum $5,000 plus GST with furniture included for up to 60 guests. Additional guests are charged at a rate of $50 pp plus GST. These fees are in addition to the accommodation hire cost and an additional security deposit will be required.
A wedding for 60 people would therefore be $5,500 function fee (includes all furniture for ceremony and reception with all set up and clean up included) plus $2,750 accommodation fee – a total of $8,250 including GST for the wedding and accommodation for up to 14 people for 2 nights.
A wedding for 100 people would be as above, plus a further $55 a head (inclusive of GST), so $55 x 40 people = $2,200 + $8,250 = $10,450 inclusive of GST. This gets you the venue for 2 nights plus accommodation for up to 14 people for 2 nights, plus furniture for the ceremony and reception and all the set up and clean up.

The Great Room Hire includes hire of additional adjoining spaces including a large deck overlooking the vineyard for afternoon sunset drinks and our plantation style alfresco sunroom which opens onto the deck with bi-fold windows and can be set up as an intimate cocktail lounge. The Great Room is fully insulated and has ducted reverse cycle air conditioning plus a huge fireplace making the room ideal for functions all year round.
From December this year we will also have upgraded our systems and will have new powder rooms. This means we will no longer require separate hire of portaloos.

Owner / Manager
Natalie and her husband Andrew live on the 100 acre property with their two daughters and 2 Golden Retrievers. Inspired by their travels throughout some of the world’s most beautiful vineyard areas, they decided on a tree change to the Hunter a little over 3 years ago and have not looked back.
Their philosophy is to give guests the space and privacy they are looking for, yet be available if any assistance is required. When hiring just the Guest Accommodation, they live onsite in the attached barn conversion which has separate access from the accommodation. The layout of the accommodation has been designed to allow guests privacy even in the outdoor spaces. They are at hand, only if you have any need for them.
When Squire’s Vineyard is booked on an exclusive use basis for a Wedding, the family vacate the property to nearby Branxton. During the actual function and for set up and clean up, at least one of them will remain on site for logistical purposes to ensure the property runs smoothly for the duration of the event.
