The original Neudorf Farm is in a small village in Germany.
Regina spent most of her childhood holidays there with her grandparents.
Her grandfather was a Shepard and her grandma kept the house and pigs in order. The days were filled with fun and exploring the fields and barn. It is these warm holiday memories that inspired us to create a place of our own and our Hunter Valley retreat was born. ‘Neudorf’ means New Village.
It has been a long road to the finish line and we are very proud of what we have created.
We hope you enjoy your stay at Neudorf.

Normally when we travel, they go out for doing things which I can’t be a part of and am left behind. This time it was different, we all stuck around and did a lot of things at this place called NEUDORF. It sure is an amazing place, with tall trees around, a lovely cottage wrapped with green grass, a pond in the front where swimming is soooo much fun. I did not even ask for permission from my dad before jumping in every time!
I lazed around in the grass, had a million places to sniff and update my mind’s database with other folks’ DNA in the grass. There were birds, butterflies and those jumping jacks! I tried to chase them, but they just hopped away, too quick for me... Oh and those fat black thingies which appeared one morning and just stood still in the green grass. I tried to shout at them (read bark) about why and what they were doing in my domain, even though across the fence. They were unfazed till I approached one and it just came after me...and I was like...oh shucks...it moves and is biggg....run man run. Dad told me a thing or two about the fencing having something to do with territories. Ah well...
I sound like repeating myself, however I can’t stop praising this place and the people who thought of and developed this place. I heard from dad, they are Regina and Neil with Mav and Sam helping them all the way. And did I mention their son Anton who is 5 now and has been around since they started working on this place. I tell you, Anton is very lucky to have such a wonderful family."
By the way, I am Buddy, the golden Labrador who has had a wonderful life, and been to many places, and so knows what he is talking about!
On our days out, we wandered around the wonderful Hunter Valley Zoo, visited the Hunter Valley Gardens and browsed through the interesting shops at Pokolbin and Cessnock. There was time to explore the townships of Millfield and Bellbird, seeing numerous homes being built in new estates. One of our most interesting trips was when we went on a round drive via Wollombi, Broke, Pokolbin and Cessnock. The last time Doreen and I had driven on the Broke Road, many years ago, it was still unsealed. The countryside along that road is as beautiful now as I remember it back in the 1960’s/ early 70’s when I used the Broke Road as a shortcut, when driving from Tamworth to Sydney.
A highlight of our stay was going to the Community Spring Fair held at Millfield Public School, a school which has grown over the years as new families moved into the district. There were interesting displays by local groups, including Landcare, and the activities for the children were popular with a climbing wall and jumping castles. The Bushfire Brigade had the children aiming at and knocking down targets, using water hoses from their tanker. The stalls had a variety of items, with many collectibles and bargains which Robin couldn’t resist.
Our drive home to the Central Coast was via Kulnura and Mangrove Mountain where the wildflowers were starting to bloom. The displays of Gymea Lilies flowering along the roadway were spectacular, reminding us of Neudorf’s kookaburras using the 2 Lilies there as lookout towers.
Thanks Regina, Neil and Anton for allowing us to experience, once again, your beautifully maintained property, sharing it with the resident wildlife."
