Serendipity on Allyn is nestled in the Upper Hunter Valley, in the rolling hills of Dungog Shire, less than an hour from the vineyards of the Hunter.

Visitors can tour the local historic townships, taste the wine, play golf and visit the World Heritage listed Barrington Tops.

 

 Serendipity is also a fabulous retreat for artists and keen photographers to indulge their passions. 

Dungog is home to a vibrant, growing artistic community & the area has a number of interesting galleries to discover.

The architecture of the local townships & the many historic timber bridges, offer unique opportunities to capture a look into the area's past. 

 

Each room has a information folder of local places of interest and local activities for your perusal. 

Nonetheless below are a few website links to help you plan your drive here or perhaps a day trip whilst staying at Serendipity.
