Welcome to the Hunter Valley's best kept secret hideaway.

The Close is tucked away in Morpeth NSW, a historic river port crowded with character on a tree-lined stretch of the Hunter River. The Close is named after the founder of Morpeth, Lieutenant Edward Charles Close, who selected a property of 1,000 hectares in the town and developed it as a river port between 1831 and 1841. Queens Wharf, as it was named, was to become a heavily frequented river port until around 1890.

The Close was built in the 1850's and has been beautifully renovated with a modern twist to provide the perfect getaway.
