Espley’s Old Sawmill
Espley’s Old Sawmill is an amazingly unique, quaint and beautiful venue located amongst the Watagan Mountains in Martinsville, NSW. This rural 5-acre property is located in a prime position just 45 minutes’ drive to the west from the celebrated Hunter Valley; Lake Macquarie, is just 15 minutes to the east. Espley’s is an easy hour’s drive up the M1 freeway from Wahroonga (Sydney); 45 minutes south of Newcastle, and half an hour’s drive from the Central Coast.
The history of Espley’s dates back to the late 1800’s when it was founded as a steam-powered sawmill. The venue is still home to much of the original workmanship, which gives this place an intimate, warm feeling. There is a level grassy area which can accommodate a large marquee if required.
Tanya and Paul Crawford are the owners and were the first couple to be married at Espley’s Old Sawmill in 2012. Matthew Voigt manages the Espley’s Old Sawmill and personally hosts most events at Espley’s and treats all guests as his personal own.
H&H would be honoured to cater your next event at Espley’s… any excuse to get out to this old gem!
