Our Story

When the deeds for Lot 1 Swan Street Morpeth became ours in 2014, we felt bestowed with not only a beautiful building, but an architectural, cultural and historic responsibility.

Built in 1822 for the honourable Mr Caleb Soul of Soul Paterson Pharmacy fame, this fabulous residence was named after Admiral Nelson the Earl of Bronte.

We refurbished the house to reflect the opulence of the pioneers who first inhabited it. We added an eclectic fusion of Victorian and Asian antiques. Each room is individually styled with unique pieces that reflect our passion for design and artisanship. Spaces created for modern travellers to enjoy rest, culture and cuisine.


Step out our front door into the history of main street Morpeth. Imagine the village as a bustling port with its historic wharf, hitching posts, cobblestones and boutique shops in 19th century buildings, including the bakehouse where the Arnott's family biscuit dynasty began. Add modern café's, restaurants, artisans and art galleries, that blend history with the present day.

Morpeth Village is in the heart of the Hunter Region and a short drive to Newcastle or Hunter Valley Wine country (35 mins), Port Stephens including Nelson Bay (45 mins) and Maitland (10 mins).

With easy access to the M1 and two hours drive from Sydney, we welcome you at The Bronte for any occasion.
