Amazing hospitality and venue. This place blew away our overseas family visitors we wanted to showcase some beautiful aussie landscape countryside and kangaroos. The cottage is so beautifully appointed and luxurious we didn't want to leave. Home away from home. Super clean. We will be back

Lovely weekend retreat.
Spacious cottage but with a cosy feel in a lovely spot with super easy check-in. We stayed two nights with family visiting from overseas. They loved the location and watching the kangaroos in the morning and evenings. Good sized kitchen for cooking meals from great local producers (everywhere in the hunter). Our visitors did use up the hotter though as they ran a few baths... bless them.

Relaxing stay where all the boxes were ticked.
We could not fault the accommodation, the friendliness of Linda and Steve or the fantastic lounge dining area with fireplace to enjoy breakfast or quiet times. Fantastic stay and we'll be back!
