Very friendly and helpful owners ... and just a beautiful location and wonderful setup of the cottages. Everything needed was there, and easy to find. Very comfortable and relaxing location - perfect for a weekend away at the Hunter Valley!

Perfect for Hunter Valley break

Great central location. Short drive to lots of vineyards and can walk to a couple of bars/restaurants. Cottages are nicely decorated, well equipped, and very private with beautiful outlook, and kangaroos cone and graze every evening. And good value. We would certainly stay here again.

What a gorgeous place to stay. The owners were very lovely and accommodating. The outlook is amazing with 180 degree unfettered views of mountains and vineyards. The ammenities were very clean. The cabin is set privately away from other guests so you feel like you’re the only ones there. Would highly recommend and we will be coming back next time we are in the Hunter Valley.
