Family-friendly holiday home in Pokolbin with hot tub
Over looking one of the best views in Pokolbin, Il Capannone is equipped with a full kitchen, which means there won’t be any restrictions on the menu! Cook up the family favourite and enjoy a delicious meal, or lounge outside under cover by the fire pit roaring up the BBQ with one of the great drops you picked up earlier in the day!

Sharing a street with wineries such as Hanging Tree wines, Iron Gate Estate, Mt Pleasant, Drayton's Family Wines, and Mira Wines you will be over the moon with the quality of wines available so close by! If you're up for a winery tour there are plenty of options even a tour on horseback within walking distance. It's central location allows you to enjoy the quiet, relaxing afternoons the region provides.

The fun doesn’t stop there, because of its great rural location there is plenty of beautiful wildlife that frequent this spot and its surrounds! Make sure say hi to Minnie, Pluto and Donald the resident donkeys!

5/5 Excellent

Highly Recommend
Great communication, easy check in, perfect location and private. We really enjoyed our 2 nights in the Hunter staying at Il Cappannone. It was so close to everything which made it really easy with the kids. Highly recommend to family and friends.
Stayed 2 nights in Sep 2021

5/5 Excellent

Perfect stay!
Loved our stay. Exceptionally clean and well appointed. The view, fire pit and hot tub was the best! Would highly recommend.

5/5 Excellent

Easy and Relaxing
We'd originally booked for July, yet COVID-19 restrictions making things problematic. Daniella made rebooking for another date totally hassle free. From the day of arrival, it was attention-to-detail and the little kindnesses that made the whole stay easy, relaxing and comfortable after a very stressful few months for all of us. Thank you so very much for having us. We look forward to returning another time. I'd definitely recommend this place.
