The Carriages stay was just what my wife n I needed, a log fire, luxury bed and home comforts. The property offers relaxation and a swimming pool/tennis court. Highly recommend in such a convenient spot to the Hunter Winery region. Thanks for a lovely stay

The Carriages is set in the lovely Hunter Valley, we stayed in a comfortable sized room for 2 people and enjoyed our hamper containing our breakfast which we ate on the beautiful wrap-a-round verandah. The owners were very helpful and polite.
