Blaxlands Homestead located in possibly the very best location in the Hunter with walk to everythi

Holiday home with private pool, near Roche Estate
Blaxlands is located in possibly the very best location in the Hunter. Just behind Blaxlands Restaurant on Broke Road and across the road from Hope Estate, so yes definitely a super short walk to Hope and yes you will be one of around 20 people in the Hunter @ a Hope Estate or Roche Estate event that evening - that can walk home - amongst the thousands that attend that come via bus, car and other.

Blaxlands has had a mini makeover recently which included newish furniture and a new kitchen but has original, presentable bathrooms.

Did we mention that it has Wifi, a pool and open fireplace?!

It has a nice undercover outdoor area at the rear and swimming pool. The front of the house has another casual area with vineyard filtered views to Broke Road.

Other nearby facilities include Pokolbin Village (General Store, EXP and Fawk Foods Restaurant etc). Lisa McGuigans Cellar Door, Pokolbin Distillery, and Roche Estate is only 900m up the hill with cellar door and restaurants. In the other direction is Circa restaurant for fancy eating and Muse Restaurant (2 Hats) a little further afield down Broke Road.

The Minimum Booking price is based on up to 10 guests. Any guests above this number are chargeable on a per person/per night rate. The system will automatically calculate the correct rate when you enter in the required number of guests. Any guest number reductions are non-refundable.

Bedding wise we have 3 x Queen Beds and 4 x Singles in 5 bedrooms.
There are also 2 x Single trundles that can be made up for 11th and 12th guests

Pools: If the property has a Swimming Pool then it will be open for swimming for the September NSW School Holidays and closed and Winterised immediately after the NSW Easter School Holidays has completed.

Fires and Firewood : If the property has a Wood fireplace or Firepit then firewood will be provided after the NSW Easter School Holidays up to before the NSW September School Holidays has commenced.

Guest Registration : Before guests are able to access the property, we will require an online ID check (scan drivers license) and also a visual Credit Check (scan credit card). The names on the ID and CC must match the name of the guest.

This process is consistent and similar to what Hotels require for for ID prior to allowing access to a room.

Please also note that we may have installed a Wifi security camera at the front entrance of the property. We are progressively rolling these out through every property in 2021.

5/5 Excellent

Weekend family getaway - 85th birthday celebration
Property is extremely well presented and in an ideal central Pokolbin location. There is an excellent restaurant (Blaxlands Inn) within walking distance and is highly recommended with quality food and service. Property is advertised as 6 bedroom (12 guests) however there is only 5 bedrooms (10 guests). Additional bedding can be arranged if required (was no problem) with single trundle beds placed in two of the larger bedrooms. Living areas are very spacious which made for a very enjoyable and relaxing weekend.

5/5 Excellent

Excellent location, lovely management
Honestly do not want to say how great this property is and would rather it be kept secret! We were incredibly impressed and could not have asked for a more attentive host. Peter looked after us and is a wonderful advocate for the property and the Hunter area. Blaxland Homestead will be our groups choice whenever visiting the area.

4/5 Good

Blaxsland homestead
The bbq was dirty and caught fire we cleaned it before use and the grill still caught fire. The oven was dirty so didn’t use it. The house was amazing but needs some work done and needs refreshing. Great location and very large pool was great.
