Charlestown, Australia
Reviewed 23 August 2015

Early into renovations in Charlestown and working shiftwork, I hit the wall and needed break. Had been to Bluebush previously several years before, and though it would be just what I needed. It was mid week and so only 1-2 other couples around, just the peace and quiet I needed. Super comfortable bed, great dining area with everything I needed....

Wow fantastic cottage with a very well appointed kitchen. Room enough for 5 of us to sprawl in front of the fireplace with a cheeky red. Located perfectly to access wineries markets and gardens. Thank you Bluebush Estate for a relaxing stay.

We stayed here for a weekend while checking out local vineyards for our wedding. It was absolutely beautiful, and the house was stocked with everything you could ever need. A loungeroom full of books and games, and an outdoor area with everything you could ever need for a BBQ or picnic. There was also a fully stocked station where you...

Wonderful to relax on the sunny quiet patio surrounded by the hills OR to snuggle up in front of the gas volcanic rock log fire to read a good book with a glass of Bluebush Merlot if a cloudy day. Bluebush Cottage is extremely comfortable, spotlessly clean, beautifully appointed and with everything you need in the kitchen if you want...

Toowoomba, Australia
Reviewed 18 May 2015

We only stayed one night, but the rooms and amenities were very well appointed and the owners/staff couldn't be more helpful. Very quiet area with vineyards nearby. We ate breakfast on the terrace looking at the vines and surrounding hills. They have several cottages to look after families and groups as well as some recreational activities. Good Merlot!
