The cottage is beautifully appointed and the attention to detail is just everywhere - the cottage was spotlessly clean, the bathroom and bathroom products were so luxurious and the provisions were perfect! We loved the privacy, the peace and quiet and had 3 amazing bushwalks in the area which is really...

Well we went back and found the same 5 star accommodation and attention to detail experienced last year. We had the Romance package and would suggest this to anyone staying at Somewhere...

A lovely tranquil location, Murray and David had thought of everything, tastefully decorated, very comfortable, great quality food, wine (we visited the winery cellar door to buy some more), chocolates and an amazing bathroom. Despite the high temperature and humidity the air conditioning and ceiling fans worked perfectly.

Hi pinnell41 Thank you for your generous review. We are thrilled that you had a great weekend. Summer in the country, although beautiful, can be unpredictable and you certainly endured a very warm weekend. Nonetheless, with air conditioning, excellent wine and great food, whatever is happening outside seems irrelevant! Thanks again - we look forward to welcoming you back. Murray...

Great getaway absolutely loved by my wife and I. Murray and David have thought of everything. The place is very tidy modern and private. The food and snacks are of great quality and so is the wine. We will be back for sure.

An absolutely delightful place to stay if you like the peace and quiet of birds and the wind in the gum trees. The cabin itself has everything you need.

This little hidden gem was the highlight of our Hunter Valley weekend away. It was very clean, private and very romantic. We had a package that included a breakfast hamper, a cheese and wine hamper and a BBQ dinner hamper which were all filled with delicious fresh local produce. I highly recommend staying here!
