The view of the Madigan Wine Country Cottages on arrival is very sweet. We relaxed the moment we drove through the main entrance. The property is large, with five holiday cottages, & a homestead which appeared to be permanently rented when we were staying. The five cottages are mostly well spaced for your quiet enjoyment. The "Australiana" and "Cellar Door"cottages...

We stayed in the Australiana. Some of the features/fittings are a little outdated but in general the house is beautiful, the location is amazing and our hosts were prompt and helpful with all our booking queries. We would definitely book again.

Went on a short trip with my friends and we stayed at the "Settlers" cottage. It is a 2.5 hr drive north of Sydney just past the major cellar door area of Pokolbin, but just a very short drive to the major wineries. Instructions to get there and enter the cottage were easy to follow, and delivered well in advance....

The first good sign was that on a hot day, the aircon was already on when we arrived. The comfy beds and well-equipped kitchen inspired much better breakfasts and restful sleep than you would expect given the scorching weather. This isn't some kind of palatial luxury - it feels like home! A barbie out the back, plenty of space between...

We were looking for accommodation that could also accommodate our pet greyhound. We found it at Madigans. We booked the Kookaburra Cottage and it was warm and comfortable. A little small in the living room but a nice spa bath and great outlook over the old vines from the back veranda. Nice clean bedrooms and linen. Away from the other...

We stayed as a family of four (2 adults, 2 older kids) in the Kookaburra Cottage for four days. My son was playing in a golf tournament so the proximity to Cypress Lakes served our needs well, but the cottage itself was tired and run down with poor and broken fittings and sub-standard utensils. It wasn't clear how to dispose...

Stayed here with friends on a couple of weekend retreat and found the place to be lovely and homely. There was lots of wildlife and animals around such as the horses in the paddock next door. The barn was cosy and comfortable and I would recommend this to my friends and would love to come back again.

Stayed here in the Australiana cottage for a boys golf trip. It was perfect for our needs. Plenty of room to move. Clean BBQ and outdoor setting to enjoy our meals and evening refreshments. We'd go back for sure.

John rang just ahead of checkin time to explain how to get in to our cottage as there is no reception centre on site. We loved the location which is close to all the wineries but away from the main road and all the large tourist centres. Perfect for couples like us who enjoy nature and a quiet spot to...
