Place is secluded and very private. Enjoyed our stay just relaxing after a day of wine tasting. Paul is very helpful and communicative. Will definitely come back. Highly recommended!

Beds

Location: It was a bush location close to the vineyards of the Hunter so it was fine for what we wanted to do.
The description of the beds was inaccurate. On asking for clearer descriptions we found that 4 twin beds actually meant 2 queens and a sofa bed which did not suit us so we chose a cottage with 2 queens and 2 single beds however, the 2 single beds turned out to be bunks which for a group of women in our 60s was a challenge. Otherwise it is comfortable clean budget accommodation and it that is what you want then I would recommend it.

Hi Sadie, thanks for letting me know about the Expedia bedding descriptions. It appear when Expedia purchased from Wotif another internet booking sites the bedding list were altered. I am now in the process of changing to the correct bedding for each of the 4 cottages. Hermitage cottage that we changed your group too was the best configuration available at Hunter Hideaways for 4 single ladies in your age group. Regards Paul.

Relaxation and fun

This was my 4th visit to hunter hideaway cottages since 2013 and it remains as a favourite holiday destination. The cottage was clean, tidy and had everything that we needed. Plenty of kitchen stuff and enjoyed the new couch and new bed spreads. The cottages are lovely and rustic and that's what we loved. No need for Internet or foxtel when your in such a gorgeous environment.We spent most of our time outdoors and enjoyed sitting on the balcony with the sun streaming in and in the evening sitting around the camp fire. Plenty of seating available. My sons loved gathering sticks to build the camp fire and did not watch one minute of tv as they were so busy playing outside. We enjoyed walking in the paddocks and spotting kangaroos. We went to snow time in the gardens which was great and visited Audrey . Wilkson. The pet shop in Braxton was amazing with loads of birds, fish along with piglets, puppies and guinea pigs in pens that you could pat. I hesitated when making this review as I feel this place is so very special and undiscovered! I don't want to miss out in the future! Thank you to Paul for giving my family the opportunity to experience a lovely few days of fun and exploring. We will be back and can't wait!
