The Carriages stay was just what my wife n I needed, a log fire, luxury bed and home comforts. The property offers relaxation and a swimming pool/tennis court. Highly recommend in such a convenient spot to the Hunter Winery region. Thanks for a lovely stay

The bed was awful. So hard it was like sleeping on the floor. The couch is also very saggy. The bathroom was old.

The location is beautiful and the hosts are so welcoming & lovely. It is a guest house so you are connected directly to your Neighbour’s. It was enjoyable for us but just to say, your Neighbour’s are important!
