Fantastic place for a group getaway with young families

  • 5 of 5

For about 8 years, a group of uni friends and their families, now in our early 40s, get together somewhere around the lower Hunter for a weekend away and this was the pick of the bunch. Such a comfortable drive from Sydney and Newcastle. Ideal for families with young kids there is a separate kids entertainment area, all 6 bedrooms are equal in size and amenity and the cubby house, pool, creek and cows were of great interest to the kids. Everything is well presented in and outside the grand old house and the setting is peaceful. We will definitely be back!

Amazing teambuilding

  • 5 of 5

What can I say, we wanted to have a team building night away and link it to our quarterly meeting. The house catered for all, with amazing large seating areas and the beds were to die for. Definitely looking at hiring for next time we do a couple of nights away.
