We have stayed at Bluebush Estate a few times previously, all in different accommodation, and this time we stayed in The Shed. Again, we loved it! The setting, location, accommodation and hosts were just amazing, and we will most definitely be back.

While we had a most enjoyable stay, and hosts are friendly and helpful, the 3 bedroom 2 bathroom cottage accommodation is very tired and in need of a refit and restyle. Beds are comfortable and rooms spacious with ok hanging facilities. Reasonably clean but not spotless. Kitchen facilities adequate. Surrounding gardens and views from back balcony are what you expect in the Hunter Valley region. Easy access from Hunter Expressway, 2 hours from Sydney and 15 minutes drive to Cessnock and many wineries, restaurants and attractions. At price point, more luxury and modern facilities expected.

We just spent a relaxing weekend at BluebushEstate .. we stayed in the main house with each of the 5 couples having their own bedroom / en-suite which was perfect.. plenty of living areas to choose from.. open fire was perfect for cool nights..kitchen facilities were outstanding, Bbq was also a welcome addition.. Beds were very comfortable, booking process was efficient.. Linda even helped organising catering for us which was delicious! We will definitely be back!

We decided to have a family weekend, we chose the lodge and the cottage for 14, we had plenty of room, the cottage was only used for sleeping. It has a pool and tennis court. In the cottage we had a pool table as well, tv, air conditioning in some rooms. Great destination for a large family. Would certainly recommend to anyone, 4 homes on site, make a call and u will b well looked after.

We were 2 families away for a weekend stayed in the chalet it was awesome. Beautiful location, everything you could need in the kitchen, comfy beds, very clean have zero complaints throughly enjoyed our stay. The chalet is big with heaps of room for our group of 4 adults and 3 kids. The kids had a blast riding bikes down the little grass hill, watching kangaroos.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review - great to hear you had an enjoyable time. Sounds like the children really enjoyed the open space and fresh country air. So pleased you found the Chalet comfortable and roomy for your group. Hope to see you again in the near future. Cheers Linda & Steve
