Having travelled extensively it was so pleasing to find a location that embraced you on arrival and you think about continually when you left. Arrive, unwind and explore. Situated in the vineyards of the Hunter Valley you are within stones throw of most of the great restaurants, if travelling in peak times or weekend prebook your dinner bookings. No restaurants...

We had a fantastic time away at Bracken Ridge Villas. We stayed in the Bonavista (villa 2) which was perfect. Big spa bath, log fire, comfortable bed, great location! Would definitely recommend! Thanks so much for having us - we will be back.

We came to the Hunter for a Stones concert and obtaining accomodation was very difficult even though we booked 6 months in advance.

The place is lovely, the location perfect, the privacy appreciated. Within a 20 minute drive of the major wineries of the Hunter Valley, you can't get much better than this. The only problems we had was that our room wasn't cleaned on arrival - we were persuaded to drive off for a bit while they cleaned it (we got a...

A perfect 2 day stay which included a complimentary bottle of Sweetwater wine, along with a continental breakfast hamper including eggs, bacon, croissants and orange juice. We couldn't ask for more. The furnishing is comfortable with linen provided, together with television, DVD and CD player and of course the almost obligatory log fire, BBQ and local kangaroos. In addition, the...
