On their peaceful land with beautiful birds and a occasionally hopping kangaroo, Ken and Chris have created one of the nicest spots on earth. Waking-up with Chris breakfast muffins, one of worlds best, is a real joy. This is a place we...

My husband and I couldn't have picked a better place to stay in the Hunter for our 30th anniversary getaway. Our cottage, one of two set on beautiful, sprawling acreage, had every comfort for our three-night stay and the location was great for nearby restaurants, a craft brewery and cellar doors. We were warmly welcomed by Chris and Ken,the owners,...
