Palmers Lane Estate is your "home away from home" in the Hunter Valley Vineyards. Ideally located within minutes to the best of what the Hunter Valley has to offer including world-renowned wineries, restaurants, and activities such as hot air ballooning, helicopter rides, and wine tours. We have your accommodation sorted with privately situated, individual lodges, featuring 1 to 6 bedroom configurations. Whether you're a couple looking for a relaxing mid-week stay or thinking of having a large gathering over a weekend, we can accommodate your needs! Set on 50 acres of natural bushland, with views to the Brokenback Mountain Range, there is plenty of room to walk, ride and explore. Take a swim in the pool or have a game of tennis or just relax on the veranda, enjoying the peace and quiet and picturesque surroundings. Don't forget to bring the camera to capture some up-close shots of our locals, the wild Eastern Grey kangaroos!!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Property's Favourite Review
We would highly recommend staying in the lodges at Palmers Lane Estate in Pokolbin, Hunter Valley! A friendly greeting goes a long way to make you feel welcome and host, Guy, was just the man for that and to top it all he gave us a beautiful complimentary cheese board and bottle of wine😊 The lodges are set in a spacious tranquil landscape with kangaroos quietly grazing. Our lodge was immaculately presented with a mixture of home comforts, comfy bed, hot shower and a wood burner in the lounge should you want for an authentic lodge experience. Amongst other things we enjoyed relaxing on the veranda just soaking up the calmness and felt blessed to watch the kangaroos in such close proximity. There was also an open air pool on site and a communal seating area encompassing a camp fire. Nearby there were plenty of lovely places to eat, vineyards and wines to sample.

A peaceful stay in a beautiful setting. The cabin was very comfortable- great beds- and beautifully clean and well equipped. Waking up to kangaroos hopping by as you drink your early morning tea on the veranda is a special experience!

Amazing accommodation, great location, well appointed rooms and they have thought of everything to make it comfortable. Only downfall is i didn't spend enough time in the cottage (was attending a wedding!). Next time I’ll have to stay longer than one night — thank you so much!!

Palmers Lane Estate is a true 5 star experience. Excellent value for money, clean and comfortable cabins, beautiful scenery, heaps of fun amenities, and the BEST hospitality from the owners. There's privacy, space, a homely feel, it's close to everything, I could go on. Trust me - this is where you want to stay (book direct with them to save $$!) Highly recommend for friends, family, or couples. Can't wait to go back.

Amazing people in a family owned business. Their only goal is to make your stay as nice and comfortable as possible informing you about some genuine recommendations about the neighbourhoud including drinks, food, wine tasting, sports and nature related activities. Traveling from Belgium and highly recommended.

Palmers Lane Estate was the perfect place to celebrate my birthday with friends. We stayed in Lodge 10 (6 bedrooms) and Lodge 3 (3 bedrooms). The Lodges were well equipped and so comfortable. The wood fire was cosy and we had a ball. Some inquisitive kangaroos and lots of birdlife visit the 50 hectares of Palmers Estate. They have a newly renovated swimming pool and there is a tennis court. The estate is easy to walk and you can do a lap of the grounds in around 20 - 30 minutes. A short walk to John Wallace and Horner Wines for wine tasting then on to Dinner at Kawul which is at Calais Wines. Wifi and Bluetooth reception is good too. Sandra and Guy are great hosts and went the extra mile to make our stay so memorable. Fabulous weekend! Will definitely return.

3 nights wasn't enough! From the moment we got there we were impressed- Offered a free bottle of local wine (given 3 options), incredible cheese platter on arrival and a cute little sign in our cabin welcoming us. We had stayed there about 5 years ago before the renovations and I can say I am absolutely blown away by the difference and its all positives. All the rooms were bright and fresh but also had dark thick block out curtains to keep everything toasty warm in winter. In the loungeroom, the couches were comfy, the fireplace was perfect, the throw blankets were so soft and cuddly. The kitchen was my only issue and it was a very first world problem- the light was WAY too bright so literally the only improvements I could have wanted was a smaller light and a shelf above the splashback because there wasn't many places to put all our condiments, fruit, snacks, supplies etc. Everything else was perfect even on the day it was torrential rain, the office had a good selection of boardgames to keep my kids off devices so this place is a winner. Sadly, a family member passed away a week before we were supposed to stay at Palmers Lane and we contacted Guy with only 3 days notice to see if I could change the booking dates as we would be at the funeral and he was incredibly accomodating and understanding of the situation and didn't even charge us anything extra to amend the booking so I cannot speak highly enough about this place in all aspects. It was a great stay.
