We think you’re going to love this place. It’s a boutique hotel with just 10 beautifully appointed en-suite rooms brimming with vintage charm and set on an award-winning vineyard. In winter curl up on a sofa next to a real log-fire with a glass of wine. On warm days wander through French doors to sit out on the wide veranda overlooking the garden, dip into the salt-water pool, or play tennis. Sleep in the finest fresh white sheets and wake up to a seasonal breakfast basket at your door. It’s an enchanting retreat at the end of a famous little road. It’s just a short stroll to the local café and Circa 1876 restaurant. Legendary vineyards, wineries, an amazing range of restaurants, cheese and chocolate shops, world class golf courses, and the spectacular Hunter Valley Gardens, are all close by… plus Carriages Boutique Wines are on site for your drinking pleasure. COME AND STAY.

I have nothing but lovely things to say about our stay at The Carriages. My husband, our one year old and I stayed for a lovely 3 nights over New Years and we had a very relaxing, peaceful time. The rooms are lovely, very spacious and the bed was perfect for us- nice and firm.

Friendly owner. In the morning, a basket of breakfast goodies was delivered to our doorstep - very healthy & yummy. Saw bunnies hopping around at the back garden, what a pleasant surprise. Their white wine was good, very nice. More lights from carpark to room will be helpful.

I thought I had arrived in heaven. Lovely room. Comfortable and tidy. Greeted by the majestic resident goanna. A little corner of the verandah for me to sit and read quietly, eat my delicious breakfast basket and drink my coffee. Except I couldn’t use the verandah because there
