Loved our extended weekend in the historic refurbished Barn at Capers. Jane and Mike could not have been more helpful, especially Mike is a goldmine of information if you are keen to do some bushwalking or scenic drives. Hard to believe the Disneyland Hunter Valley winery-scape is just a few km to the north. After a hard days' walking or driving the Barn very pleasant of a late afternoon, just for reading and relaxing on the garden terrace over looking your car, which oddly enough was ok in our case!Maybe a fountain or green lawn feature by that garden terrace would enhance the effect? BBQ and simple camp kitchen with large fridge was perfect, with easy walk into town. Everything worked and spiral stairs to comfy, cosy upstairs bedroom was a bit of fun and not too vertiginous. Satellite TV channels gave us some Northern Territory commercial channel reception, a cultural adventure given NT style national news and local adverts, like"travelling" to exotic places without leaving NSW! Jane provided great local restaurant advice and even made a necessary advance booking for dinner at Paninos 5 minutes walk away, which was excellent. Highly recommended bush retreat without having to actually retreat to the bush!

Absolutely fantastic. This place is owned by a lovely couple Jane and Mike who look after you so well. The main guest house is amazing made from old convict stones from Sydney and windows and timber floors from old buildings around Sydney. It sits up on the hill and looks out over the valley. All 5 bedrooms beautifully done all with ensuites. Sitting areas just filled with charm. There is also an old cottage and Billy’s Barn also on the block. The Barn is unique originally an old timber farm shed converted into accommodation keeping all its character and furnished with amazing old pieces. Set in Wollombi itself walking distance to the local pub, cafes and restaurants this place is an absolute must stay at. Hour and a half out of Sydney a great get away. Definitely a place to return to.

What a special anniversary weekend, we stayed in the quirky Boiling Billy barn which was a delight. Super clean and comfortable with everything you could possibly need. The gardens were really beautiful and the pool lovely. The hosts could not have been more helpful, they organised restaurant bookings, supplied maps and suggested walks etc, a really nice couple very warm & welcoming, can’t wait to go back!

Along with a small group we stayed at the Guesthouse for a week. It exceeded expectations and was simply wonderful. Not only are the rooms and common areas luxurious, but the owners Jane and Michael were gracious hosts and Jane is a wonderful cook. If you are going to the Wollombi/Broke area the Guesthouse or Cottage are highly recommended.

The heritage homestead had everything we wanted and more. Everything worked well and was very comfortable. Mike and Jane could not have been more hospitable, they were so lovely whilst maintaining our privacy. The food and view were so memorable in the best way. Enjoyed our stay so much I'm looking for excuses to go back again as soon as I can.
