This was the best property we have stayed at in the Hunter. Great property for the kids to run around, house is very cosy and inviting. The kids loved playing with the dogs. The beds are like sleeping on clouds, amazing. The owner Bernadette, was very friendly and went far and beyond to accommodate us. Will definitely be back when we go back.

“Picturesque, tranquil, unique and cosy”
Reviewed 4 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

An ideal cottage for a cosy winter stay. Beautiful curated farmhouse feel, but not short on comforts. Fab fireplace and a kitchen with modern appointments, so easy to home cater. The 2 bedrooms have comfy beds with good linen, so even with frost on the ground on chilly mornings, quite manageable. Being my first visit to the Hunter, I think the location in Broke is the prettiest. Favourite wine estate was organic Krinklewood. Only tip is that if you are self catering- to bring fresh produce with you. Nothing in the valley, masses of cheese and olives, and wine of course, but closest option at Woolworths in a dismal town about 30km away.

“Modern rustic beauty”

person found this review helpful

A charming little cottage, full of modernised rustic character. Loved the way it's been decorated and furnished, very comfortable and a home away from home, esp when the fireplace gets going. The outside space was great - perfect to enjoy a cuppa or glass of wine while watching the sunset over the distant mountains! Bernadette and Max are excellent hosts, very friendly and accommodating. We would definitely recommend it as a lovely, relaxing getaway spot.

“Heavenly weekend at Blaxlands cottage”
Reviewed 8 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Wow, Blaxlands cottage was lovely, and even better than the photos suggest. From the outside its very rustic place, but the inside is completely modern. We loved the back patio, sitting out there in the morning with our coffee provided by Bernadette was heaven! We will definitely be back for a long weekend. Cant wait to come back during winter and use the fire place :)

“Serene and relaxing”
Reviewed 2 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Had a one night stay here from Sydney. Met the owners on arrival who were warm and friendly - immediately made to feel at home. The place is spacious both inside as well as a great expansive setting and great outdoor space. Nice suprise to be welcomed by two lovely dogs as well which added to the experience. The house is really well appointed and had a great attention to detail. Only downside was having to leave...
