“Leave your stress behind”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Mews at Lavender Ridge. There is no tv reception and phone reception is a bit sketchy but this did not bother us one bit as we wanted to unplug for the weekend and spend some real quality time together for our wedding anniversary. The Estate is beautiful, the property is well looked after and very neat, tidy and clean. The Mews is close to Margan and Nightingale winery's/restaurants but most other things are probably at least a 20min drive away but for us this was reflected in the price of the booking and we felt that we really did get value for our money. My advise to others would be to bring some dvd's or books/magazines if you would like a wide selection of things to watch and read (several dvd's and books are available). There is a tennis court so bring your tennis gear if you play. We left feeling more rested and relaxed than we have in a long time. We would def recommend this to other couples who would like to get away from it all for a while.

Thank you for your review and sorry to hear that you were not happy with your stay at The Mews. In response to your comments, breakfast provisions are not advertised as an inclusion and The Mews has been a fully self contained studio for approximately 5 years now. Also, the TV is advertised as DVD only due to poor TV reception at the property.

“Great way to relax in the Hunter”
Reviewed 1 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

The property was a self contained apartment above some garages, it was large, had good cooking / food preparation area for breakfast and lunch, it was quiet and separated from other guests in other accommodation on the property. Broke is well located for visiting vineyards in the Hunter Valley. Note that Broke has limited shops so bring your essentials with you or buy any specific needs in one of the major centres nearby.

On this occasion we were guests at a wedding at Margan Estate Wines, a smaller but well presented winery that catered for 120 guests. They have great wines and are only 5 minutes down the road.

If you get a chance, also visit Mount Broke wines, a small but friendly establishment with a great Shiraz. Also very close.

Liked best: The property was on a boutique winery called Lavender Ridge, there was a gift bottle for us on arrival, we are yet to taste it but it was a nice feature.
Liked least: The shower cold water tap fell off every time ewe used it, luckily our toes managed to dodge it.

“Gorgeous”
Reviewed 23 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

One word for the Mews studio Lavender Ridge Vineyard "Gorgeous" ! Well three words really Gorgeous, Peaceful, Luxury. Stayed for long weekend and wished we could have stayed longer. Great location just far enough out of main wine country to be completely peaceful but still close. Vineyard is beautiful, extremely well kept, the studio was spotless and had everything you could ever need. Loved our stay.

“Worthy of high reviews”
Reviewed 3 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Stayed in december - january 15/16.
Has all the mod cons needed for a short stay. Consists of a loft type arrangement above a garage as per the photos.
The owner lives on the site but keeps a respectful distance.
The location is approx 10 km from the major vineyards and about 6 km from the general store so a car is essential.
The studio is very much open plan build, with the exception of the bathroom.
It appears to be something of a hobby farm with cattle and vineyards which adds to the country feel.
+ve - include solitude, on site lake, scenery etc etc
-ve - the loft could use more curtains to block out more of the 6 a.m. Daylight. This has been mentioned previously so I expect they already know but have not acted as yet and probably won't. Housekkeping on our arrival needed more attention, dirty windows, cobwebs inside etc
Couple of other minor problems were attended to on same day, no problems.

Would I recommend a stay?
