Speaking of spot, the place is spotlessly clean and friendly, speaking of friendly, the hosts will make you feel like family, adding flowers they picked and wine in the fridge and having the aircon running when you get there. Great place, great people. Enjoy your stay. We did.

Christine and Richards place is such a lovely little oasis! Perfect for some private space time . The bed super comfy, the shower hot and strong. A convenient little kit here with everything you could need for some simple breaky and snack prep.

Christine and Richard’s place is lovely. This is the second time we’ve stayed here. Very clean, close to the main road of Pokolbin. It’s a fantastic place, very comfortable and peaceful with beautiful landscape setting. It has everything you need for a short break. I loved hearing the birds chirping and off course their beautiful thoroughbred horse buddy. It’s our place to stay when we’re at the hunter! I highly recommend Christine’s and Richards cottage!… and they are fantastic hosts! Very warm and hospitable.” – Katherine

Thanks for the warm welcome, providing us with privacy and the nice farewell. Perfect interaction.” – Warren

“Chris and Richard were amazing hosts, such beautiful friendly people and check in was a breeze. The cabin was super cute and furnished beautifully. It had everything we needed with a super comfy bed. The property itself is lovely and has a fountain and horses. It is only a 2 min walk to Potters Brewery and and close to all the attractions in the Hunter Valley. I would 100% recommend his property.” – Kelly and Julie

“A very lovely, cozy, clean and well presented cottage that is very close to the wineries. Christine and Richard were lovely hosts, friendly and hospitable. The cottage was perfect location for us… 10 minutes to the wineries in Broke and Hermitage Rds (they offered to drive and pick us up too!). The cottage is off the main road but far enough from the road noise. I loved hearing the birds chirping and the leaves on the trees as the wind blows them. I loved Christine’s finishing touches in the room, the decor, the fresh flowers and the little chocolates she’s provided… They have 3 lovely little friendly dogs and an ex-thoroughbred who is just so gorgeous to look at and pat. I would definitely recommend for couples!… and will stay here again.” – Katherine

“Everything was great honestly, very clean and neat! I feel like the photos don’t do it justice!! Suggestion would only be maybe the addition of a brighter table lamp – just to create a bit more vibe! But that is such a minor minor detail. We loved our stay and the pretty garden!!! and will be back if around the area again!! Thanks again 🙂 have a great weekend.

“Amazing hospitality, close to everything. Very friendly and offer great advice for the surrounding area. Great place to base yourself from when exploring the wineries. Thanks again for your great hospitality. Would definitely love to come back up soon when we need more wine! :-)” – Benjamin
