We offer boutique accommodation with an Australian character, but most importantly offering privacy, seclusion, and everything for a true escape for a romantic getaway, a wine appreciation weekend or a break from the city. Enjoy plenty of Australian flora, fauna and landscape. You will find us among the vineyards and olive groves on Hermitage Road, Pokolbin in Hunter Valley Wine Country.

For maximum privacy, our five cottages are situated well apart over 25 acres and they are screened by natural vegetation or situated to take advantage of the views. This makes it a truly special escape for one or two couples. Intimate walks among whispering casuarinas. In summer, a glass of wine beside the saltwater swimming pool or in the gazebo while playing petanque. Sharpen up your short game at our all-weather golf chipping/putting green complete with a couple of sand traps. Marvel at the spectacular sunsets and clear, romantic starry skies…. relax in your own spa bath,  or in winter just curl up fireside.

With so many 5 star cellar doors and wineries, fine dining and great cafes, a deli, cheese making, galleries, horse riding and open space, Hermitage Road is a great destination and the good news is that we are 30 minutes closer to Sydney with the completion of the Hunter Expressway in March 2014. Our guests can stay on 110 kmh expressway conditions from the northern suburbs of Sydney all the way to within a few kms of Hermitage Road and at the same time avoid some infamous local roads. It also puts us less than 40 minutes to the beach..

Our gift vouchers are ideal for any special occasion or to show appreciation to family, friends, staff or maybe even the boss.

“Not one huge ant-pile of a hotel – but small houses hidden from one another, each a private estate, where people could meet or not, as they pleased… a resort for people who enjoyed their own presence well enough and sought only a place where they would be left free to enjoy it”.

– Ayn Rand, ‘The Fountainhead’
