We had friends visiting from Canada and wanted to escape Sydney and show them the beautiful Hunter Valley and the wines on offer.
This place was perfect for our group with the well appointed kitchen, large living spaces and bathrooms.
I would definitely recommend this place to stay and will hopefully be back one day.
A wonderful house for a group of school friends on an annual weekend away. We spent most of the time around the fireplace which was perfect for enjoying good food cooked in a well stocked kitchen perfectly matched with local wines. Well located with the Broke vineyards within minutes from the house and the more well known Pokolbin vineyards only 20 minutes away. Highly recommended for a large group.
Our group of 3 adult couples has stayed in this beautiful house for a long weekend for five years in a row, and we will be back for more. It's very comfortable, well located for the numerous wineries around Broke as well as being only a short drive from Pokolbin, well fitted out with everything one needs, and perfect for relaxing and unwinding.
Bonn Abbey was a great location for a relaxing weekend, fully self contained with absolutely everything you could need. A beautiful house, and all the locals were lovely.
The advertising puts Hunter Valley as the location of this property, but in fact it is in Broke. We had a two night stay with three generations of our family. The property is a very attractive stone building with plenty of room inside. It is superbly equipped with everything you would want, and to make it even nicer we were given a complimentary bottle of wine and some coffee beans. Herb tea was also provided along with basic kitchen essentials. The open wood fire was great to sit by and sample Hunter Valley wines! Free Wifi was also available. There are dozens of vineyards all within a 20 minute drive, many of which had cafes/restaurants attached. If you are going to the Hunter Valley for a trip Bonn Abbey is a great place to stay.
Stayed at Bonn Abbey from Friday - Sunday (so only a short getaway), but we had such a lovely time, and house is just beautiful. I was originally worried Broke might be a little out from the heart of wine country, but it is only an easy 10 min drive into Lovedale/Pokolbin. There are also some wonderful wineries in the Broke area (e.g. Mount Broke Wines) that we visited on a pre organised wine tour (Hunter Valley Wine Tasting Tours). The house had everything we needed - full functioning kitchen (including oven/cooktop/plates and cutlery/platters/utensils/two fridges etc), BBQ, large living spaces including a big table on the front porch, enough bathrooms/mirrors for a bunch of girls to get ready. The bathrooms were spectacular and so spacious, one including a spa bath. There are 4 bedrooms (B1 - Queen, B2 - Queen, B3 - Queen and Single, B4 - 2 x Singles and Double sofa, and there is another single bed in another area of the house). We had 2 relaxing nights sitting inside or outside together drinking wonderful wines and cheeses sourced from the beautiful Hunter Valley - such a nice atmosphere to relax and rewind! Would recommend this property without hesitation. The complimentary wine was a lovely touch as well.
