Starline Alpacas Farmstay Resort
Reviewed 17 April 2014

What a fantastic place for the family. Comfortable fully self contained cabins with gorgeous views over the paddocks. The Alpacas are adorable and there are lots of them to feed. Lots of other farm animals, chickens and birds and friendly dogs. Just two little complaints - new pillows would be good maybe take your own and the spa wasn't very warm. Very tiny complaints in an otherwise just delightful stay. Take the kids away from the computers and get them into the paddocks to experience a little bit of farm life!

This farmstay is great for adults and for children. Easy strolls around the property with stunning views and animal watching. A short drive to Broke village and local cafes and restaurants. Spacious sandstone cottages are comfortable with a covered deck good for alpaca watching. Feeding the goats, piglets, alpacas and collecting eggs is great fun. The cottages are clean, comfortable, have cooking facilities and are inexpensive but a bit dated and some repairs and updating would help. Other styles of accommodation on site appear to be much newer. A lovely place to stay if you want a peaceful weekend.

I must say, a farmstay is not something I'd normally go out of my way for, but I'm converted. We stayed in a stockyard suite and inside it was so clean and modern, with a lot of thought having gone into little details. It was split level with a big king bed that we could lie in to look at the huge TV or out to the alpacas. At one stage I could see more than 30 alpacas quite close up as I sat and ate at the dining table. Kitchen was well equipped and the giant shower in the modern bathroom was fantastic. Stepping outside the room and the squealing pigs and very friendly and excited goats really kept us amused.
As a couple, we went for a concert and wine, but enjoyed so much more! We didn't have time to make use of the pool and spa, but will save that for next time when we hope to stay longer.

Room Tip: If you're a city type couple, go for a stockyard suite. I think rooms 1 and 3 have extra light a...

Thanks for your review - we are so happy you enjoyed your stay! We love the stockyard suites too! They are surprisingly modern inside and have great interaction with the animals. Hope to see you again! Kelly & Jeff

Perfect location for a relaxing getaway. Our cottage was clean, modern, well equipped with comfortable beds. Interaction with animals was great. Being able to collect fresh eggs for breakfast was a real treat. Facilities are numerous, pool, tennis, spa, sauna & bbq areas. All the staff were very friendly including Amy the cleaner who was willing to stop & chat.

The new managers, Jeff & Kelly along with there sons were extremely friendly and welcoming. Even though they were busy making many changes to the property, they were always willing to stop & chat & made us feel like part of the family. In fact we were only meant to stay 5 nights but extended it to 8 nights because we were having such a great time.

Will definately be a place we will return to.

Let me start by saying Geoff & Kelly were amazing, they were so kind & friendly & on hand if we needed them anytime. We stayed in the 'Lucy Cottage' & it was great, full of that country charm with something extra special with in the house. The cottage was set back from the more modern cottages on the water but that was good as it allowed us to walk down & visit all the animals on our way to the pool or the tennis court. Never in my life did I ever think I would hand feed Alpacas or sit on the balcony & share some carrots & celery with the most friendliest goats around. The pool area was really nice I only wished we were their longer so we could take full advantage of the BBQ area.
I cant wait to return but with the whole family so they too can experience this wonderful place.

We have just returned to Sydney after a long weekend stay at the Starline resort. We have 2 young children and looked at a number of options before deciding to stay with the Alpacas in Broke.
It may have been more luck than judgement, but we feel we landed at the perfect farmstay! The Farm is under new management Geoff and Kelly who were absolutely wonderful hosts.
We stayed in a waterview cottage which was beautiful, modern, spotless and very well catered for a young family. Beautiful deck, swing chairs, BBQ and wildlife everywhere you turn.
In addition the swimming pool, tennis courts and Jacuzzi were an absolute added bonus which the kids loved.
In 2 days we fed the Alpacas, goats, chickens, ducks and pigs. It really was a holiday filled with activities from the minute we arrived until the very minute we left.
All this and only 20 minutes away from the heart of the Hunter.
Without a doubt we will return to Starline at the first opportunity. If you are considerering a stay, book and enjoy all that this wonderful farm has to offer...

Room Tip: Water cottages were lovely and also safe for kids. Cottage D was the last in a row so extra privacy...

Our two nights with the alpacas was really enjoyable. This was a great option for a young family in the Hunter Valley. The alpacas and warm swimming pool provided long hours of entertainment for our 5 year old daughter. It is well located near lovely restaurants and attractions. Sasha's cottage was spacious, clean and well air conditioned. The amenities provided were more than enough for a short stay.
