“Magical place to celebrate my sister's hens weekend”
Reviewed 24 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

people found this review helpful

We stayed here on the weekend celebrating my sisters hen's night with 19 other women. We managed to have the apartment, the homestead and the cottage. What a fabulous place, it was close to everything and had everything we needed to make us comfortable. What I was impressed the most was when Andrew took the time to come and say hello and to make sure we had everything we needed to make our weekend perfect. Great service with a personal touch. Thank you Andrew. The pool was the best place to be in with the 40+ degrees we had on the weekend. The accommodation was clean and well presented. Would not hesitate to recommend that's for sure. I will return in the near future whether it be the winter or summer as both seasons are well accommodated for with the fire places in the main living room and master bedroom and air conditioning.

“Fabulous venue for Mum's 90th Celebrations”
Reviewed 14 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

A couple of weeks ago our family spent the weekend at Woolshed Hill Estate to celebrate Mum's 90th Birthday. Having grown up in the Hunter, and Mum living in Lake Macquarie, we all travelled from far and wide to be part of the celebrations. We stayed in the Homestead and The Cottage and it was absolutely perfect for our large group whose ages ranged from 2 years to 93! There was ample space both inside and out. Everything from all the bedrooms and bathrooms, the huge kitchen, the outdoor BBQ area, the swimming pool, tennis court and golf course all made for a great weekend. The kids amused themselves outside all weekend! As well there were tennis challenges and golf games for everyone. Andrew, our host was very welcoming and helpful right from my first contact. The best suggestion was to have Mum's party lunch catered for at the property so everyone could relax, and no-one had to rush to go anywhere. We self-catered our dinners and breakfasts, and so enjoyed a very relaxing weekend. Our unhurried departure on Sunday to visit the vineyards on the way home finished off a wonderful weekend. Mum was blown away!! Andrew, we will definitely be returning for another visit! Thankyou!!

“Magic! Close to everything. Really Fun!”
Reviewed 12 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

We just spent the best weekend at The Woolshed Hill Estate. It is such a beautiful place and everything we wanted to see and do seemed only 5 minutes away. We were with a large group so the accommodation was perfect. There are 4 seperate residences and all of them have ample space, a full chef's kitchen in each which was awesome! There was a lot of spare linen which was great because there were a lot of us and it was a really authentic tasteful country theme. Bec and Andy (our hosts) were fantastic. They were incredibly accommodating and knew so much about the Hunter and surrounding areas. They even organised a wonderful wine tasting for all of us at Keith Tulloch wines (incredible) and had a personal chef come to the residence and cook us lunch which was devine! It was hot so the pool really came in handy and we had a really fun time playing tennis on the court next to the outdoor BBQ area (which is right next to the kitchen - handy)! Because there is so much space we never felt cramped or in each others way and it allowed all of us to talk and mingle and even played "singstar" on the TV which was hilarious especially after all the wine we drank! It was an amazing holiday and one I will not soon forget. We will definitely be back! Thanks Bec and Andy! Wonderful!

“Relaxing”
Reviewed 9 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

person found this review helpful

We stayed there for a wedding and it was great. We had the downstairs apartment, and if you're not a fan of the heat and staying in the warmer months, grab this one. "The Apartment" is almost underground, i.e. is like a cave and has natural airconditioning. We had a couple of days of 35 degrees and inside was around 23.

The house upstairs is stunning if you feel like lashing out a bit.

“Intimate getaway with ample entertainment!”
Reviewed 28 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

The Woolshed estate is the perfect place to get away with friends or extended family. There is a 9 hole golf course, swimming pool, tennis court, countless bedrooms & bathrooms & great entertaining areas. Very family friendly & super private. Would be great for parties of 50-100 (weddings, 21st, 50th). I will be fighting for a NYE week long booking for all of our friends!!!

“The wow factor stay”
Reviewed 28 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

I can,t speak highly enough of the owner Andrew,who made our stay just perfect,"thank you". We needed a place big enough to accommodate our very large family for a special surprise 50 th Birthday and The Woolshed Hill Estate delivered just that. It had the Wow factor as soon as we drove in, then from every window and glass door in all the buildings the Wow factor continued. Andrew suggested a chef "Ben, from Monkey Catering",who came onto the Estate and cooked a beautiful dinner for us on the Saturday night, which was just wonderful. We were all very sad to leave on the Sunday, but we are already planning another Family get together, this time it will be a Christmas gathering so we can utilise the pool. The guys loved playing golf,as did the little boys.We have all taken such wonderful memories of our stay,thank you thank you thank you .Jane

“Secret Haven”
Reviewed 5 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

This was our 3rd stay at 'The Hill' and as usual we returned home with many great memories shared during our stay. I don't know of any other place where you have exclusive use of a golf course, tennis court, pool and grounds. We were fortunate enough this time around to have the whole estate to ourselves as we were a large group. We will definitely be returning for another stay.
