“fantastic family location”
Reviewed 19 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Thank you Andrew for our fantastic stay at your Woolshed Hill Estate last week for mum's surprise 70th Birthday. Mum was just thrilled and I know it really meant so much to her and dad to be with all the families for those few days. Your property was the perfect venue to make that happen. We loved the grand residence which was the perfect escape for mum and dad, and the apartment and the homestead slept the other 18 of us very well indeed. Mum and dad enjoyed the golf course and the children loved the pool and tennis court. We also appreciated your assistance with the surprise and also our grocery delivery. thanks once again Andrew - we will certainly be recommending your place to our friends.

“Do yourself a favour”
Reviewed 15 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We had 14 of us catch up for a get together and since coming to this brilliant residence we have decided we are doing a yearly thing now - Everything you need is here.
The BBQ area is brilliant as is the pool. 14 people slept very confortable and heaps of bathrooms as well. We took up 2 of the 3 residence available and thought they we great. All 14 of us were happy and still giggling about the time we had - Saw a concert as well. Close to everything.
Thanks Andrew - We will be back - Hope we were not too loud for the other house hahah 14 women and a BBQ and Pool and music well that is a mixture for noise. The only thing is maybe we needed more toilet paper with all those ladies hahaha - Cheers

“Nice stay”
Reviewed 27 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We had a lovely stay in the apartment (there are several different accommodation types to be rented individually or as a large group). It had some character and each of the 2 bedrooms had an ensuite.
We loved the location - only 10 minutes to the centre of town but was quiet and near some great wineries like Marshes Estate.
It doesn't have air conditioning but it didn't need it - though it was very hot outside it was lovely and cool inside. All but one room had tiles and it had fans.
It was handy to have the kitchen and bbq.
It was great to have the facilities - pool and golf course.
The only negative was that though the host was friendly, it seemed there was a long list of rules that he ran through with us. It was a bit over the top.
We also had some trouble working the tv remote controller and the fan remote.

“Magic Weekend”
Reviewed 3 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We spent a wonderful weekend at Woolshed Hill Estate celebrating our joint 60th birthdays. There were 34 of us from 6 months to 86 years. Andrew made sure everything was perfect for our arrival. All agreed the beds were extremely comfortable; one couple slept so well they all but missed breakfast! Everyone enjoyed themselves playing golf,tennis, bocce or swimming in the pool. The Grand Dining Room was a beautiful setting for our party on the Saturday night. At Woolshed Hill there is so much to do or so many ways to do nothing.

“Magical place to celebrate my sister's hens weekend”

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!
