We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Thistle Hill Guest House. Carol & Jackie were friendly hosts, providing great recommendations on both the best wineries & must try cafes / restaurants. Their amazing breakfasts are home cooked, creative and delicious, especially the roasted pears with cinnamon sugar. A wonderful home from home in the Hunter! P.S. Remember to give... More

Lavender Cottage - adjacent to Thistle Hill Guest House is a gem. The interior decor and its nick-nacks are a visual delight with comfortable lounges and a dining table that comfortably seats 8. Outdoor tables and chairs are plentiful on the verandah, under the trees or by the pond. The gardens are beautifully maintained and create great vistas from the... More

Words can't really describe how amazing this place is. Tranquil, peaceful retreat full of lots of extras. Beautifully appointed rooms, breakfasts to die for - you won't want to leave! The grounds are immaculate and provide opportunities for walking and the welcoming cheese platter and bottle of wine was a special touch.

Breakfast is included in the tariff and and it is just as impressive as everything else. Jacquie and Carol made us feel both welcome and at home and seem... More
