Overview
More
Whispering Brook is located amongst the natural beauty of the Broke area, and is a boutique, family owned winemaking business developed by Susan Frazier and Adam Bell to turn a passion into reality - making premium wines. Red wines are produced from the highly prized terra rossa soils on the property - whilst the sandy loam soils located near the Wollombi Brook are ideal for producing premium white wines. Whispering Brook also features accommodation for 10-18 guests. The house is set in a vineyard and olive grove and is fully equipped including an outdoor entertaining area with BBQ, open fireplace and wood heater, reverse cycle air-conditioning, linen, washing machine, table tennis and games room. Whispering Brook Guesthouse is open year round and offers its guests the opportunity to enjoy the tranquillity of a country house amongst beautiful cottage gardens surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. Unwind with a walk through the extensive cottage gardens complete with fresh herbs to complement that special dish should you feel in the mood for cooking. Alternatively, choose from a superb selection of restaurants and a range of activities in the famous Hunter Valley. Either way, a memorable escape is assured!
