We planned a girls' weekend in the Hunter Valley and booked one of The Grange's 2 bedroom cottages. It was absolutely lovely, each bedroom had a separate bathroom and there was an open kitchen-dining-living area with a big table, 2 comfy sofas and lots of light. The cottage was very clean and well-kept, sheets, towels etc. all provided as well as a cook-your-own breakfast with eggs and bacon, toast, oj, yummy fruit salad, coffee, tea, milk - all you need - as well as beautiful home-grown roses in a small vase. We had both a front porch and a barbeque area out the back, so plenty of outside space. We enjoyed the good location in the valley but even more the parkland and just generally being out of the city in such a pretty location. We also had car trouble going up from Sydney and can't praise our hosts enough for the very generous and uncomplicated help!! We will definitely be backand hope to be greeted again not only by Chris and Ken but also their very friendly and well-behaved lab Xena!
PS: We went on an all-day trip with the Hunter Valley Boutique Wine Tours and can clearly recommend them, as well - our guide Brian was very knowledgeable but at the same time nicely low-key and picked some special wineries for us.
