The Carriages Country House brochure invites you to "stay somewhere magical" and indeed we did!
The location of the two separate guest houses is down a pretty winding road surrounded by the vineyards and blue hills as a backdrop.
With a glowing fireplace in our plush room, views across the gardens and she-oak forest, we enjoyed the glorious shiraz - grown right on the property!
It is certainly a small and intimate boutique hotel run by a lovely young family. Their service was excellent. They were charming, friendly and entertaining hosts with great recommendations for what we could enjoy locally.
The beauty of the property is that the owner's family home and reception is quite separate from the guest houses, so you really do feel like you have privacy and peace away from it all.
The room was immaculate, spacious and beautifully decorated. Breakfast hampers were delivered to our door each morning to be enjoyed at our leisure. It was such a relaxing stay.
We would highly recommend The Carriages Country House for couples wanting a romantic retreat in the Hunter Valley! And the Shiraz is wonderful!
