The Cooperage is beautifully located on the Kelman Vineyards Estate. This is a working Vineyard and the Vines are all around you as you enter. Not too far from most of the other Wineries in the Hunter Valley, it makes a quiet drive from Cellar Door to Shops or attraction peaceful.
Consisting of 4 rooms with The Retreat (where we stayed) seperate from everybody else. This was a self-contained room with it's own kitchen and 2 double-beds. The only drawback to it's location above a working garage is that it can get a little noisy. The decor was an eclectic mix but mostly Scandinavian inspired with plenty of wood everywhere. It was a bit tired though, with plenty of scuff marks on the kitchen benches and exposed wiring (not live?) in several places (incl. the shower!) Being sited above the garage and constructed entirely of wood means that a quiet trip to the toilet in the middle of the night (or anywhere, anytime) is out of the question.
The meals served at breakfast (incl. in the price) are amazing and almost make up for any drawbacks that you could find. Gay & Warren are fantastic and willing to accomodate you in any way possible, definitely going above and beyond the call. They have plenty of advice and recommendations for attractions and Wine & Food and if they say go to Mojo's for dinner... GO!
All in all a great little place to stay for a weekend.
