Description

The Monkey Place Farm Cottage was originally built as a returned serviceman's grant from the Boer War and as such is just shy of 100 years old. The farm was once a small dairy but is now a part of Fordwich Estate, a 100 acre working vineyard which has produced several trophy winning wines.

The working vineyard also boasts a 9 hole golf course which was designed and built by Merv Hayward from Cypress Lakes. The course was recently featured in Australian Golf Digest magazine and was titled "a dream backyard" and the course is yours for your private use as a guest.

This lovely cottage has been newly refurbished with all the creature comforts including ducted air-conditioning and under floor heating. The beautiful kitchen has top of the range modern appliances which all foodies will appreciate. It has 2 stylish large comfortable bedrooms and a external stand alone air-conditioned bedroom (without bathroom and toilet) 5 metres from the main cottage. We also have a queen sofa bed available in the lounge if preferred. It has a chef's gourmet kitchen/dining room and a lovely lounge area . The bathroom has a huge bath and shower and there is a separate large utility room with extra toilet.

The lounge room still has the original fireplace intact so enjoy the open fire on those cold evenings in winter. A large timber deck wraps itself around all sides of this lovely cottage and overlooks the vineyard with spectacular views, ideal for a leisurely breakfast or a BBQ. Enjoy a game of golf on your own course or just practice your swing.

Monkey Place Farm is perfect for a small family or a group of up 6 guests.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning cottage, superbly renovated, situated in an idyllic, peaceful setting on the vineyard with lovely views of the mountains. A great Hunter Valley vineyard experience, without the brashness and crowds of Pokolbin, but close to lovely wineries and restaurants. Five star experience for a three star price.Nightingales was sensational for dinner, lovely setting and food, great host. Oishii was first class as usual, my favourite Japanese outside Japan. Joy flight over the Hunter from Cessnock Airport was a great experience and excellent value.We���ll definitely be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our stay was amazing, the cottage was the perfect setting for a relaxing weekend, I will definitely be heading back soon!! The kicker was the fact that we got exclusive, unlimited use of the golf course! (the standout by far for all the group!) The one thing I would suggest would be if you could install a spa on the deck I would have been in heaven!! (jokes!!) Your booking, check in and check out process was seamless and stress free. Once again thanks for a wonderful weekend!!!
