The perfect escape at any time of the year. The houses are about 80 meters apart and screened for you privacy. Set on 25 private acres only minutes to great restaurants and wedding venues such as Margans, Nightingales and the town of Broke.

Where we are

Around a two hour journey from Sydney and 90 minutes from Newcastle the Broke Fordwich area is in the southwest corner of the mid Hunter Valley. Sitting between Pokolbin and Wollombi, Broke played a critical role in the development and history of NSW.

Next door to boutique vineyards and near the olive farms of Broke , 15-20 minutes to the heart or Pokolbin for the best wine tasting and restaurants in NSW and for the golf enthusiasts, two of the best and most challenging golf courses in Australia (the Vintage and Cypress Lakes). Near great Wedding Venues.

Broke Village stands at the base of the Brokenback and Hunter Ranges on the Wollombi Brook. The massive Yellow Rock escarpment stands guard above. The Ranges shelter Broke Fordwich from much of the rainfall that surrounding districts receive. The area has a sandy loam with river flat alluvial soil, volcanic soil and pockets of red basalt giving wine producers a variety of soil types known as terra rossa.

Today Broke Fordwich is still making history. In 1994 it was the first area formally recognised as a separate viticulture. Whilst historically, it is one of the oldest wine growing areas in Australia, it is only in the last 30 years that Broke Fordwich has started to become an important player in the Australian industry.

Today, more than a quarter of the Hunters wine grape production now comes from the area and Broke Fordwich wines are winning more than their fair share of national and international awards.

Importantly, Broke Fordwich retains its integrity as a rural community remaining free of large scale development yet offering first class B&B and self catering accommodation, restaurants and activities. Visitors to the area are surprised by the amount of wildlife they see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic place to stay We stayed at the house for a 70th birthday girls weekend with ages from 30's - 70's. OMG it was perfect the house and has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing stay you only need to take your self and you food and wine, the kitchen was fully equipped with everything you could possibly need , the beds were very comfy, the house is very well set out with enough room for everyone, the garden is beautiful and we arrived to fresh cut roses in each room. Would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing getaway , we booked a wine tour that picked us up at the house and dropped us back. Will definitely be back to stay

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing A group of us recently went for a weekend away to The Hunter Valley and stayed at the Hunter Moon Country House. Colette the owner had arranged a package where we received 2 nights accommodation, a private chef (Mottys Cuisine) that made us a home cooked BBQ dinner on the Friday night and a 3 course home cooked meal on the Saturday night and a wine tour for the 8 of us on the Saturday. We had the most amazing time. The house was stunning, the bedrooms were a fantastic size and the facilities were great. The chef (Melissa) and the food was absolutely fabulous and the wine tour company was very friendly and accommodating to the wineries that we wanted to go to. We would defiantly recommend this place to anyone heading to The Hunter for a weekend away. 5 stars all the way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect 40th bash The photos on the net do not do this place justice. The house was amazing. It was the perfect getaway for 12 ladies to help celebrate a 40th birthday and the house just worked so well. The little extra touches and added comforts made it so much more enjoyable. We did one of the organised wine tours and had Melissa from Mottys Farm Cuisine come in and cook us dinner one of the nights. Both were fantastic and great ideas. I can highly recommend it and we will definitely return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would go back in a heartbeat First up, I would like to say that the photos provided above do not to this lush property enough justice. Not only is the property a beauty in itself but the location is by far one of the most picturesque I have ever seen. Over the Anzac Day long weekend a big group of us hired both the Hunter Moon & Cicada properties for some well deserved down time and what a down time it was - whether you're looking to spend the entire weekend in a spa, sitting in front of the TV playing Xbox, reading a book in the green, relaxing in a top-shelf massage chair or just having a great time with mates, this place has it all. In addition, if you're keen to go check out a few wineries, both these properties are located in the heart of it all, whilst still feeling so far away from reality. I would go back to both Hunter Moon & Cicada in a heart beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect house in Broke Hunter Moon in Broke is the ideal weekend house that has everything you could possibly need. We hired it for a girls weekend and it did not disappoint. The pictures and description online do not do it justice as it not only met our expectations - it exceeded them. We would definitely stay there again. The owners are also extremely helpful with their wealth of local knowledge and great suggestions to eat and taste wines. 10 out of 10!
