BROKE FORDWICH REGION:

Nestled on the edge of the Yengo National Park, and just two hours from Sydney and one hour from Newcastle, the Broke Fordwich area is in the centre of the Hunter Valley. In 1994 the Broke Fordwich area was the first region formally recognised as a separate viticultural sub-region of the Hunter Valley. While 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 Australian wine making. The sub-region produces some of the best quality fruit in the Hunter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a disappointment This place is suitable if all you want to do is house a large group of people. Don't let the beautiful photos fool you, none of it was real. The bunk house was not self contained, the pool was not opened or available and looked disgusting anyway (and we didn't get that information until 2 days beforehand), the dishwasher was out of action (and for 10+ people that was a real drag on the weekend) and the pool table was derelict. It was difficult to get information from or hear from Debbie and handing over $1000 cash bond made me very uncomfortable, especially when she didn't provide any information regarding how I would get it back if she so wished. My friends and I wouldn't recommend or wish this place on anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property We had a wonderful family weekend for my husbands 70th birthday. All the generations had fun. We were very comfortable in and out of the house. Lots of fun for the children riding their bikes safely and playing tennis. Thank you Debbie and Helen. Hope to have another weekend here perhaps next year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for a large group We had a brilliant time in this property! Plenty of living space for 14 guests which was exactly what we were after. Our only suggestion would be including salt & pepper, cooking oil & champagne flutes. Also only providing 1 bathmat for that many guests to shower wasn't ideal. Having said that we would all happily stay again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Property My girlfriends and I had an amazing time staying at this delightful property. It is serene and peaceful in a central location to a lot of fantastic wineries. Additionally the house is wonderful, spacious and well maintained. The beds and linen were very comfortable, and we had a great time in the pool and the spa. Deb was lovely to work with prior to and very patient and helpful with my many questions and requests.
