Testimonials

From the Whispering Brook guest book, what some of our guests had to say about their stay.

"My family and I have stayed at Whispering Brook on several occasions. Its serene location and proximity to exclusive label vineyards always makes for a relaxing stay. It is hard to find home-style accommodation for large families and gatherings in the Hunter. Whispering Brook made us feel cosy and comfortable, like staying in our own home. The cellar door is rustic yet elegant and we will consider using it of our next family gathering. All and all a rare find" Geoff Westwood

"We had a wonderful stay - thank you so much" Katie

"What a delight! Comfortable, relaxed, cool and a very relaxing weekend."

"Great place, quiet location, warm log fire, not to mention the port. We'll be back."

"A lovely stay in your country house - loved the rose garden."

"Roses at the door, comfortable beds, a lovely view to wake up to."

"Wonderful weekend. Great fire and great facilities."

Beautiful house and surrounds

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay-perfect for our 16 Hens. Possibly more toilet paper and tea bags provided would have been good, but we were all very comfortable and the fire made the house so cosy! Beautiful, would stay again

Great family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

8 great days under one roof! A few rainy days didn't put a damper on our family holiday. Plenty of space for 19 persons. Table tennis was very popular and the winery tour excellent. Back screen needs some attention.
