A perfect calm and relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Colette cottage has such a homely feel, everything you need is there - especially a warm fire! The best part is the location, so serene and quiet (very relaxing) but right near all the vineyards. A bonus was having Worthington's vineyard just minutes walk away (great wine, coffee and service).

Good location in Pokolbin

  • 4 of 5

Located centrally in Pokolbin. Nice 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom house with all the day to day amenities provided. Bedrooms were too bright in the mornings so it's hard to sleep in. Also the house is not very secluded with a neighbouring family house within earshot. There's a river/dam close by so mosquitos were a real problem both outside at night and inside the house despite the flyscreens. Still we enjoyed our stay and had a fantastic time at the Hunter Valley.

Owner's Response: Thanks for being our guest and for taking the time to provide us with your feedback - greatly appreciated. We are sorry that you found the curtained bedrooms bright in the morning and the house not as secluded as desired. The property's nearest neighbours are around 200 metres from the cottage on this rural acreage and rather hidden behind established gardens. The property does have fly screens so sorry if you had a problem with mosquitos however, being a rural property, we would expect a few in the evenings especially if the doors were left open and lights on. Lovely to know that you did enjoyed your stay and had a fantastic time in the Hunter. We of course would welcome you back as our guests anytime, Hunter Valley Stays.

Collette Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Collette Cottage is extremely comfy & homely like a home away from home, everything is very clean & tastefully decorated. We couldn't ask for a more perfect place for our weekend away especially when its so close to Bimbadgen Winery and so many other great wineries in the Hunter Valley. This is our second stay there & we will definitely be back for another wonderful stay at Collette Cottage.

Peace and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful little cottage ideally placed in a serene setting to get away and spend time in the Hunter Valley. From the log fire at night to the kangaroos hopping past in the morning, it was such a relaxing and enjoyable stay.
