Peaceful stay in the Hunter

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at Silky Oak Cottage and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Close to all that the Vineyards have to offer and in a peaceful location. Would definitely recommend.

Rural heaven

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about this gorgeous cottage - the roaring log fires at night, sipping coffee on the wrap-around verandah in the early morning sunshine, feeding apples & carrots to horses on a neighbouring property and the balance of peace and tranquility with the allure of good food and wine in the Hunter Valley.

There was plenty of room for our 3 generations celebrating Grandpa's birthday and apartment-bound grandson LOVED such space to kick balls, fly frisbees & kites and just sit in the dirt picking up stones. The cottage is very well set up with everything you could possibly need and the BBQ area is a standout.

Cosy!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at Silky Oak Cottage - very cosy! We loved feeding the friendly horses and enjoyed a big breaky in the outside BBQ area. Would suggest hooking up wifi at the property. Thanks for having us!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

This property is truely perfect. Set in huge beautiful grounds, the property is like little house on the prairie/old world aussie cottage- with a great location in the heart of the Hunter Valley.

The cottage is well furnished, clean & gorgeous, with plenty of room and amenities for 8 people. There are two areas to cook- a well equipped kitchen & an outside BBQ area. There are also plenty of places to chill out around the cottage, the veranda goes completely around the building, with seats all around, plus the grounds are huge with plenty of space to run around/explore.

This is actually my favourite property that I've stayed in the whole of Australia! We went on a girls weekend to get away from the city, it would also be great for a family get away.

My only advice for any potential guests: stock up on food & drink before you arrive, once you're here you won't want to leave! Also, make sure you bring salt, pepper, tin foil, cooking oil, washing up liquid, cloths, sponges etc- while the kitchen is very well equipped with cooking equipment it doesn't have a basic pantry.
