Location, Location, Location

Block Eight is situated at the northern top of the Hunter Valley wine region - affording you close proximity to the Hunter's main attractions (we are a ten minute drive to Hope Estate, Bimbadgen, Tempus Two and all the major wineries) yet set on a pristine bush location you'll feel miles away from the usual hustle and bustle of the Hunter.

Block Eight is 100 acres and consists of 15 acres of vineyard, 10 acres of olive groves, two enormous dams plus natural bushland - it's our little piece of country paradise home to scores of kangaroos and other wildlife.

About Todd Alexander

I'm Todd, a former eBay executive who left Sydney life to start my own vineyard and accommodation business with my partner. I'm also the author of 11 books and love sharing our beautiful corner of the Hunter Valley with visitors.

Todd Alexander purchased this villa in 2012

Why Todd Alexander chose Belford

We searched for three years to find the ideal property - it had to be quiet and secluded, beautiful and peaceful, full of nature and yet within 10 - 15 minutes of the best places in the Hunter Valley. Block Eight had everything we wished for and more, including three dams, breathtaking mountain views, an existing olive grove and vineyard.

What makes this villa unique

When you come to our property you will feel like you're at home. Each villa is private and self-contained and has been designed with your comfort as our main priority. We offer unobtrusive service but are always here if you need anything - and you get to enjoy our single vineyard wines, olive oil and visit with our resident pets: Winston & Wesley (goats), Helga (pig), and our chooks, ducks and peafowl. Plus our property is a permanent home for scores of kangaroos, wallabies, galahs, cockatoos and you might even see goanna, pelicans and swans at certain times of the year.

Luxury with all the details!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was absolutely perfect. Probably the best place we have stayed in Australia. Our hosts nailed all the details which made staying at Block Eight super luxurious and special. Our hosts gave us all the privacy we wanted, but were moments away if we ever needed anything. The property itself is a distance from the rest of the world, but the seclusion is part of what makes it so great. Highly highly recommend.

Pure Serenity

  • 5 of 5

Barrington View Villa is a perfect escape from the busy everyday life in the city. The property exceeded our expectations and although we did not personally met our host, their hospitality is par excellence. Everything we needed was provided during our stay. Thank you very much and we look forward to staying in this awesome place again.

We had a wonderful stay at this property. The hosts provided a quality product from a wonderful breakfast, a welcoming cheese plate with wine, home baked cookies along with high end property inclusions ie toiletries, linens etc.

Highly recommended.

I'm in love with this place <3

  • 5 of 5

Me and my partner Loved this place to bits. We love going on weekends away and we like trying different places all the time and It's extremely hard to find a place you are satisfied with 100%. We were 150% satisfied in that case and received a lot more than what we expected. The place is super super super clean better than any 5 stars hotel I been to (and i been to many). The place looks amazing and there is nothing you will find missing there, from board games, dvd's, free wifi and any kitchen utensils you can think off. We also loved all the complimentary food and wine we had. The cheese platter was to die for and Block eight own wine is not bad at all (sorry not a wine expert so can't really judge), Oh and these fresh eggs from their own chickens are amazing, and all these Bacon. We had way too much Bacon.

Only 1 thing I would suggest is putting blinds on the doors in Living room to give that little extra privacy to whoever needs it.

Thanks to Todd & Jeff for an amazing experience, You guys are way too generous.

See you soon for sure.

WOW! Loved the Barrington view villa - a excellent space to base yourself while visiting the Hunter. Completely private, stylish throughout & so comfortable we found it hard to leave the Block Eight Shiraz & fire to take a spa. We were quite envious of Todd & Jeff's slice of paradise & I'm sure you will be too after a little wander around the beautiful property. Very impressed, will be visiting again for sure...Oh & when you stop past the supermarket on the way in remember what Todd mentioned in the email about supplying breakfast, it's true & amazing, keep driving.
