Blaxlands is located in possibly the very best location in the Hunter. Just behind Blaxlands Restaurant on Broke Road and across the road from Hope Estate, so yes definitely a super short walk to Hope and yes you will be one of around 20 people in the Hunter @ a Hope Estate or Roche Estate event that evening - that can walk home - amongst the thousands that attend that come via bus, car and other.
Blaxlands has had a mini makeover recently which included newish furniture and a new kitchen but has original, presentable bathrooms.
Did we mention that it has WIFI, a pool and open fireplace?!
It has a nice undercover outdoor area at the rear and swimming pool. The front of the house has another casual area with beautiful vineyard filtered views to Broke Road.
Other nearby facilities include Pokolbin Village (General Store, EXP and Fawk Foods Restaurant etc). Lisa McGuigans Cellar Door, Pokolbin Distillery, and Roche Estate is only 900m up the hill with cellar door and restaurants. In the other direction is Circa restaurant for fancy eating and Muse Restaurant (2 Hats) a little further afield down Broke Road.

As always, but ever so more due to recent times, we strongly encourage any holiday reservations to obtain a 3rd party Domestic Travel Insurance Policy to cover you for all manners of matters which may restrict travel.

We suggest reviewing policies with 'Cover-More', 'Travel Insurance Direct' & 'INSUREANDGO'..
Please note this property is monitored by external surveillance cameras installed for the safety & protection of the property and all guests. All security cameras are strategically positioned so as not to interfere with the peaceful possession of our guests or their privacy.
