The Heritage listed Brokenback Homestead is one of Pokolbin's finest residences. Brokenback Homestead is set on 110 acres in the historic Oakvale Winery with breathtaking views of the Brokenback Ranges and rolling vineyards. It is perfectly located on Broke road, surrounded by multiple cellar doors, in one of Pokolbin's best locations.
The spacious Homestead is the perfect getaway for family and friends with five generous bedrooms, three bathrooms (two with ensuites) and gourmet kitchen which adjoins the large Tuscan style dining and lounge room. There is one King size bedroom with ensuite attached, three queen bedrooms, one with an ensuite and one bedroom with three single beds. The Homestead is fully self contained with linen supplied.
Relax with a glass of Hunter wine on one of three beautiful outdoor settings overlooking the vineyard, or inside in the massive open plan entertainment wing which includes a huge open sandstone fireplace, 40 foot high cathedral ceilings, HD LCD with FOXTEL and a restaurant sized gourmet kitchen.
The big draw card and what everyone loves is the massive outdoor circular sandstone fire pit where you can enjoy and soak up the Hunter atmosphere for hours with friends and family.
If you prefer some privacy, four of the five bedrooms have their own verandahs, each with their own unique vista of the property. The bedrooms are situated in a separate part of the homestead, suitably distanced from the entertainment areas.
Perfect for wedding accommodation or just to reunite with family and friends. Brokenback Homestead is a mere 150 metres from the Oakvale Wines Cellar Door, and less than 5 minutes from the centre of Pokolbin, the Hunter Valley Gardens, wineries, restaurants and championship golf courses.
Events may be held at this property on application only and subject to additional fees & charges dependant on size and type of event - please enquire for more information.
For families with small children, the homestead is equipped with port-a-cot, highchair and plastic cups and plates.

All reservations operate under a strict No-Party & excessive noise policy as this property is in a residential area. Failure to comply can put the security bond into jeopardy.
Prior to arrival, Weekenda will require you to sign an electronic guest registration prior to arrival which will ask for ID (drivers licence or passport), list your guests with contact phone or email for Government Covid reporting, and to re-accept the Weekenda T&C's. Access Codes are only released to registered guests.
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. This is particularly helpful for things like Hunter Valley Concert cancellations or medical emergencies for which we don't provide refunds and which fall under our standard cancellation terms irrespective of the reason. We suggest reviewing policies with 'Cover-More', 'Travel Insurance Direct' & 'INSUREANDGO'.
Please also note that we may have installed a WIFI security camera at the front entrance of the property. We are progressively rolling these out through every property in 2022.
We look forward to having you stay with us.
