So, we travel a lot internationally, and have been to many wine regions. I will probably offend the locals but Hunter Valley is not among the most beautiful. I suggest then that you make the scenic 30 minute or so drive out the beautiful Wollombi Road after visiting a few wineries, and spend the night here! Lovely country setting. Quaint rooms. We were here on a night when dinner wasn’t offered so I can’t speak for the food. But there is an interesting dining spot less than 10 minutes drive away - Great North Trading Post. If you’re looking for boutique accommodation right in the wine area, this isn’t for you. If you want a memorable stay away from it all after some wineries, this is it!
