Fernances Creek Farm is one hour north of Sydney (from Wahroonga) in the picturesque Wollombi Valley. Ten minutes from Laguna with the Watagan Mountains and Yengo National Park on our doorstep. Hunter Valley vineyards start with us, with the main Broke and Pokolbin vineyards 45 minutes away. Our farmstay is a Haflinger Horse stud, with show jumping and eventing facilities. Great for couples and families.
“Paul is such a warm and welcoming host! We were late on our arrival, almost close to 10pm. Yet he waited up for us to make sure that we arrive safely at his lovely clubhouse. Before that, he wrote to give us updated directions to the clubhouse as well by checking the instructions on Google Maps, which otherwise would have led us on a much longer journey that will take 1-2 hours more due to road closures as precaution from the recent bush fire as well as inaccuracies with Google Maps (haven't we all experienced that?). In addition, due to the recent bush fires, I have wrote to Paul before our booking to check on the weather conditions as we were worried that given the clubhouse doesn't have air-conditioning, it may be too hot to stay there. Paul assured us that should we have made the booking but conditions aren't conducive for stay, he'd gladly refund the the booking to us. I think that gives great assurance to anyone looking to stay at Paul's. Oh, from the pictures Paul has posted, you may think that there is no proper bed in the clubhouse. Do not worry, Paul has set up the sofa bed as a permanent bed. Only thing though is the mattress is a little springy but we adjusted pretty easily. Lastly, Paul's clubhouse is simply a lovely charming place to stay at. It is a really self-contained little house. As city folks, we really loved dining at the balcony/porch with the vineyards to the left and horses to the right. We also appreciated the reclinable chairs at the balcony, which we brought out during night time to admire the star-filled sky that you'll never see in the light-polluted city. Very very highly recommended! Thank you Paul for your warm hospitality. We would love to return to your clubhouse again should we come back to Hunter Valley in the future. Cheers!”

“Looking for a secluded get away, where you can relax and focus on spending a great time with your fellow travellers? Look no further! Ben's place is perfect. The house has all the amenities you need and a lot more (with nice touches making it all the more comfortable and pleasant). You couldn't get a more relaxing view in the morning when you open the curtains or the door. A perfect place to spend quality time with friends or family.”
Locally known as Didyabringyagrogalong (colloquial for "have you been to the wineries yet?") this little piece of heaven nestled on 38 acres near Wollombi in NSW's Hunter Valley, is perfect for couples, families or that girlies weekend away.

“Karen and Stephen's place exceeded my expectations. It's in a great part of Laguna, close to amenities, but once you get to the property you feel like you're in your own private world. The house is gorgeous and comfortable, and really well stocked with everything you need, including books, games and plenty to watch on TV, if you can drag yourself away from staring at the fire. Responses were quick, and directions for check-in were very clear. Can't wait to go back again soon!”
