“Todd and Jeff’s place is just perfect. From the beautifully and cleverly built lodges, to the well loved animals and the stunning views and well stocked fireplace. Just breath taking and a chance to breath. Every inch of this place is well thought through with care and a great attention to detail. The wonderful afternoon treat and beautiful breakfast provided was very much appreciated and thoroughly enjoyed. Walking through their property was an amazing start to the day and meeting Helga, Rodney and co was one of my personal highlights, we definitely enjoyed our stroll with the fury family Our wine tasting experience was very enjoyable and Todd provided us with a great experience and an insight into their journey with their wine We would highly recommend block 8 as a getaway. We are incredibly lucky to have stumbled across this beautiful place. Thank you to them both.”
Amelies is a unique romantic self contained cottage with stunning views of the Hunter Valley vineyards below. Perched on Pokolbin Mountain the cottage is private and secluded, yet 5 minutes to world class wineries, restaurants and golf courses. Enjoy a break from the everyday hustle and bustle relaxing in the spa bath (with a view!) or listening to the birds sing in the private courtyard.
“This is a truly wonderful place for a retreat. We'd come all the way from NZ, seeking a spot to base some wine touring from, and this one stood out for the promise of its amazing setting. It rained the entire time we were there so we didn't get the stunning sunrise and sunset... yet it didn't matter as the rain was fun for other reasons.. the kangaroos shaking themselves like wet dogs... the gleaming green of freshly washed forest - and being able to fill the amazing spa bath without feeling guilty (the cottage is rainwater fed) - the bath has a spectacular view down the valley and is large enough to 'swallow' two people. The bed was generously sized and very comfortable and we absolutely loved the wrought iron Juliet balcony with its drop-away views. Amelie's is reminiscent of a Tuscan villa on a Tuscan hillside (if you ignore the roos and gums :) ) and is a very healing place to be. No wifi... and hope Sally keeps in that way... if you need some R&R within easy driving reach of some spectacular wineries, then this is your place.”

“The house is fantastic, just as described and plenty of space for a big group. The amenities were great and with the huge kitchen we loved cooking in every night. The area is beautiful and the house is located close to all the wineries. Edwina and Matt were incredibly friendly and responsive - we would definitely stay again and recommend this property to anybody looking for a secluded, stunning property still within close proximity to everything the hunter has to offer.”
