We chose HHC for a recent visit to the Hunter because it was pet friendly and looked perfect for what we were after - some space and privacy. It didn't disappoint. Fab stay! Already planning a return!

My family & I stayed here for 2 nights and thought that the cabin was comfortable & well equipped with all that you would need for a family...air conditioning, fireplace, 2 bedrooms, tv, full kitchen. We stayed with my baby and the kitchen had everything we needed. We stayed in summer, but this place would be lovely in winter as... More

We were looking for accommodation in the Hunter Valley for a family that wasn't at a resort. We found the accommodation what we expected and really enjoyed the "away from it all" feel. The girls really liked the kangaroos that were about as well as the other wildlife. Still was located close enough to all of the wineries to make... More

Booked the Hideaway Cottage for a girls weekend to the Hunter Valley. Finding accommodation that sleeps 6 on a budget was a first challenge, which is what brought us here. Very secluded, very rustic - may or may not suit everyone. One large bedroom had a queen sized bed whist the other room had two sets of bunks that swayed... More

We stayed here on a Saturday night and loved the late checkout on Sundays 12pm, the cabins are spaced out so you feel secluded without feeling isolated. There are several curios locals (kangaroos) who like to check out their temporary neighbours from a distance. They come and feed and dusk and dawn and get quite close to the cabins its... More

Hunter Hideaway Cottages is my favorite accommodation in the Hunter Valley. This is because you get your own private cabin surrounded by nothing but bush and kangaroos! Yet it's close to Pokolbin and most things the Hunter has to offer. I love having my own kitchen and the kids get space to run around, be noisy and messy and enjoy... More

Hi Ben, It was a pleasure to accommodate you and your family once again. Glad you enjoyed your stay at the cottages and pleased that the kangaroos entertained your children.

My family and I booked the hunter hideaway for a weekend (Chardonnay cabin), and when we arrived I took one look at the milk crate (that I believe may be doubling as a table) and started to worry. After scanning the cabin, the ripped furniture and the shockingly small shower, we decided to leave. We didn't even get a refund..... More

I enjoyed our stay a lot. Accommodations are basic. But you have tons of space. There are kangaroos around a lot (which was great for the kids). Plus, i made a mistake with dates. The owner, Paul, was good about it and didn't make me pay more. I really appreciated that. I would recommend to anyone.
