Todd and Jeff have created a beautiful resort. A hidden gem in Hunter Valley. We stayed for a night in Guest House. It was meticulously decorated to give a complete sense of a quality home. We were greeted with breakfast basket, juices, milk and yummy baked biscuits. I must get the recipe from them!! The 3 bedroom house was fully furnished with rustic feel and excellent for family cooking and bbq. The toiletries were excellent quality. We have tonnes of music CDs, DVDs, books and board games. More importantly, the kangaroos are everywhere in the morning and evening. At pitch dark night, we could see the stars and Milky Way. We had a great family bonding time and we will definitely visit again for longer stays.
My husband & I spent 3 nights at Belford Block Eight (Barrington cabin), & were so very impressed! The cabin presents as very well thought out/ designed & decorated. The whole place definitely exudes a warm & welcoming vibe. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this location to anyone visiting the Hunter, & look forwards to staying again in the future!

My fiancée and I staid 2 nights at Block Eight and from the first step we put on Todd & Jeff’s grounds we were amazed. We were amazed by their attention to detail in the cottage, they immaculate selection of food & wine provided as well as the love they both put into their property.
We loved every second of our stay, went for our daily walks, enjoyed a breakfast on the veranda, dined with a BBQ overlooking the kangaroos and especially loved the animals (the goats and especially Helga - the little pig). Their wines and especially their oil is divine!! Thank you very much guys for making our stay so memorable! We will be back very soon ; )
My wife my kids and I loved our stay at the Farm house. Since then my wife and I have stayed at two of the cabins. It is our favourite place to stay in the Hunter for a short stay. Each morning and night we would regularly see mobs of kangaroos moving around the property. There is also heaps of bird life around the dams. I am looking out at a pair of black swans, couple of geese and tons of others birdlife as I write this. What I love about each of these properties is their cleanliness, great decorating and careful attention to details. The interior decorating is exceptional. The breakfasts included are a wonderful bonus too. The bacon, home grown eggs, cereal, cookies and milk are all high quality. If you want a place to unwind with great atmosphere in a natural environment, close to all the Hunter Valley/Pokolbin amenities, then Block Eight is highly recommended.
My partner & I stayed here for my birthday, this was our first visit to the Hunter Valley & Belford Block Eight went above & beyond expectations. From the perfect location surrounded by acres of land and wildlife to the self contained boutique villas that were beautifully furnished and stocked with everything you could need, our villa was spotless and we had a perfect nights sleep on the comfortable bed. The owners have thought of everything from the complimentary wine, cheese & other goodies to the stocked up fire wood and coffee machine. Thank you Todd & Jeff for a perfect weekend. We will certainly be back & would recommend Belford Block Eight to anyone thinking of staying at the Hunter Valley.
