“Jen & Steve's place is AMAZING! From the amenities, to the decor, to the special little touches they made to make our stay comfortable (the electric blankets on the beds were very much appreciated!). It's about a 20minute drive from Pokolbin, where a lot of the wineries are. The place itself is extremely secluded! Your nearest neighbour is about 1km away. The house is modern with very stylish furnishings, and VERY spacious! We used the fireplace every night. It's also on a big property, and we brought our dogs with us. They LOVED being able to run around the property! A lot of the wineries in the area are also dog friendly which made it easier as we took them with us whenever we left the house. You might want to call the wineries you want to do tastings at and book tables to make sure you get seated and also to make sure they're dog friendly (if you have a dog with you) we missed out on a couple of wineries we wanted to try on the first day because they were completely booked out. There was 4 of us staying there (2 couples) and both couples had decent sized bedrooms and our own bathrooms/showers. The bedrooms were also on opposite sides of the house so we had some privacy. We would definitely stay at Barefoot again next time we plan a trip to the Hunter Valley. We always like to bring our dog with us when we travel, so to find a gem like Jen & Steve's that was pet friendly was a really good find! Thanks Jen & Steve!”

“The descriptions do not do this place justice. We were immediately delighted with the location, amenities and atmosphere. The pristine cottage and grounds present beautifully, were mere minutes away from the event we travelled there to attend, and a delight to retire to at the end of our days. Waking up to such charming surrounds was an especial treat. We sorely regretted not staying longer. The atmosphere, picnic hamper provided by Meredith and wines from Stomp! created the perfect setting to propose in Leap Year - he said "Yes" 😁Thrice recommended, definitely returning.”

“This place was so fun to stay in. The two bedroom cottage is like stepping back in time, with timber clad walls and cast iron on the outside. Inside was sparkling clean with all the amenities we needed as a small family. The bed was so comfy!!! Loved that. We enjoyed watching a storm roll in over the horizon on the patio outside with a could of dogs for company. Our daughter loved having her own bathroom and entry point. Really enjoyed our stay.”
