The Hotel: Nightingale Wines
Boasting a picturesque location in Broke Valley of the Hunter Wine Region, Nightingale Wines is a vineyard and a hotel that welcomes guests to enjoy a peaceful stay with the views of the iconic Yellow Rock mountain. The venue is set only a short drive from Cessnock Airport and close to the local golf courses. Holidaymakers may enjoy a relaxing break amongst nature, join wine tasting experience and tuck into locally-sourced food at the on-site restaurant.
Guests can relax in a luxury spa villa, adjacent to rows of grapes grown for wines made in the vineyard. For one-night stays, guests can enjoy wine tastings from the vineyards they’re sleeping next to and then choose to either indulge in a cheeseboard or their choice of a bottle of wine. Those who wish to stay longer can enjoy both the cheeseboard and a bottle of wine, before retreating back to their own private spa in their luxury villa.

The Area: Hunter Valley
One of Australia’s premier wine-growing regions, the Hunter Valley is a landscape where rolling vineyards are surrounded by native bush and vast farmland. It’s a place where kangaroos bound across paddocks, locals enlighten tourists about hidden gems, and an abundance of charming cafés and restaurants await hungry travellers.
Hardworking visitors reward themselves by absconding the city and spending long, carefree days vineyard hopping and enjoying the sprawling bush scenery. With dozens of wineries located nearby, retreaters embark on a self-guided vino adventure or join a tour to hear from the experts.
Foodies experience a variety of fresh food, dining at one of the many cafés for lunch or quality restaurants in the evening. Cheese and chocolate fans are in their element with numerous factories scattered about, including the famous Smelly Cheese Shop. For something different, try horse riding, hot air ballooning, or take a stroll through the beautiful Hunter Valley Gardens. There are also a number of golf courses and day spas within easy reach.
