Everything We Need
Our 5th year at this great property for our 'craft' weekend- has everything 12 mum's could need to relax. Is now our home away from home.
Fantastic family holiday in the Hunter
“The property was amazing. We loved our stay. It comfortably fit our three families and was fabulous for our get together. It had enough space, plenty of bedding, blankets and all the good stuff that makes it comfy. Honestly, we really loved this property. We even rang HVS with a query and were quickly attended to which was really great. Being located on a property with an amazing brewery really made it special.”
Wonderful wedding weekend
A perfect fit for our daughter’s wedding at Ironbark Hill. Wonderful to be on-site in such a beautiful setting. Being on-site took away some of the stress of this momentous occasion. It was lovely to be able to accommodate close family and to have the bridesmaids accommodate in the Retreat.
Great Property for Groups
Had a beautiful weekend with my family for my daughter’s wedding. Perfect location for preparation before the wedding at the Barrel Room at Ironbark Hill. Good location for wine tasting as well and accommodates 15 easily.
