Visitor Comments

I wish more of these gardens were small dog on a leash friendly.

Well worth the visit. Owners were so willing to share their insights as well as their joy. A delight to be so close to home in the Hunter Valley. An easy stroll for those who are not still in their prime if you get my meaning.....

A 400km round trip from Sydney yesterday and it was well worth it to see this immaculate garden. Hedges galore, roses and jasmine delight the senses, around every corner there is another amazing view of the lake and delightful garden rooms. Morpeth is close by for lunch and retail therapy.
