Here’s a hypothetical for you.
You’re looking for accommodation in the Hunter Valley for you and your friends that’s central to restaurants and cafés and walking distance to local cellar doors.
Or, perhaps you’re seeking a really picturesque stay that can accommodate you and the family for that much-needed mini break?
If either of these scenarios ring true for you, we’ve got the perfect accommodation. It’s easy to find, close to everything and affordable.
What’s more, it's situated on nothing short of 50-acres of wine country paradise. Sound good? We certainly think so.
Let me introduce you to Palmers Lane Estate, one of the Hunter Valley’s most secluded, yet central accommodation venues.
Located in the heart of Pokolbin, on the corner of McDonalds Road and Palmers Lane, Palmers Lane Estate is home to 10 rustic Lodges dotted across the pretty country landscape.
According to new owners, Guy and Sandra Fens, who purchased the property in February this year, it was the views, solitude and space that sealed the deal for them.
“We just loved the peacefulness of the property and the privacy that the Lodges offer guests. It’s the kind of place that we’d want to stay”, notes Sandra.
When you drive into Palmers Lane Estate, you’ll know what I mean. It’s absolutely huge and situated on prime wine country real estate offering lovely views of the Brokenback Range and countryside.
And the accommodation? The newly renovated three, five and six-bedroom Lodges are self-contained, rustic and complement the beautiful natural surrounds.
If right now you’re picturing a nice comfy lounge and cosy fireplace you’re in luck. Each Lodge is equipped with a combustion fireplace and plenty of pre-cut wood to burn on those cold nights.
Whether you’re sitting in front of the fire place or outside on the verandah soaking up the atmosphere, there’s certainly plenty to love about Palmers Lane Estate.
Guy tells me that a lot of return guests have been bringing their bikes with them so they can explore the grounds. It’s a great idea and one that Guy and Sandra encourage.
“We want to create a welcoming and relaxed home away from home.”
Guy continues. “Whether you’re a couple looking for a romantic escape, a group of friends looking to get away for the weekend or a family, there’s something here for everyone.”
If you do have kids, you’ll certainly appreciate the wide-open spaces for the kids to ride, play and just, be kids.
Equally, there’s plenty to enjoy for those on adults-only excursions.
Think wine and cheese style picnics and relaxed walks around the property, checking out the mountain views, pretty dams and the odd group of Kangaroos that can often be seen grazing on the Estate.
Need more convincing? Here’s a few more reasons to book your next Hunter Valley stay at Palmers Lane Estate.

Another great benefit of staying at Palmers Lane Estate is that the Palmers Lane Wine Eco Trail is right on your doorstep.
Comprising six wineries, including the newly opened Horner Wines on the neighbouring property, the Wine Eco Trail is perfect for a day’s wine tasting adventure.
You can walk it, hire a cruiser from Grapemobile Bicycle Hire conveniently located just up the road and ride it, or even drive the trail if you please.
