Cabernet and Merlot Self-Contained Cottages

Each cottage has two bedrooms, comfortably sleeping four adults, a large living room with wood burning fire plus kitchen and dining areas. The bedrooms overlook the orchard and vineyard. Our cottages have their own private patios equipped with outdoor dining tables and a BBQ.

The outdoor saltwater pool is set beside the Merlot vines. It is open to all guests to relax, and cool off during the warmer months with sun lounges and a large umbrella provided for your comfort.

McCaffrey’s Estate is walking distance to many boutique cellar doors, Restaurant Botanica, (located at Spicer’s Vineyard Estate), Ironbark Hill Brewhouse, Yellow Billy Restaurant, Enzo Weddings and Two Fat Blokes. A little further up the road are the wonderful restaurants of Muse Kitchen (Keith Tulloch’s Winery) and The Mill (Estate Tuscany) both award winning restaurants.

Hire or bring your own bike to enjoy a scenic bicycle ride along the Around Hermitage Cycleway, over 10 kilometres of dedicated cycle path. Horse riding and segway tours are also an option only a few minutes from our door. We are a short, ten minute drive to Hunter Valley Gardens, Harrigan’s Irish Pub & award winning golf courses.

Book a helicopter to collect you from our estate and tailor your own day with a wine tour, a long lunch or both! We can assist with recommendations for wine tours via helicopter, mini bus or private vehicles.

We can arrange your own picnic in the vines, let us know if this is of interest at the time of booking.

Transfers are available to and from Hunter Valley concerts at Bimbadgen Estate, Hope Estate and Roche Estate with Rover Coaches, please enquire for further details.

With an abundance of fabulous restaurants, cellar doors and wine tours to experience, we provide you with plenty of options when planning your time in the Hunter Valley.
