Cabernet & Merlot Self-Contained Cottages

There are two cottages onsite. Our Cabernet Cottage is set behind the Cabernet Sauvignon vines, and our Merlot Cottage overlooks the Merlot vines. 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 vineyard. Our cottages have their own private patios equipped with outdoor dining tables and a BBQ.

Our outdoor saltwater pool has views of the Merlot vines. It is open during the warmer months and has sun lounges and a large umbrella for your comfort.

Hunter Valley Recommendations

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 short drive along the road will bring you to two award-winning restaurants, the lovely Muse Kitchen which is located at Keith Tulloch’s winery,  and The Mill, located at Estate Tuscany. Both are highly recommended.

Hire or bring your own bike to enjoy a scenic bicycle ride along the Around Hermitage Cycleway, over 10 kilometres of dedicated cycle path. For the more adventurous you may enjoy horse riding or a segway tour and the kids can get up close to the animals at Hunter Farm Adventure Centre, all located here on Hermitage Road. 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.

If you are attending a concert here in the Hunter Valley we can assist with contact details for Rover Coaches. They operate a transfer service to and from Bimbadgen Estate, Hope Estate and Roche Estate for the larger concerts and the buses will pick you up from our location.

We are very happy to assist with recommendations for restaurants, cellar doors and wine tours when planning your time in the Hunter Valley.
