“Todd and Jeff’s place is just perfect. From the beautifully and cleverly built lodges, to the well loved animals and the stunning views and well stocked fireplace. Just breath taking and a chance to breath. Every inch of this place is well thought through with care and a great attention to detail. The wonderful afternoon treat and beautiful breakfast provided was very much appreciated and thoroughly enjoyed. Walking through their property was an amazing start to the day and meeting Helga, Rodney and co was one of my personal highlights, we definitely enjoyed our stroll with the fury family Our wine tasting experience was very enjoyable and Todd provided us with a great experience and an insight into their journey with their wine We would highly recommend block 8 as a getaway. We are incredibly lucky to have stumbled across this beautiful place. Thank you to them both.”

“Where to begin!? We kicked off our Australia holiday in Hunter Valley for a weekend. It rained and poured the first two days, but the location and the views were just as magical as they were when the sun came out our final morning. The studio was stocked with tea, bread and jam, which made our slow mornings easy! There were a handful of movies that came in handy when we brought dinner back to get out of the crazy weather. The studio is so close to several lovely wineries. The pups on property were adorable and friendly! The recommendations provided were all phenomenal and the short hike to the lookout was perfect! Could not get enough of this place! It was wonderful! Amelie was very responsive too! We'll be back! :)”
Amelies is a unique romantic self contained cottage with stunning views of the Hunter Valley vineyards below. Perched on Pokolbin Mountain the cottage is private and secluded, yet 5 minutes to world class wineries, restaurants and golf courses. Enjoy a break from the everyday hustle and bustle relaxing in the spa bath (with a view!) or listening to the birds sing in the private courtyard.
“This is a truly wonderful place for a retreat. We'd come all the way from NZ, seeking a spot to base some wine touring from, and this one stood out for the promise of its amazing setting. It rained the entire time we were there so we didn't get the stunning sunrise and sunset... yet it didn't matter as the rain was fun for other reasons.. the kangaroos shaking themselves like wet dogs... the gleaming green of freshly washed forest - and being able to fill the amazing spa bath without feeling guilty (the cottage is rainwater fed) - the bath has a spectacular view down the valley and is large enough to 'swallow' two people. The bed was generously sized and very comfortable and we absolutely loved the wrought iron Juliet balcony with its drop-away views. Amelie's is reminiscent of a Tuscan villa on a Tuscan hillside (if you ignore the roos and gums :) ) and is a very healing place to be. No wifi... and hope Sally keeps in that way... if you need some R&R within easy driving reach of some spectacular wineries, then this is your place.”
