I fear this is one of those places, in one of those areas, where you could quite easily wake up one morning and realise you were meant to be back at work three days previously. It’s lovely from the word go, an enchanting cottage in the middle of the Hunter Valley, a place to relax and snooze and select a winery or five to visit.....

.... The living area is floored in spotted gum (much darker and richer than pine), with sunlight or spotlight reflecting off pale walls, while sofa and armchairs and open fireplace all murmur ‘stay’. There’s a fabulous kitchen (fridge, oven, dishwasher, microwave) that looks out into the bush, a worktop made from an old school woodwork bench and a dining table made from a barn door. Bedrooms are spotless and simply decorated in whites and taupes, and one bathroom has a spa. An eclectic mix of artwork colours the walls, much of it Sally's own. The cottage sits on 25 acres of what was originally an old dairy farm and all is yours to explore. You may not meet the Sneddons (they’re very nice, if you do!), but you could well bump into Bill at the nearby Allandale Winery, where you pick up the keys – he’s the wine-maker there. Breakfast provisions are supplied each day for you to ‘do a Jamie’: bacon, eggs, orange juice, croissants, muesli, cereal etc.
