We recently spent a week in The Annex, Susan and Roland were ideal hosts and very welcoming.
The house is lovely, nicely furnished, comfortable and well equipped. It is a new build in an old style with beautiful high rooms, elegant windows and a very good air conditioning system.
There are plenty of wallabies and we were lucky enough to see a really small baby from a distance of about three meters.
The Annex is approximately 17 kms from Branxton where we were able to purchase food and a daily news paper.
It was remarkably peaceful and relaxing.
The Annex was a great holiday rental residence and the owners have shown great hospitality. Though our trip was only a few days, it was very enjoyable. A substantial breakfast was already supplied, so you don't need to worry about that. The whole building was very spacious and comfortable. Although it was a tad far away from the shops, it was a great experience that is close to nature. We would definitely visit again!
The location is fantastic, on top of the hill with panoramic views and very peaceful. Sue & Roland are great hosts and we could not want for anything more. Everything was provided. We came to visit the wineries and were a little hesitant at first being around 25 k's away but it was so peaceful and quiet we are so glad we booked. If we visit the Hunter Valley again we would definitely stay here.
The Annex was the perfect retreat with friends to celebrate a special occasion. Directions provided to the place were easy to follow. Located on the top of a hill with spectacular views we adored the beautiful sunset in the evening and were companied by wallabies. At night we could see the bright stars and could hear the crack of thunder echo through the valley. During the day we utilised the BBQ area for lunch and were lucky to see eagles in the sky. Everything was provided for and more. Susan and Roland have exceeded my expectations to every fine detail to make our stay a memorable one. I would love to come back with my family.

What a magnificent place to stay at. The Annex retreat I shall call it as our family of 4 had an absolutely fabulous stay. Roland and Sue are terrific hosts and have thought of every little detail to make you welcome. Better than a hotel stay I say. Everything is provided. Just pack your clothes, follow directions given by Sue and you will be very comfortable when you get there.
We will certainly return.
