Our cottage guests are treated to complimentary port and chocolate on arrival, a delicious breakfast hamper for the duration of their stay (containing bacon, eggs, tomato, bread, milk and juice) and a late midday check-out not afforded by many other places in the Hunter Valley.

Although all the cottages are slightly different in layout and furnishings, each has been styled in a rustic country charm fashion. The cottages are built from either sandstone, timber slab, or convict brick in keeping with the rich heritage of the farm and nearby historic Wollombi village.

Owner / Manager

Excluding the original landholders (three Napoleonic War veterans), the property has always been a Heslop farm, now a 5th generation farm! Originally a cattle-grazing and fruit orchard farm, everything you see today – vineyard, buildings, Poplar Grove – has been at the helm of current owners Daryl and Phillipa Heslop who inherited the farm in 1974.

The estate is a labour of love. Farm life is demanding with cows, horses, deer, chickens and vineyards to tend to. Organic principles govern the farming with a commitment to sustainability and an eye to passing the farm down to future generations.

Daryl spends most of his time in the vineyard which is hand-pruned and the fruit handpicked. No insecticides or pesticides are used on the grapes or vines so meticulous daily management is required to produce the award-winning wines we love.

And Phillipa, the perfect hostess, focuses on the guest accommodation and cottage side of the business. She is also a keen gardener and her beautiful Homestead garden attests to that.

Both are passionate about the land and this property, and what a stunning property they have created. The very first wedding held on the property was that of their own daughter in 2000 and it was only expected that brides-to-be have been drawn to the beauty of the property ever since.
