    A little slice of heaven in Pokolbin.
    From the moment you step out of the car at Thistle Hill your relaxation starts. Donna and Stuart's friendliness, professionalism and just lovely welcoming gestures are the perfect start to a weekend away. Fantastic location on approx 10+ acres, wander thru the vines, sip wine and nibble cheese by the dam, play with the puppies.. hard to choose what made it so lovely. Our room was so comfy with everything we could need.. including a nightcap surprise of brownies and cognac when we returned from our night out. Breakfast in the nook the next morning with home cooked treats and the most beautiful breeze blowing through was a great start to our final day there. Most definitely will return.
