the location


“Armidale’s heritage buildings, gardens and moss covered churches look like the stage set for a period drama” – The Lonely Planet
Famous for being one of the few places in Australia that truly experiences “the four seasons” this beautiful pocket amongst the New England Countryside is a true gem. At Peterson’s we experience bud burst on our vines in the spring and the garden comes to life, beautiful sunsets on our property after a long summer day, transformed into a spectacle of orange and reds in the autumn, making way for snuggles by the fire while it snows outside in winter. You can’t get more romantic than that, year round.

“Thank you soooo much seriously you and your staff are amazing. Everyone was saying how amazing you all were. Your staff dealt with the oldies and their constant requests lol which is not easy. He complained to me about having to stand up too long for the photos. But that was all he could fault.

I honestly can not thank you guys enough. It was everything I could have asked for and more!!!”
