Premium Group Accommodation in the Heart of Hunter Valley Vineyards

Thistle Hill Guesthouse is your group's tranquil oasis on Hermitage

Our elegant, sophisticated, pet friendly venue is one of the few places locally to allow exclusive venue use, allowing you to invite additional guests onsite for events, pre and post wedding celebrations and gatherings. Our exclusive venue is BYO, DIY or we can arrange and provide services to meet your needs.

Pristine grounds and beautiful surroundings encourage relaxation, unleash creativity, and foster a team spirit.  Our surroundings might be relaxed, but our attention to detail certainly is not. Thistle Hill Guesthouse can comfortably accommodate up to 50 people for family functions and 30 for business or corporate groups, across three distinct accommodation options.

We love hosting a range of single day & multi day events

Corporate Events & Retreats

Workshops, galas, AGMs, strategy meetings, workshops and mental health retreats are well suited to our tranquil surroundings, complemented by plenty of inclusions. Day rates and midweek specials are available for business functions. We offer fully flexible packages including catering, team building and presentation equipment

Weddings, Formals & Parties

From black tie fundraisers to micro weddings and milestone birthday parties, our property is the perfect backdrop to stage the best events and parties.

You can host micro weddings and elopements onsite, or provide ancillary accommodation and pre and post wedding events for Weddings close by

Group Events, Workshops & Retreats

Sporting groups, dance troupes, health retreats, and art or creative workshops. Our space is available for day retreats and multi day group events. We’re one of the few premium accommodation providers allowing your group the flexibility of self-catering or fully serviced retreats and events.
