The Charles is located in Broke and is ideal for those guests attending Weddings or Events in Broke, Wollombi, or the Hunter Valley.  Or those who are looking for a relaxing escape with great views & exploring what the Hunter Valley has to offer.

The Charles named after Sir Charles Broke-Vere, the namesake of Broke is set on four private acres on the outskirts of the Broke village and has some of the best expansive views in the Hunter Valley. The Charles is surrounded by farmlands, and local vineyards and minutes from all the cellar doors and restaurants in the area including the award-winning Margan, Krinklewood, 1813, Winmark, and Kawal Rock Distillery are a few of our favourites. 

In the Broke Village, we have a new café Magooneys for coffee or a bite to eat and the Broke General Store for all those last-minute food & drink needs is just minutes away.

The accommodation comprises five bedrooms; one king and three queen bedrooms, and a bunk/ single bedroom. The wrap-around verandas create several seating nooks where you can slip away for a quiet coffee, drink, and enjoy a good book.

The chef’s kitchen is fully equipped with double ovens and an induction cooktop, outside you’ll find a new 6-burner BBQ. There is a large fridge and a wine fridge to keep your local wine purchases chilled and ready to enjoy. There is a Nespresso coffee pod machine and slow cooker to assist you in cooking while you’re out exploring the Broke Fordwich region.

Designed for group enjoyment, The Charles has polished timber floors, high-raked ceilings, a spacious lounge, and a dining room with a large table and multiple outside entertainment areas, all with panoramic views over the local farms, vineyards, ranges, and the magical yellow rock.

At The Charles, we provide absolutely everything your group could need with a huge 55-inch smart TV in the main lounge room and another 55-inch smart TV in the 5th bedroom, free WIFI, books and games. With fully ducted reverse cycle air conditioning, ceiling fans, and an inbuilt gas fireplace, the amenities make The Charles the perfect retreat for all occasions and all seasons. You can kick back with your favourite wine and enjoy the spectacular scenery.
