The 2:30am alarm on Sunday morning after we finally went to bed at 11:30pm on Saturday was about as welcome as a nasty itch downstairs and raised the question of whether it is better to have very little sleep or no sleep at all.
I somehow managed to raise Shelley from slumber, slammed down a couple of coffees, and we headed to the hire car …
... the wineries, which for £75 a night incl breakie, could not be grumbled at. After a quick unloading we heard a low grumble coming up the drive, to which Hayley shouted "it's here!" And so with a final application of the factor 55, we went out to meet Debbie our tour guide for the next three hours.

TravelPod Member ReviewsPeppers Convent, Hunter Valley Pokolbin
Peppers Convent neared perfection as accommodation. The rooms were beautifully apportioned and decorated, as were the communal areas. Breakfast was splendidly generous and varied and the staff were all tremendously helpful and friendly. The slight downside was the wi-fi which refused to work and the minimal number of television channels available in the room, but these are minor complaints about an overall excellent experience.
