Had an absolute blast at the Mandalay Villas. Simon and Toni were great hosts, with great recommendations for both Vineyards and food locations. Very helpful and willing to provide additionals such as bikes, and a horse ride! Would most definitely stay here again.

Thank 701mirna

How to get there
We’re at the beginning of Congewai Road, just after Paxton and slightly beyond the Ellalong Lagoon.
Mandalay Villas is an easy 12 minute drive from Cessnock (our nearest main town) in a south westerly direction.
Your arrival into Cessnock will bring you to set of traffic lights facing the Royal Oak Hotel. Turn right onto Vincent Street and follow it to the large T-junction and the set of traffic lights where the street ends. Turn left at these lights and leave the town centre on the road to Wollombi, (be careful, the speed limit along this stretch of road is 60 kph). After 7 kms take the turning on the left to Paxton (Middle Road).
Drive for 4 kms and pass through Paxton, whereupon you’ll arrive at a crossroads.
