A little over three hours south of Sydney and just outside of Milton, Cupitt's Estate ticks a lot of boxes for a special weekend away.

Set on rolling green dairy paddocks cradled by the Budawang Ranges, the family-run vineyard and sustainable farm features an award-winning restaurant and cellar door, and an award-winning craft brewery too. It's a favourite for country weddings (once you've seen the view and tasted the wine, it's easy to see why), and, as a cherry on top, the Cupitt family makes their own cheese—and it is very, very good. 

While that's certainly enough to have you firing up Google maps and grabbing the car keys, Cupitt's Estate has also just revealed a set of 10 luxury cabins, meaning you can officially make Cupitt's your home for your next trip down south. 

Created to sleep two, with a separate bedroom and living area, kitchenette, and full bathroom, these cabins are much roomier than a tiny home and feel more like a luxurious hotel suite. Think king beds with plush Koala mattresses and European pillows, a walk-in rain shower, and a roomy private deck with views onto the paddocks and mountains. 

Each cabin is fitted out with original artworks from Van Rensburg Gallery in Milton—like lino prints of local birdlife by Shoalhaven-based artist Peta West, and magical bushland waterfalls by Michael Davis. As well as art, you'll find a smart TV, predosed coffee plungers prepped with locally-roasted Sunday Life coffee, Leif products in the bathroom, and a Brabantia compost and recycling bin too.

Your mini-bar comes stocked with a selection of Cupitt's Estate wines—they make a whopping 24 varietals—as well as their craft beers, an edit of bottled cocktails, garnishes, and ice too. Each guest is treated to a bottle of Sparkling on arrival, a complimentary wine tasting in the Cupitt's cellar, and a breakfast hamper packed with local and estate-made produce like granola, sourdough, yoghurt, fruit, butter, and more. 

Best part? A selection of the cabins feature enormous outdoor tubs, perfect for soaking in with a glass of bubbles or an icy cold can of Cupitt's Milton Pilsner at sunset, as you peer out across those pretty green hills and grazing Black Angus. 

Once you've bathed, wined, dined, and sampled all of Cupitt's divine cheese and tasty brews, Milton village, Ulladulla, and Mollymook Beach are just a quick five minute's drive away—making this a pretty amazing way to soak up some of the best of the South Coast.
