There’s an undeniable romanticism that seeps from the crumbling granite walls of The Old Brick Pub. They’re walls that have seen a thing or two in their time, standing here in the Hilltops Region in Young, NSW, since 1870. Once known as the Burangong Hotel, the original watering hole has been sensitively renovated and reborn as an adults-only retreat with echoes of gold rush history. Now, the Old Brick Pub allows you to shift back a few gears, with views over paddocks dotted with resident horses and alpacas. There’s much here to remind you of the simple pleasures found before digital devices infiltrated our lives. Pop the needle on your favourite vinyl and settle in by the fireplace for a game of cards. Sit in the garden and enjoy the birdsong. Or venture out to nearby cherry orchards and cool climate wineries before you dive into the linen bedding and woollen doona of the king size bed.
