  • Liked: Cleanliness

The cottage we stayed in was beautifully decorated with a combustion fire and jacuzzi. The view from the veranda is gorgeous. The couple who run the property are friendly and helpful. A perfect place to relax surrounded by nature. Highly recommend.

Secluded retreat!

Incredibly secluded location, so be sure to take some provisions! We only stayed overnight, and didn't get much time to explore, but the location is pretty amazing and would be nice to explore!

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Peaceful and beautiful. The Chapel was lovely and the overall grounds were great. Recommend for couples getaway. The spa is great too. 20-25 minutes drive to Forster. Only negatives, They need blinds on bedroom windows so 5am sunrise doesn't wake you and spa is very loud when it's heating.
