Wow, WOw, WOW!! This place is the ideal getaway. It is set in a stunning valley with beautiful, tranquil countryside with a awe-inspiring vistas at every turn of your head, literally. I went here for a relaxing/fun hen's weekend and it was perfect for that. I hadn't even left and I was already planning to return with the rest of... More

Firstly, we attended with a Groupon - stayed for three nights. We had a fabulous stay in the very hidden away and aptly named Hideaway. We enjoyed the spa pool and the fireplace... The bed was comfy and the only difficult thing was being woken so early because of the skylights in the bedroom (we are not morning people!) so... More

My husband and I were in need of some time out together away from the kids. We spent two nights at CFR. It was very private, with everything you could want set in a beautiful bush setting. I would highly recommend this place to couples, families or large groups. We will definitely be back.

I stayed at The Hideaway for three nights. The fire and jacuzzi were perfect for relaxing in the cool winter weather. Peter was friendly and helpful, printing off maps of the trails for us to go bush walking. The cabin was immaculate and well stocked, not to mention gorgeous. The Hideaway has beautiful views of the lagoon and is quite... More

We hired three houses at Clarendon (Tara, Summer House and Talawahl) and I had the pleasure of visiting each of these during out stay. Each one had its own unique charm and I fell in love with them all. This venue was perfect for our function and I've never in all my life dealt with such amazingly friendly staff. The... More

When you enter the Blue Wren, you are simply "Gob Smacked". You have everything that you could possible need. Upstairs loft with your own private balcony, study and primary Queen size bedroom. Downstairs is amazing, as you have a lovely log fire, TV and extremely comfortable lounges just to relax. The Kitchen is modern and includes all kitchen utensils that... More

Wendy and Peter were fantastic in helping create a beautiful, comfortable and warm home. We were surprised how quickly the time flew on our 3 day stay. The kitchen was fantastic and included all the utensils required to cook a feast. The spa was excellent in size and location overlooking the mountains. We were most happy with the fireplace -...
