Fantastic place that can be enjoyed by all. We went away with a few families and it was great fun. The kids had so much to do and play with, they kept themselves entertained all weekend with tennis, the indoor heated swimming pool, games room and running around in the open playing areas. The cottage rooms were neat and tidy... More

A great chance to just relax, unwind and enjoy the company with wonderful friends. The children had a blast spending time playing in the games room, on the tennis court and swimming in the indoor heated pool. Spacious surroundings. The Linden & Laurel cottages are wonderfully set up - great for small families. The fire pit, which created an outstanding... More

We were one of 4 families that enjoyed the June long weekend at Federation Gardens. What a great place to base our adventures in the Blue Mountains. We could go off in our cars and do all the wonderful sightseeing/activities that the Blue Mountains has to offer, but the kids were so keen to get back to the accommodation with... More

We visited just for one night with our two kids, and it was beautiful. The fire was on when we arrived and the cabin was beautiful and toasty! Julie responded to my emails prior to our stay quickly and efficiently. Our cabin was clean and tidy, with all the basic crockery that we would need. Unfortunately we didn't get to... More

I loved my stay in a Possums Hideaway cabin. I stayed for four nights and I would stay again in heart beat. The cabin was gorgeous with a cozy fireplace and an amazing spar bath. A friendly possum came to visit and we were had the surprise of snow on our first night. Staff were so welcoming and helpful with... More

Well Rebecca, you certainly had a special experience during your stay with us! To wake up to a blanket of snow cover outside that stayed around for most of your stay is something few guests have experienced. We are so glad you enjoyed your time here and we hope to welcome you both back again soon (can't guarantee snow next... More

Last minute reservations made with these guys.... Beautiful little place, four couples retreat cabins tucked into the rear of the property... The cabin was quaint and lovely, but given the time of year it was exceptionally cold, which was felt in the rooms... The only downside was the cold, I thought the cabin could use some insulation? I would recommend... More

We are so pleased you enjoyed your last minute getaway with us Adam. The winter air in the Mountains is 'exhilarating' to say the least and I am sorry that even with you log fire burning you still felt the cold. We would love to welcome you back again - perhaps in the warmer months! More
