My husband and I wanted to go somewhere close to Sydney, in luxury accommodation, where we could be left alone and enjoy time together before our first baby was born. Cedars Mount View was perfect.
The location is lovely. It is about a 15 minute drive to Pokolbin, so you are not right in the centre of the wineries, and right in the middle of a huge property, full of wildlife - many types of birds, kangaroos grazing right outside the cabin and cicadas singing out beautifully.
We stayed in The Terrace, a luxurious, clean, cosy and romantic split-level place for a couple. Little chocolates on arrival, complimentary bottle of wine, breakfast hamper included in the price - so food was all taken care of! There is a lovely balcony, where we breakfasted both mornings, looking out into the bush, listening to the cicadas, and looking out for the kangaroos (which we saw at dusk both evenings we were there, but not the mornings). The king sized bed was extremely comfortable, the bathroom immaculately clean, the spa bath for two we used both nights (even though it was hot outside!), air conditioning was great and the entertainment system fabulous, with a good selection of DVDs. We had a problem with using the DVD player the first night, which wasn't a huge problem, and when we mentioned it to the staff the next day, it got fixed within the hour while we were out - I was so impressed with their efficiency and the extra chocolates they left us!
The self check-in and check-out system is wonderful, especially as we we just wanted to be left alone and not have to engage too much with other people, which is sometimes a problem when staying at B&Bs.
We had such a restful and relaxing time at The Terrace at Cedars, we will surely be back!
