We chose Bawley Bush Retreat for a short getaway, keen to return since our last stay in 2005. The booking process was seemless. I was reminded of what a great range of cabins they have. Mandy was very helpful and rang to confirm that the selection we made best suited us.

Gee, thanks Emily and David. Though I hope your next visit will be earlier than another 12 years it is very good for Pip and I to know that, with the essential help of our staff, we have kept up to date and are still getting it right. Your report makes me glad that we have been able to maintain the beautiful and peaceful natural surroundings we are lucky to be nestled within.

"It depends on your purposes. There is a range of varied cabins."
"Read the Tripadvisor reviews before booking- the photos do not reflect what we saw."
"We stayed in Cormorant Cottage this time but have viewed other cottages and they are all of excellent standard."
"Rooms upstairs are kept warm by the potbellied stoves in winter, but add stairs if you need to access a bathroom during the night."
"Choose Chefs Cottage for your accommodation. It's secluded and has a magical setting with an outdoor bath. Large master bedroom has kingsize bed and tranquil views out into the Spotted Gum forest."
