Awesome place to visit, with tonnes of relaxation and downtime on offer. The property has a lot on offer, although does need a bit of maintenance, which the really nice new owners seem to be working on. The cottage was great and offered all we needed. The outdoor bath was A++!

This place is truly a hidden gem, my husband & I enjoyed a much needed weekend away in the Blue Wren Cottage. We were welcomed by the lovely hosts and felt at home straight away. Our cottage was wonderful; fully equipped, cosy and clean with the log fire to relax by. Our courtyard set in the bush located on the...

My partner and I stayed in Blue Wren over two nights. It was a perfect combination of romance, relaxation and peaceful. Beautifully placed up in the bush with an outdoor spa under the stars was breathtaking. Diane is a great host with yummy breakfasts and FRESH BAKED BREAD daily. Highly recommend, we will be back.

Nestled amongst the trees, overlooking a serene valley with the river in their backyard, wonderful birds and animals, where the only sounds are of the birds and bees and the occasional bikers zooming through the hills close by. Located close to Bob Turners trail inside the Wollemi National Park - a wonderful and mildly challenging trail to the upper reaches...

I came across this place on the web almost by accident. I am so glad I did. This is one of those special places that linger in one's memory long after the visit is over. We stayed in the Lyrebird suite. The room is quite large if a little dated, and has great views over the farm and the valley....

My husband arranged a surprise birthday weekend and arranged for us to stay in the Lyrebird Villa complete with three course dinner and daily breakfast basket. Jim and Diane were excellent hosts and very helpful. Our room and outlook was spacious and very clean and a little dated but that did not effect our stay. We enjoyed the billiards shed...

Spent a long weekend here at the tail end of winter. The hosts, Jim and Di, have a wonderful set of accommodation. Everything you needed was available in the cabins, down to torches, umbrellas and backpacks to take hiking. Fully stocked kitchen and a very generous breakfast tray (with home made bread) delivered every morning. Perfect secluded get away, and...

We stayed here to celebrate my husband's birthday in September 2013. We also love kayaking and took our own kayaks to explore the Colo River which is truly beautiful. It is a brilliant place with exceptional hosts and very comfortable and spacious accommodation. Comfy bed and loved the spa and balcony. We liked cooking our own (very generous) breakfast on...
