A few nights away from the rat race here was really delightful. The accommodation is so well thought out I couldn't really fault a thing. great decor & you don't even need to worry about the basic cooking condiments - they've thought of all that for you. The bathroom was absolutely superb and the views from the retreat very relaxing. All you need to take with you is some good wines. A great spot if you just can't be bothered socialising as you would at a B&B alongside other couples. The mary valley has a few great activities on offer too if you do decide to leave the retreat. i'd highly recommend a pastie at the kenilworth bakery - so yummy. The kitchen is very well stocked & you can actually cook anything. little touches like the home made biscuits and the seasonal fruits make you realise the hosts are passionate about making it a very comfortable stay. the arrival treats are perfect too, if you want no distractions. the fire place is lovely and easy to operate, overall a really lovely getaway.

Room Tip: ask for the main retreat cabin

A wonderful retreat where you can just be a couple! The accomodation is wonderful, a large bath to soak in, the double shower is superb and the breakfast provisions are more than plentiful.The view is nature at its best. The hosts Tanya and Tony have added some wonderful touches that certainly make you feel special!! There is a bottle of bubbly in the fridge and a cheese plate to enjoy from the moment that you arrive. Tanya is a wonderful cook so the "home baked " biscuits and bread for breakfast are just superb.This retreat is located on a quiet spot high on the hill of the property, with no other houses or cabins in sight.
A very special retreat to relax and unwind!
