“Magical hideaway”
Reviewed September 28, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The Hermitage is just wonderful - a picturesque, comfortable hideaway set in Kurrajong's beautiful rolling countryside. The cottage is adorable, the gardens stunning. John and Peter are perfect hosts, welcoming, helpful and thoughtful. It's a working farm too, with cows and chooks. Generous breakfast included with fresh eggs, bacon, everything you need. Kitchen facilities are simple but fine for cooking your own meals, or there are good restaurants close by (driving distance). Go bushwalking, have a glass of wine on the lawn at dusk, build yourself a roaring fire, feel the serenity!

“Perfect retreat in the foothold of the Blue Mountains”
Reviewed June 18, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

What a fabulous place! We (my husband, our labrador pup, and I) stayed here for two nights and what a wonderful two nights they were. Beautiful location, lovely hosts and a truly breathtaking cottage. Spacious kitchen and living areas, the comfiest beds I've ever experienced in a B&B and the most picturesque views. And all in a place where we could bring our pup, what a treat! We will definitely be returning one day.

“Cosy, comfortable and well equipped”
Reviewed May 23, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Lovely relaxing weekend at this cosy and comfortable cottage, just over an hour's drive from Sydney. Beautiful country location with great views from the sitting room and bathroom. Lovely wood burner in addition to regular heating kept the winter chill at bay. Generous breakfast provisions and friendly hosts. Our dogs had a ball and we feel totally relaxed!

“A piece of Australian history in beautiful, tranquil surroundings”
Reviewed October 8, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed here as a couple and enjoyed the cottage with its lovely character, gorgeous gardens and comfortable accommodation. The house has kept its historical Australian charm and it was interesting to hear of the original family who lived in it before. We found the quiet setting the perfect place to unwind and relax. The bathroom has a window with a view over green farmland but a minor negative is that you have to go onto the verandah to access it. We didn't mind as it was wasn't cold but could be challenging on a cold winter morning.The cottage is comfortable and has freshly laid eggs and everything else needed to cook your own breakfast. The surrounding area has some nice restaurants and the drive to Mt Tomah Botanic Gardens and the Megalong Valley are excellent. The hosts are welcoming and friendly and ensure that you have a delightful break on their well groomed property.

“Tranquil setting”
Reviewed September 9, 2013 for a stay in September 2012

It's hard to decide which part of the property I liked best since the house itself reminded me of my family getaways as a child and that brought back fond memories. The backyard area where we ate outside was private and so peaceful. And then walking in the bigger area past the cows and out to the bush area was amazing - we even made it down to a little hidden stream. The evenings in front of the fire relaxing were also great. We had such an enjoyable and relaxing time!

I give my highest recommendation to this property for the peaceful and perfect relaxing surroundings. Bravo to the excellent hosts for creating such a perfect escape. I will go back for sure!

“AN ABSOLUTE DELIGHT!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed at Hermitage Cottage with our two little doggies over the June Long Weekend.

What a truely special place, with such welcoming hosts. A stay we havent forgotten and cant wait to enjoy again.

From the moment we arrived at Hermitage John and Peter made such an effort to make us feel welcome and we really appreciated all the special touches such as the sumptious breakfast provisions provided.

We enjoyed sharing a glass of wine together in front of the open fire and having a big "sleep in" after a wonderful day of walking around Kurrajong and all it has to offer.

We will definately be back to enjoy your wonderful hospitality!

Truely a home away from home.

Thanks again!
