When we go away we usually go to the coast but this time we wanted to try something different. We'd always wanted to try the Byron Bay Hinterland and we found booking with Francesca really easy. She recommended the Forest Retreat cabin because it was the most private and that's what we wanted. It was excellent, like its own mini retreat, tucked away behind its own beautiful garden and a cute courtyard. It was very quiet and very peaceful. We loved the big spa bath which was an extra large size (superb). The mountain views were stunning and the rolling mist up the valley in the mornings was pretty as a postcard. We took the walking trails each day where you can spot some wildlife, we saw a mama koala and her baby on her back which was really nice to connect with nature. We enjoyed barbecuing at the cabin and the eateries that Francesca recommended around the hinterland were also fantastic. Our favourites for lunch were Doma Japanese cafe at a cute village in the hills called Federal just up the road from Summerhills retreat and also Eltham Valley Pantry. We also loved all the little touches in the cabin and the champagne on arrival was a welcome treat. We are already dreaming up our next excuse to go back!
