Barrington Hideaway
Reviewed March 24, 2014

For a bunch of middle age blokes (early 40's!) looking to have a dirt bike weekend getaway in the Barrington tops, the Barrington River Hideaway was the perfect location to base ourselves. Safe and secure for the bikes at night. Great size cabins in a peaceful location. We cooked our own meals on the deck overlooking the river - and the local pub courtesy bus came in very handy on Saturday night as none of us wanted to be designated driver! The fire trails in the Barrington tops were challenging which made it all the more exciting for us to explore a different spot from our usual New England area. If we're not back soon as a group - then no doubt we'll be back separately with our wives!

A great location near amenities. Lovely views and a tranquil setting. The cabins are of a high standard, they very clean and well appointed and equipped with everything you need for a night or a week. Excellent! I would definitely go back to further explore the area and stay here.

Had a weekend out at Barrington RIver Hideaway, and had a great time. Fantastic accommodations with a kitchen and a grill out on the deck. You're able to order a BBQ or Breakfast pack in case you get in late so all of your food is already there and waiting for you.

The cabins are very well furnished, and each overlooking the river, so it's incredibly peaceful and serene. Both mornings I was there, I went down to the river early to do some fishing and saw what I believe were two different platypus. Pretty surreal to see them in real life.

The property is incredible, and the surrounding hills and pastures are really something. I will definitely be back.

What a beautiful peaceful setting with the cabin overlooking the river and bushland. Beautifully decorated, clean and luxurious and not a single thing that was uncatered for. Arriving late after a long day and to have dinner and breakfast already organised was the perfect treat. I will definitely be back. The location was ideal being close to town and the communication and care from Sue was over and beyond expectations. Thank you Barrington River Hideaway!

This cabin was just what we needed for a night away from Sydney. The location is perfect for exploring the surrounding area and we thoroughly enjoyed the peacefull setting on the river. Will definitely return.

This cabin was beautifully decorated, and very clean and comfortable. The bush setting by the Barrington River was so peaceful and we loved the little Blue Wrens and other birds that we saw in the trees. The owners were friendly and keen to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. It was a wonderful weekend. Robyn & Ingrid

Really enjoyed sitting on the shaded deck overlooking the river on a summer afternoon with a cool breeze and a cold drink. Quiet location with only the sound of the birds and the river. A good base for day trips to some of the surrounding national parks. Not too far out of Gloucester to sneak in for a coffee or dinner, but the cabins are well a equipped so there was little need for us to go anywhere. The cabins are nicely appointed, comfortable beds and all very clean and neat. We look forward to going back for a weekend escape!
