We have visited Di & Adrian's haven many times. Our last visit was last weekend. We were welcomed warmly by Di, put in our favourite cabin and greeted by a cheese platter and a decanter of sherry. The cabins have their own spa bath, a fire in winter, air conditioning in summer and are immaculately clean and well presented. We...

Di and Adrian made us feel special and unique, wrapping themselves around us - when we wanted peace and quiet we got it, when we wanted company we couldn't have asked for better. Lovely people. Di asked us whether we minded her experimenting with some recipes - wow! so glad we agreed. This was an idyllic stay, wish we could...

We spent 4 nights at Di & Adrians' Arcadian Retreat and it was the highlight of our trip to Australia! The impeccably furnished suites have everything you could possibly need for a luxurious and comfortable stay. The meals were wonderful, the pool (with amazing little waterfall) was refreshing and the scenery was beautiful. We hardly felt the need to go...

We love the Arcadian Retreat. We have just recently returned for another stay over the June long weekend. Di and Adrian who own/run the retreat are wonderful hosts providing freshly baked goodies daily, fully cooked breakfasts included, BBQ hampers and dinners on request. The food is excellent quality with freshly baked breads, homemade sauces to boot. The villas are beautifully...

I'm confused by Ewus G's comment - they clearly did not stay or even come to see the Arcardian retreat. This getaway is a little slice of heaven - from the absolutely gorgeous hosts Di and Adrian, who leave no detail unattended - from the welcome cheese plate and Di's grandma's favourite sherry on arrival, to the refilled fireplaces ready...

Arcadian Retreat was perfect for a long weekend exploring the lower Hunter Valley. The accommodation is lovely, with quiet and private suites, surrounded by charming gardens and a very attractive pool. An unexpected surprise was the quality of Di's meals - the breakfast was sensational and the evening BBQ hampers a perfect way to spend the evening. Every detail was...

We booked our wedding reception with Arcadian Retreat. At first they were great anticipating our needs and providing an excellent response at short notice. We were really looking forward to the garden reception but suddenly had the rug pulled from under our feet when they literally dumped us and told us they'd taken bookings from other guests. We felt misled...

They did not pay a deposit when requested. We discovered they booked and paid a deposit for another local venue. We therefore put the rooms back on the market. They have never set foot on this property.

“There are 2 bungalows, each with 2 suits. They are nestled into the meadow and are really identical. Can't go wrong with any of them.”
