Brilliant family place with a super friendly management. The refurbished train carriages are good fun for the kids and the huge pool and tennis courts a plus. Included breakfast hampers will easily cover a solid breakfast.

Welcoming staff, not far out of the city, but still feel like you're miles away. Cabins are a good distance apart. We attended a wedding nearby and this was not too far from the venue which was great. The breakfast hampers were massive and put together with thought. Will definitely be back!

Our last minute getaway from Sydney to this mountain retreat was well worth the drive. Our children aged 4 and 6) loved hand-feeding the alpaca's, looking for the free-range chicken's eggs in the gardens, feather finding and generally exploring the farm on their own. We all took advantage of the heated plunge pool in the middle of winter as well... More

If you're looking for a peaceful setting with cosy log fires, comfy king beds and spacious verandahs, this is perfect. The cottages are very well stocked with all "essentials" for a great weekend - even a generous brekky basket. We came as a family group for a 50th celebration and all age groups were catered for with the little ones... More
