We are a Covid safe business - Details Here

Warmer weather is here and along with it, we’re counting down the days to the next round of holidays. Whether you’re looking forward to a romantic midweek escape for a special occasion or planning a (more) effortless family holiday, our cottages set the scene for a peaceful getaway to connect with those you love. To create an even more unique and romantic experience (with or without the kiddos) we’re listing off five secrets to add that extra touch of romance and excitement to your getaway.


If your partner is the type that loves the beauty of fresh cut flowers, then ordering a bouquet to be delivered to your cottage could be just that thoughtful touch that communicates affection without a whole lot of effort. Bring a smile to their face with the beauty of their favourite florals.

Gourmet Platter

If you have a family to feed, but don’t want to skimp on presentation or ease, a gourmet platter or grazing table will keep bellies happy and parents in relaxation mode. There’s nothing quite like the gift of …‘honey, I’ve got food sorted’ to convince us to truly sit back and relax when on holiday. Create your own gorgeous platter or better yet order from one of our talented local caterers. Delicious spreads from The Platter Effect are a popular choice for many of our guests and intimate events.


Yes and please. So many of us don’t take the time to give our bodies (and minds) the relaxation they deserve, so I can’t think of anything more romantic than my partner arranging a massage for me while on holiday. Schedule a massage from one of our local mobile massage therapists, who will set up a massage table right in the privacy of your cottage. Enjoy bliss with a view.

Sunset Swim

Let the sky and our resort style pool overlooking the rolling hills set the scene for a sunset swim. No need to fight crowds for the perfect spot as the pool is only open to retreat guests. Soak up the fresh air and serenity as the sky puts on a show as the sun goes down.

Wood-fired Pizza

After a calming sunset swim, no doubt you’ll be ready for a home made meal. Just a few steps from the pool is our barbecue area with wood fired pizza oven. When you book your cottage, let Judy know you’d like to plan a pizza night. Bring a bottle of wine and your favourite pizza toppings for a gourmet rustic pizza you won’t soon forget.

Even if you’re traveling with a carload of kiddos, these special additions can mean the world to your parter on an otherwise family-focused trip.  If it’s just the two of you, take advantage of our new Romance Package for an effortless getaway.

Add on any of the above to make that special occasion uniquely yours. Book direct or contact Judy at 0434 284 070 for the upcoming holiday season before its too late!
