This is the perfect place for anyone looking to relax in the peace and tranquility of the rainforest, listening to the birds and the running water of the creek.

Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend escape.. We loved the feeling of seclusion we got from Willow Cottage. Hard to believe this could be only just over an hour from our busy city life!

Waking up to nothing but the sounds of the birds allowed us to feel like everything had slowed down and we started our days incredibly relaxed.

We had pretty much everything we needed at the cottage, the bedding was comfortable, the BBQ was fantastic, spa is a bonus, fireplace was cosy and air con/heating kept us very happy.

We relaxed, cooked on the BBQ, drank wine by the fireplace at night and went into nearby Richmond for a pub lunch.
We were lucky enough to be blessed with unusually warm Winter weather!

One of the best parts was that we were able to bring our dog along, who loved his big backyard and he enjoyed a nice long walk along Cabbage Tree Road with us, taking in all the new smells and was intrigued by the resident Shetland Pony.

We would love to come back again in the future, but would definitely stay an extra night next time!

Thanks again for a lovely weekend!

Willow Cottage was the perfect getaway for some R&R. Surrounded by the sounds of nature and being cosy around the fire, it was just what we needed. Our little dog also enjoyed the wide open area for her to play all day....

Willow Cottage was the perfect place to unwind and escape from the city without having to go too far.

The log cabin was very rustic, quaint, yet comfortable and felt like travelling back in time. No wifi, no reception, just some friends, the sounds of birds and a log fire. You're at the gateway to the blue mountains so there are plenty of walks not far away but we just switched off and relaxed. There is a great sunset view point for a picnic at the end of Cabbage Tree Road just a 10 minute drive from the property.

We really enjoyed it and would recommend it to others.
