Hidden Valley Retreat Cottages is conveniently close to Sydney yet you couldn’t feel more removed from the hustle and bustle of daily life once you arrive. Set on 40 acres of pristine land near Kurrajong, in the Hawkesbury area, we are tucked away in the foothills of the Blue Mountains. 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. Take a walk to enjoy the natural beauty of the wild, bushland that abounds, sip fine wine picked up on your day’s travel into the valley or sit by the open fire listening to your favourite music; do as much or as little as you like....

My boyfriend Cam and I loved staying at Hidden Valley Retreat Cottages. It was peaceful and very relaxing, having no reception also gave us a chance to really unwind and enjoy each others company.
The open wood fire was great as the temperature did drop overnight.
We went for a drive to Scenic World to look at the Three Sisters, however found ourselves not wanting to leave the cabin for too long. There is so much space out the front of the cabin to do yoga and have a picnic and just get lost in the nature.

Gorgeous location and fantastic set up. My 9 month old aussie shepherd loved the freedom he had to roam around. Beautiful 360 deg scenery. Definitely will venture back. Thanks so much !...

Hi everybody,
My partner and I just spent 4 nights away in willow cottage at hidden Valley. If you are looking for a place to switch off, kick back in a beautiful rustic environment that's comfortable and cosy this is the place for you. We were also very welcome to have our 2yr old german shepard dog join us (Lola) and it made it that much more special for us. She had her first swimming experience down at grose vale River, we all enjoyed bush walking along the creek and in the creek next to our cabin. Bilpin was a good day out not far, kurrajong was a lovely little town, Kevin the property manager was so friendly and helpful. Avoca lookout worth a visit. The different array of birdlife visually and musically, simply the peace and quiet, then night falls and roast marshmallow's on the outside fire pit. Thumbs up for us. We really had a wonderful time. Thanks again Fiona and Mike, Kevin and Cheryl. 😊
