Our self contained studio is ideal for a couple looking for a quiet escape. Close to Pittwater Peninsula's fabulous attractions: Palm Beach, Whale Beach and Pittwater with the convenience of Avalon Village a short drive away.
Located in one of Bilgola Plateau's loveliest streets, there are ample opportunities for walks which take in the surrounding views to the beaches and ocean in the east, or views to Pittwater and Ku-ring-gai National Park in the west. A local deli serving great coffee and food, a wine store and pizza gourmet shop are within easy reach of The Circle Retreat.
Close by is Angophora Reserve, an ancient volcanic caldera densely forested with coastal rainforest. It is one of the oldest and most untouched wilderness reserves within Sydney, home to sugar glider possums, koalas, bandicoots and... peacocks - a legacy of the affluent city-dwellers who built sprawling holiday estates in Ruskins Rowe, bordering Angophora Reserve, at the base of the valley.
A few minutes drive away is the village of Avalon - well serviced with many cafes, small restaurants, a great little independent cinema which screens major and fringe films, boutique clothing and homeware stores, beauticians, 'spa' treatments, delicatessens, a Woolworths supermarket, all the major banks, post office, service station, DVD store and a modern community centre which hosts yoga, pilates and frequent art exhibitions.
Bilgola Beach is our closest ocean beach - a ten minute walk down hill from the studio,[but probably a thirty minute walk back up!]. Bilgola Beach is small and friendly, with mostly local families using the ocean pool or grabbing a coffee or icecream at Billys cafe, right on the edge of the sand. It's worthwhile remembering that all beach carparks in Pittwater require a parking ticket to be bought and displayed.
On the Pittwater [estuary] side is the lovely Clareville Beach, just several minutes drive down the Plateau from our studio. A broad, sandy beach laps upto grassy areas shaded by tall trees. The sunsets are spectacular, as the sun dips over the hills of the Ku-ring-gai National Park on the western side of Pittwater. A perfect spot for a picnic, a bbq or just a glass of wine while you watch the resident ducks mooch along the edge of the water. Clareville Kiosk provides an elegant lunch and dinner service from an historic cottage.
