Elsewhere Retreat is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was our second family holiday at Elsewhere Farm and it was even better than last year, if that is possible. Everything is provided for you and is of excellent quality, from the comfortable beds to the two beautiful open fires. There is so much to do...4 wheel drives down by the creek, beautiful walks, outdoor games,flying kites on the hill, and just sitting by the fire relaxing and enjoying time with the family. None of us wanted to leave Elsewhere and we will certainly be back. The Wilson-Sprowles family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can absolutely recommend Elsewhere. It is a fantastic property, the house is amazing, absolutely spotless and with so much attention to every tiny detail. Its an absolute credit to the owners. The view from the house is magical, with beautiful green pastures and misty hills, which look wonderful from the big verandah or sitting inside enjoying the open fires. All of our family,from our 7 months old baby to Nana aged 87 had a fantastic holiday....and we will certainly be back again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dear LouiseThank you so much for a lovely weekend in your gorgeous valley retreat. The house was fabulous and we all had such a great time. Walks down to the creek, the little ones loved the pond and the gardens and verandahs got great use by the kids racing around and playing hide and seek. The mums were very happy with the kitchen and as expected the Dads appreciated the TV at night for the Wallabies match and the Tour De France.We went horse riding locally and enjoyed some treats from the Tea House ��� all in all a great time, we all just wished for just one more day.Thanks again, and would be happy to book again and refer on to our friends.Amanda

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had an amazing weekend away at Elsewhere. The house is beautiful, very clean and well stocked with anything you could possible need. We took our two dogs who had the time of their lives exploring the property. We all loved it so much we have already booked another weekend in a few months time! We highly recommend this property. Thank you Elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I highly recommend this property for a family with small children. The retreat offers seclusion(children can go crazy and not bug others) while located near civilisation. The house is very 'workable' and has anything required for a stay; very well fitted out kitchen, potacot and lots of space. Owners have given the place great attention to detail. We loved it and will definitely return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elsewhere "Wow" was way beyond our expectations...It offered peace tranquility and serenity and even though it rained we still enjoyed just sitting in the rocking chairs on the verandah and swaying in the hammocks....all you could hear apart from your own heart beating were the sounds of birds, crickets and frogs...just listening to the rain with Andrea Bocelli echoeing through the valley was haunting and mesmerising...we will never forget our stay at Elsewhere and we will definately be back....A++++
