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 tranquillity of the rainforest listening only to the birds and the gentle breeze in the trees. 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 potbelly stove relaxing; do as much or as little as you like.
Mud Brick Cottage is a quaint two story cottage built as the original family home. It has three bedrooms, two outdoor entertaining spaces and a small kitchen/dining area. The large loft bedroom has a queen and two kid singles; and the bedrooms downstairs are one queen attached to the outside and accessed via the veranda and one twin internal. Fresh linen and towels are provided and the beds have electric blankets. There's a basic kitchenette and private BBQ to cater for simple meals. The cottage boasts a pot belly stove for heating and stays relatively cool in summer due to its position in the trees and the mud bricks. A double spa bath set in a garden conservatory is perfect for unwinding.
Mud Brick Cottage is one of five secluded, private, self-contained rustic cabins, each in their own separate area of forest on the property. They are available individually or as a group for up to 24 people. A tennis court is available for use up the hill at the main house.
Pets welcome by arrangement.
