The Cottage was built in about 1865 and now Heritage Listed on one of the first settled properties in this part of the Hawkesbury River.It was originally owned by James Singleton who,with his brother Benjamin Singleton operated the biggest tidal mill from the 1830's onwards.Singletons Mill supplied flour grown from the local area which was taken by sail ship to the colony at Syney Cove.

The area is steeped in the history of Australia's early settler's,its convict history and of the local custodian's of the land.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! Two nights not enough! Myself, my cousin, my daughter and her 3-legged dog spent a couple of nights here in July 2016. The property was clean and tidy. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the location and especially loved using the fireplace at night. During the day sitting on the verandah watching the birdlife (some cheeky birds visited us) was blissful. The verandah was very secure for our dog which gave us peace of mind. We definitely intend on staying again! Oh and just a heads up to any heavy phone users, phone reception is limited, though we could get a signal outside on the verandah (whenever we remembered we had phones!) :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful location Lovely property, not cheap but good value. The owner is very affable & helpful. Blissfully quiet at night. Great stay for families with kids or just a couple looking for a break from the rat race. The only negative was the overall cleanliness of the house. I would stay again but would take some cleaning products to the place before moving in. Awesome steaks at local pub too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just LOVED it! We spent 5 nights at this lovely property and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The cottage had everything you needed and it was warm and very comfortable. The dogs had a ball and it was fantastic that they were allowed inside the house and I think, like us, they didn't want to leave. We have been to many pet-friendly properties over the years and this was up there with the best for both humans and animals. Thanks Brad for allowing us to stay in your lovely cottage and we will all definitely be back. If we win the "big one" we will make you an offer ... he he he. Regards, Robyn, Ky & Jayda.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic property We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Singleton's Retreat , whilst it was quite d distance to get there - it's location was secluded and beautiful. The house was wonderfully kept and surrounding yards very well maintained and our 2 dogs loved it there as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! We stayed for 8 nights and loved every moment! Brad is a great guy-nice to talk to and readily available when needed (eg getting more fire wood), yet allows for privacy. When we arrived the house was cosy warm and smelling of Fresia flowers! Our two dogs loved sleeping on the veranda, our family (and friends with baby) loved relaxing with a magnificent view of the Hawkesbury river, lying on the lawn or playing badminton, and exploring this great property and surrounds on walks and drives. The house has all comforts&luxuries (incl foldable kid's cot)- yet with so much character, history and such a great location it makes it perfect for a recharging holiday! Definitely planning to come back!
