A superb property with a fascinating history located in an ideal spot,the gardens are beautiful bordered by a river, the standard of this property was amazing. Karen the host was excellent nothing being too much trouble for her,and constantly cared about your well being.
On our trip from Sydney Karen contacted us with information regarding the safety of roads following torrential rains. This was a very thoughtful gesture.
Our accommodation was beautiful. An historic cottage on the banks of a wonderful river. Vast garden area with beautifully kept garden beds.
Champagne, cake , chocolates, bread, eggs and a home full of wonderfully kept memorabilia awaited us.
Thank you for a most comfortable stay.

So gorgeous relaxing
Wonderful place to stay
We loved it, a very nice place to stay in Kangaroo Valley. Karen was great in welcoming and providing all the information we needed to get in and settled. There were some nice treats and bubbles to welcome us too. Nice location, gardens and pool.
A little slice of paradise
Hampden House is a wonderful stay. Far enough out of the village to avoid any crowds close enough to walk to for a Spiced Pumpkin Latte. As described, this 4 bedroom cottage is a slice of yesteryear, with a sprinkling of family heritage throughout. The private pool was a delight on a warm summers day, and the air conditioned interior was a wonderful escape from the flies!! Karens homemade Victoria Sponge with real cream was a wonderful treat on arrival and the weekend only got better from there.
We enjoyed our stay the house was very clean and accessible
I would definitely stay here agsin
