The Cottage

Ribbonwood Retreat has been designed to create a holiday home and rural retreat which enhances the sense of connection with the inherent beauty of the surrounding landscape. The cottage has an open plan living, dining and kitchen area which is great for sociable evenings around the dining table or you can spill out onto the deck to enjoy a BBQ on a beautiful summer’s evening. If you feel more like a quiet, relaxing evening we have a 42” widescreen televsion, DVD & CD player and a small selection of DVD’s, books, board games and toys for the kids. Bring your own laptop or ipad and you can connect to the internet free via our wireless broadband. The kitchen has a gas stove, electric oven, large fridge-freezer and dishwasher (no microwave) and is fully equipped to cater for groups. We have a separate bathroom (shower only) and toilet. The laundry area has a washing machine and inside and outside drying facilities but no tumble dryer. There is a two-bay carport, ample space for additional cars, boats or trailers and we can also provide grazing for your horses if necessary. Please enquire about bringing your pets, as we have a pets ‘outside only’ policy and a smoking ‘outside only’ policy.

Ribbonwood has three separate bedrooms and an open plan space upstairs which can be used as a second lounge for the kids, a yoga space or a fourth bedroom. Bedroom One, on the ground floor, is a twin or super king double and has a feeling of being nestled in the trees and bushes outside. Bedroom Two, has two single beds which can convert to a king size bed. Upstairs, Bedroom Three has a queen bed and a stunning view of the huge gum trees that surround the cottage. The upstairs lounge, or Bedroom Four, has a king size sofa bed which can be pulled apart to create two single beds, and also has a stunning view. We have a portacot and two additional mattresses available so please contact Sue or Runar, who are just next door, about these or any other items you may need. Bed linen and towels are provided free on lets of one week or more, otherwise they can be supplied at an additional cost. See our Rates page for more details.
