Incredible Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We adored our stay at Magnolia Cottage. It was incredibly relaxing and we never wanted to leave! Rosalind and Nick were great hosts gifting us with wine, bread, eggs and other local produce. We can't wait to return and spend another relaxing weekend away.

Beautiful gateway at Garden Hill

  • 5 of 5

Garden Hill is such an amazing place! I had such a memorable time here. My cottage was well furnished and very clean. Loved the nice sand stoned walls in the bedroom and the luxurious bath tub. There is even a tennis court and indoor swimming pool overlooking the gorgeous scenery and lush greenery. Homemade jams were also provided, the marmalade and strawberry jams were to die for!

Nick and Rosalind were so hospitable, welcoming and accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely be back again the next time we visit Cambewarra.

Gorgeous view and gardens

  • 4 of 5

Overall we really enjoyed our weekend stay. The Magnolia Cottage is very clean and the gardens are gorgeous and the tennis court is immaculate. However, there are a few things that could easily be improved.

The owner provides beautiful bread and fresh eggs but instant coffee, longlife milk and jams/honey in jars obvioulsy used by previous guests. Whilst this is possibly more economical, plunger or capsule coffees and small jars of jam would add to the quality of the experience. The welcome bottle of wine and chocolate are a lovely touch.

The spa bath is huge and clean. There are plenty of products to use ...but as they were not individual packages but family size bottles, it felt a bit like we were using someone else's bathroom.

The bedroom is adequate and the view from the bed just lovely but beware - if you are there on a windy night the doors bang and rattle - although we have brought this to the owner's attention. Also if the (friendly) gardener is out and about it is not very private and certainly noisy.

The pool looked lovely but it was too cold (outside) for us to use.

Finally note that Garden Hill Spa is about 15 minutes from Berry. It is closer to Nowra.
