Relaxing and peaceful
Great spot to getaway to recharge the batteries.
A beautiful place to relax and unwind!
I would happily give Wigley Retreat more than 5* if that were possible! My partner and I were in great need of a complete break for the weekend, and we found it in the pure relaxation and tranquility at Wigley. Elspeth and Graham were so thoughtful - we arrived very late in the evening to find music softly playing, our bedroom warm, chilled bubbly in the fridge and fresh bread on the table (plus the friendly dog, Sophie waiting calmly outside!) We couldn't see the Murray until we woke up in the morning which was such a treat to see the view for the first time during the spectacular sunrise light (an absolute must staying here).
We did a small amount of exploring in the local area, buying some groceries in Barmera and picking up some wine at Banrock Station, and there is clearly lots to explore and do should you wish. Otherwise, we spent 3 completely lovely days reading in the swinging chairs watching the world go by, or kayaking along in the river in the early morning mist. Elspeth and Graham were readily contactable if needed, and Graham kindly dropped some fire wood off to use despite it being a late request, but otherwise we hardly saw a soul.
My partner never likes going to the same place twice, but he already been trying to find excuses to book Wigley Retreat again. Worth every penny and more - treat yourself!
Juliet, thank you for your beautiful review. You did exactly what is required at Wigley Retreat, relax, restore and unwind. Graham and I love sharing our historic piece of paradise on the river with our wonderful guests. Do hope your partner changes his preferences and decides to return to Wigley Retreat.
