Fabulous country retreat.

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful pastoral outlook. Character cottage tastefully redecorated with everything you need. Cassandra is an exceptional host who delivers a chocolate surprise, lights the logfire and keeps it burning if you decide to dine downtown. With only a few cows for neighbours, the serenity is soothing.

Beautifully presented and great detail.

  • 5 of 5

Milton Country Retreat is a beautifully presented property with all visitors need for a great getaway. Great detail in requirements, such as all required kitchen utensils, extra blankets and pillows. Toys and games for kids and adults alike. Firewood, kindling and firelighters for the wood burner. Flower petals and chocolates on arrival were a great touch. Instructions for a smooth arrival and quick settle in.

We will definitely come back and visit the beautiful South Coast. Milton Country Retreat offered comfortable accommodation and a touch of luxury for a great price.

Peaceful private location, charming accommodation with stunning views.

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful location from which to discover Milton and surrounds. Accommodating, friendly and attentive hosts ...even providing scrumptious chocolate platter on arrival. Nice touch. Hayshed cottage has charming 'rustic' exterior with cosy clean interiors offering most creature comforts. Only suggestion is take the SUV as drive from main road to property is a bumpy unsealed one!

Highly recommend - was perfect accommodation for our book club getaway. Thank you for helping make our stay an enjoyable one.

A wonderful property located away from the madding crowd deep in rural New South Wales.

  • 5 of 5

The venue was clean and tidy with all the little touches that make a house a home. The Kitchen was well appointed and lacked for nothing, there was milk, sugar, coffee and tea and even pancake mix. The chocolate platter was a work of art for the eyes and the taste buds. The bed comfy the fire warming and easy to use with plenty of firewood. Heaps of room and really a delight. My wife and I stayed only one night while travelling on business but we definitely plan on coming back for a longer stay.
