This is truly one of the best retreats to sit back and relax, unwind and just let the world go by. Bill and Pip certainly have created a great spot on the south coast. It is very private and the setting in the bush is wonderful. This was our 5th time back and each time has been great and we...

My wife and I stayed for three days at Bawley Bush cottages at the beginning of November 2013. This was our third visit to this delightful and restful venue. There is something about the location with its bush land setting adjacent to a lake which immediately summons up peace and tranquillity and is ideal for anyone who is seeking to...

These cottages have a lot going for them, but a bit more attention on the maintenance side would make them really excellent The location is just wonderful if you like the bush and have a car. Our cottage looked over a huge mowed area going down to a strip of trees with the lake beyond. Sitting in front of the...

As owners we very much appreciate your comments both positive and negative and we especially acknowledge you for leaving a maintenance list. We won't be returning from our overseas trip until the end of May 2013 but we are disappointed that you found unaddressed maintenance issues that were annoying enough to comment on and that must have been overlooked by...

We stayed here at the Bawley Bush Cottages for two nights over the weekend. We chose the Chef's Cottage. We have stayed at many 4 - 5 star hotels before and was amazed when we first opened the door to our cottage - it was absolutely stunning! For the price we paid, it was immaculate and LARGE! It was honestly...

Every owner would loves to receive reviews like this and we are delighted Sandra F and partner enjoyed their stay so much they put were moved to write a TA review. However as an owner-partner I point out to readers that the reviewer's heading describing us as a "5-star retreat" is happy-customer over-statement and not describing our actual rating. We...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are an eco-retreat on 36 lakeside acres just 3km by car or 20 mins by kayak to beautiful south coast beaches. We have extensive grounds and forest and lakeside bushwalks. We have 5 (sometimes 6) self-contained cottages that sleep from 2 to 10 people, a luxury caravan (for 2) and a function room capable of catering for sit down events of up to 100 people. We are the perfect wedding destination. ... more   less
