Excellent location for numerous fun activities for family and young people too. Could not believe the value for money, lovely check in even being early with really helpful staff and wonderful cabins which are very spacious. We used the facilities such as the swimming pool which was amazing and making memories around the fire pit rooms where the rules state...

It is great to read that you followed our fire pit rules by making family memories - that is exactly what our fire pit is all about! We look forward to your return visit.

Beautiful grounds, very friendly staff and excellent accomodation. We had the best night around the fire Pitt and BBQ with the family. The location is bang on for seeing all the popular sites in blue mountains. The cottages are very spacious and comfortable and we will be back here 100%!

The whole weekend was superb; the location, the pool, volleyball and tennis courts, fire pit and to top it off, the cabins; they...

Thank you for your words. It was lovely to host your stay - and lovely to hear the hum of your guitar playing around the open fire pit on Saturday evening - such a nice way to spend time with your family. Also it was music to our ears to hear on your departure that you are planning a return...

My boyfriend & I visited this lovely property for a last minute weekend away in November. After an extremely tough week for my partner and I, this place was the perfect escape - quiet, relaxing and so beautiful!

When it comes to a getaway in the blue mountains, one thing that isn't in short supply is a place to stay. But when I escape to the blue mountains I want to ESCAPE...a cabin that is secluded in the bush but still conveniently located to Blue Mountain attractions, has a fire place, comfy bed and a spa...Federation Gardens couple...

Lovely place to stay, comfortable and well-appointed cabin (very clean!), lots to do at the property and in the surrounding area. Loved the little touches like fire turned on before we arrived and a packet of marshmallows for the fire-pit! The staff were super friendly and helpful!

Our cabin had a lovely setting in amongst the trees. It was very spacious and well appointed. Loved having our own wood burning stove. The breakfast pack was generous and well worth the extra expense. Great place to relax.

Perfect for us. The 2br villa had lots of room, heater was pre-turned on, the kids called it 'luxury'. The facilities are well resourced but in that relaxed rather than ultra modern way - which suited us. Hand fed the local parrots, took a nice swim, kids had fun in the games room, even the marshmallows provided in room (for...
