A beautiful place to stay. the cottages are extremely well appointed, clean, comfortable and spacious. The gardens, pool and surrounds are really well maintained and the cottages well spaced away from each other for privacy. The breakfast hamper, cheese platter, port, and daily croissants with all the other little touches made for a perfect few days. Michael our host was friendly, helpful, welcoming and accommodating but never in your face. Thankyou.

Room Tip: We stayed in Rosella cottage which was very peaceful.

An ideal romantic getaway. The staff are exceptionally friendly and accommodating. The facilities are clean and it is so peaceful. The service is remarkable and we will definitely be back. We would highly recommend Narrow Escapes.

This is the perfect place for a romantic getaway, we had the most wonderful weekend and will definitely be back. What more could you want? Food hampers, cheese platters, wine and a roaring fire (mixed with time spent relaxing in the spa or on the deck). After a day of doing not too much the bedroom was wonderfully warm and comforting and the beds absolute heaven.
Would recommend dinner at the local pub that provide a shuttle to and from and were all too happy to accommodate my partner's food allergies.
We could of spent the weekend without seeing another soul, relaxing in each others company and the luxury of this retreat.

We were lucky enough to enjoy two nights at this fabulous rainforest retreat recently. The service that we received from hosts Karen and Michael was first class. The cabin was beautifully presented and we loved all the little romantic touches that they left for us like candles, chocolates and port. The bed was so comfortable that we had a great night's sleep and awoke to the sounds of the rainforest birds singing which was magical. The breakfast basket was generously stocked with local bacon, free range eggs, homemade jam, etc. Michael even delivered freshly baked croissants to our cabin! A wonderful 'escape' that has left us feeling refreshed and recharged.

We just spent two glorious nights at Narrows Escape.

This was our first foray into the mountains for a romantic break. As it was a gift given to us by someone who had previously stayed at the retreat on two separate occasions, we were sure we were in for a treat. However, we were completely blown away by the atmosphere, facilities and the hosts who made this an extremely memorable experience.

Champagne on the deck, meals arriving in hampers, fresh croissants each morning, in-house massages and a two person spa made this a truly relaxing and romantic escape.

Our hosts, Karen and Michael, are hospitality professionals. They are expert at gauging their visitors needs and level of one-to-one contact. We are very social by nature, so being able to interact with our hosts enhanced our stay. However, to those guests wishing to "disappear" into the tranquillity of the retreat, the deliveries of food and supplies would appear as it by magic.

We also took advantage of the massage service from Angela and her team at Touch of Power. A perfect way to wind down and relax at their expert hands.
