The Allyn Riverside Cabins
Reviewed 4 October 2012

The riverside cabin we stayed auited our brief 3 night stay (October 2012). We shared this with another couple who were also pleasantly surprised with the sauna and lovely Allyn River. One of us managed the swimming hole and a group crossed the road to climb the 45 min trail to overlook Barrington Tops. Not a terrible lot to do otherwise but that was never our concern. Make sure you have your shopping done before you arrive. Dungog is probably the best place to do this.

Reviewed 27 February 2012

We stayed at the Allyn Riverside Cabins for 3 nights in February 2012. We were in the Riverview Cabin which is set back 50 metres from the river with a lovely outlook. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return and probably stay a bit longer next time. We were looking for privacy, peace and tranquillity and we weren't disappointed. The two cabins, although quite close to each other, still offered privacy.

It was lovely listening to the sound of the river at night, and to wake up to the sound of abundant birdlife in the morning. It was warm during the day and comfortably cool at night. There are a couple of great swimming holes in the river and it was perfect weather for a swim - the water was clean and very refreshing.

The bed was very comfortable and we both slept well. It was great to escape the real world for a while and have a few days without the intrusion of TV, telephone and internet. We enjoyed playing scrabble, listening to music and relaxing in the spa.

We loved sitting on the deck, especially in the morning when the birdlife was buzzing around us. It was great to escape the busyness of life and all of its distractions and just 'be still' for a few days.

We went for a day trip into Chichester State Forest and Barrington Tops National Park. Mount Allyn lookout has awesome 360 degree views of the surrounding area and the walk through the rainforest to Burraga Swamp was surreal and offered some excellent photo opportunities. We briefly visited Ladies Well which looked like a great place to swim, but it was crowded with people staying at the nearby camp grounds and day trippers, so we decided that the swimming holes back at the property were a much better option.

We loved this place and will definitely return.

We recently stayed at The Allyn Riverside cabins for a long weekend getaway. We live in Newcastle NSW and it was a short trip but what a change of scenery. Being immersed in nature is fantastic. The property itself is made from wood. It has a very country feel to it with its log fire and log beams. The kitchen facilities are great and so are the nice touches like the cd player etc. the balcony overlooking the river was breathtaking.
All in all for a short break I really recommend this place. You will not be disappointed.
