Beautiful grounds and comfortable space. Only comments would be with the need for an extra fan in one of the bedrooms on very hot days.

Hello, Thanks so much for your review. We're glad you enjoyed the space and Kiwarrak grounds. We do have an extra pedestal fan that is stored in the cupboard upstairs. We'll be sure to mention it to future guests. We hope to welcome you back another time! Kind regards, Tara and Meg.

Spent a very relaxing afternoon and evening in the Bower Cottage at Kiwarrak Country Retreat. The grounds were lovely and the cottage was beautifully presented with everything you could possibly need as well as many thoughtful extras. Particularly enjoyed the spa and the log fire. We will definitely return.

Lovely peaceful location.

We spent a lovely weekend here. The staff were excellent and made sure we had everything we needed. The accommodation is very private and had everything, surrounded but trees.

Quiet and peaceful.

Pros: The cleanliness and the setting.
Well worth a visit, we wouldn’t hesitate to stay again. The spar was a real bonus, we were sad we weren’t able to stay for longer.

Away from everything

Pros: Seclusion
Location: Close to Taree but away from hustle and bustle
Excellent stay. Isolated but not far from anywhere. A perfect location. The gardens were wonderful and there was plenty of wildlife. The facilities were excellent and the rooms were very well appointed.

Quiet comfortable retreat.

Pros: Quiet, clean, spacious. Homey feel.
Location: 5 mins to Taree, 20 mins to Forster. Location great spot for a quiet get away, away from your normal busy life.
A beautiful, well maintained quiet place to stay. A fairy walk for the kids was a nice touch. Toys and books for the kids also made the kids day. Beautiful decor, and a lovely little find. I would definitely stay again.
