Thistledown Country Retreat

Thistledown Country Retreat is framed by the grandeur of Mount Barney with its magnificently appointed guest spaces.

Tucked away in private gardens is Thistledown Cottage which is ideal for two and accommodates four. Complimentary breakfast is provided for the first two days. It is fully self-contained with a spa bathroom, cosy fire-lit lounge, one double and one twin share bedroom. It also has a verandah and a deck with outdoor settings and a barbecue to help you enjoy the majestic view of Mt Barney. Guests can play and relax with a game of boules or croquet.

High Tea is available in the Rose Garden and/or guests may come inside to the Homestead to enjoy a sumptuous Federation style decor from a bygone era. Here they can dress up for a candlelit or ‘themed’ dinner served with delicious food and wine.

In this peaceful and restorative setting, the hosts also offer life coaching and residential life focus retreats.

Thistledown Country Retreat is a perfect getaway for that; Romantic occasion; Anniversary, Birthday, Honeymoon, Friend and Family reunions or simply recharging your batteries.
