Telegraph Retreat is an award winning rural retreat in the Port Macquarie hinterland. We have two romantic and private studio cottages and a larger family style house, all with their own outdoor spa. A stay at Telegraph Retreat is the ideal way to relax and refresh the body and mind - come and do nothing or enjoy the wide range of nearby activities such as mountain-biking, kayaking and all that Port Macquarie has to offer. Pamper yourself with massages, delicious dinners delivered to your cottage and our homebaked sourdough bread. Kids will have a great time too feeding the ducks, miniature cattle and goats, or collecting eggs from the chickens.

Thank you Melanie and Rod we had a lovely stay. The fresh flowers, fresh homemade bread, the comfy bed and the warm welcome by you both and the fireplace in the cottage. Small little homely touches in our cottage, we were not disappointed with our stay in the Gardenia Cottage.
