I booked and paid for accommodation here during the Xmas break through Stayz. The booking was confirmed and my money taken swiftly but from then on I could not contact Iain to get directions, confirm which lodge I was in or how to gain access. His daughter said he’d gone away!!! Needless to say we didn’t make the drive from Sydney. Stayz could not contact him either and said they will be sending him a warning. I’ll be charging the costs back through my bank. Sounds like the previous owners were great but this clown should not be in business.AVOID.

Awesome place to visit, with tonnes of relaxation and downtime on offer. The property has a lot on offer, although does need a bit of maintenance, which the really nice new owners seem to be working on. The cottage was great and offered all we needed. The outdoor bath was A++!

This place is truly a hidden gem, my husband & I enjoyed a much needed weekend away in the Blue Wren Cottage. We were welcomed by the lovely hosts and felt at home straight away. Our cottage was wonderful; fully equipped, cosy and clean with the log fire to relax by. Our courtyard set in the bush located on the side of a hill overlooking the valley with our private two person spa the highlight for us to relax and spend the cold winter evening in. The breakfast basket & loaf of fresh home baked bread was scrumptiously enjoyed. The game room was fun with a game of pool or darts, we also got the chance to feed the animals and canoe around the river. This is a must visit place for couples to getaway and spend some quality time away from the hustle and bustle of the everyday life. Thank you Iain & Issaya we will certainly be back soon

My partner and I stayed in Blue Wren over two nights. It was a perfect combination of romance, relaxation and peaceful. Beautifully placed up in the bush with an outdoor spa under the stars was breathtaking. Diane is a great host with yummy breakfasts and FRESH BAKED BREAD daily. Highly recommend, we will be back.

Nestled amongst the trees, overlooking a serene valley with the river in their backyard, wonderful birds and animals, where the only sounds are of the birds and bees and the occasional bikers zooming through the hills close by. Located close to Bob Turners trail inside the Wollemi National Park - a wonderful and mildly challenging trail to the upper reaches of river Colo. We stayed at the Lyrebird Lodge - a superb self contained cottage with a verandah overlooking valley. The breakfast, which was part of our stay, was fresh and hearty consisting of eggs from the farm and hot loaf of bread baked by our lovely host Diane, amongst other things. With the nearest town, Windsor being 20km away, we had requested pizza for dinner on one night and Jim and Diane made us the most amazing vegetarian pizza in their wood fired oven and this was followed by the most awesome dessert pizza of warm apples & cinnamon with custard and vanilla ice cream!! Thank you Diane & Jim for making our stay at Ossian Hall so memorable. We will always cherish your warm hospitality and wonderful company. :)
