We stayed for three nights in a cabin for our 'babymoon', and it was fantastic. The setting of the cabin was perfect...it felt so secluded and in the woods yet was only 5minutes drive to some great cafes and restaurants. The cabin had everything we needed and the log fire kept us nice and warm in the chilly evenings. We...

We stayed for Mother's Day weekend. My husband and I and our 3 adult children as well as my daughters boyfriend. The room was cosy and quant. The owners were so sweet they had the porch light on and the gas heater going as we didn't arrive until after 7pm it was just like arriving home. The rooms are very...

I had such a brilliant weekend in Blackheath with my little family. We stayed in a Pine Lodge and it was just perfect. My 5 year old loved the lodge and the games room on site. We wanted to go int he heated pool but run out of time. The accommodation was tidy with really top quality linen, comfy beds...

Lovely gardens, great staff. Good tips for where to visit. Lots of room. Clean and well looked after. Facilities for kids particularly were great. The only negative is that there was no wifi which to our kids was a tragedy as the phone internet was also very weak to nil due to the location. That would be a good addition.

Whilst we do have free WiFi available for our guests to use in and around our Reception area I can appreciate that it must have been a 'tragedy' for your kids not to have access to it in...

I stayed in one of the cabins (Possums Hideaway). It was secluded and peaceful and very comfortable. It is fully self contained and has everything you need for a relaxing stay. I loved the cost log fire and the fact that you can curl up and watch a DVD, have a spa bath, cook your own food or go for...

It was lovely to meet you Louise and we are pleased you found your stay with us relaxing. Curling up in front of the log fire watching a DVD is just the thing on these cool Autumn nights after a day of bush walking and exploring the Blackheath village. We look forward to welcoming you back again.

We had an wonderful time. We were three different generations and we all enjoyed everything at Federation Gardens & Possums Hideaway. We aged from 2 years to 53 years and everyone had fun. We played tennis, cricket and we cooked marshmallows on the great bonfire. We could not have asked for a nicer place for family time. Thank you.

Possums Hideaway cabins were lovely. Backing on to bushland, the cabin was cosy with good facilities and small but serviceable kitchenette. It is well positioned for walks in the area and made for a great long weekend stay.
