We have been talking about a getaway to Barrington Hideaway for quite a while and we finally did it. What an amazing place, we stayed in Dilgry Cottage. The cottages are well equipped with a great outdoor area and barbecue. We spent a beautiful afternoon sitting on the deck and checking out the river. There is a wonderful walk along the river, unfortunately we didn’t see a platypus. We ordered a BBQ hamper which was so delicious. We also had a breakfast hamper which was also yummy. We loved everything about it. Sue was a delight. We can’t wait to go back.

Spent a few nights here in one of the beautiful cottages called Kerripit. The cottage was very clean and spacious and because of the very cold days we encountered, the warmth from the air-conditioner was welcome. The cottage was 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom and with 3 adults it was easily big enough. The furniture and bedding was comfortable and we appreciated everything the kitchen contained down to the full sized fridge and microwave. The cottages sit right on the river and it was just so relaxing for us Sydney folk. Booking experience to checking in was very unobstrusive and it was good to know that Sue wasn't far away should we have any questions. Mum loved the gift of jam also - so thank you. Our only little request is possibly a light over your sign at the front gate at night just so we can find our way back home easier !! Had a great time though - thank you and would definately recommend.

We had a wonderful 2 nights here with our two teenagers. The cabin was very comfortable but the the spot to be is sitting on the deck with a cup of coffee looking out over the gums and the river. Sue and Peter were very thoughtful hosts - the pre-booked breakfast hamper was lovely, and we also enjoyed the barbecue for dinner. There was plenty of great birdlife around (we saw around 30 different birds) and the short river walk was beautiful. We left with very fond memories of our stay.

Totally organised by hubby, our 2 night stay at Barrington Hideaway River Cottages was a dream! In the words of Darryl Kerrigan, “how’s the serenity”... there was an abundance of it. Sitting on the verandah or river bank, taking in the landscape and listening to the wildlife was beautifully simple and calming. We loved the fact there was no wifi - a great opportunity to unplug and decompress. Sue was easy to deal with; her written communication was prompt and easy to follow. Finding the cottages was simple, even in 9:45pm darkness! We appreciated the hearty breakfast supplies and stretched them out with our own staples. Preparing & cooking meals was easy in the well stocked kitchen and I was thankful for the full size hair dryer and luxurious body products. We were proud to spend our tourist dollars in this region. The area is very dry. Primarily beef & dairy cattle, it seems some locals are doing it tough. The red earth is held together by yellowed vegetation. The Barrington River is low and other water sources are bone dry. Pops of colour are scarce, but remarkable among xanthous hues. There is such beauty in the harshness of the rural environment, but this comes at a price for those who choose to make their living off the land. Please visit this beautiful region and support those that support our nation! Barrington Hideaway Cottages are a perfect base for exploring the region.

My husband & I were gifted a night away from the kiddies & what a great place they sent us to! The drive is stunning & not far from our home at Salamander Bay. On arrival there was no checking in, which we loved, the cabin was clean & had everything we needed for a relaxing night! Town was close enough that we ducked out for a nice (quiet without our toddlers!) Dinner and returned to movies in the warm cabin! We needed some assistance in the morning & Carol arrived with hubby in minutes! The river is gorgeous, the cabin is great & the service/supplies are all great quality, right down to the best shower head ever!! 1 tip though, warn guests of the electric fence haha, i read the booklet after the fact, my husband found it hysterical though so no point deducted for my silliness! Thanks so much for providing such a great getaway location, we will certainly be back, with or without the kiddies :) Oh & thank you so much for the much appreciated late check out!
