"You,camping?!!" your friends may exclaim incredulously as did ours when we told them we were going to spend three days,including New Year's Eve,by the banks of the Clyde River in a tent.Well let me reassure you this was no ordinary tent,and certainly no ordinary campsite. The whole experience at The Escape is conducive to just that,escape.Escape from the noise and hustle and bustle of the city to be replaced by the sounds of kookaburras and bell birds,among many others I couldn't name,lush green bush,towering eucalypts,mobs of kangaroo and of course the cooling,serene waters of the river.You sleep in oh so comfortable beds cocooned in your "tent". You have an adjacent well appointed bathroom and a deck to relax on.And of course you have Colin and his friendly,helpful team to

This is just a wonderful place to stay. We stayed three nights in the studio. It is spacious with a great view towards the river. The deck is an excellent place to sit and watch the birds or read. Colin, Lucille and Tammy are wonderful hosts. The meals were outstanding, we thoroughly enjoyed every meal. Kayaking is wonderful along the river. A fabulous three nights. We will be back.

As an anniversary and birthday long weekend, we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home and absolutely looked after. The luxury tent and bathroom were beautifully appointed and provisioned, whilst not taking away from the natural beauty of the river bank. We took advantage of the stand up paddle boards and swimming spots, plus a hike to a look out. The indulgence package was a perfect treat - massage, with champagne and chocolates! The food is amazing - Colin has an amazing ability to serve up beautiful local produce, and his cooking is enough of a drawcard before even considering the stunning setting!! Colin, Lucille and Tammy - thank you for such a memorable weekend. You have achieved such a perfect balance of untouched rural beauty,

Thank you Col and Lucille for making my birthday and anniversary so special, especially for making my favourite cake. We love what you have created so much, The Escape is such an amazing place to visit. The location next to the river was stunning, the food was fantastic, we wish we could've stayed for longer than 2 nights. We will most definitely be visiting again and have been telling all our friends and family to go enjoy a relaxing stay with you when they can. Best wishes, Matt (Sorry for the belated review, thank you for having us back in Feb)

We have just returned from 3 of the most relaxing nights of our life. Quite often places do not live up to expectation, but " The Escape " exceeded all ours. We were given a very warm and friendly welcome from Col and Lucile ( and Billie, Coco and Pepper ), and made to feel special right from the start. We stayed in the "Studio", positioned with a great view of the River, and well appointed. We could sit outside on our veranda, or inside on the day bed, watching the abundant wildlife outside our room. Then there is the food, Col treats you to fine dining, breakfast , lunch and 3 course dinner, clever use of local produce and amazing flavours, all served in a relaxed very friendly atmosphere on the balcony of the main dining area. There is an excellent wine selection also. Then
