As soon as we arrived to "the escape" we were greeted by Col who was so relaxed and hospitable, We felt at home straight away. He showed us around and we were gob smacked by how incredible this place is. We stayed in the studio for the weekend and it was the most amazing experience. 5 star meals cooked for breakfast lunch and dinner, great range of wine and beer, cosy fire place for a perfect winter dining experience. This place is the perfect way to put the phone down (no reception 👌🏽) , be one with nature, take in the tranquil atmosphere and spend quality time with your partner. We truly felt so relaxed after 2 nights there. Magical place, we will definitely go back.

We were welcomed on our arrival by Lucille and Finn, who immediately made us feel at home. The tent was very comfortable, we slept well every night. Finn, 7, was fantastic with our 5 year old son Cameron and they had a great time playing together and eating dinner together. After dinner Lucille would often take them off to the camp fire so we could enjoy an adults dinner. This was much appreciated and very relaxing for us! Colin's 3 course gourmet dinners as well as breakfasts and lunches were superb. Eating such fabulous food with a beautiful outlook over the river was a real highlight. Staying at the Escape was the highlight of our NSW holiday, it was like staying at a mate's house - if your mate was a top notch chef and you never have to help with the washing up! Lucille,

Looking for a place to spend our 30th wedding anniversary that ticked all the boxes seemed impossible until I found 'The Escape'. Luxurious accommodation in a tranquil private setting, lots of outdoor activities close by with all meals catered - and not too far for us to drive. The Escape lived up to all expectations. The studio was very comfortable and well set out with a lovely view of the river and the sunrise. The location was beautiful with the Clyde River providing a tranquil backdrop for kayaking and SUPing. Colin and Lucille (and Finn) were excellent hosts, ensuring that all our needs were looked after and making us feel totally at home. Colin took extra time to ensure that our dietary requirements were looked after while still providing AMAZING meals. I can't rave

My husband and I stayed in one of the tents for 4 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The tent was very spacious, clean and had a sensational view over the river. All you could hear were the wind in the trees and birds chirping - pure relaxation! The main dining / living area is very tastefully decorated and a wrap-around veranda with various seating areas invites to chill out and read a book or just sit to enjoy the stunning view. Colin and Lucille were the perfect hosts and the food was just to die for! All in all we had the most wonderful time and can only recommend the experience.

If you are reading this review you are considering an escape at 'the escape;' there is no need to hesitate, just email Colin and book! This place is an absolute dream; the food is impecable with a wine list to match, the accomodation cannot be flawed, the scenery and location speak for themselves (photo below) and the hosts make this venue an experience not just a stay. We are already plotting our next escape to 'the escape.'
