What an incredible retreat! Col, Lucille, Finn, Bonnie, Pepper & Coco were the perfect hosts. We just came back from 3 nights and could have stayed forever. Not only are the location and settings stunning, but every little detail is so well though through. The craftsmanship of the "tents" and their adjacent bathrooms are second to none. This is a truly luxurious experience in the middle of nature's garden. Col's cooking is consistently exquisite. Incredible fresh local produce and prepared to perfection. If you are thinking about booking some time at The Escape, do not hesitate.

This was the second visit for Judy and myself, last time we stayed in the Studio, this time we "roughed it " in a tent. Quite often a return visit does not live up to the first stay. So wrong with the Escape. Once again this place was absolutely brilliant. Colin and Chris ( Billie, Coco and Pepper ) gave us a warm welcome. The tent was all luxury, with fabulous view of the river, so relaxing. Once again Cols meals where fine dining at its best, and Chris supplied warm and friendly service, at all times we felt welcome . The wine selection is also first class. Went kayaking , even caught a few fish, but mostly spent the 3 nights , including new years eve sitting on the balcony of our tent. Will definitely be back, Love the place....

If you are thinking of booking your Escape here, please stop thinking and just go for it!! I wish I could rate our experience at The Escape higher than 5, it was absolutely spectacular. The view is phenomenal and the hosts; Colin and his wife are so helpful and accommodating. Colin cooks all the meals himself and they are better than any of the Masterchef dishes I’ve ever seen. So delicious! Oh and their super friendly dogs will guide you through the bush walks around the property and might join you in kayaking too! Best weekend away so far. Thank you for having us Colin, we will be back soon!

2 nights at 'The Escape' wasn't enough. Fantastic food, a genuine warm welcome and hosts who strike the right balance - happy to chat but also knowing when to leave you to enjoy this magic place in peace. Loved kayaking along the river and a massage is a must! Fabulous 2 days.
