We had organised to go to Albany this weekend but that was postponed at last minute! We were in the mood as it were to go away so we booked in York. Mind you, after seeing the temperatures forecast - 38C, we maybe should have reconsidered! However, Sophie’s retreat, a self contained cottage in Hillside Country Retreat has proved delightful. All mod cons and most importantly effective air conditioners, it has been fun and as a bonus we bought the dog👍. The owner was very prompt in her replies and made us feel most welcome. I would happily recommend this place and may even return in canola/wildflower season.

We booked two houses and one smaller unit for my husband’s birthday. We were greeted by the host, Joy, on our arrival. She was delightful and had included a couple of little surprises in our house to make the birthday weekend extra special. The houses are perfectly set up for sharing meals and games. We had three generations staying for the weekend and everyone enjoyed it. Our dogs loved the weekend away too! We had lunch and morning teas in York, all within walking distance. We will definitely be back.

Perfect getaway location for couples or family in York in a lovely peaceful setting. As a couple we choose a room for 2 which was clean, with a comfortable bed and had all you want for a short stay. We had breakfast in the package and were treated to a perfect delicious spread by our host Joy. Thanks Joy we had a perfect stay.

This place is a wonderful find. 2 families and 2 furry kids stayed in the Julian cottage. Joy who owns the property is a lovely host, who met us at the cottage and showed us around, and even had the fire going when we arrived! The cottage was gorgeous, clean and had everything we needed. Plenty of room for two families, with four bedrooms, the 8 of us were very comfortable. The kids loved exploring on their bikes and the dogs had a ball! York township is not far and walking distance, lots to explore and plenty of eating out options as well. We had a wonderful time and looking forward to going back again. Definitely 5 stars!
