Returned for a second time as our memories of the last stay were so wonderful. Fantastic cottages with everything you need. Location and views that have you relaxed as soon as you drive in the gates. Think this will be our regular getaway place. Might try the colder months next time to utilise the log heater.

Once a year my parents come to stay with us and my wife and I take advantage and have a night away kid free. This year we chose Yabbaloumba Retreat and what a good choice it was.

It's great you have enjoyed Yabbaloumba Retreat, but we are disappointed that the food outlet in Kenilworth was not up to standard. Next time you stay we would encourage you to order one of our meal packs. Guaranteed quality local food, that you can prepare yourself in the comfort and privacy of the cottage.
