Loved the quiet, relaxing atmosphere!

Our short stay was just wonderful! We loved the quiet, relaxing atmosphere – the river swimming hole was fantastic!
We were made to feel very welcome by our hosts Mel & Ian and found ‘Tilly Cottage’ to be a lovely place to stay.
We will definitely be back!

Extremely relaxing holiday!

Dear Ian, Melissa & Tilly,
Our family had an extremely relaxing holiday at the Grace Cottage. The river was immaculate and Ian’s farm walk was extremely enjoyable for the kids and adults! Thank you for being exceptional hosts and for loading the entire cottage with everything that we needed. The animals were very calm and let us feed them with minimal fuss. The eggs were scrumptious (thanks Tilly) and the entire holiday was an experience that we will never forget. Thanks again and we are happy to say that we will be back.

The accommodation is second to none!

Dear Ian, Mel, Tilly & Creatures Great & Small!
Thank you so much for your hospitality and for having us at your magnificent property. We all enjoyed swimming in the river and admiring the wildlife on this side of the Barrington’s. The grand kids loved feeding the animals and collecting Tilly’s chook eggs. Even though we only live on the western side of the Barrington’s, the change in scenery has given us a much-needed break. Your property certainly lives up to it’s motto of; “Lifestyle, Memories & Serenity”. We have made some lovely memories with our grand kids whilst staying here. We will be back for sure! The accommodation is second to none! Thank you so much folks.

Swimming hole exceeded expectations!

We really enjoyed our short stay. The cottage was clean & well presented. The swimming hole exceeded expectations and we enjoyed exploring the river. Ben loved feeding the goats, alpacas, chickens and bulls. We think the small red-haired bird by the river is a Scarlett Honeyeater! Unfortunately we missed seeing the platypus; maybe next time!

Thanks Mel & Ian for being great hosts and Tilly for educating Ben on feeding the animals.

Very comfortable and well-equipped!

Very comfortable and well-equipped cottage in an idyllic setting. The kookaburras dawn chorus was a particular highlight for a visitor from the UK.

Beautiful relaxing time!

We had a beautifully relaxing time here at Barrington Riverside Cottages. Thank you Mel, Ian, Tilly & the animals! We loved the tranquil riverside reading spots, the birds, floating downstream & meeting the chickens. Tilly, the eggs from your palace are delicious! Two days at your wonderful property and we are refreshed. We can tell you all love it here too & we wish you every happiness here! We’d love to visit again.

Peaceful surrounds of the natural environment!

Dear Ian, Mel, Grace & Tilly,
Thanks for enabling us to chill at your wonderful property! You are such warm and lovely hosts. Peaceful surrounds of the natural environment, the sounds of the rushing waters from the nearby Barrington river, the coolness of the fresh mornings and the interaction with the friendly animals makes for a great experience for city dwellers!

What a wonderful place to relax & recharge!

A beautifully appointed cottage with every comfort but the real star is the location! Such a quiet, peaceful & beautiful place.

We even think we saw a ‘platypus!’ Patting the animals is a lovely part of the experience. We were also impressed with the outdoor BBQ area & grateful to be sharing it with friends!

Favourite Cabin

Always a wonderful stay in these luxury cabins. Love swimming in the river with our dogs along and the walking trails, bird life and great hosts. We especially love the massive luxury camp kitchen and outdoor fire pit where the whole family can gather or meet if you book all the cabins. My fourth stay and I’ll be back.

“It was just so refreshing as well as relaxing and our little puppy had a marvelous time.”

Everything was just fine better than we had imagined. The quietness of the Barrington countryside and the facilities of the site . The hosts were fantastic and extremely hospitable which made our visit even more enjoyable.

Cosy Country Winter Stay

We enjoyed a lovely BBQ on the balcony watching a beautiful sunset. Room was extremely clean and very cosy for a winter stay. A true country stay ,loved the cows mooing in the distance as the sun went down. A very quiet stay. Perfect spot to visit the top of Barrington tops and Copeland walks.
