A beautiful location on the Hawkesbury River, this was the first & only venue we visited and knew right away it was where we wanted to get married. Anna was extremely in the lead up and on the day, there were so many props to choose from to decorate the venue and there were so many great locations on the property to take photos. Hiring the house for onsite accommodation was convenient and allowed us to enjoy the entire weekend with our family. We had such a great time and so many of our guests commented on what a stunning venue we chose.

Fantastic spot with great locations for ceremony, reception and photo opportunities on the river and around the retreat. Great accommodation on site that is pet friendly. Owner very friendly, relaxed and easy going, however they were slow to return the bond. They were both very flexible to meet our needs and helped tremendously on set up. Perfect day!
