  • We looked at over 30 places around Sydney to celebrate a best friend’s Hen’s weekend away and decided upon Branwens Retreat as it looked like it had all the features we desired, and boy were we right! The house was everything we could have ever wanted and more. Such a beautiful, relaxing and comfortable place to celebrate such a special, important event in our lives. I am so glad we managed to find such a perfect location for a Hen’s weekend away!I have stayed in many self contained cottages nationally and internationally and I must say this was one of the best. The attention to detail made everything feel extra special; from the crisp, white linen to the pretty floral crockery to dine from.We will most definitely be recommending Branwens Retreat to friends and family!

  • Six of us stayed at Branwens for a girls’ weekend. It was a perfect spot for us. It is a lovely, comfortable place to sit and relax and catch up. The set up was great and really suited our needs. It’s a gorgeous cottage with a beautiful kitchen with all that we needed, and the breakfast provisions were great. We also were able to have a bed each. The location was far enough from things to feel like we got away, but close enough to meet our needs (shopping and food). This is a lovely place to escape to.

    Stayed at this stunning property for my hen’s weekend. Us girls never wanted to leave. The quaint cottage felt like a girls dream in a dolls house, surrounded by gorgeous country side and rolling hills. Had lovely decor and an awesome spa! Definitely would recommend any one to stay here can’t speak highly of Kate and the amazing accomodation. Pictures just don’t do this magical place justice!

  • We had a fantastic weekend here. Complete relaxation in a beautiful immaculately clean vintage homely house.The kitchen had everything you needed and Kate had left supplies for breakfast in the fridge. She was very welcoming when we arrived and after explaining how everything worked she left us to ourselves for the remainder of the weekend. We loved the hot tub and sitting on the veranda admiring the beautiful countryside. We stayed in the room upstairs and had a great nights sleep. I would definitely recommend this accommodation. ( Tips: We had takeaway from the Thai on the Friday which wasn’t that nice and they forgot part of our order. Wouldn’t recommend. We went wine tasting in Coolangata Estate and Two Figs Estate. We preferred Two Figs but both had very friendly welcoming staff.

    We are a couple who left for a brief weekend away from our large family and were so delighted with this beautiful ‘old-worldly decorated’ home (even though built only a few years back)- we were taken back in time, but did not feel deprived of all the comforts of today! We were thrilled with this haven – so many little extras provided for in the kitchen. Sleep was easy as it is whisper quiet, the bed super comfortable, you have to be there to experience the amazing views of the mountainous escarpments, especially from the outside jacuzzi at sunset! Don’t forget to turn the fountain on! Stop & smell the roses. Discover all the beautiful & amazing pieces in the home on display – you’ ll feel a sense of wonder. We would go back as this place is really gorgeous! The owner is really lovely. Visit the winery up the hill 🙂

  • Branwens is the most beautiful place we have ever stayed in – we all thoroughly enjoyed our visit. I don’t think that we could think of anything further to improve it. Our friends have stayed in some beautiful places but they said that Branwens was truly the most beautiful
