The cottage is a wonderful place to stay and the web site is very accurate (which is good to see). We had a wonderful time and met Sally the cat several times. Used the spas on 2 nights but our last night was a bit too smoky, from bushfires further west, to enjoy the outdoors. Also used the pool twice and the BBQ at the cottage twice.
We both have said that we would love to come back, possibly in winter to enjoy the fire and the hot spa.
We did not take the breakfast option so cannot comment on that and they also offer home cooked meals but again we did not take that option. There was milk and plenty of tea and coffee.
The only issue we had was that we found the mattress very hard which, for us, meant that we did not get the good sleep we were hoping for. Maybe a new mattress that is medium rather then firm or a mattress topper might solve the issue. We are aware that some people like firm mattresses but not us.
Plenty of cooking equipment and plates, etc. Will sleep 8 people but we found perfect of us as a couple.
Would love to return, possibly in winter to enjoy the fire and hot spa.
We stayed at the Coach hill cottage for a romantic weekend getaway. The cottage was quite high up, It had a private hot tub on the deck, overlooking beautiful scenery. The place was spotlessly clean and made to feel like home with all the little details such as the books, board games, candles, the little sculptures around the property. The owners Matthew and Tina left us heaps of eggs, bacon, butter, milk and cereal for breakfast as well as plenty of coffee, tea and chocolate. We were fortunate enough to meet Matthew and Sally the cat, who were absolutely lovely!! Unfortunately we did not meet Tina, but hopefully we will next time!! Thank you for an amazing relaxing and beautiful weekend!! Your property is absolutely stunning!!
Coach House Hill Cottage B&B Accommodation on the Hawkesbury River at Lower Portland New South Wales, Review of our mid-week short getaway.
To our hosts Matthew and Tina (and Sally the cat)
Off the road down the driveway pass the pond time disappears
Arrive park and stop as this is now reality not the dream
Hosts pamper and cater with pleasant delight and surprise
Vistas far mountains blue green tree hills red sunsets
Flowing river distance boats silhouettes dancing on wakes
Relax floating swimming waterfall soaking warm and cool
Wind howling from valley bending branches leafs flying
Nightly hot tub watching stars the moon and soaring bats
So close to Sydney yet silence only interrupted by nature
How can a place be so peaceful for the overstressed
You’ll never want to leave, we know a return is a must
Thankyou for a great stay we didn't want to leave.
Just returned from our relaxing four night stay at Coachhouse Hill Cottage. What a lovely property and beautiful place. The scenery is just stunning, overlooking the river from high above the ridge. We enjoyed our Gin & Tonics while watching the spectacular sunsets going down over the valley every evening.
The owners, Matthew & Tina are very friendly people and they looked after us really well. They supplied a huge breakfast hamper which was more than we could eat and everything was spotlessly clean.
The cottage is comfortable and has everything you need. We only used the queen bed in one bedroom but there is a second room and the sun room also has two day beds that can be used as four single beds if you have more people. But we loved it just with the two of us.
There is a private hot spa on your own deck outside the cottage which is nice to sit in and watch the valley views.
There is a beautiful swimming pool and covered cabana with BBQ and outdoor table setting, which is shared with the owners. Whilst the cottage also has its own BBQ on the deck.
We didn't leave the cottage but if you want to go and explore than there is plenty to do. The river is suitable for many water sports and the local markets at Windsor on Sunday are a treat.
Thank you Matthew & Tina, we look forward to seeing you again soon.
