It may be autumn but the days are still long and the nights still warm enough to spend some blissful time by the Barrington River near Gloucester New South Wales. Located on the high banks above The Steps rapids, this splendid bushland location offers you an escape to unspoilt river vistas and friendly wildlife.
Riverview Cottage at The Steps is a self-contained holiday home that can sleep up to 11 people in contemporary comfort. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, an open plan living area and fully equipped kitchen and laundry.
For relaxed al fresco meals, the covered deck overlooking the river is perfect for your outdoor entertaining, complete with table setting and barbecue ready for your long lunch. And if the nights turn chilly then the slow-combustion fireplace in the open plan living area will be the place for some fireside wine and conversation.
A landline telephone and TV gives you the technological comforts of home but you may be secretly pleased to know that your mobile phone will be 'out of range' ....perfect for helping you to turn off and tune in to the local wildlife and beautiful surroundings for something new.
This is a good value holiday destination, priced from $460 for a weekend getaway for a couple. But if you really want to bring the kids then they're from just $35 per night extra.
Bed linen and bath towels are included in the tariff as well as blankets and doonas.
Bedding configuration sleeps up to 11 people:
