Once you have reached Gloucester, you will find a roundabout at the end of the main street (Church St). This then becomes Thunderbolt's Way or Park Street on some GPS devices. 

At the roundabout veer slightly left onto Thunderbolts Way (or Park St), going past a service station, over a small bridge and then the Bowling Club on the left.  Follow this road over the Gloucester River bridge, and you will be in the 60km zone.

On the right hand side is Barrington Outdoor Adventure Centre, 1.3kms from the roundabout.

The entrance to The Ridge is on the left, opposite the Barrington Outdoor Adventure Centre, there is a large white sign "The Ridge - Luxury Eco-Holiday Accommodation" and the street No. 135.

Enter this driveway and follow the road for a little over 1 km, past the shed and over the grid, veering to the left at the fork in the road and winding your way up the hill.

The Ridge is on top of the hill at the end of this road.

You are about to enter The Ridge Gloucester to begin your luxury rural escape holiday.  

This was the second stay at this absolutely amazing property and it won't be our last. What a great place to spend with the family, relaxing inside or enjoying a drink by the outdoor fire. Our little boy absolutely loved running around outside and inside with plenty of space to explore. The only problem was that we wanted to stay longer!5/5 by ,
Loved our stay, perfect house for our group of 10 people.5/5 by ,
The Ridge at Gloucester exceeded all expectations. We thought the property looked like a great place to stay on the website/stayz. When we got there - we found this incredible super modern spacious home perched high on ridge with a magical outlook. The property is immaculate - well stocked with everything you need - beautiful linen/towels/toletries - sparkling clean and perfect for large groups and families. This property has a fantastic fire pit with great seating which lent itself to long relaxing nights with the whole group in front of the fire. Many thanks to the Prices for making our stay so easy and comfortable. The Gardiner/Allen & Potter families.5/5 by ,
We have just returned from a relaxing weekend stay at the Ridge. We were a group of 12 and I can say we were all comfortably accommodated. The property is really beautiful and peaceful. It's clean and the sense of space is great with multiple seating areas both indoor and outdoor.We also managed an easy walk from the property into Gloucester Farmers Market on the Saturday morning.To the delight of the kids and adults there are wallabies and kangaroos which are close to the house.Bev is extremely helpful and easy to deal with. We will definitely be back.5/5 by ,
The Ridge was the perfect property for our extended family getaway. There was ample space and the hosts accommodated the extra children in spare beds and cots. The kitchen was very well equipt with everything that we needed. We enjoyed a lovely bushwalk over the mountain behind the property, plus we spent many hours relaxing in the large spacious indoor and outdoor living areas. Thanks for offering such a wonderful place to escape. We will be back for sure!5/5 by ,
