"Exceptional" Clarendon Forest Retreat is a secluded property not to far away from civilisation. It was so quiet and peaceful, a place where you could totally relax in your own spa and the pool or try your hand at mountain biking or trail walking. Our lodge was clean and comfortable, the kitchen was fully stocked with all your cooking utensils, plates, bowls, platters, pots and pans. We will definitely be going back. Loved loved loved it..

“Secluded and luxurious, immaculately kept with beautiful views. Great romantic escape.” The Hideaway at Clarendon Forest is the perfect secluded getaway! Everything about the experience gets 5 stars: the ease of check in (Dom and Nick) are so lovely and relaxed, the Hideaway is remote and feels like our own little property, the spa and outlook onto the creek are beautiful, even when it rains. I love this place, and will return whenever I can.
