Beautiful house garden and views

  • 5 of 5

Apart from getting lost trying to find the house, our stay was superb. The house is cosy, well appointed, warm and attention to detail was amazing. The Garden is a real gardeners garden and wonderful to walk around with morning coffee in hand! We will return for a yearly family pilgrimage,and if you're considering selling, we would love to be notified!

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 4 night stay here. The house is very well setup and offers a peaceful escape in rural surroundings with lots of birdlife to sit and watch from the fantastic scenic window looking down tot he coast. It is surrounded by lovely gardens and close to Deep Creek National Park. It is off-grid with a wood heater but very comfortable even in the depths of winter.

Comfy, cosy and quiet

  • 5 of 5

What an absolute gem of a property! We spent our mornings hiking in the park and returned to the warm and cosy house to rest our weary bones. The house had everything we needed, comfy beds, plenty of firewood, beautiful views, a stunning garden, books galore - gave us a chance to enjoy the quiet and relax. The owners are wonderful and helpful - we will definitely be back.

Holiday to remember!

  • 5 of 5

We adored the Deep Creek Retreat at Delamere. The house was so stylishly designed and perfectly clean . The children were treated with surprise gifts ! The view of Kangaroo Island was great to relax by with wine, books , games and guitar tunes . The garden was an adventure to explore and magnificent bird life to see. Close to everything but a perfect oasis for restorative time. Ian and Sandra were fantastic to communicate with. A peaceful retreat and we not forget it. Counting down the days as a family till we stay again !

A delightful place to unwind

  • 5 of 5

We were enthralled by the natural beauty of the cottage and it's surroundings. Special little touches were found throughout to entice visitors, and to encourage complete relaxation at a 'home away from home' environment! We loved every minute of peace & serenity, allowing moments to pause and unwind from our busy lives. Plenty of room for two couples; we could of stayed for a week comfortably.
