About the property

Barrington River House is framed by over 432 acres of visually stunning farmland in the Barrington River Valley, New South Wales.

Built in the early 2000’s the house is modern in style yet rests harmoniously in the beautiful rural surroundings. The House enjoys a breathtaking outlook over working farms. Sit on the verandah, listen to chattering birds and enjoy the spectacular backdrop of the magnificent Bucketts Mountain Range.

Relax around the salt water inground pool in the warmer weather or curl up in front of the slow combustion fire in winter. All year round, the House provides an exclusive escape into the heart of the countryside.

Canoeing, hiking, mountain biking, horse-riding, fishing, tennis and golf are all nearby. Fifteen minutes in a car takes you to the historic Gloucester town center, with cafès, pubs, museums and parks as well as extremely friendly locals.


On site - bush walking, catch and release fishing in the dam (the large dam has just been stocked with Australian bass and Silver Perch fingerlings) swimming in the salt water pool, swimming in the Barrington River

Off site - within a 10 minute drive - kayaking, canoeing, mountain biking, white water rafting, abseiling. Within a 30 minute drive - horse riding trails thought the Barrington Tops.

Our stay at Barrington River Houser

  • 3 of 5

The location of the Property is excellent and the House is very nicely done & comfortable.

The only negative we had was that they didn't give us enough towels for 5 Adults which we had booked for (only 4 left) and the house hadn't been vacuumed from the previous occupants.

Owner's Response: So glad you found the location excellent and the house comfortable. I spoke to my amazing cleaners who told me that you had arrived well before the 2 pm check in and that you had sent them away before they had finished preparing the house for your arrival.

How's The Serenity

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the property - relaxing and peaceful. The house was perfect and the communication from Jenny from the time we made the booking to our arrival was fantastic. While you were far enough away from civilisation you were close enough for a short trip to Gloucester if you needed anything.

Perfect House - Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Barrington River House for an extended family getaway and couldn't have been happier with our choice of property. The house has absolutely everything you could want (and more!) and was in the most beautiful location! We had four young children in our group and they had a ball in the gardens whilst we relaxed in the winter sun on the wrap around balcony. We stayed for three days and enjoyed a few walks around the property and along the beautiful Barrington River. We will definitely be back - simply a great house in a breathtaking spot.

An idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was perfect and the views were amazing. We were very comfortable on our weekend stay.We enjoyed a hike to the top of the hill and then a swim in the rapids of the river. We could not fault this accommodation. - a perfect house for a family reunion.
