Stunning ......

  • 5 of 5

It's easy to see why The Ridge was awarded Best People's Choice in NSW for 2014. Sitting high on a ridge, overlooking Gloucester, you have spectacular views from all the rooms. The house is beautifully appointed and has underfloor heating for the cooler months. There is quite a lot to see and do around Gloucester and The Ridge is very lucky to have The Buccan Buccan's in its own backyard. Definitely worth the walk to the top. It's breathtaking. We ran out of time to do all things we hoped to, so will definitely be back. It is a very special place.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Ridge, Gloucester. It was an amazing view of the world and the peace and serenity of it was what we were looking for. Loved waking up to the sounds of nature, had the pleasure of a kookaburra joining me for my shower and between the cows and wallabies you really couldn't be any closer to nature. Have already recommended The Ridge to some friends who will be travelling here soon.

This has got to be without a doubt one of the best places i have ever had the pleasure in staying, the perfect family getaway, just wish i had stayed longed but unfortunately we drove to the Top of Gloucester Tops, had a lovely picnic and then the car wouldnt start ( dead battery.. of all places!!) and had to be rescued by the police which pretty much ended our lovely stay ( stuck up the mountain is always fun with two kids!!) !!! Oh well... these the breaks... but we will be back .... The firepit was amazing and the kids loved the openness of the property and so did puppy!!! thanks guys...

Owner's Response: Hi Matt, Thank you so much for your review. it is very much appreciated and I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. That is such a shame about the car battery. It would certainly have been interesting. I would have come to get you all if I had known but I guess there would have been no phone service up there. we really look forward to having you back soon and without any misadventures next time. Cheers Bev
