About the property

Our Retreat offers a 1 bedroom Cottage. - We are situated on the fringe to the Barrington Tops.- Barrington Village Retreat looks like a Barnhouse style house from the outside but don't be surprised by it's appearance as it has a very modern interior with an eclectic décor

The Retreat has front and back outdoor areas with a B-B-Q and comfortable outdoor furniture. It is a great way to unwind and relax with a glass of wine or freshly brewed coffee. - Coffee & Tea making facilities are available at all times. Guests can enjoy relaxing in the late afternoon sunlight with a good book from our extensive library, or maybe have a game of Boulle on the front lawn. A chess set, CDs, DVDs and games are available for you to enjoy:

We can accommodate 1 double in the luxuriously decorated bedroom with crisp white sheets and comfortable beds - you will think you are sleeping on a cloud. There is a Sofa bed for extra Guests. The bathrooms are large with plenty of fresh white towels. We are pet friendly but we do not take any reasonability for your furry friend.


Barrington Village Retreat is located only 5 mins from Gloucester and three hours north of Sydney. The Hunter Valley, Forster and Taree are all one to one and a half hours away. There are several vineyards in our area for you to enjoy and many activities around for you to participate in.... The horse riding at Camp Cobark is a favourite of most guests, the many scenic walks are amongst the best in NSW. We have waterfalls to picnic by, and beautiful rivers to canoe on. Whether it be a Babbling Brook or a Raging Rapid, you will have the time of your life. The township of Gloucester has many cafes & Restaurants for you to dine, and there is a Bowling Club, Solders Club a Golf Club with a challenging 9 hole Golf course. We have a museum, Art gallery and not far away is a Gold Mine, plenty to do and much to see.

Very special few days

  • 5 of 5

Found this to be a most convenient location to explore Barrington Tops and the Gloucester surrounds. The accommodation was tops with way more space and niceties than one would usually receive... Super comfy bed, beautiful decor and absolutely like home away from home. The warmth and special touch of hosts Lyn & Maurie, together with their four-legged family members, made for a memorable few days, which we will cherish. Not to mention the numerous sightings of Maurie Birds!

Beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Barrington Village Retreat provides amazing views from the garden and was a great place to relax for a couple of days. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need for self catering including a drawer full of spices.

10 out of 10!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in a number of B&Bs over the years, but this one has to be one of the better ones. The location was delightful (even with the rain!) and the hospitality shown was first class.

Many thanks to you both, Lyn and Maurice, we will be back!

Christmas In Barrington

  • 5 of 5

Barrington Village Retreat was a delight. Lyn the owner was indeed a lovely lady and so tolerant putting up with our 2 little canines barking at all the horses, King Parrots, Galahs and all the other wildlife.

Both Lyn and Maurie (Lyn's partner) were so eager to ensure we had ourselves a wonderful time. Particularly with their knowledge of the area, advising us of the many attractions, very memorable I assure you. The views from the verandah over paddocks and the surrounding mountains were spectacular, very peaceful, comfortable and the cabin is equipped with everything anybody could want or need. The bed I couldn't fault, the variety of entertainment DVDs and CDs covered just about every style of movie and music. The kitchen was a cook's dream, I could not find a utensil herb or spice that I needed that wasn't provided. So much better than I expected having stayed in numerous establishments (not reviewed) and always missing something, this definitely cannot be said for our stay at Barrington Village Retreat.

We were astounded that we were able to book in for Christmas, I very much doubt it will be available the same time this year when word gets out. We absolutely loved the few days we were fortunate to book, thank you Lyn and anybody planning a stay do yourself a favour and ask about her beautiful home made jams, they are delicious and unique.

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much Garth - it was a delight to read all your wonderful comments on our Retreat Maurice and myself do our very best to make our Guests stay with us as memorable as possible . We are both animal lovers and it is just as important to us that the Pets have a good time as well. So glad you enjoyed my home made jams and Preserves - I will leave them out for other guests to enjoy. Looking forwards to your visit with us again Kindest regards Lyn and Maurie .
