Amazing Property for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 2 nights at this amazing property - 26 of us. The house is large and warm and accommodated all of us comfortably. Beautiful drive to Jenolan Caves. The host was lovely and very accommodating. Sitting in the historical lounge room in front of the fire when it was freezing outside - an absolute high light. Highly recommended.

Great location and I would highly recommend !

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of about 30 people. This place worked out great for us. It was clean and in A+ condition. Even though it was freezing cold outside the owners had all the rooms on auto heating to match our comfort levels. Beds were very conformable to sleep on and we had a couple of large living areas inside and outside to enjoy. Kitchen was fully equipped to cater for a large group.

All in all, we had an awesome time. The owners looked after us very well and were extremely accommodating to all our needs. We will be back soon and for sure !

Family friendly

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 families staying together. At Rydal Mount we were all easily accommodated and all really enjoyed ourselves. It was a great combination of convenience and charm, everything was very easy for a large group. The kids had a great time riding their bikes around the property.

It is a rare accomodation for a large group.

  • 5 of 5

We 7 families from Newcastle enjoyed very much in the Rydal Mount Retreat Center.

Addition to neat and tidy rooms lots of other spaces are there for a big group.

The kitchen is amazing and big to accommodate many people.

The Retreat itself is in very quite place. We went to the Lake and Caves from the RMHC, the driving itself very enjoyable. We love to go again. Thanks to the owner for his generosity and hospitality.

Great for a quilting retreat

  • 5 of 5

My quilting group have stayed here about 8 times. Its fabulously quiet and no distractions ( apart from country walks) to prevent you from getting your sewing projects done. Large room for the group to sew in (with excellent gas heating). Electric blankets on the beds and cosy fire in the main house make your stay comfortable. Catering a great option that I can highly recommend. All rooms have good beds.
