Romantic Getaways @ Barrington Tops NSW
Reinvigorate the senses and rekindle the love on a special time away.
Whether it is to celebrate an anniversary, honeymoon, weekend away, romantic getaway or just because, The Tops Organic Retreat is the place to be.
A romantic weekend getaway with that special person is something to be cherished. Here at the Tops Organic Retreat, at the northern end of the Hunter Valley, we understand the importance of being at one with nature together and allowing the senses to be rejuvenated.
You luxury romantic getaway awaits you in a beautiful timber cottage high in the Barrington Tops.
A king size spa bath, timber floors polished with organic oils, an open log fire to keep out the winter chill, a beautiful loft bedroom with stained glass windows and a balcony overlooking the rain forest … what more could be asked for? Perhaps only the songs of bell birds to serenade you on a perfect morning- and that too we can do.
Our secluded loft cabins provide just the right ambience for romance. The timber cabins overlook a creek and the rainforest and the birds sing while the forest hums. At dusk, sit quietly on the balcony with some Rosnay organic wine and watch the native animals come out to have their evening meal and go about their nocturnal business. It is pure magic.
The spacious living area includes cooking facilities to enable self-catering. The large loft bedroom upstairs has a queen chiropractic bed with a cushioned organic pillow top for the utmost comfort.
Romantic candle-lit dinners can be enjoyed in our organic restaurant where every dietary requirement is take care of. Sri Lankan curries are a house specialty.
This 2,000 acre Retreat is adjacent to the Barrington Tops National Park, which is of international significance as it forms part of the Gondwana Rainforest of Australia, a World Heritage-listed wilderness area. The Retreat and the Park provide a diverse habitat for a wide range of birds and animals, many of which are endangered.
Couples holidaying here tread lightly on the landscape, walking hand in hand over the trails on the property, watching closely for the movement in the forest that indicates the presence of often unseen creatures. It is a very special way to spend a weekend getaway.
Sitting by an open log fire on winter evenings in your secluded loft cabin adds to the delight of the stay. So why not put a bit of romance back into your life and come to The Tops?
