The Arbour was a wonderful cottage that suited 5 adults well. The cottage was clean and comfortable and fully self-contained, which comes in handy when it was New Year's long weekend. It is so peaceful here & we loved the isolation. We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed the breakfast hamper as part of the deal.

The Spa was exactly what we needed and as there was no one else staying in the other cottage we felt especially secluded. The host 'Meg' was friendly and accomodating. The food supplied was enjoyable, mostly home made which makes all the difference.

The Bower is a lovely cosy cottage, I loved the little treasures that you discover on your visit, both in the natural setting and the special surprises throughout the cottage. We enjoyed our 2 nights here. Thank you!!

A very beautiful, secluded getaway. The cottage (Bower) was a great romantic space, with hearts and a strong Paris theme. From the moment of arrival, it was a stress-free break away, letting you soak in the country atmosphere and enjoy some personal time. The staff were wonderful and friendly, which made the stay that much easier.

Great little getaway. Charming and quaint little cottage (The Bower) perfect for a romantic break. The special little touches everywhere made all the difference. Staff very friendly and helpful. Quiet and secluded location but only a quick drive to Old Bar. Will definitely stay again.

Many places promise a lot take brilliant photos and fail to deliver, Kiwarrak was NOT one of these. The team here went way beyond what is expected and it is the nice little added surprises that impress us when we stay. Book now you wont be disappointed. One word to describe Kiwarrak Country Retreat = PERFECT!

We had a lovely winter stay in the Arbour cottage with our three young daughters. Lovely fireplace. Cottage was very clean and comfortable. The girls loved the fairy garden and swing, and even helped with feeding the chickens. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Three night stay at Kiwarrak. Accommodation very comfortable with personalised touches. The breakfast basket included everything for the morning. Well equipped kitchen, a dishwasher would have been nice, but certainly not essential. Very tastefully decorated, again with thoughtful touches of organic, homemade soaps and lotions. The cottage did smell very slightly musty but a scented candle quickly lifted the ambiance....

From the moment we turned into the property we could feel ourselves relax,the ponds scattered through the property and the little garden nooks amongst the bush made for an interesting morning bushwalk.That was after we sat dowen to our wonderful complimentary breakfast. The cottage was spotless and perfect for relaxing inside or out.We are already planning our next stay there....

We were looking for somewhere nice to stay on our way down the coast from Coffs Harbour to Sydney and as we have a friend who lives in Old Bar I looked on the net and found this gem. A short drive from Old Bar the property is located in a beautiful bush setting. We stayed in the Bower which...
