Hermitage cottage is in a very quiet location and perfect if you need to get away from the city. It is an old but comfortable house, in distance of Peter and John's house. The boys are very friendly and helpful, they are often around, working in their garden and tending to their wholesale plant business. Its a lovely glimpse of another world, recommended. I would certainly return when I need a break away to recharge.

The property is a rare find just outside of Sydney. We were hoping to walk along the creek but due to rain we will reserve this for next time. Beautiful garden, dam and rolling hill vistas were refreshing, two nights are never enough. The cabin itself is very rustic and is in original condition with the bathroom outside. John and Peter are a stone's throw away and were on hand to do some maintenance during our stay

We had a great weekend at John's property. The cottage is cosy and comfortable and was made extra pleasant with a lovely log fire. The property itself is beautiful and has spectacular views and opportunities for nearby bushwalking. Great for dogs. Our pooch Smokey Joe had a whale of a time. Will visit again!

We loved our stay at Hermitage Cottage. From the delicious continental breakfast, to the lush bath robes, delicious wood stove and an enticingly comfortable bed, we loved it! The cottage itself has its own unique personality and history. Throughout our stay we enjoyed waking to the sound of the bellbirds, breathing the fresh air, strolling through the fields and journeying to local tourist attractions. Oh - and the view from the shower - can we have that? We'd love to come again when the kids are older and explore Grose Vale and surrounds in greater detail. Thank you!

Hermitage Cottage is an old but well kept and clean cottage in a beautiful, relaxing location. Very quiet. Lots of birds. Some great walks to do around the property. John and Peter are great hosts - they live nearby but I barely saw them. Perfect for a relaxing getaway very close to Sydney. The weather just happened to be perfect while I was there and it was a joy to sprawl out in the grass and enjoy the sun. If you want to do the walks make sure you take good boots or similar.
