Sophisticated pile with acres of sculpted garden

Beechmont Retreat will make you feel like you've stepped inside the pages of a country living glossy. This wonderful hill-top retreat comes with 10 acres of sculpted gardens just outside your front door. Come with a group and you’ll lose each other in this expansive home, only to reunite in the shared spaces for wine-filled dinners framed by the flowerbeds. Come with a lover and find your favourite corner of the house to cuddle up in — be that curled up by the wood-fire, or on one of the many seats with a view.

With a luxurious abode set on a sprawling estate, it is not unlikely you will want to stay on site. There are many species of flora and birdlife encompassed within Beechmont Gardens, as well as water features and sculptures dotted about. Weather permitting, you could pack a picnic with the tasty breakfast treats provided at your stay, and have a hit of croquet on the lawn. Or you might be just as happy on a peaceful wander around the grounds, surrounded by the heady scent of Rhododendron flowers.

If you do feel like venturing further afield, there is an array of attractions just 3km away. The Olinda area offers a collection of parklands, forest trails, and even waterfalls if you’re up for a fresh dip. If gaining some perspective as a speck amongst the towering trees sounds enticing, then Olinda is the place for you. Or should you prefer artisan woodwork to ancient trees, you can trawl the town’s stock of crafty wares and antique treasures, stopping at a boutique cafe or restaurant to refuel along the way.
