The Hotel: Clarendon Forest Retreat

Clarendon Forest Retreat is a scenic country escape nestled between the Manning Valley and Forster in the Kiwarrak State Forest. With seven private cottages spread across 100 acres, holidaymakers can take advantage of secluded accommodation with views of rolling hills, deep valleys and a lily-filled lagoon. The retreat’s accommodation in the middle of the country makes for an ideal destination for couples, families and groups willing to take a short break or spend a weekend away.

Each cottage is unique, giving guests the opportunity to choose the style of accommodation that is right for them. Couples choose from three cottages designed for romantic escapes. The Sanctuary is a split-level sandstone and cedar cottage nestled under the trees and surrounded by private gardens. The cottage creates a private world of lazy days, picnics, snuggling up on the satin sofa and relaxing in the heated spa. Another retreat for couples is The Chapel; a façade for a luxury split-level cottage within the sandstone building. The Chapel has high ceilings, gothic windows and a collection of antiques to add a touch of old-world romance. Cedar glass doors surrounding the spa pool keep guests cosy in winter, or can be opened onto the private deck shaded by a pergola. The Hideaway is a cottage with panoramic views of forest valleys and a dam with a north facing balcony that is ideal for entertaining. Designed with mudbrick and jarrah facilities, this cottage is designed for one or two couples.

Families or larger groups can embrace the serenity of the bush in one of three large cottages including The Summer House. This split-level sandstone and cedar cottage gives panoramic views of the private valley, with its own tennis court, full-sized kitchen and heated spa pool. The Talawahl Eco Lodge is a purpose-built environmentally friendly construction with a passive solar design. Large windows wrap around the verandah, offering views of the lily-filled lagoon and with plenty of room for kids and pets to run around. The teenager’s retreat downstairs provides extra privacy and space for both adults and children alike. The Waterlily Cottage is a three-bedroom cottage with an open loft and ensuite, open plan dining, lounge and kitchen area, and a balcony spa. Last, but not least, is the Tara Lodge, a four-bedroom family cottage ideal for four couples, or a large family of eight people. Forest views greet guests from every side of the large wrap-around verandah, which stands complete with a heated spa, outdoor seating, and a gas barbecue.

Get back to basics by embracing the property’s serene surrounds, spending the day horse riding, and sipping some wine in the heated spas.

Nestled in a valley with trails crossing thousands of acres of untouched national park, the area is ideal for exploration. Kiwirrak State Forest is ideal for bushwalking adventures, mountain biking expeditions and is 25 minutes from some of the regions best beaches.

A walk or ride through the forest takes hikers through varied terrain, starting out in dry forest and then roaming through pockets of mini rainforest with mossy logs and creek crossings. Horse riding on site is a popular activity, with scenic horse riding trails and options for every experience level. Riders are accompanied by experienced instructors and can embark on a guided tour with quiet, responsive horses.
