Ode to the Orchard, Lenswood, SA

Spend a day visiting the nearby wineries and retreat back to this cosy cottage for a long, leisurely soak in the outdoor bath. Sitting on 16-acres, it’s one of the area’s original stone homes and is a short walk to the orchard (couples are encouraged to try making the apple crumble recipe using the vintage wood-fired Aga).

Esperance Chalet Village, Bandy Creek, WA

Set in a quaint bush setting, this unique A-frame chalet isn’t technically a country retreat (it’s only five minutes from the beach) but given there is no traffic noise and no nearby neighbours, we think it qualifies. It’s part of a larger chalet village that borders Bandy Creek, where you can fish or ride kayaks. Or, simply sit around an open fire and listen to the sounds of nature.

Hart’s Farm Retreat, Shoreham, VIC

Located on a beautiful rural property Hart’s Farm features an olive grove, fruit orchards and veggie gardens as well as luxury linens and a large bath. Being surrounded by bush it feels miles away but is close to quality restaurants, vineyards, shops, spas and golf courses, as well as the Peninsula Hot Springs, which offer an adults-only moonlight bathing experience.

Petit Eco Cabin, Yallingup, WA

There is something for everyone at this architecturally designed timber cabin – access to the region’s best wineries, a vintage bathtub, multiple reading nooks, a cosy fireplace and more. Most impressive however, is its commitment to the environment and quality craftsmanship – there’s solar power, a recycled grey water system and much of the timber comes from the family farm.

Treehaus: Luxe Sunny Coast Private Bush Retreat, Valdora, QLD

Buckle up and get ready to go bush. This private, zen-like retreat is located down a dirt road and is surrounded by farmland and bush. The space has been deliberately set-up to encourage total relaxation – there is no TV (and the reception is so-so) but there are comfy beds, an outdoor deck and a fire pit for roasting marshmallows.

Hold Cottage, Gunning, NSW

Located in the charming village of Gunning (about 75km north of Canberra) is Hold Cottage – a 1910, double red brick home that’s been lovingly restored. While signs of this properties past is still evident (thankfully), modern luxuries and simple styling make for a relaxing country escape.

The Barn House, Penguin, TAS

The Barn House is a minimalist space designed for slowing down and recharging the batteries. There is no TV or Wifi and plenty of fresh, country air. Hidden on three acres, there are plenty of walking tracks nearby but if you’d prefer to relax, the outdoor bath and fire pit are the perfect place to enjoy a glass of Tassie wine.

The Garden Loft at Poets Lodge, Daylesford, VIC

Like most country escapes, Poets Lodge offers a calm and leisurely atmosphere in a private and cosy space. The main difference here however, is that it’s only a short walk from town so you can enjoy a nice meal out before wandering back here to enjoy a nightcap in front of the fire. Did we just describe the perfect date night?
