  • Are there packages available like buffet breakfast and dinner included?

    Many thanks for your query. We offer a number of packages that include massages, champagne, cheeseboards and chocolate dipped strawberries etc, however as we do not have a restaurant on site we do not offer dinner or breakfast per se. We are however, only 5 km from Berry where there is a well-stocked IGA with fresh fruit, deli bar etc where you can stock up on essentials and also a great selection of cafes and restaurants to choose from. We can send you a list of the better restaurants in Berry if required - just let us know. Kind regards, Anthony and Louise Mt Hay Retreat.

A luxurious getaway for couples to escape and unwind. Unique, private and ultra exclusive, Mt Hay Retreat is a boutique escape that is quite simply second to none. With only 5 individual suites in total, each is filled with natural light and has been designed as your own private escape. Dominated by breathtaking views and offering a secluded and peaceful sanctuary well away from the cares and complexities of contemporary life, it is still only minutes from the heart of world famous Berry Village. Serenely set on 360 acres against the majestic backdrop of Broughton Head, this magnificent property is a working farm embraced by native bushland and lush green pastures. With views that stretch uninterrupted across the rolling hills of the South Coast and beyond to the distant ocean horizon, Mt Hay Retreat is a lifestyle destination of rare distinction.

We are under ten minutes from the heart of Berry - a town like no other. Berry combines timeless country charm with contemporary culture. Our guests can explore Berry and discover a vibrant cafe scene, boutique shopping experiences and exceptional restaurants – a great way to spend an afternoon just pottering about. There are also plenty of wineries close by to tickle your taste buds, or some simply stunning bush walks to get your heart pumping and allow you to reconnect with nature and the world. We are also only 15 minutes to the grand sweeping sands, rock pools and bushland of awe-inspiring Seven Mile Beach National Park, it is also little more than 20 minutes to the sleepy coastal hamlets of Gerringong and Kiama.
