Wild Edge Retreat

Hunter Valley Luxury Retreat, Wollombi, Australia



What our guests say about Wild Edge Retreat....

I'm not the one to write reviews!

But I must give credit when it's due . Last week I had the distinct pleasure of staying 4 nights at this superb retreat with my wife . My stay was absolutely perfect. From the kind, courteous, an professional staff, to the meticulous, comfortable rooms and common areas, and the swimming facility, ( your own infinity pool .) not to mention the amazing uninterrupted panoramic views .

From the minute we arrived my wife and I were greeted by the lovely owners of the property , there was no fuss or unnecessary check-in forms to fill out , just a warm welcome friendly smile and instantly escorted by golf buggy to our amazing cabin . Where online photos DO NOT do it justice this place is much better in person .

my experience was nothing less than exceptional.

If you want , luxury , privacy and great service you MUST visit the wild edge retreat .

Thank you so much

We were looking for somewhere special for a weekend getaway and found Wild Edge Retreat. The booking system was easy to use and we appreciated the courtesy call on the day of our arrival.

The Retreat is truely beautiful and we were treated to a great welcome at reception then escourted to our Pavilion, where we were shown how everything worked and where everything we would need was.

Our Pavilion was very clean, totally private and the view was amazing.

All in all our stay was awesome and we will be recommending Wild Edge Retreat to all of our friends and relatives - thank you again for an amazing experience.

Ben and Denise - September 2017

Thank you so much for giving us the perfect weekend experience that we were so much in need of. We loved the great friendly service we received when making our booking and the informative and personal service at the Retreat. Our first (and lasting) impression of Wild Edge was amazing and our Pavilion was mind blowing, truely spectacular and spotlessly clean.

We will be recommending a relaxing break to Wild Edge Retreat to our friends and personally, we can't wait to come back. 

Naomi and Iain - July 2017

We have stayed at Wild Edge Retreat before and just love it! The stunning property always exceeds expectations and sets the standard for our stay.

Alan and Andrew are so accommodating, and their relaxed and attentive nature is so refreshing. Previously, we had stayed in the Earth Song Pavilion, but this time chose Wind Spirit. It was so clean, classy and everything we had hoped for. There was nothing we wanted for and our three night stay was totally relaxing, which gave us the opportunity to 're-charge' with utmost privacy and top class food supplies.

Wild Edge Retreat is a testament to the owners passion and understanding of what a couples retreat should be.

Thank you for once again giving us the opportunity to share this beautiful part of the Hunter!

See you next year x

Mark and Cherene - July 2017

We 'googled' accommodation in the Hunter Valley with a spa and log fire and found Wild Edge Retreat. The online booking system was easy and efficient and our email confirmation was very detailed.

On entering the Retreat our first impression of the garden was 'serine and beautiful'. We were warmly greeted in reception and were well looked after for the duration of our 7 night stay.

The view from our Pavilion (Earth Song) was magnificent and the Pavilion itself was well laid out with delightful decore and extremely clean. We loved the facilities, especially the spa and fire.

Our stay was a complete joy and the Retreat provided the perfect escape from our hustle and bustle life that we needed.

Genevieve and Trent - June 2017

Alan, just wanted to express out heartfelt thanks for making our stay at Wild Edge such a weekend to remember. The easy booking, personal touches in our fantastic Pavilion and the 'above and beyond' service made it exactly what your website promised....Living where I do, it was the perfect opportunity to indeed 'Relax, Reconnect and Rejuvenate'.

Thank you to you and Andrew and of course Ruby!!

Kay and Nick - April 2017

What a great place Wild Edge Retreat is! From our first call to the Retreat, to booking on line, to our arrival and our stay, it was all toally  AMAZING, AMAZING!! The accommodation was VERY clean and exceeded our expectations - which were pretty high. It is certainly the BEST place we have ever stayed at by far.

We had a great weekend and I'm sure we have plenty of friends who will want to come - we will be back.

Thank you.

Taha and Zeinab - March 2017

Everything was just perfect for our stay at Wild Edge. The owners were very friendly and helpful and gave us great customer service. The property is in a stunning location and beautifully set out.  We loved the buggy transfer to our Pavilion, which was also amazing and extremely clean and well appointed.

Even though we didn't get a lot of sunshine during our stay, it didn't dampen our experience and to watch the clouds and rain over the mountain ranges was pretty spectacular!

Thank you for a great weekend.

Brendan and Demi - March 2017

Thank you so much for a beautiful stay. We loved our Pavilion (Wind Spirit), the high attention to detail and all the little touches you had thought of really make it obvious just how much you guys care for the Retreat.

The booking system was easy to use. The Retreat is totally beautiful and you made us feel so welcome. It's easy to see why people adore it here. You have done an incredible job.   

Amanda and Dave - February 2017

We just wanted to say thank you for an amazing stay at your property. We really appreciated the prompt follow up to our questions prior to arrival and once we had arrived we felt like the outside world was dropping away as we walked along the boardwalk to reception, which gave us a lovely sense of arrival.

The Pavilion (Wind Spirit) overwhelmed us! It was all so lovely, beautifully appointed and furnished. Everything, including the cheese platter we had ordered and our gluten free breakfast items, were well presented and thoughtfully done.

Although we tried, there was nothing we could think of that could have added to our experience at Wild Edge. The thoughful touches, the complete privacy, the aesthetics - all a treat and a true Retreat.

Very much appreciated and we will return.

Deborah and David - December 2016

Whilst googling Romantic Retreats in the Hunter, we found Wild Edge Retreat. We wanted somewhere special to celebrate out 13th Wedding Anniversary and arriving at the Wild Edge gates we immediately realised we had picked the right place. Once the gates opened we could see how beautiful and tranquil the Retreat is.

Our host (Alan) warmly welcomed us to his property. We found him to be very polite and helpful and he gave us a full explaination of how everything in the Pavilion worked (much appreciated - thank you). Our first impression of our Pavilion (Earth Song) was WOW, WOW, WOW!. and it didn't stop. The Pavilion was also amazingly clean, which we appreciated.

We loved our stay at Wild Edge Retreat and we can't wait to return. We also can't wait to tell everyone we know about Wild Edge!!!

Thank you so much

Leanne and Mark - October 2016

We were so excited as the gates to Wild Edge opened to reveal the most stunning grounds. Our hosts were friendly, chatty and welcoming and we loved the informative 'debrief' of where everything was and how it was operated in our Pavilion, which was so clean you could eat your breakfast off the floor if you wanted!

Wild Edge Retreat is the most beautiful, well attended and perfectly thought out spa break we have ever stayed at. The privacy, the stunning views and perfect Pavilion made our 2 night stay too short and we wish we could have  stayed for longer. Everything has been thought of - I couldn't wait to wake up in the morning!

Thank you for making our first wedding anniversary so special.

Lauren and Hadleigh - October 2016

Our son and his partner had recently stayed at Wild Edge Retreat and were so impressed, that two months later, he booked a suprise two night stay for my wife and I.

We can clearly see why he was so impressed. On arrival (and throughout our stay), our hosts were very friendly and helpful.The Retreat itself is just beautiful, both the external surrounds and the Pavilion itself - stunningly beautiful and quite humbling, not to mention immaculately clean.

We had the most relaxing and enjoyable stay. Sadly, being Winter, it was too cold to use the pool, but it was very tempting to jump in!

Thank you so much for your warmth, for making us feel welcome and for your excellent service.  

Mark and Sally - August 2016

I was reasearching online for a romantic getaway. I wanted to find the perfect place to propose to my girlfriend when I found Wild Edge Retreat. I spoke directly to Alan, who I found very easy to talk to and happily answered my questions.

On arrival at Wild Edge we were greeted by a lovely entrance and were intrigued and amazed by the location of the property. Our Pavilion was perfect in every way and very clean and tidy.We immediately felt relaxed and at home.

While we were out at dinner, the romance package I had ordered was set up, which, on our return, created the perfect ambience for my proposal, with dozens of candles, soft music, rose petals and sparkling wine.

Thank you for all of your help. Wild Edge will always hold a special place in our hearts and we will be back. 

Josh and Lauren - August 2016

We just wanted to say what a great stay we had at Wild Edge Retreat.

The level of sevice was easily a 10/10 and the Retreat is WOW! with breathtaking views in such a tranquil setting. Our Pavilion (Wind Spirit) was so clean and beautiful, we could have just moved in forever and the welcoming music and candles were such a nice touch.

The over all standards of Wild Edge are A1, and certainly the best I have ever stayed in.

Michelle and Chris - July 2016

All we can say is Wow,Wow, Wow!!!!
We just spent 4 days in the Whispering Forest Pavilion, and I have to say, you guys are amazing, your attention to detail is like no other I've ever seen.
Thank you for making our 14th wedding anniversary so magical and so special and one I will never forget!!!!!
Can't wait to get back there.

Peter and Daniela - July 2016

Thank you for allowing us to stay and enjoy your beautiful Wild Edge Retreat after our recent wedding. The two nights were not long enough, however, it gave us time to relax and reflect on the last couple of crazy days we have had.

The Pavilion (Earth Song), was immaculately presented, with not a speck of dust or dirt. Wild Edge is a HUGE credit to yourselves and we appreciated the added touches you made for us. We were so pleased that we ordered the cheese platter and BBQ platter, the flavours were delicious. Your portions were very generous and they lasted for our entire stay.

We can't thank you enough for such a wonderful stay. It's been a beautiful start to our marriage and has created beautiful memories. It will be hard waking up without those breathtaking views!!

We WILL be back. xox

Darren and Danielle - April 2016

We just wanted to say thank you!

We honestly had the most amazing time staying with you. The location, atmosphere, hospitality and just your absolute friendliness was more than we ever imagined and hoped for. Even before we arrived, the phone call on the day of our arrival, to ensure we were OK with the directions and to remind us of what to bring, was really lovely service.

Wild Edge is even more stunning than we could have imagined, for once - the photos do not do it justice, plus the music, candles, Easter treats and breakfast were such a welcoming touch and the views are just beautiful.

Thank you again for being such wonderful people and essentially allowing into your home!

We can't wait to return.


Chantel and Alex - March 2016

My fiance Joel and I would like to thank you for the amazing time that we had at your Retreat.

For me it was definately the most beautiful place I have ever stayed. You, and your perfect service, has definately added up to the perfect time of my life.

We truely enjoyed every single detail of our Pavilion and I must say - I did not want to leave.

The property is so peaceful, so beautiful and so comfortable and the view - STUNNING!!!

The whole weekend was the best I've ever experienced and topping it all off with the engagement surprise, I could not have wished for a better fairytale.

We will definately come back, that's for sure.

Thank you once again, and we wish you all the best and hope to see you soon.


Dita and Joel - March 2016

We just wanted to say thank you SO much for having us stay! We had a fantastic birthday celebration and managed to get a lot of 'us' time together at your beautiful and luxurious property.

We loved the personal welcome on arrival and the informative orientation of our Pavilion. You are great hosts and were always very courteous, friendly, professional and helpful. We also appreciated the high level of professional cleaning and the contempory decor of the Pavilion.

We rated our stay with you at 200% and can't wait to return.

P.S. Thank you for liaising with my wonderful husband to arrange this perfect long weekend.

Annie and Michael - February 2016

I just want to thank you so much for a great few days we spent at Wild Edge, we have not stopped talking about it, as well as to our friends.

It was spectacular! The peacefulness that you get there is unbelievable, to go with the wonderful surrounds.

The Pavilions would be the best I have come across on a Retreat, you have provided your guests with everything they need while they are there.

We can’t wait to re-visit Wild Edge Retreat again in the future.

Great job, keep it up!.

Thank you once again & see you soon.

Robert and Roberta - January 2016

We just wannted to say how very much we both enjoyed our stay at your Retreat.

Although, as you noticed when we chatted at the end of our stay, we have travelled alot, your place is right up there with the best we have stayed (and we have stayed in some very nice places) and may even be the top of those places. Although we didn't have the best weather during our stay, I think this actually added to our pleasure as we watched the show of lightening in the distance and the mists in the valley below us. STUNNING!

As we mentioned, we will definately be recommending your Retreat to all of our friends, and hope to visit again when we are next in Australia - which is unusual for us.

With thanks and best regards.

Sharon and Chris (Wales UK) - November 2015

I was looking for somewhere special to propose to my girlfriend and we were both pleased that I picked Wild Edge Retreat. I wanted to plan a few suprises (including a helicopter flight) and every time I spoke with the owners they were very accommodating to all of my requests. On arrival we were warmly welcomed before being transported to our Pavilion by buggy and shown through, which was a nice presonal touch.

The Pavilion (Earth Song) was beautiful, with breathtaking views and far exceeded our expectations. We loved lazing on the daybed as the sun was setting.

I wanted this to be a perfect weekend and it certainly was - even the weather couldn't have been better. 

We will definately be back!!

Nathan and Kristy - November 2015

We loved our stay at Wild Edge Retreat. The service we received right from our first enquiry was fantastic.

The property is STUNNING!!. Reception was gorgeous, friendly and welcoming. Our Pavilion was spotlessly clean and so much more than what we had hoped for.

We never felt so relaxed and comfortable. Our stay was definately 110% and we will definately be back!

Thank you so much 

Tamica and Russell - September 2015

We just wanted to thank you SO much! We had such a fantastic first Anniversary with you. Your photos on the web don't do the Retreat justice. The beautiful surroundings, the water features and gardens all add to the luxurious and tranquil feeling.

We were so impressed with our Pavilion. Not only the amazing view, but your attention to detail, the scented oil burner, candles and beautiful music, made it feel so decidant and so professionally run.

Our stay was fautless. We rarely go back to somewhere twice, but we are already keen to book with you again (so are a few of our jealous friends).
