Great for family long weekendAmanda Garlato - 13th June 2021
Thank you it was a wonderful house for our family weekend of 3 generations. Enjoyed the pizza fire oven and tyre swing and table tennis room and great fireplace in family room.
Fantastic family weekend awayAmanda Keogh - 31st May 2021
The house was absolutely perfect for our family getaway. It had absolutely everything we needed....we even tried our hand at the pizza oven! The location is gorgeous far enough away to appreciate the serenity but knowing that you aren't too far away from a supermarket or local wineries! Would highly recommend. We had a fabulous time in the house.
An absolutely fantastic place to stay. We stayed there as a group of adults and children and had a great time. The 2nd lounge was great for an evening meaning the noise did not disturb others and the whole place was one of the best we have stayed at. The ground were lovely and whole stay was top notch. Would highly recommend for a weekend away. We will be going back I am sure. Pizza oven and games room are a great touch!!
We enjoyed our stay at Netley Lodge it has everything you need (even a kids play room with table tennis and TV) and was very clean. The location is perfect far enough so there is no neighbors but only 15 min from Bowral.
Excellent place for a large family or group getaway!Simon Philips - 5th April 2021
Our two families had a wonderful extra long weekend at Netley Lodge over Easter 2021. The house is very large, clean and well equipped set in beautiful and peaceful surrounds. The kitchen , large BBQ and three separate fireplaces are extremely well appointed. We especially enjoyed the amazing wood fired pizza oven, with separate pizza house ! Netley Lodge truly is an excellent property! Highly recommended!
The photos do not do this place justice! It’s a beautiful space. Perfect space for 12 girls for a getaway. The communication from the host was amazing before and throughout our stay also and the surrounds of the property are also really lovely to go for a walk and see the olive trees etc. I would recommend and re book here in the future.
The House is spacious great for large groups, we enjoyed our stay here over the x-mas break, the house was set on a large property noise was not an issue. This is definetely the place to stay if you are looking for a tranquil country vibe with great air or to get away from the busy suburbs. Wineries are located locally and shops for everything you need. Would highly recommend.
Great location and clean stay.
This space is perfect for everyone and all types of groups as there is a lot of space and it is very close to mittagong. I would love to go again soon
Great secluded location surrounded by beautiful countryside and close to wineries and Mittagong. Communication was great before arrival. The house is very spacious, well layed out, clean and well equipped for larger groups. Would stay again.
