Accommodation Hunter Valley in beautiful countryside.
My name is Marion, my husband David and I are your hosts at our countryside accommodation, Bower Retreat. We have three grown up children and five adorable grand children.
I love living on our property at Main Creek and think we are very fortunate to live in such a beautiful spot surrounded by forests and creeks. I love to share our piece of paradise with our friends and guests. One of my greatest pleasures is to see our guests’ children enjoying the animals, running wild, getting dirty and just experiencing the freedom here.
More of our time now is spent hosting our craft retreats and maintaining our accommodation, hopefully show our guests good old country hospitality in the food, and providing them with an enjoyable and productive experience.
David works in nearby Dungog at Turner Holden. I had been working for several years at Dungog High as an aid in the unit for special needs children, but left that at the end of 2004. Now I am able to spend more time working on the property here, catering for our art and craft retreats, and of course with my grand children who live nearby at Clarence Town and Gloucester.
On our property we like to go bush walking and carving out new tracks. David is a keen bird watcher and keeps a birding diary for the property. If any are interested he would gladly share his records you can check out a list here. I like to read, experiment with new recipes and in another life had time for crafts and restoring furniture.
We love meeting new friends who come to stay with us. We would love for you to come stay with us.
