About Mt Hay Retreat
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.

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.

Set against the dramatic backdrop of Broughton Head, Mt Hay lies in a protected escarpment area so nature and wildlife are a part of everyday life. At Mt Hay we have a simple ethos – to look after Mt Hay for future generations by allowing others to enjoy this distinctive and extraordinary place. Native wildlife that can be seen on the farm include wombats, protected Brush Tailed Rock Wallabies, Echidnas, Lyre birds, Kookaburras, Wedge Tailed Eagles, Black Cockatoos and many, many more, including our very own herd of Cows, Goats, Chickens and Dougal our tickle loving Irish Setter.
As a working farm, we understand the impact of humans on the environment and we are committed to sustainable and responsible habits and behaviours at all times. Wherever possible we try to minimise the impact we have on nature. Along with recycling and minimal energy consumption, we are constantly working to reduce our use of chemicals and substances that are harmful to the environment. We welcome any thoughts you may have on how we can improve the impact we have on this special environment. We hope that this natural escape will allow all our guests to relax, refresh and enjoy their stay.
WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY
This was a perfect getaway for my girlfriend's birthday. Louise and Anthony were incredibly welcoming and even organised a bouquet of flowers for me. The accommodation was everything we needed and extremely comfortable. The views were stunning and the bathtub a huge plus. Highly recommend.

Perfect couples weekend away. Such a beautiful location, the perfect place to get away from it all & enjoy nature. Very quiet and relaxing yet only a 5 min drive into the Main Street of Berry. Outdoor bath was great to relax in & the bed was so comfortable! Would definitely recommend to anyone!
