Your private boutique escape

About Mt Hay Retreat

About Mt Hay Retreat

Unique, private and ultra exclusive, Mt Hay Retreat is a boutique escape in Berry on the NSW South Coast that is, quite simply, second to none. With only a handful of individual suites to choose from, 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, lush green pastures and beautiful gardens.

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.

Mt Hay Retreat is exclusively for guests aged 18 and over.

Our Environment

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 includes 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 beautiful escape will allow you to relax and refresh.


The drive up to Mt Hay may seem a bit strange, but then you arrive and you just go WOW! The views are just amazing! And you just wait for the sunset. (That is something not to miss) The outdoor tub is something you have to enjoy, its very relaxing with a view. Anthony, Louise and their gorgeous and friendly pups are something you cant go past. Pop your bubbles and enjoy Mt Hay!!

A Valentine’s gift for my partner. From the moment we walked in everything was perfect. Anthony and Louise are the loviest hosts. The outdoor bath was to die for. The room was exquisitely appointed from the rain shower to the loads of coffee pods and fruit. The property itself is magical and the bird life is next level. The bonus... Dougle and Griff their doggys. Even though they were fully booked we never saw anybody... not once. A magical find.

Great location, excellent amenities, superior services both on site and delivered to your door. Anthony and Louise really have a great place to relax at and have thought of everything to make your stay Spectacular. Lots of great towns, beaches and walks within minutes of the retreat. Highly recommend!

Peaceful Tranquil Paradise
'...absolutely amazing...The view from our suite something to behold, so beautiful to be able to lay in bed and watch the sunrise across the rolling hills out to the ocean.... Ensuite with walk in shower with full length garden window on one side and a view straight out to the rolling hills on the other....Large outdoor tub, luxurious. ... You could stay all day in your suite just taking in the views, reading, writing, watching movies - so quiet. Bring your own food for continental breakfast, short drive down the hill to Berry for lunch or dinner. Wonderful guest indoor lap pool with spa, outdoor chess, amazing swing, beautiful gardens. We only saw other guests very infrequently in passing, it felt like we were in a small but very grand Australian paradise. The privacy, peace and tranquility of the location outstanding. Thank you for a wonderful stay, we will definitely be back.
