ON-SITE ACTIVITIES

Most guests coming to Secret Valley Escape look forward to a unique getaway with the experience of total relaxation and serenity on the 200 acres of tranquil bush environment. Pack a picnic basket and take a leisurely walk in the natural surroundings dotted with scribbling gums, creeks, dams, valleys and the top meadows. We will provide you with a map of the property outlining our nature walks. 

 

Enjoy hours in the sensational hot tub (*in select accommodations only) soaking up the beautiful escarpment views to the north and gazing at the magical star trail on a clear night - while enjoying a glass of wine! 

 

At night embrace intimate moments in front of log fire, re-connecting or watching favourite movies.....

 

A stroll through the trees at any time of the day is invigorating, and there are beautiful vistas and pockets of serenity throughout the property.

If you would like a rejuvenating massage, this could be organised on prior booking.

THINGS TO DO AT SECRET VALLEY

GO FOR A BUSHWALK

Warm clothing is recommended for the cooler months and so are long pants and covered shoes for nature walks around the property. Bring swimmers for the spa! 

BAKE SOME BREAD

The cottage has a fully equipped kitchenette with gas stove, microwave and a small fridge, as well as kettle, toaster, sandwich press and bread maker! (oven not available).

 

Provided also are cooking utensils and crockery, salt and pepper grinders and sugar, etc - feel free to bring your food provisions and cooking oils.  Due to distance from shops, we suggest organising shopping prior to arrival - the major supermarkets (open till late) are at Katoomba and Lithgow, or local shops at Blackheath (close at 5pm).  

 

Your cottage has its own BBQ on the deck - BBQ wipes are provided for wiping off excess grease.

Please clean up thoroughly after yourself, including drying and putting away dishes. 

WATCH A DVD

To enjoy movies and music, you will find a monitor, and a DVD/CD player. Feel free to bring your favourites. The monitor will also accept USBs. There is no TV reception offered in the cottages.

Slippers.

FIREWOOD  

For the cooler months (April to September), we are happy to provide a firewood bundle to you free of charge. This includes the delivery of the first load of wood with kindling, fire starters and gloves, plus access to wood as needed during your stay from the wood shed along the circular drive.

VISIT THE FARM ANIMALS

There are two Alpacas roaming on the property. They are lovely and gentle animals but can get very excited about their treats (the pellets in the bucket are like lollies to them). So rather than serving them by hand, we recommend putting the treats on the ground.

HOP IN THE SPA

Our jacuzzis utilise a state of the art Ozone cleaning system, which eliminates the need for harsh chemicals. The water is kept crystal clear, has no odours, and is kind to your skin. The spa temperature is set at a perfect 38ºC (and will shut down for your safety if turned above 40ºC).

The ozone cleaning system is very delicate and so that you and further guests can fully enjoy the spa, please read the following tips carefully:

  • The spa is not a bath, and will be damaged if used as such. It is a shared resource, like a pool.

  • Shower thoroughly before entering the spa, remove all products, like makeup, deodorant, moisteriser, etc.

  • Do not take in anything else with you, including: soap, massage oils, sunscreen, candle wax, food, drinks, loose clothing/swimwear, flower petals, etc.

To ensure spa water quality, we will come to balance the spa water between 1 - 2 pm, everyday during your stay. This will only take a few minutes but please let us know if this time is not convenient for you.

 

MISUSE FEE

We hope that this will not be necessary, however in cases of clear misuse we will charge the following fees as a minimum, with any cost of special cleaning/repairs on top.

  • $150: for cleaning due to the presence of any products/materials

  • $50:  to reset the jacuzzi in the event of a shut down due to the temperature being set above 40ºC

 

SPA MALFUNCTION REBATE

  • $50 rebate per day in the very rare situation when the jacuzzi breaks down and we are not able to offer an alternative arrangement.
