What our customers are saying …

We really enjoyed our stay at Colenso Country Retreat, the house was just perfect! Beautifully decorated inside and out. We spent a lot of time outside on the deck watching the sun go down over the wheat fields. If you need some time to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle this is the ultimate accommodation! It’s perfect for a weekend getaway but also great for a longer stay.


This was our 2nd stay at the property. Both visits have been very peaceful amongst the Canola and Wheat fields. The house is always clean when we arrive and the owners are always obliging and friendly as they pass on the roadway. Just love it!
