“Beautiful setting, excellent facilities, very relaxing”
Reviewed 25 December 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My wife and I stayed at Stockton Rise for 3 nights in October. The location is an elevated secluded bush setting overlooking a picturesque rural farming scene. Sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine in the afternoon was a relaxing highlight. The pub in Forest Hill (3 kms away) does good counter meal. The IGA at Laidley (5 kms away) had all of the bits and pieces we needed to complement our stay. We will stay there again.

Thank you for your review and your lovely helpful comments. You have indeed captured the specialness of Stockton Rise in being so close to all the amenities but that feeling of being far away at the same time. I'm glad you were able to enjoy the views over the farm - the harvest is about to happen again. I hope you are able to come again. See you then.

Thank you for your review and your lovely comments. I am so pleased you had such a relaxing time away with your friends. It is a very quiet and serene place to stay with beautiful birdlife around the house and grounds and over the road at our large dam, with kangaroos and wallabies abundant in the area as well. I look forward to you visiting again.

“Your Dream Holiday”
Reviewed 18 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed at Stockton Rise In September for one week and wished it could have been forever! The weather was a perfect temperature for us brits! On the first morning we woke up to the most unusual bird song and when I looked out of the window the view was amazing! The house is a delight, it is very modern and comfortable. Patti is a lovely lady and a friendly host. We are keen wildlife enthusiasts and spent most of our time watching and photographing lots of different birds from the balcony of the house and sat by the lake/dam for many hours filming water birds and kangaroos. We done our shopping in the local small town of Laidley which was a nice little town, we went to Daisy Hill Rehabilitation Centre for Koalas, which was a bit of a sad day, as we were told that seeing a Koala in the wild is a rare sight due to the Koala being threatened, because of loss of habitat, road accidents and dog attacks. We decided to spend the rest of our time at Stockton Rise, as sometimes if you are patient and stay still and the wildlife comes to you! Thank you Patti for the interesting tour of your farm and making our stay a memorable one. Lynne and Graham

Thank you so much for your lovely review. I wish you could have stayed longer as well - it was a pleasure meeting you both and spending time with you. We have so many birds and other native wildlife around our area. I particularly enjoyed seeing a wedge tailed eagle struggle out from the bush in front of me with a bird in its talons one morning while you were visiting. I was able to share this with you as you were spotting the turtles in the dam. It is sad there is a loss of koala near to the cities, but sometimes we are able to spot them in country areas ? our son spotted one in our back paddock not long ago. They seem to roam a lot though and are a rare sight and it is very special when we spot one.

I?m glad you also enjoyed our neighbouring town of Laidley. There are some beautiful shops and cafes in Laidley as well as in Forest Hill which is also very close. I hope you might be able to come back to Australia and particularly to our part of the world again. There is much more for you to see.

Kind regards,
Patti

“Lovely house and views”
Reviewed 14 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I would recommend staying at Stockton Rise. It is modern, well equipped, comfortable, and very clean. The views overlooek farmland in the Lockyer Valley with spectacular sunsets. Recommendd for a country retreat or if you are looking to stay in the region for a few days. Much better than staying in Gatton! The host Patti was very helpful as well.

Thank you for your kind words. We love our spectacular views overlooking the farm. There is always something happening in front of the house with the barley harvest just finishing at the moment. Being a vegetable growing area, there is also a lot of vegetable harvest with onions, broccoli and beetroot being harvested as I write; and our sunsets - they are spectacular. Different colours every day!

I hope you might be able to visit again and enjoy some of our delightful produce.

Kind regards,
Patti

“Peaceful, relaxing, home away from home!”
Reviewed 23 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The owners of Stockton Rise Country Retreat are a pleasure to deal with! Friendly and helpful!
The property was exactly as displayed on the Stockton Rise Country Retreat website. It was welcoming, comfortable, clean, and practically but appealingly furnished! The kitchen is very well-equipped!
The small town of Forest Hill is just a few minutes away, and the larger towns of Laidley and Gatton are not much further.
Beautiful sunsets were our delight every day! Various birds were around throughout the day, and we enjoyed the sounds of kookaburra's often! It was so quiet and peaceful at Stockton Rise Country Retreat! Definitely recommended to stay!

I?m so glad you enjoyed your time at Stockton Rise. We love sharing it with visitors and have you delight in the special things of our area. We are so close to three lovely towns ? great options for shopping and buying special gifts for those back home. We also have a lovely choice of cafes. You could spend a week or more in the area and try a different one each day. And our bird life and wild life are amazing. We never tire of the birdsong or watching the wallabies and kangaroos (although Tim does get annoyed when they eat his crops).
I look forward to you visiting again some day.
Kind regards,
Patti
