Twenty minutes’ drive north of Port, the award-winning Telegraph Retreat encourages a slower pace from the moment you arrive. With spa cottages to suit couples or a two-storey federation house for families, you can pick your relaxing space in this rural, woodland setting. Breakfast hampers are available with homemade granola, bread and jams freshly laid eggs from the retreat’s chickens and antipasti plates and dinners can be delivered to the door. Feel your stress dissolve in the outdoor hot spa or during an in-cottage treatment from a local therapist, while the kids meet the hobby farm’s baby goats, miniature cattle, donkey and ducks and help collect those breakfast eggs.
