We stayed a week at Forrester Cliff Top Cottages and found time to relax, enjoy the scenery, and discover the amazing history of the island. Bush walks, arts and crafts, restaurants with a very restrictive wine list. Every time we had a BBQ using the island produce we found the meat very tender and enjoyable. The Cliff Top Cottages were well equipped, very comfortable and the view amazing. That view, brilliant. We were warmly welcomed and provided with guidance when required. We would highly recommend you stay here as its close to all areas of the island. Well everywhere is.

We spent 7 blissful nights at Gazebo Cottage at Forrester Court. Our cottage was very well maintained, everything was of a high level of comfort and there was nothing that we needed that it didn't include. We were picked up at the airport, shown the main sights as an orientation, given a lovely welcome platter and a breakfast basket of goodies. The kitchen is well equipped if you want to self-cater or there are quite a few restaurants around the island. There's also a gas BBQ and the island has great beef and fish. The cottage is secluded and peaceful, with beautiful views. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and highly recommend it. You will find cheaper accommodation but I doubt you will find somewhere nearly as nice.

Our third holiday on Norfolk Island, and our third stay in the Gazebo. Just as peaceful, just as perfect as the first. This quiet, private and comfortable cottage nestled into the trees has become a very special place for us. To dine on the deck by candlelight, listening to the constant roll of the surf against the cliffs below, and seeing the southern stars peep through the branches of the Norfolk Pines, is to be at peace. Time means nothing. It simply doesn’t matter. And that is why we come here. Forrester Court is a retreat like no other. Norfolk Island is a paradise like no other; carrying both its natural beauty and its varied history with ease and grace. Our thanks, once again, to Ariane and Brad. The quality and respectful service you provide – the housekeeping, the clean towels, the breakfast goodies, the amazing library, the beautiful grounds, the questions answered, the friendly chats – mark Forrester Court as an escape worth making. We have enjoyed every special moment here. Highly recommended.

After the year that wasn’t, we had one request for our wonderful travel agent Thea, send us somewhere, anywhere. Well at Forrester Court we landed somewhere. From the moment we met Brad at the airport to the arrival a Clifftop Cottage we have been delighted. Our two bedroom cottage looked like a Better Homes and Gardens’s cover. In-fact the whole property meets that standard, with more thoughtful inclusions than I ever thought possible including a full library and the views are stunning. So could it get any better? With Ariane’s exquisite high tea it did. If your visiting Norfolk (and in these COVID times for Australians it’s really our only way to go over a sea) you’ll have a great time; if you visit for high tea, it will be exceptional; but if you are privileged to stay here, you’ll have perfection. To Ariane and Brad, thank you for a wonderful visit. High tea accompanied by Brad’s Convicts curse was a highlight of our stay. Thankfully we have a bottle coming back to Canberra with us.

The High Tea was Magnificent. Both the savoury and sweet choices were delicious. Lovely selection of teas and a glass of champagne on arrival all whilst overlooking the turquoise waters of Cascade Bay.
