We were recently featured on an independent travel website,  Here’s what Jenifer Adam’s wrote about us:

"During my visit, I join a group of people who are midway through a seven-day retreat. They hail from all over Australia and most have traveled specifically to be here. For some, it is their second or third time here. Yoga is not the only attraction at Griffins Hill, though. Griffins Hill caters to the groups with a “paddock to plate” food philosophy."  

 "With its’ five-star accommodation, Griffins Hill remains a gracious home away from home for me and I am both renewed and inspired by my retreats to this wonderfully hospitable and friendly rural sanctuary". David 

 "Apart from the yoga sessions, there are splendid surroundings to explore on foot or to appreciate from a more relaxed position. Inside the Griffins Hill homestead, a sense of light and space pervades, and the guest-rooms far surpassed my humble yogic expectations. Much has been written about the excellent food provided – I can only agree wholeheartedly with every word- and look forward to my next visit. Thank you" Matina from Greece
