Exceptional venue and outstanding hosts! Our daughter and son-in-law were recently married at Newrybar Downs in November 2019 and we found Pip, Greg and Jane to be incredibly accommodating hosts. The bridal party stayed the night before the wedding and thoroughly enjoyed the luxurious accommodation. The interior fit out is amazing as are the immaculately kept designed gardens and courtyards. It was ideal being able to stay at the venue and for the wedding party to step out to the ceremony under a beautiful glade of palms, drinks by the pool looking out over the long lawn and then a reception which was a long lunch held in the outside pavilion – all in one location. A dream spot for wedding photographs. Most of our guests were from NZ so they got to enjoy a bus ride through the Byron Bay hinterlands to arrive at a little slice of heaven. Thanks very much Pip, Greg and Jane from our family for being so generous of heart, our families and friends made such wonderful memories that day celebrating Sigourney and Bodan’s wedding at your venue. We highly recommend this venue will definitely be back for a family vacation at Newrybar Downs.
We recently had our wedding ceremony here. WOW where do i start.. PIP and Greg are fabulous & their house is unbelievable. From our first visit to our last nothing was to hard. Jane the on site manager during our stay was just amazing. We so appreciate her help and guidance along the way in the lead up and on the day. Thank you Jane. My only con was that we didn’t stay longer!! Thank you Newrybar Downs Team xx
Thank you so very much to Pip and Greg for having my family and I stay recently. Your home is truely wonderful and perfect for myself in a wheelchair. The bed was perfect for my hoist and the bathroom has plenty of room for my shower chair. The beds are so comfortable! Each room you step into brings another level of luxury! We really had such a lovely time thank you so much again.
We had an absolutely magical weekend at Newrybar Downs. The property is spectacular and the spacious house is situated to make the most of the setting sun in the evenings. Greg and Pip are lovely and go above and beyond to make their guests feel welcomed and at home.
Where to begin! This place, these people are like nothing you will have ever experienced. Words cannot describe what an INCREDIBLE 4 days we had. Right from the moment we met Pip we knew this place was going to be something special. We hosted our wedding ceremony at Newrybar Downs and stayed for 4 nights with our bridal party. Every second was like a dream. The house is way more than words can describe, you instantly feel at home and every detail is so carefully thought of. This is a house you want to be in, you want to entertain in and you will love. The grounds and gardens is much the same – you literally have to remind yourself to pull your jaw off the floor. The day of our wedding and the days leading up were magical, breakfasts in the cabana, swims in the pool, lawn bowls – it was pure bliss. Pip, Greg and Jane are three of the loveliest people you will ever meet. They instantly make you feel calm and welcome. The support we had from these 3 legends on the day and the days leading up was out of this world. They did absolutely everything under the sun and so much more to make our day so special. These have helped form some of the strongest memories of our whole wedding. We cannot wait to come back and stay to relive every moment all over again. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so incredibly much for having us and literally making our dreams come true.
Pip is a dream. Newrybar downs is a dream. Simply put, there is no other place like it. Walking into this luxury estate you instantly feel at peace amongst the lush green and the breathtaking views of the property. The pool is divine, the free standing fireplace is EVERYTHING, the lawn games provide endless fun… I could go on and on but we’ll leave a few secrets to the property. Every single detail has been curated by the owners and Pip’s iconic art collection will leave you in total awe. Each room resonates with you on a special level as you immerse yourself in glamour from different time periods and admire in wonder at the journey each piece of art & installation took to get to Newrybar. There is a story to be told in everything and the art and the owners are eager to share that story. You instantly feel like family and whether you’re hosting for 25 or 250, you are guaranteed to experience an intimate and successful soiree. We could not have been happier and we truly hope to visit the property again soon – it will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
An incredible property in a beautiful part of the world. The expansive property is teeming with incredible decor. The style has clearly been carefully curated by the lovely owner who has certainly got an eye for detail. The owners are hospitable, flexible and welcoming. I can’t wait to get back here.
The most beautiful stay – so tastefully done. A luxurious stay we’ll be sure to visit again !
Absolutely stunning property, perfect location, perfect weather. We could not ask for a better place for our wedding ceremony.
Pip & Jane were fantastic, both ensuring that we had everything we needed to be comfortable making us feel like we were at our own home. They arranged the set up and pack down for the ceremony so we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Having all of our closest family and friends for a small intimate ceremony at Newrybar Downs made our day so special, we will never forget and will definitely be returning to re-live the experience. We stayed an extra few days after the wedding and was the perfect place to relax by the pool to wind down after the hectic week before.
We would highly recommend this property for a wedding or function but also for a 5 star relaxing break.
We just had 5 wonderful nights. Firstly dealing with Pip is a pleasure everything is made so easy and Pip is very accommodating in ensuring we were well looked after. Jane welcomed us very professionally on arrival. The house was very well presented and is perfect for up to 4 couples. The layout of the house for privacy is brilliant and the pool was well looked after and whilst not heated we were able to use it from early morning till late at night. This is a top end house and justifies the price well and is totally private from neighbours. Well done to Pip and Jane in allowing us to enjoy our holiday.
