A Taste of the Country at Stockton Rise Country Retreat

You've probably driven past the magical Lockyer Valley hundreds of times as you've traveled down the Warrego Highway...

The sad fact is that many of us don't think to venture off it! As our adventure in the Lockyer Valley has proven there are so many gems to be discovered in the Lockyer. One of those gems is Stockton Rise Country Retreat.

Stockton Rise Country Retreat offers guests their choice of two comfortable self contained homes surrounded by colourful, endless fields of crops. We stayed in the "Stockton Rise"on our visit, the newest home. Stockton Rise Country Retreat is located an hour out of Brisbane in the town of Forest Hill with Laidley, and Gatton close by.

The owners have recently celebrated a huge win taking home the 2014 Lockyer Valley Business Award in the Tourism category. After our brief stay at Stockton Rise we think the win was well deserved!

The homes were well equipped with everything you could possibly need for a magical weekend in the Lockyer Valley. The Stockton Rise was extremely spacious with three bedrooms, and two bathrooms. The large deck and verandah of the newly built home is perfect for lounging around, enjoying a BBQ with friends as you take in the uninterrupted view of the sunset. 

Stockton Rise is such a relaxing place. We enjoyed listening to the birds and wildlife that also called the farm home during our stay. It was a nice change from the annoying sounds of suburbia. Even though the bed is extremely comfortable and plush, you'll be tempted to sleep right their on the front deck.

We thoroughly enjoyed our taste of country living at Stockton Rise Country Retreat. For more information on Stockton Rise Country Retreat check out their website (Here).
