We stayed in the Milking Shed. We were welcomed by Linda, and given lots of great suggestions of what to do and where to go. And then we entered the Milking Shed itself, a pitcher of wild flowers, gentle classical music playing in the background... All well in tune with the rustic, recycled greening of the place. We'd been recommended... More

We felt very welcome during our stay in the studio. A surprisingly lovely decorated place, where music welcomes you. A few little things that made it special. We also liked the hot tube outside, and even saw some possums in the tree. This was our best stay in our 4 week stay in Australia, absolutely loved it! And the surrounding,... More

Quite a different place where recycling and the use of old material play an important role. We stayed for two nights at the Buttercup Barn. Not very convenient. On one side you are supposed to use the gas grill and prepare your meals on the other you have to take care of the dishes using the bathroom sink. And be... More

We are very disappointed to learn that you found your stay with us to be so uncomfortable. It is extremely unfortunate that you did not let us know of your discomfort while you were here so that we could have addressed your concerns immediately. It is impossible for us to help you after the fact. Due to local council regulations... More

This is a property you stay in & will always remember. We stayed in Buttercup Barn, the neighbours being Moo Manor. The whole of Old Leura Dairy is unique. Care & love has been chosen with everything in the property. It was very relaxing & made a great base for the Blue Mountains & the surrounding countryside. Shania is welcoming... More

Old Leura Dairy is a lovely property on the quiet residential side of Leura. My family and I(6 of us) stayed for 2 nights at the Workers Cottage and we really enjoyed our stay. We took a train from Sydney Kingsford Smith International Airport to Leura. We had to change trains at Central. About 2 hours and passes by some... More

We stayed in Moo Manor, a two bedroom cottage that is part of the Old Leura Dairy. It was simply perfect. It was quiet, cool, light and set close to Leura town centre but in amongst the Australian bush so we could enjoy native birdsong and not be disturbed by the hustle bustle or highway noise. Our host Shaina was... More

Thank you for such wonderful words! I am truly glad you enjoyed your stay and were able to 'just be', enjoy the environment of the dairy and of the nature we are surrounded with. It was a pleasure and an inspiration to meet you and I look forward to seeing you here again. Shaina More

The owner was very friendly and gave us a map and showed us which places to visit and when. The Studio was clean,... More

I booked Old Leura Dairy with a large group of 23 friends. Everyone (including myself) was amazed at the quality of the accommodation - the pictures really don't do it justice. It was quirky, rustic and the perfect location for our Christmas in July event. The staff were helpful in arranging additional seating for the Saturday dinner by the fireplace!... More

We stayed at the Old Leura Dairy as part of our anniversary and stayed in the smallest converted cow house Buttercup barn. As we arrived the staff were very helpful and then left us alone which was great! The barn is something special everything appears re-used from something else think rustic country farm house with a touch of dairy. Though... More
