Three well appointed one bedroom country style cottages and 1x two bedroom garden suite in private bushland setting. Each cottage has a fully equipped kitchen, gas bbq on private verandah with mountain More views. Spa & log fire, TV, DVD, toiletries, robes and generous breakfast hamper. The cottages are set in the landscaped grounds of 25 acre property, "rustic spirit", nestled in the arms of the Wollemi National Park. Abundant birdlife and great food in tranquil surrounds. 90 minutes from Sydney airport and 50 minutes to Katoomba. Close to pick your own orchards, Mt Tomah Botanic Gardens and local cafes. Less
