A truely wonderful place where you can do as much, or as little as you like. The Blue Mountains are spectacular. Lime Tree Farm is perfect. Suzie, Charlie, Roger, Leroy, Alex, Keisha and Jet Li all made us very welcome. We arrived as strangers, and left as friends. We arrived after dark ,and so had no real idea what the Lime Tree, and the surrounding area looked like. By 5.30 the next morning we were up watching the sunrise and taking in the spectacular views. The cottages are lovely ,and have every facility you need to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Lime Tree Farm has been very thoughtfully landscaped to make the very best of the location.There are many different plants and flowers to be admired, and they attract the local wildlife, especially the birds. Lime Tree is still near enough to visit Kingston, but far enough away to make you feel that you are well into the heart of the country. The meals created by Suzie and Keisha were wonderful. There was so much delicious stuff to eat at every sitting we must have put on pounds!! Whilst we were there Roger was an excellent guide taking us to the Chinchona Botanical Garden,(well worth it), and Strawberry Hill. He made every excursion extremely enjoyable and catered to all our needs. Thanks Roger we really appreciated it. We spent a marvellous morning bird watching with Ryan, eating the local produce, cheeseberries and bilberries. Ryan is extremely knowledgeable about birds, and the Blue Mountains. He is very passionate about the area and the wildlife, and that made the trip very enjoyable. A bit like having you own personal David Attenborough. We spent a morning at Mavis Bank, the world famous coffee factory where Barbara gave us a tour. She went to great lengths to explain the whole process to us. I am renown for only drinking hot water. but I tried the coffee at the factory, and it is really very smooth. Well worth the trip to purchase it direct from the source at a very reasonable price. There was so much more to do, treking, Lime Cay, Kingston, if we wanted. All in all this was a wonderful holiday. We picked Lime Tree thinking it was a special place for our 30th wedding anniversay, and a very belated honeymoon, and we were not disappointed in any way. We will be going back again....
