It is a beautifully laid out cottage; the pictures in the website do not do it justice, it is far nicer and "charismatic" in real life. We had wet weather but that didn't deter us from having a BBQ nor getting the kids out in the backyard enjoying the swings, flowers and little sculptures. It is truly beautiful.
We had a most enjoyable stay at Owls Cottage. We arrived on a cold, misty and rainy afternoon. Val was waiting to let us in, and to inform us of all we needed to know for our stay. The cottage was equipped with everything you would need if you wanted to stay in and cook, plus books, games etc. Our teenage visitor delighted in counting the many owls to be found both inside and outside the cottage. The parking permit for The Three Sisters, that Val allowed us to use, was an extra bonus.
The owner Val has really taken her time to make sure this beautiful cottage is as relaxing and at one with nature as possible! The stunning garden setting (which has a natural creek running through it) is simply breath taking (esp: in Spring when everything is in bloom) We stayed here with our 2.5 year old last year and it was simply wonderful weekend away from the hustle and bustle of Sydney! Master 2 loved the swing set in the back yard and the paddle game also. I loved the garden and benches/chairs placed in front yard and back also - It gave you such an 'at one with nature' feel as you were literally at one with nature! The inside is as lovey as the outside, with many personal touches through out the cottage. We were greeted by the owner who showed us around the cottage and gave us a really nice and fresh (local produce) welcome hamper which we really enjoyed. We will be back again soon with (now master 3/5) and cannot wait to enjoy the same relaxing, naturally beautiful cottage that we remember, Thankyou Val, it truly was perfect in so many ways!
