Our family trip to the Blue Mountains was made by our stay at this lovely set-up. It was located just outside Wentworth Falls, but far enough off the road to feel isolated and peaceful. We stayed at the Wattle cottage which is one of the smaller cottages. There was a very efficient wood-burning free-standing fire which we found easy to operate (if the instructions on the wall are followed!). The power is solar but we found no problem with supply although lighting in the kitchen was more 'atmospheric' than necessary. A TV & DVD player were provided. For internet junkies I can tell you there is no problem with a 3G signal. Cooking facilities were fine too. The composting toilet was a revelation and we experienced no issues with it. The cottage decor is lovely although ramshackle in places. There is a deliberate eclectic look which is partly due to a clever re-use of reclaimed/reused furniture. In places there is a rough and ready feel but this added to the atmosphere we felt. You will need to leave $10 a day for a 'wood/gas 'levy' and you will have to clean the cottage before departure. There kis no vacuum cleaner so a wipe down and sweep out is all that is needed. Other facilities include a hammock,gas BBQ, picnic table, bird-table and a there's a kids cottage nearby.
We had a great stay and were sorry to be heading back to the city. We will do our best to be back!!
