A 1907 cottage, lovely gardens and sweeping country views. Big TV, supply of DVD's and good internet. 5 min drive to Kurrajong. House is very clean and hosts were welcoming. As others have said, the view from the bath is a highlight.

Just an hour and half from Sydney, close to Kurrajong village. Quiet and fantastic night sky. John is a welcoming host and ensured we had everything we needed. Can highly recommend Hermitage Cottage for a weekend retreat or longer.
