Tanglewood - a private garden retreat

Bedrooms 2
Space 322 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Tanglewood is a delightful two bedroom house nestled in an expansive, 1500 sq metre, mountain garden. The house is situated in South Leura and is in the centre of the area containing many of the famous Leura gardens.

There is a large sunny living area which looks out onto the private and extensive garden. The house is north facing so that it is sunny in winter. The kitchen is very well equipped and linen and towels are provided.

The house is heated by a gas log fire in the living area. The fire is very warm, cosy and easy to operate.

The two bedrooms each contain a queen size bed with electric blankets. Each room looks into the garden and is bright and sunny.

Character and charm abound in this tastefully decorated mountain home.

Here are some comments from people who stayed recently

5 out of 5 stars.


Beautiful house and surrounds.

We had a lovely couple of days at this property. The house is very comfortable, clean, and warm. And the garden completely surrounds the house so that it felt like a private hideaway. The kitchen had everything we needed and it was close to all the things we wanted to see in the Blue Mountains. We are going to come back next year for sure.

Very enjoyable stay.

We stayed a couple of nights at Tanglewood with some friends and really enjoyed the visit. The house was very cosy with its log gas fire and typically Stayz quality neat and tidy accommodation. If time had allowed we would all like to have stayed a couple more nights.

Tanglewood is situated in a beautiful part of South Leura. It is within walking distance to the historic Leura Mall with its renowned restaurants and cafes, "Everglades" garden is close by and the Three Sisters is a short drive to Katoomba.

Tangelwood is surrounded by many famous gardens which are open to the public during spring. In spring the area is alive with cherry and peach blossoms. In autumn the colours of the leaves are wonderful.

Really nice place, great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed out stay at this well cared for property. Only small consideration is noise from trains and traffic at night. I am light sleeper so it was not as quiet as I hoped. Great location, cosy and clean.

Excellent value for money

  • 5 of 5

We we lucky to book for the first weekend of the Leura Gardens Festival, and were able to walk to almost all of the gardens from here, over the long weekend.

I also really love the big open lounge/dining area, with lovely views of the garden. The gas fire kept us warm on the cold day, and the sunny lounge was beautiful to relax in after all that walking!

We enjoyed our few days at Tanglewood. House is very cosy, roomy, clean, private and good value. Cook in or walk to local restaurants. Would recommend for a mountains getaway. Very relaxing.
