About the property

Leura Banksia Cottage offers a unique self-contained accommodation experience, beautifully nestled in tranquil Leura bushland, in the heart of the pristine Blue Mountains.

This modern cottage accommodates up to six people featuring three queen bedrooms, two spacious bathrooms (one with a spa bath), a fully equiped gourmet kitchen, and sophisticated lounge with entertainment system.

It enjoys ideal access to the amenities and attractions of the Blue Mountains region where you can take advantage of the proximity of many of the best bush walks in the world!

If you're feeling active, cross the road and join the scenic bush walk along 'Lyrebird Dell' down to 'Gordon Falls' and expereince first hand the beauty of the 'Pool of Siloam'. Then sit back and enjoy a glass of wine on the private deck, take in the stunning bushland view and toss your worries to the wind!

"How lucky we were to find your cottage...We felt privileged to stay... more like being the guests in someone

22/4/2011

We just wanted to thank you for a wonderful stay in your delightful cottage - well it is hardly a cottage, but more like a beautiful home which is both very well designed and extremely tastefully furnished. It is very evident that you have put a great deal of time and thought into every aspect

of the cottage and its architecture. Our UK guests were absolutely delighted and told us that it is the nicest place they have ever stayed in.

So many thanks, Anne & Andy.

PS. We loved the way the fire heated piped heat into the bedrooms - very

clever!

Fabulous property

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home, it had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay, the home is very spacious, warm and in a very peaceful setting, lots of trees, great views from all windows. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with our two adult children and their partners, Would recommend a stay for anyone wanting a peaceful break.

Excellent holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

We had guests from overseas and stayed for 2 nights in this lovely cottage/home. The place was clean and spacious, well equipped for all needs, in a beautiful surrounding. Two nights was not enough to enjoy all there was to do, including a bushwalk right on our doorstep. Even though it was cold and wintery outside, the place was beautiful and warm, and the fireplace made it even more special. The beds were comfy, and the view from our bedroom superb. Can thoroughly recommend!

Wonderful hidden gem

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at Banksia cottage. The house was clean and very cosy. The heater and fireplace kept the house warm on the cold winter nights. Bush walks are across the road and Leaura was only a short drive away. Bush views were amazing too!

Far exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Banksia Cottaqe. The day was cold but the home was warm, inviting and cozy. The view is spectacular, right on the bush. We had gathered for my sisters birthday so we had lunch on the verandah overlooking the bush. The photos don't do it justice. The home was clean and light. Such a pleasure to stay here. The chocolates and welcome letter from the owners topped it off. Cant recommend highly enough.
