A lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We've had a delightful weekend at Lorna despite relentless rain for almost the entire time!

I took my elderly mother for a break and had a very happy experience.

Caroline, the property owner, very kindly allowed us both an early check in and late check out.

The cottage, though only two bedroom and seemingly small from the outside, is perfect for two people or even two couples. Two bedrooms at the front, then a generous sized kitchen and dining room with seating for eight, followed by a lovely sitting room that opens via French doors onto a gorgeous parterre garden that seems to go on forever. The garden has a series of lovely spots for sitting divided by hedges and paths with lovely furniture - from cafe, to dining, to lounging. Unfortunately, due to the weather, we did not get to avail ourselves of any of these pretty retreats.

Happily the cottage also possess an excellent library of books, DVDs and games so we had plenty to occupy ourselves when we're weren't dining at one of the numerous the good restaurant within walking distance......though I confess we drove to avoid being washed away!

The cottage is filled with French style objects and art, spotlessly clean (and there must be a lot of dusting required), has instant central heating, stylish and functional bathrooms and kitchen.

We'd have very happily stayed a week.

A charming cottage with plenty of little luxuries

  • 5 of 5

We have just stayed for the second time at Lorna and once again we have enjoyed a wonderful few days in this gorgeous little cottage. Carolyn goes to so much trouble to ensure that her cottage includes a few little luxuries. The furnishings are a joy, the garden is just lovely and there are wonderful touches throughout - fresh flowers in the bedrooms, candles aplenty and lovely serving plates and glasses if you decide to eat in (we ate in the first night and then enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Darleys, Lilianfels, the second evening). The beds are very comfortable, there are interesting magazines, books DVDs and games and Leura Mall is a short and very pleasurable stroll away. Carolyn had tweaked and updated furnishings since we last stayed a few years back...she really does want her guests to enjoy each visit. We'll be back :).

Beautiful cottage. Best in the Blue Mountains

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a weekend in early spring and the house is the best we've stayed in. The owner was friendly and made our stay hassle free. The house is very clean, modern but has the touches of an original cottage. The furniture is comfortable and the layout is spacious. The garden is amazing and the house was equipped with everything from personal bathroom items and the kitchen had a coffee pod machine as well as well stocked pantry and cooking appliances. The nicest touch was a complimentary red wine on arrival. Will come back here again soon.

Charming escape

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Lorna@Leura and found the place absolutely charming. The place was immaculately clean, delightfully decorated with all the comforts of home. I loved looking out at the lovely back yard.We felt cosy warm and away from it all. It is very close to Leura, just a walk away with many cafes and restaurants to choose from.
