About the property

#1 RANKED property in Wentworth Falls on STAYZ.

Winner - 2017 TripAdvisor Award for Excellence.

Winner - 2013 TripAdvisor Top Vacation Rental.

Nestled alongside Australia's breathtaking Blue Mountains' World Heritage National Park, Poet's Cottage offers elegant accommodation with the charm of a bygone era, only 90 minutes from Sydney's CBD.

Originally built in 1912, the cottage is located on the edge of the beautiful Valley of the Waters in historic Wentworth Falls. The cottage has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and accommodates up to 7 guests.

This stylishly restored and extended 105-year-old property offers the best of both worlds - tranquility and quiet away from the tourist crowds yet it's just a quick 5-minute drive from charming Leura village.

Self-contained, with plenty of pampering comforts, the cottage offers an open plan lounge and dining area with a new freestanding gas log fireplace and a well equipped kitchen. Snuggle up in the three bedrooms with a queen bed, a double bed, one king single and two single beds.

Watch honeyeaters sip flower nectar while relaxing on your entertainment deck, or wander through the large garden before enjoying the beauty of the world heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park, which backs directly onto the property. Then return to the cottage for a pampering spa.

Poet's Cottage is perfect for couples, families, trekkers and nature and bird lovers.

For a romantic, adventure or family getaway of simple elegance and comfort, spoil yourself and enjoy all the Blue Mountains has to offer. We would like for you to experience our little piece of heaven.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

'Poet's Cottage' is an outstanding example of a holiday house done right. The attention to detail is wonderful, with little gifts on arrival, and no expense spared with the linen and kitchen utensils. The house itself is beautifully maintained, and the location is remote enough to appreciate the silence of the mountains, whilst central enough to make a quick trip to the shops an easy affair. We found the cottage very family friendly, our one year old son could run around to his heart's content, and the provided porta-cot was very helpful. Would definitely recommend for anything from a romantic retreat to a family weekend away.

Beautiful cottage in tranquil setting

  • 5 of 5

I adore staying here! It's the perfect home away from home. The host, Sophia, organises everything so beautifully that all you have to do is show up ready to relax (hard job, I know). Even the food essentials are taken care of, with plenty of tea and coffee options available and a pantry stocked with delicious basics. The location is perfect for exploring; Wentworth Falls offers some great tracks (we saw lyrebirds and black cockatoos within minutes of arriving) and a few minutes up the road there is of course Leura and Katoomba with the best cafes and gift shops (recommend a trip to quirky Bygone Beauty's Teashop for best scones around). At the end of the day, soak those stiff joints in the amazing spa bath and curl up in your comfy bed.

I highly recommend staying at Poet's Cottage. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.
