About the property




'Lilyfield' is an original, renovated weatherboard. The house has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and the newly built, self contained studio has its own kitchenette, bathroom (with shower) PLUS private balcony. The house & studio are set in a large garden that extends beyond the studio down to a permanently running creek (just outside the back garden gate). The property is walking distance to Leura shops but is surrounded on two sides by bush - so there is complete privacy!

Flexible space to suit families, couples, groups of friends.

Interaction with Guests :


We have self-check-in, 24 hours. Guests have the entire property during their stay (house, garden + studio). Should you require anything, we can be contacted 24/7.

The Neighbourhood :


Visit the shops and cafes at Leura. We highly recommend The Garage (restaurant), The Deli, The Indian Restaurant and of course, the Sweetie Shop. Visit Everglades house and garden, Leura Cascades or further afield, the Three Sisters, Katoomba, The Katoomba Scenic Railway, Blackheath antique shops, the Megalong and Kanimbla Valleys for horse riding and afternoon tea at the newly opened Hydro Majestic. Have a picnic at the Wentworth Falls Lake (where there is some great play equipment for the kids and a walk on the foreshore), or an easy bush walk for the kids along the creek to the waterfall at Darwin Walk, Wentworth Falls.

Getting around :


The house is about a 10/15 minute walk from Leura train station (downhill from the Station) or you can get a taxi (about 2 minutes from the station).

Should you wish to hire a car during your stay, the house is a short walk away from a Hertz rent a car business. You will need to book well in advance! Please contact me for details.

Also, if you take the tourist bus from Leura (which is a hop on/hop off service that travels on a circuit around the main sites in Leura & Katoomba all day) it can drop you outside the front door on your way home!

Testimonials :


"Wow. Wow. Wow. What a lovely place and generous hosts. The beds were so comfy and feel of the place relaxing and positive. We loved it. We stayed in the little house in a dream oasis with our dear friends in the big house. Perfect weekend."

Fiona & Rick, February 2015


"Fiona & Graham made us feel so welcomed at their place, the photo's also doesn’t do justice for the place! It has great living and entertaining area's with all the necessities you need. The "Lilyfield" is the perfect getaway from the busy city life to spend with family and/or friends. Our family spent Christmas here, and had a fantastic time! We'll definitely stay again if we're in the area, but will recommend to friends and family."

Angela, December 2014

Wonderful House for stay in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

Just enjoyed four lovely days in the mountains staying at Lilyfield

House was perfect for a large group, beds were comfy, large yard for the dogs and kids to explore

Studio was perfect for a separate getaway for those wanting to get away from main house with the perfect view over bushland setting

Short walk (uphill but it is the mountains) to lovely Leura

highly recommend the local Butcher to stock up on supplies for a BBQ and Café Madeline for breakfast

Only slight negative is busy road at front of house

Fiona was excellent responding to some minor requests for information

Great few days

  • 5 of 5

We were a large family group and found Lilyfield to be perfect.

The house itself is in a wonderful location, presents great and has excellent amenities.

On top of that the hosts made every effort to accommodate us. From organising cots and highchairs to leaving all the basics in the house so you don't have to bring everything (which is rare in holiday houses these days) our group thoroughly enjoyed the stay.

Great place and great value! We will be back!

Versatile property,something for everyone.

  • 5 of 5

The property accommodated our 4 children and 7 grandchildren with ease and provided for all our needs. We enjoyed a super family gathering. Bush walkers set off directly from the property for younger walkers and easy access to Leura village for coffees and brunches for the non-walkers. A highly recommended property.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a place which would be "home" for a week and in which we could host friends and family at different times. Lilyfield provided the perfect accommodation to delight everyone who came to celebrate my 70th Birthday. Every visitor expressed appreciation of the lovely décor, the comfort and the abundance offered in every room of the house. Our stay was filled with love and laughter, enhanced by our beautiful surroundings. It was a lovely week. Thank you to Fiona and Graham.
