The Gatehouse has been lovingly constructed using natural building materials, mostly recycled and reclaimed, and boasts many sustainability features such as solar power and water recycling for the garden. In the limestone walls you can see the tiny fossils of corals and sea creatures which were present when the limestone was first formed.
The cottage is warm and welcoming with a rustic charm but with modern amenities to ensure a comfortable stay. The cottage looks out over the garden where you will sometimes see our resident wallabies and lyre birds. It is set across the garden from the main house but it is fully self-contained with carport attached. The access is level with no steep steps or obstacles. Amenities include a modern kitchen with induction cook-top, air conditioning, heating, TV and internet and there is a great collection of books, games and DVDs for your entertainment.
There is a double bed in the bedroom and in the living area there is a double sofa bed with a sprung mattress and a single bed with a foam mattress. The space can accommodate up to 5 people but is best suited to 2-4 people.
The north facing veranda is perfect for enjoying the day's sunshine or relaxing at sunset and there is a private garden area beside the Gatehouse with a barbeque and outdoor setting. You are free to wander around the main garden and through our private bush.
We are always happy to share our produce when available. We have a small flock of chickens and we are beekeepers.
We are a short drive from all the best bush walks, cafes and attractions the Blue Mountains has to offer with Katoomba being only 6 kms away and Leura 4 kms.
The Gatehouse is perfect for a quiet, relaxing getaway.
Other things to note
Pets are 'by arrangement' as we have no fence and lots of wildlife. We also keep horses on the property.
