Leura Rose Cottage
Self-contained luxury Blue Mountains
Nestled high amidst the pines and ferns sits Leura Rose, a historic Blue Mountains cottage restored to its original grandeur.
With no detail overlooked, Leura Rose is your perfect Blue Mountains accommodation, perfectly located in a quiet area just ten minutes stroll to Leura village. Surrounded by a lush rambling garden, the cottage is secluded and private – you’ll enjoy having this charming house all to yourself during your stay, relaxed and romantic.
Leura Rose has three luxuriously appointed bedrooms, all with mahogany four-poster beds, the finest linen, soft lighting and electric blankets to keep you toasty warm.
Kitchen and Dining
The cottage has a fully equipped mahogany kitchen looking out onto the rambling garden, with French doors opening out to a north-facing sun-drenched veranda, complete with alfresco dining and BBQ. A large dining table in the kitchen seats six, and a second dining table in the lounge is perfect for a relaxed meal by the gas log fire.
Watch the colourful birdlife feasting on the various berry trees, whilst sipping away at your favourite Twinings tea or indulge in that wicked hot chocolate with marshmallows, all of which are provided with our compliments.
The spa bathroom may be the highlight of your stay at Leura Rose – a large double spa overlooks the garden, and a gas log fire creates a warm ambience, as do the flickering candles that are provided for your stay. The floor is heated, and soft music fills the room thanks to hidden ceiling speakers linked to the hi fi system.
A second bathroom includes toilet and shower, with fluffy towels, bathrobes and fine toiletries included.
Relax in the private drawing room set amongst some beautiful old books, soft lighting and a collection of relaxing music, a perfect place to unwind with your complimentary port.
The cottage is centrally heated throughout, with two natural gas-log fireplaces, cosy lounge/dining room with large flat-screen TV, Austar and DVD, Hi-Fi, CDs, DVDs, books and games.
