Relax in the beautiful warmth of a unique strawbale cottage after spending the day enjoying the stunning natural beauty of the Blue Mountains. Situated in Leura but backing onto bushland, you'll adore the cosy atmosphere and comforts in this home away from home.


Thanks for your interest in our listing :) By now, most people are aware that greater Sydney (including the Blue Mountains) is under a lockdown until at least Midnight on Friday July 30 (if it's not extended further). This means, most people cannot leave home and travel. There are some minor exemptions. These are: if it is necessary to travel for work; if it is to flee a family violence situation; and if you are leaving temporary accommodation and cannot return home and therefore need new temporary accommodation. Please do not book our accommodation unless you are satisfied that you fall into one of these exemption categories. Also, please do not travel if you have been to one of the designated hotspot locations. Information about all this can be found online by searching "Latest COVID-19 case locations and alerts in NSW" and "Public Health (COVID-19 Temporary Movement and Gathering Restrictions) Order 2021". Our cancellation policy allows cancellations up to 5 days before travel. Thank you.

The Strawbale Cottage is a north-facing, split-level, open-plan design. It is filled with natural light during the day, and looks out over natural bushland. It is earth rendered and the majority of the materials are sourced from demolition yards or scavenged. It has a slow combustion fireplace that heats the whole space. Everything you need to light a cosy fire is supplied, including kindling, firewood, firestarters and matches. There are also two portable electric heaters for use as back up.

The sleeping area consists of a queen sized bed (equipped with an electric blanket) on the upper level and a single bed tucked around the corner under the loft. There is a small clothes hanging rack. The bathroom, which is also on the upper level is a full sized space consisting of a beautiful restored recycled claw foot bath/shower. Great for a long soak. There is also a front loading washing machine and a clothes dryer in the bathroom.

There is a ladder that leads to a loft area which is currently set up as a reading/relaxing space. It gets a lot of afternoon sun and is a great place for a bit of a nap. The Cottage has been well stocked with books. There are lots of fiction and reference books, mostly on gardening and building. If you are half way through a book at the end of your stay I'm sure we can come to an arrangement :). The reference books will have to stay though.

Downstairs consists of the fire place, a comfortable loungeroom, television and DVD player. There is a well equipped kitchen with a microwave, fridge, electric frypan, two-burner electric hotplates, a small oven with a griller. The bottom level also has a dining table that seats four people.

We will provide you with tea and coffee and milk of your choice.

There are french doors that lead to large decks on both levels with an outdoor table on the bottom deck.

The cottage was built by Dan, so if you are interested in how it was all done please feel free to ask.

The cottage is down the back of the property behind the main house. It is about 40 metres from the road down a number of gentle steps.

It is a 25 minute walk into Leura mall and to the train station. You will find many coffee / dining options and lots of good shopping. There is also a supermarket, post office, newsagent and a great bottle shop!

In addition to the many well known tourist attractions in the Blue Mountains, there are some undiscovered gems we can direct you to nearby our property. There are bush walks and the area is perfect for mountain biking! For example it is a 15km ride along Mount Hay Road (which becomes a fair/reasonably maintained dirt road not far past our place) to one of the most amazing views you are likely to see. Mount Hay Road can also be accessed by most cars and there are many beautiful walks including to Blue Gum Forest, Lockley's Pylon and Flat Top.

Please note, although it is normally a minimum 2 night stay, during quiet periods and when single nights are available in the calendar, these are set to allow 1 night stays. Please feel free to go ahead and book a single night if the calendar allows you to, otherwise please contact us and ask if you can stay for 1 night only.

The property is not suitable for pets. We get many enquiries from people wishing to bring their pets but as there is inadequate fencing around the cottage and it backs onto native bushland, we do not allow pets.

Her skal du være

Leura, New South Wales, Australien

We live in a quiet, friendly neighbourhood. It has a bush / rural feel which is quite different from the south side of Leura which is more of a European feel.
