Idyllic!

5 of 5
An elderly couple, we stayed at Brookside Cottage for two nights, 19th & 20th January. We had a relative with us, visiting from Scotland. She described it as "idyllic". The cottage was lovely; spacious, extremely well equipped, every comfort, spotlessly clean. And the outlook over the gardens, the creek and the Darwin Walk! It was an extremely hot weekend, but the cottage stayed cool and we enjoyed our doonas at night. We hope to return, perhaps in the winter when we can enjoy the fire and sit and read in the glass nook, in the sun. Many thanks to the owners.

All you need for a restful stay - pets included!

Such an inviting welcome as we arrived! - A/C on, soft music playing, dog bowl filled with water and fridged stocked with basics so we didn't need to rush to the shop. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Secret Garden Cottage and felt welcome and well-rested as we left. The garden was wonderful and shady in the hot summer with beautiful nooks to sit and read or just wander about in. Convenient to the centre of Katoomba but still beautifully quiet. Our dog Coco thoroughly enjoyed it too (Fiona has helpfully provided lots of local tips for dog owners on holidays and has an obvious love for dogs!) We'll be back!
