The modern bathroom is fitted with a luxury, double side-by-side spa. A natural gas hot water system ensures endless piping hot water.
The french windows give a private view to the leafy garden from the spa. Guests have no need to lower the blinds whilst engaged in the exhausting pastime of luxuriating in the bubbles and watching the birdlife.
At night you can dim the overhead lights, put on the music and relax awhile, sipping champagne, before walking to some of the finest restaurants in the Blue Mountains - or maybe don't go out at all...

THE REAR DECK
To the rear of the cottage, French doors open on to a private north-facing decking (a perfect little suntrap). A teak outdoor setting and period bench provide an idyllic and restful place to enjoy the tranquility of the garden.
A gas barbecue with two cylinders (to ensure that you never run out of gas) may inspire you to take a break from Leura's restaurants and to dine 'al fresco'.
A feature of the cottage is a unique sculpture garden which can be viewed from the rear deck. The beautiful individually carved stone, wire and wooden sculptures are mounted on strategically placed plinths which allow for visual enjoyment from the cottage back deck.
