Strawberry Patch is a secluded, cosy and romantic cottage in Leura, in the Blue Mountains. The century-old cottage has been meticulously and lovingly restored so you can have a luxurious and private retreat getaway, only minutes from Leura Village.
Strawberry Patch is a classic Blue Mountains weatherboard cottage, with all the grace and style of its era. Built in 1912, and with lush garden surroundings, it’s the perfect romantic retreat or family getaway.
Let’s take a look inside……
When you first enter Strawberry Patch, the cosy lounge room embraces you with its warm gas log fire and plush lounges promising warm nights and great conversation. You’ll find complimentary port, wine and chocolate to help you settle down by the fire, while the large flat screen TV (complete with DVD and Austar) and hi-fi with a range of CD’s will help you relax from your everyday life.
The dining room and kitchen overlook the lush cottage garden, while you can step out into the courtyard directly from the dining room. The Tasmanian Oak kitchen is equipped with everything you need, and you’ll find quality, locally-sourced breakfast provisions including fresh bread, ground coffee, a range of teas, juice, milk, jam, marmalade, butter and cereals.
Did we mention that both the kitchen and dining room have floor heating to keep your toes warm?
Take your breakfast or lunch out in the courtyard, and at night, dim the lights and dine by the warm glow of the slow-combustion log fire.
Let’s step away from the dining areas for now, and take a look at where you’ll be relaxing at night.
There are two luxurious bedrooms at Strawberry Patch, both with mahogany four-poster beds where you’ll find the finest Egyptian cotton linen. The master bedroom has a queen bed and in the second bedroom you’ll find a double bed. Both bedrooms feature sheepskin electric blankets and plump pillows ensuring you have a comfortable, warm and peaceful night’s sleep, waking up ready to discover what the Blue Mountains has to offer.
For a weekend (or week) of romance you can’t go past relaxing with a glass of Champagne in the double spa, set in a bay window overlooking the garden. This French inspired bathroom features under floor heating, candles, fine toiletries, the softest and fluffiest towels you’ll find and Egyptian cotton bathrobes.
Run the spa, dim the lights, pop some soft music on (the hi-fi in the lounge area will send music through to the bathroom through discreet ceiling speakers) and let the worries of the world wash away.
At Mountain Whispers we know that holidays mean relaxing, and that means you don’t always want to go out exploring. The private and secluded gardens at Strawberry Patch give you the perfect spot to relax, surrounded by nature. Take a book and find a little spot in the garden, or just sit out in the courtyard with a pot of tea and take in your surroundings.
Strawberry Patch is perfect at any time of the year; if you’re looking for somewhere to getaway during the year, rekindle your romance or just need some seclusion and time to yourself, book Strawberry Patch today.
