The Love Shack is a private guesthouse nestled amongst the trees on the edge of the Blue Mountains, overlooking Sydney. Recently renovated to add a touch of luxury to your stay, The Love Shack is the ultimate couples retreat. Our property and home, Carisbrooke, is located in beautiful Kurrajong Heights, approximately 1 hour from Sydney CBD. In the local area, you will find many beautiful wedding venues, the apple and cider centre at Bilpin, and easy access to the Blue Mountains.
“Really great little place to make a base of operations. We stayed at the Love Shack because we were attending a wedding nearby and enjoyed a lovely picnic out on the balcony despite the fog and rain. The moody weather actually made for a dramatic backdrop which was lovely with some red wine. The shower is fantastic as well. Absolutely nothing negative to say about this place.”
Clyde Cottage is part of Glenhuntly Estate. Privately nestled into the stunning grounds the cottage exudes a calm and tranquil feel. Ideally set up for couples, with bedrooms in separate ends of the house both opening to private decks. Unwind in the heated outdoor spa while star gazing, throw a picnic rug down on the rolling lawns, or dangle your feet in the lake while siting on the jetty with a glass of wine?
“I couldn't recommend this property more, what a hidden little slice of paradise! The cottage is perfect for literally anyone; family, friends and romantic getaways. You are first greeted with a beautiful landscape, if you are feeling up to it you can have a go on the FLYING FOX (yes you heard right) a little dingy and an amazing communal outdoor area with a gazebo and picturesque views. Now let's talk about the cottage itself.....When you first walk through the door it just has a sense of cosiness which will instantly put a smile on your face. The layout, interior design, artwork, fireplace and other features gives the property a great sense of style and warmth, then outback of your cottage you also have a spa and BBQ to enjoy. If you enjoy exploring it is only a short drive away from hikes in the mountainous and the two hosts (Tony & David) are extremely helpful and really do try to go above and beyond to help their guests! It is close to an IGA, Hillbilly cider, delicious apple pies with apples picked fresh in the bilpin area and you can even chose to go pick fresh apples...amongst many other activities this is just a few we noticed and chose to get involved in, yet if we didn't go during the manic COVID-19 time, I am sure we would seek out other adventures like motorbike or mountain bike trial riding etc. It is a peaceful getaway, away from the 'hussel and bussel' and a spot to really relax and unwind. We had a great stay and can't wait to come back and visit again.”
