Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
A fully self-contained historic worker's cottage set among spectacular cool climate exotics and native bush-land. Govetts Cottage is simplistic Australian rustic charm. A two minute drive to quaint Leura Village, or a five minuet drive to historic Katoomba, yet feels as though the hassles of the modern world are a million miles away.

Due to Covid 19, we are leaving 24hrs between all guest bookings to allow for thorough cleaning. Cleaning fee has increased accordingly from $40 to $60

Location

Leura, New South Wales, Australia

Though extremely close to the village (1.7km), Govetts Cottage is situated in a quiet and serene part of Leura away from the hustle and bustle. No bus loads of tourists frequent our streets, and the railway and highway cannot be heard. Unlike in the village, there is ample free unlimited parking. With just a brisk 1.7km walk up the hill or a 2min drive, you are right in the heart of Leura, with all the glorious shops, restaurants, cafes, gardens, lookouts, and bushwalks. Equally, we are situated only 3km from Katoomba Village. Katoomba is home to the three-sisters, scenic world, and has a plethora of cafes, restaurants, and specialty retail on offer.

During your stay
Hosts and their children are often in the garden and will be coming and going from the property so you may catch glimpses of them here and there. They are happy to answer any questions, but you will not see much of them (if at all) throughout your stay. The cottage is approximately 20m from the main house, which can be seen from the porch. The living room, bedroom and bathrooms face bush-land and are completely private. While you are most welcome to wander the grounds around the cottage and visit the creek by the cottage, please be advised that the area around the main house including its deck and the gardens from the main house onwards are off-limits to guests. The same courtesy will be afforded guests - hosts will not enter the porch, garden space, or creek around the cottage during your stay to ensure your complete privacy.
