TAKE A YOGA CLASS
Warm clothing is recommended for the cooler months and so are long pants and covered shoes for nature walks around the property. Bring swimmers for the spa!
HAVE A MASSAGE
If you would like a rejuvenating massage, this could be organised on prior booking.
The cottage has a fully equipped kitchenette with gas stove, microwave and a small fridge, as well as kettle, toaster, sandwich press and bread maker! (oven not available).
Provided also are cooking utensils and crockery, salt and pepper grinders and sugar, etc - feel free to bring your food provisions and cooking oils. Due to distance from shops, we suggest organising shopping prior to arrival - the major supermarkets (open till late) are at Katoomba and Lithgow, or local shops at Blackheath (close at 5pm).
Your cottage has its own BBQ on the deck - BBQ wipes are provided for wiping off excess grease.
Please clean up thoroughly after yourself, including drying and putting away dishes.
Each cottage has its own water tank for collecting rain water. Our water is very clean, clear and sweet. It may sometimes be dyed by the falling gum leaves, which is harmless. However for extra safety, it is recommended that you boil all water before you drink.
ENJOY A GUIDED MEDITATION
To enjoy movies and music, you will find a monitor, and a DVD/CD player. Feel free to bring your favourites. The monitor will also accept USBs. There is no TV reception offered in the cottages.
ATTEND A WORKSHOP
For the cooler months (April to September), we are happy to provide a firewood bundle to you free of charge. This includes the delivery of the first load of wood with kindling, fire starters and gloves, plus access to wood as needed during your stay from the wood shed along the circular drive.
ATTEND AN EVENING CONCERT
There are two Alpacas roaming on the property. They are lovely and gentle animals but can get very excited about their treats (the pellets in the bucket are like lollies to them). So rather than serving them by hand, we recommend putting the treats on the ground.
