Just over two hours drive from Sydney or Canberra is Lothlorien, a secluded five acre property nestled below Black Ash Nature Reserve on Berry Mountain. The villages of Berry and Kangaroo Valley are just ten minutes drive away, the beaches 20. The self-contained timber Yurt offers an unpretentious hideaway for two. Tucked in to the edge of the rainforest and set in a small orchard this sunny north-facing Mongolian-style Yurt is regularly visited by wombats, parrots, bowerbirds and lyrebirds
“The Yurt is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship situated far enough from Bob and Noreen's house for some privacy and quiet but close enough if you did need to ask them for something. We didn't, as they provided us with everything we needed for our stay - multiple choices for breakfast, information about the area and even cushions for the chairs outside. They really have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We also enjoyed the wildlife we could see, right from the Yurt's front porch or within 5 minutes of walking - so many birds, wombats and even some kangaroos in the distance.”
Relax in a beautiful rainforest setting and wake up to the mountain bird song. The fire will be set for you to enjoy and keep cosy and warm by in the winter months. Seasonal fresh herbs and our free range eggs will be available most of the year. The cottage is clean comfortable and well equipped for cooking your own meals and only 12 minutes from Berry where there are numerous restaurants and cafes. Perfect for two for a weekend escape or digital detox.
“Boobook Cottage was a magical weekend away for us and our 2 girls. The location was perfect, close enough to Berry to be able to pop out for dinner, and far enough away to feel like the only people on earth. The cottage was sparkling clean and very well equipped for cooking and also staying in and playing games. The property is magical and it was a pleasure to wake up hearing a multitude of different birds and feeling healthier just breathing in the freshness. We would highly recommend to stay here if you want a relaxing and peaceful getaway.”
Overlooking the Barrengarry Mountain-range, midway between the villages of Kangaroo Valley and Berry, this beautiful house is an oasis that we have found no one wants to leave. The property is located atop 7 acres of undisturbed rainforest that serves as an incredible amphitheatre for the rich birdsong of the Australian bush.
“Amazing experience. So tranquil being in nature, soaking in the hot tub whilst enjoying the sounds of the birds and then getting to make our own wood fired pizza was fantastic. Highly recommend.”
