Charming 'Prudence', set amongst 60 year old rhododendrons, azaleas, pine trees and extensive garden - including organic vegetables and herbs, will delight you. Enjoy the environment exclusively, including our organic vegies, depending on the season.

Filled with light, 'Prudence' has big views of the garden from every room, has lovely ambience and opens from the dining room to verandah through large sliding glass doors.

'Prudence' has two large well appointed bedrooms and great beds with fine cotton sheets, feather duvets, electric blankets, and plenty of spare warm blankets.

Relax inside in the comfortable, ornate art deco lounge room, chat around the dining table or outside enjoying a drink in one of the many private corners of the garden, designed and planted by Prudence Day in the 1950s.

Enjoy birdwatching and possum spotting at night. Ring tail possums can be seen easily in the trees at 'Prudence'. I leave you a rechargeable spotlight so you can see the night wildlife. To ensure the safety of the wildlife, we are unable to welcome dogs at 'Prudence'.

You are welcome to cook with our organic vegies and herbs on the commercial Bertazzoni stove in the new kitchen, Basic ingredients are always available so you can enjoy the well appointed kitchen if you like to cook.

We have wifi, and the usual mp3/ipod dock so you can enjoy your own music and TV and dvd player.

A weekend or a few days at 'Prudence' is just the thing for rest, total peace and a really different experience.

Our fabulous location

We are close to Govetts Leap and the lovely Braeside walk, in an extremely quiet area in Blackheath with large gardens and wide streets.

Being close to the National Park and with large trees, 'Prudence' has abundant birdlife - Wonga pigeons, crimson rosellas, kookaburras and bowerbirds live here.

We are within walking distance to both the village and Govetts Leap. Try one of Blackheaths great restaurants if you feel like eating out, or have a drink at one of our friendly hotels. Both do a good raffle on Friday night.... a great way to meet the locals!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely stay We really enjoyed our stay at 'Prudence' for a long weekend during the Winter school holidays. We felt very well provided for with breakfast supplies, ample firewood, a lovely living area with comfy sofas, an excellent kitchen and comfortable, warm beds. It was a very cold weekend when we stayed but the fire and gas heater in the living room were very efficient and there are heaters in both bedrooms. Lots of space in each room and a beautiful garden to look out on (with chickens). Liz was also very attentive, checking in with us a couple of times to make sure that all was okay. We will be back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok but Freezing!! This property is quiet nice but not for winter. The house was so cold that it sadly really spoiled our stay. There were no heaters in the bedrooms and only one gas heater and fire in the living room but this didn't heat beyond the main living space. As a result the nights were really uncomfortable which unfortunately spoiled our stay and we ended up with very sick children. Also nearly all of the windows were missing blinds, including in the bedrooms which added to the cold. And there was a washing machine but no dryer. It also didn't feel super clean. It is however in a good location and in spring when it is warmer and the garden is a bit more alive I can imagine it would have a different feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful house and garden We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Prudence. The house is as pretty as a picture and the gardens are a delight to walk in and enjoy. It was lovely to be provided with a breakfast hamper and homemade bread which meant we could have a leisurely morning at the house before heading off to explore the sights. We're certainly looking forward to our next stay. Thanks for sharing your house and garden Liz.
