Very large home but could be better
23 of us stayed in the manor and masters quarters for the weekend. The house is large and plenty of room for everyone although the lounge room is a bit cramped and not enough seating for all. The kitchen is fabulous for preparing food for a large crowd and the fridge is massive. The property description does say it's on 2 acres but most of it is gated off with private property signs on them. You really only have the outdoor area and a small lawn below that. I imagined we would be able to wander around the property but that wasn't the case.
I only have a few complaints. The home could have been cleaner. The bedside tables were really dusty as were the bedding in some rooms. It seems that if they haven't been slept in they don't get changed and the open fire places chimney seemed a bit clogged and the home filled with smoke on a few occasions even with the fan going and the windows open. We also found a rolled up sheet and underblanket in a wardrobe that smelled very strongly of urine and some old bagels and bread on the shelf in the kitchen that were hardly recognisable. I must say though that on arrival some beds didn't have electric blankets on them which they should have and they went out of their way to get some new ones for us which was very good of management.
Overall I would recommend staying here for a large group although I do think it was overpriced for the quality of the home. We have stayed in nicer ones for less.

Great house, perfect for our extended family!
We really enjoyed it. Plenty of room for everyone to sit together at meals and to play board games etc. It was toasty warm even though it was 3 degrees outside and blowing a gale. The team at Blue Mountains Escapes were easy to deal with & very helpful. We'll be back!

Excellent venue for a large family get together
The house is well equipped and plenty of room for three to four families.
Whilst on the expensive side it is value for money for a large group.

Great Family Getaway
Terrific property to house a large number of people. Plenty of beds, couches, toilets, fridge space, parking space and outdoor seating. Cooking was easy with two ovens/cooktops and a large outdoor BBQ. Very beautiful and peaceful setting with wonderful views right from the back patio.
