There's also a host of wine bars, top quality restaurants, casual dining or gastronomic pubs to ensure your evenings are enjoyable. Nearby is an excellent golf course, stunning local scenery and bushwalks. Leura Garden Festival and Leura Village Fair are popular events held in October each year.

The Bothy is a very unique getaway destination where you can rest, relax and revitalise your senses.
Upstairs you can enjoy playing board games or watching a movie. Downstairs you can relax with a good book and a glass of wine, or the deck you can enjoy a barbecue or a group meal as you take in the natural surrounds.

A large flat screen TV with Foxtel pay TV connection is also upstairs.
The separate lounge areas upstairs and downstairs provides plenty of space for all your family and friends to enjoy.
Sit on the completely private decks, enjoy the bush outlooks and feel you are away from it all, while still being minutes to Leura Mall village, crammed with antique shops, galleries, great cafes, a bookstore and award winning restaurants.

You'll fall in love with Leura, and The Bothy will steal your heart
The Bothy is a place for you to relax and unwind. As the blue hue seeps over the mountains, the warmth of the cabin's potbelly fire will keep you warm and cosy throughout winter, and the sunshine on the lower deck will make your summertime stay utterly splendid.
This unique cabin setting has been a special place for friends, families and couples to recconnect and recharge. There is a magic to the Blue Mountains, and once you've experienced it—the enchantment, the beauty and the serenity—you'll fall in love.
Included in your stay are tea and coffee, towels and linens, toiletries, firewood and even a complimentary bottle of wine. But don't just stay indoors (though it's hard to leave), there is so much to discover in the surrounding areas.
Time is the most valuable commodity today—time with friends, loved ones and family. To ensure you make the most of your time in Leura and the beautiful Blue Mountains, we've tried to create the perfect setting for your escape, while you're away from home.
It's about the little things. A bottle of wine to arrive to, toiletries to pamper yourself, the luxury of having sheets, towels and linens provided, a warm fire to curl up to, and spaces to connect and also to be alone.
Less than 2kms from the restaurants, cafes, boutique stores and convenience of Leura Mall, everything you need is included, and everything else you want is close by.
We love nothing more than sharing a cheese platter on the deck as we listen to nature's orchestra, soothed by the slow trickle of the nearby stream.
What is the minimum stay?
We have a minimum two night stay, which is extended to three nights for weekends that include a public holiday, four nights for Easter and Christmas, and school holiday periods.
What is included in the daily rate?
Exclusive use of the property and all its amenities and features, such as the barbecue, toiletries (body wash, shampoo and conditioner), a complimentary bottle of wine, tea and coffee. We also provided bedding, pillows and towels, based on the booked number of guests.
How many guests are included in the daily rate?
Four guests are included in the daily rate, with an additional charge of $50 per guest per stay, up to a maximum of six guests.
Are pets allowed?
No. We understand you love your pet (we certainly love ours!), but in order to keep The Bothy welcoming to guests with allergies, we respectfully ask that you keep your pets at home.
Why is there a cleaning charge?
We want to ensure the property is always in the best condition for every guest, so we have a one time cleaning charge to help cover the costs of a professional cleaning service and the supply of fresh linens.
Do I need to bring a toothbrush?
Yes. And, we'd recommend that each of your guests bring one too!
Are you far from Leura Mall?
We are located less than 2 kilometres from Leura Mall, which is either a 5-minute drive or just under a 20-minute walk, depending on your fitness.
Are you far from Katoomba, The Three Sisters, Scenic World?
We are both close enough, and far enough away! It's a short 10-minute drive to these attractions, which can be very heavily populated with tourists. Yes, if you've never been, they are breathtakingly good, but our guests are often very thankful to be close enough that they are very convenient, yet far enough away to truly enjoy the serenity of our location.
Is the property suited to couples?
Yes, The Bothy can happily host two couples and two singles, as we have two separate living areas for privacy, two bedrooms with queen beds, and one bedroom with two singles.
Is the property suited to families?
Yes. While we'd urge any parent to be mindful of their child in the open grounds of the property, or when using the swing, climbing the stairs, playing board games, or on the deck, there are three bedrooms (one with two single beds) as well as two living areas, which makes it ideal for families to spread out and relax.
What's the easiest way to get to The Bothy?
It's a straightforward and pleasant 90-minute drive from Sydney (though we can never guarantee traffic conditions!). Most people come via the Great Western Highway, exiting onto Leura Mall.
Isn't Katoomba the best place to stay in the Blue Mountains?
Leura is just moments from Katoomba, and yet it feels like a world away! Home to a quaint strip of cafes, restaurants, boutique shops, wine bars, chocolatiers and bakeries that will steal your heart, and featuring some of the most breathtaking bush walks, wildlife and views in the Blue Mountains, we simply don't think Katoomba compares.
