About the cottage and garden

The cottage is set well away from the house and offers privacy and excellent views of the garden. There is ample off street parking.

Designed in 1946, Saskatoon is a fine example of Paul Sorensen's cool climate garden design, incorporating mature copper beech trees, oaks, maples and silver birch, as well as azaleas, rhododendrons, a woodland walk and a moss walk. The flowering cherry in the front garden is splendid. The garden is spectacular all year round and is absolutely magnificent in spring and autumn. It is tranquil, spacious and has abundant bird life.

-----

Paul Sorensen (1890 - 1983) was a landscape gardener born and trained in Denmark. He had experience working in gardens in Denmark, Germany, France and Switzerland, some of which were in large estates with extensive grounds. He arrived in Australia in 1915 and settled in the Blue Mountains in 1917.

Sorensen is recognised as an accomplished landscape gardener having either designed or influenced the design of many gardens in New South Wales. He was celebrated for his distinctive designs and his mastery of the use of the dry stone wall technique combined with a skill in managing dramatic changes of levels in gardens. He is reported as being extremely versatile with skills in design, propagation, planting and the building and maintenance of gardens of a wide range of size and style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely cosy and delightful! We have just enjoyed another lovely stay at Saskatoon Cottage. The location is very peaceful, private and quiet, the cottage has excellent heating for cold winter nights and the hosts are very helpful and friendly. It is a really nice 20-30 minute walk into Leura. The cottage is equipped with all the essentials and also has many lovely touches, such as a variety of teas, a wide selection of books etc. We would highly recommend this lovely cottage for a weekend stay or longer.
