Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.

Umtala House has been lovingly restored and transformed into a peaceful, character filled, luxurious home set amongst beautiful gardens.

Relax on the sunny deck with a book, enjoy a glass of wine by the fireplace or cook in the well equipped kitchen while kids play in the cubby house of my childhood dreams.

A 15 minute stroll to Leura mall and Everglades Gardens around the corner.

Where you’ll be

Leura, New South Wales, Australia

Lined with cherry blossom trees, Leura Village has a collection of interesting shops, bookstores, cafés and restaurants, many housed in Edwardian storefronts along Leura Mall. Step away from the main hub of Leura and you’ll find grand old homes and charming rustic cottages which continue the theme of a serene mountain village.

Leura is renowned for its English-style cool climate gardens which take centre stage at the Leura Garden Festival and Leura Village Fair every October. Year-round, you can explore the Everglades Garden – a manicured 1930s European Romantic-style garden that reflects the natural beauty of the Australian bush.

Cliff Drive and Sublime Point Road connect to walking trails that boast stunning views of the Jamieson Valley, Gordon Falls and Bridal Veil Falls. Alternatively, Leura Golf Course offers panoramic views of the Blue Mountains National Park. Or if you not afraid of a dirt road and some fabulous hiking head out Mt Hay Road to Fortress Ridge or Lockleys Pylon.
