The house was in a superb location and had everything we needed. We loved the character and space though we spent most of the time when 'at home' in the kitchen or on a verandah. Unlike a lot of rental kitchens, I loved this one and cooked every night. Provisions left for us plus flowers in every room was such a welcoming touch and the communication with the host was excellent. The beds were very comfortable and the pillows as good as mine at home. The electric blankets were a wonderful extra as our first couple of nights were quite chilly.
I'd love to stay again one day.
This character filled cottage harks back to another era. Spacious, warm and inviting; Holmcroft is set in a lovely rambling garden. Features like the stained glass windows and pressed metal walls are stunning and nicely balanced with mod cons such as central heating and a dishwasher. Sitting on the verandah with a cup of tea was a joy and the owner of this home was a delight to communicate with. Holmcroft is in strolling distance to Leura and we will certainly be back again one day.
Loved our stay at Holmcroft , such a beautiful home, full of history and character and wonderful to see the retention of historical detail in the decorative pressed metal walls, the federation windows, the beautiful floors and a garden full of camellias and daffodils, just gorgeous. Bedrooms were so comfortable and the two bathrooms worked well for five of us on a girls getaway to the mountains. A couple of blocks from Leura village and its great cafes, restaurants,shops and railway station on a very good and easy path meandering past other beautiful homes and gardens. Central heating is great, there is ample space in the well appointed kitchen and comfort in the two large living/dining rooms with a table and chairs placed within the lovely curved window looking out onto the garden which became a favourite spot for breakfast. Can highly recommend this house as a great place to stay when in Leura, and am sure you will love it as we did !
I adore this house- full disclosure, my parents used to live there years ago! I couldn't believe it when I saw this place was available to rent! It still has all the old-world charm and character, together with all mod cons and immaculate presentation to make it a perfect place for a relaxing getaway, or in my case a nostalgic family get-together.
Central heating has been added since my parents were there, taking the house to next level. The rambling garden is still exquisite and the short stroll to Leura village makes this place ideal. We will be back!
