Brantwood is a beautifully appointed cottage; the perfect setting for a relaxing time away with friends or family. We feel proud to say that Brantwood is the only 4.5 Star NRMA AAA Rated Cottage in the upper Blue Mountains. We are also very honoured to have been handpicked by the editors of Beautiful Accommodation, Australia's most discerning guide to unique places to stay, to be featured in the annual accommodation guide.
At Brantwood our guests are important. It is not solely our aim to attract new customers, but to ensure their stay meets expectations – and we are delighted to say that the returns have been regular. In preparing Brantwood for her guests, extra care is taken to ensure a constant, clean and comfortable mountains retreat is presented to our customers, one they will thoroughly enjoy. Listed here are just a few examples of the feedback we’ve received during the Brantwood years:
Thank you John and Tanya, for sharing your wonderful cottage with us in November this year. Booking was an absolute pleasure and as with your directions, everything was completely thought of upon our arrival. We felt the warmth you’ve so genuinely invested as soon as we walked through the door, everything from the grandfather clock and wooden floors with heating, to the wonderful kitchen and banquet dining table. Our little girls spent hours searching for secret treasures in the garden, and dad discovered the golf course a few paces away, almost immediately. As an international travel consultant for over 15 years, I can honestly say that Brantwood Cottage is one of the country’s best kept secrets. There was absolutely nothing we couldn’t find, from the olive oil we’d forgotten for our salad, to the most fantastic and abundant breakfast supplies. The interior was beautifully appointed with such comfy beds that none of us wanted to move in the mornings! Not even the weather could hold us back with the lovely porch and dining area out the front. Both mum and I felt that the magic we’d experienced was each of your visitor’s leaving a little of their hearts and smiles behind with pleasure. Congratulations to you both on a little slice of heaven and we look forward to visiting again soon. If you add any more properties to the portfolio, please let us know, you do it so well! Lots of warm thoughts, Kim, Dave (Gramps), Viv (Gran), Ash (little sister), Darren (her husband) and our three fairies from the 'secret garden' Georgie, Becky and Annie.

Thank you Tanya & John. It was such a beautiful place. The kids were happy just to hang around the house and do nothing else. It made for a relaxing weekend. We hope to visit again soon.

It was lovely, warm and cosy. A very well stocked and maintained home away from home. Thank you. Hope to be back sometime soon.
Katherine, July 2010
We had a wonderful stay in your delightful cottage and will definitely be recommending it to our friends. Not having to fuss and think about breakfast provisions, along with all the other touches, really made the stay even more enjoyable.

We had the most wonderful time at Brantwood Cottage - we will most certainly be back. What a beautiful house and the surroundings are divine. Plus, I had my yoga retreat at Kanimbla Eco retreat so the whole package was wonderful. We think a winter visit would be very special so will hope to see you again in a couple of months.

Just wanted to say a big thank you for allowing us to stay at your lovely Brantwood Cottage. It was absolutely gorgeous and we really enjoyed it! Oh those beds were comfy.

Thanks Tanya - we really enjoyed staying at the cottage - it was so much nicer than staying at a hotel. We definitely intend to stay again.
Catherine, October 2009
Just a quick note to say thank you for a lovely stay at your cottage last weekend. The cottage is beautifully kept and everything one could possibly want or need was available. It was very comfortable and made for a great stay.

We had a wonderful time in Australia. Thank you. Again, I have to reiterate - your cottage is lovely and very, very comfortable and welcoming. The children enjoyed it. My sister and I enjoyed it. Simply put, a good time was had by all!
Thank you for a cosy and comfortable stay at Blackheath. Brantwood Cottage is a delight, and fortunately the weather stayed mostly good for us. The parrots at the back were lovely to watch, and the falling leaves along the back street to the shops just so nice. My other two friends enjoyed the shopping in Leura, and we all liked seeing the Three Sisters on a beautiful afternoon. The walk that we did, a wander through the Victory Theatre, dinner at Ashcrofts, and the Devonshire tea in the Megalong Valley were fantastic. A stopoff at the Tomah Gardens on the way back to Sydey was well worthwhile. I hope to take T back there with me in the not too distant future. Thank you again.

We all really enjoyed our weekend in the Blue Mountains and just loved Brantwood Cottage. It was a beautiful place to stay and provided everything we needed (which is a big call for a family of eight!). On Saturday night we lit the fire and all sat together in the lounge room to watch one of the DVDs provided, which is something we rarely do at home as there are always things to get done and G works such long hours. It was precious time together and was made all the more pleasant because we were in such a beautiful, cosy and homey place. We would love to come back again and would recommend it to all our friends and family. The girls are already planning the next trip! Hopefully we can do it again soon. Thanks again for letting us stay in your gorgeous cottage. We think you're very lucky to be able to stay there whenever you like! P.S. The new mattress in the main bedroom was really comfortable. We all had a great night's sleep!

Thank you very much for letting us use Brantwood cottage, it was just lovely. Pity the 5 days, as we would have liked a day or two more (next time). The kids simply loved the place and we will definitely use it the next time we up in the mountains for a holiday and will recommend to our friends. The provisions you provided exceeded our expectations and we are very thankful for that. Once again, many thanks.
Michael, December 2009
With special thanks to our valued customers, our regulars, and all the recommendations. We hope you will keep Brantwood in your hearts and continue to consider Brantwood your home away from home.
