We found this stay to be excellent, the location, the cottage, the host.
A wonderful surprise was that the kitchen & fridge was stocked with some basics, cereal, milk, eggs, bread etc.

Little Pomander is well situated just a few minutes walk from the centre of the lovely town of Leura, which is a good place for exploring The Blue Mountains.
The cottage is spacious and comfortable with a very large, pretty garden. The bedrooms have quality fittings and furnishings. The owner is very pleasant and helpful and called round to ensure everything was OK for us - she also left a very nice breakfast basket for us.
A good value and comfortable place to stay in this area.
Our stay at Little Haven was only one night but it left a longing impression with us. Such a lovingly restored, clean & neat as a pin, little cottage using natural materials to create a sense of cosiness & relaxation. Lots of romantic touches with candles, big spa bath & big comfy bed. A generous array of much appreciated food & drink provisions. Beautiful outdoor seating area surrounded by pretty gardens with bbq..great for summer nights! Skylights indoors to let natural light in during the day & stargazing at nights! This little cottage was a great find & we will be sure to return in winter to put those two fireplaces to good use! Thank you Sandra for your warm welcome & for thinking of everything!
We stayed for two nights at "The Little Pomander". This was such an amazing property. We arrived late on the first night, to be greeted by warmth and music which really made it feel like home! It was so clean and neat; and the spa was in great condition! There was a beautiful array of food set aside for breakfast. The rooms were fantastic and the garden was outstanding. Sandra was great with communication, particularly in that we booked it the night before we arrived. She popped over in the afternoon briefly to ensure we were settled in and had everything we needed; and then quickly disappeared to leave us to it. It is really central to everything. We couldn't have asked for better accommodation, and the price was very reasonable (and were discounted as there were only two of us). We will definitely be back again! Thank you Sandra! An absolute pleasure!
The Little Pomander was a delight , cosy & the central heating was very nice ..
We had everything we needed. Central to Leura town centre & cafes , all in walking distance ..
It was very clean , plenty of towels for myself & 4 friends.
Beautiful gardens ....
After spending a few days experiencing the V8 racing of Bathurst for the first time, we decided to spend a couple of days exploring the Blue Mountains and to have some "down" time.
We chose perfectly in Hills Haven Retreat. It had everything we were wanting and more!
Firstly, Hills Haven (Iorana) is in a quiet location is on the edge of Leura. We could drive to all the main tourist sites of Leura & Katoomba within minutes.
A beautiful array of breakfast foods were supplied for us (eggs, cereal, fruit, coffee/tea, milk OJ etc.) - more than enough for both days.
After a day of exploring and walking, it was so lovely to come back to the cosiness of the cottage with wood-fire & spa, TV & DVD. The plush towels, spa supplies, bed-linen and everything were top-class. In fact, it was all so cosy & welcoming, we chose to eat-in on both evenings.
The back verandah & private cottage garden were also a perfect place to sit for the hard-earned beer/wine on return from a hike.
Sandra was the perfect host. She briefly popped in soon after our arrival to check all was fine and then left us to it, which is just how we like it.
It's also worth mentioning how spotlessly clean everything was.
Sandra takes a lot of pride & care in the presentation of her lovely cottage.
Would definitely stay here again if and when we next visit NSW & the Blue Mountains.
I wanted to arrange a special treat for one night in the Blue Mountains for my parents travelling in from overseas, & the cottage exceeded my expectations. Set in a sleepy area of Leura it was convenient to shops & a short drive to Katoomba. We opened the cottage door to classical music & some muted lights which was incredibly inviting & atmospheric! The cottage was spacious & cosy with its fire places. Sandra dropped by to check we had everything we needed & to advise on the operation of utilities etc. My parents were absolutely thrilled, particularly as they were also celebrating their 43yr wedding anniversary.
