Thankyou for providing us with this much needed respite.  Renae ,Timme and Chewy  xxx


We have all enjoyed our stay and have been very impressed by all the thoughtful and homely touches. The garden is lovely even in the rain and dogs especially loved exploring. Love the fireplace and foxtel.Thankyou Simon and Joanne Duncan


Thankyou so much for this absolutley stunning home. It has been so wonderful and relaxing for us and we all needed an escape from our busy lives. You have provided a wonderful sanctuary for us and we have so enjoyed our stay, we will certainly recommend it to all our friends.Your garden is so lovely and so beautiful to look at even in the rain.The wet weather has forced us to stay infoors mostly and your home has been such a wonderful and memorable haven that the weather did not even seem to matter. Thankyou again for all your kindness - The Wild Family                                                                                     


I recently spent a very enjoyable weekend at the Secret Garden Cottage with a friend and my two dogs. The cottage is beautifully decorated and equipped with absolutley everything you could possibly need. It is quiet and surrounded by beautiful gardens. Canine friends are catered for also, with beds, bowls and towels available (+ the garden is 100% fenced). There are heaters in every room + fireplace in the lounge -oodles of magazines and movies to watch also. Honestly, you could not ask for more! Will definitely return to this place again - Thankyou Fiona!   Lisa Stewart    (Birdies mum)


Thankyou for a lovely 2 nights stay we spent in your beautiful cottage. I loved the old world charm, the beautiful feeling as you enter. The way you decorated is great - I love green too! would definately recommend.  Karol and Mike Smith + Nigel and Louise Hutchence 


I have to say, the weekend spent at your beautiful cottage is the best weekend my husband and myself have had in forever! And I really mean that.

From the moment we arrived with the music softly playing (and I would love a copy of that CD) to our walk through your garden, to the comfort of the kitchen, to relaxing in the lounge with the open fire, to your comfortable bed…we are coming back. In fact, are you taking bookings for next year yet? What a lovely way to spend a weekend and our anniversary, and we even got to see the little bird on Sunday morning in the mirror window at the garage!

We even managed to take photos of ourselves together (which we thought particularly clever!) throughout the cottage and gardens.

I feel like I’ve had a week away and not just a weekend, now that’s relaxing.

It was our pleasure, and if you want any advertising done at all, I’m your man (woman!)

 Michelle Rogers -


My daughter and I had the most wonderful stay at your beautiful cottage- and just wanted to let you know and also THANKYOU!

You are certainly to be commended on the gorgeous restoration, numerous nick knacks and superb garden.
The attention to detail for our stay was simply perfect
It was such a homely feel from the moment we arrived with the soft music playing and the immaculately presented accommodation.
Not to mention out little Yorkie BJ loved the garden and adopted it immediately as his big maize and greatly appreciated his own treats that had been left.
We will definitely hope to come back as we wore many pairs of shoes out fossicking the old bric a brac shops, eating delicious morning and afternoon teas and searching for vintage clothes......but I am sure there was things we still missed to do.
Kind regards
Kerrie and Miranda - 


Loved exploring the beautiful garden with the added suprises and visits from our little feathered friends. loved the eclectic style - beautiful as well as useful and comfortable. P.S Boomer loved his little treatie as well as exploring the garden. Libby Davis 

Our weeknd getaway at Secret Garden Cottage couldn't have been better. It was lovely waking up to the birds chirping and having breakfast in the glorious garden that just kept going and going! We took our much loved poochies and they had an awesome time exploring the gardens. The cottage was prepared beautifully by our hosts Fiona and Michael; we felt very spoilt.
We had such a good time we have booked a date to return in the next few weeks! I hope you enjoy your stay at Secret Garden Cottage as much as we did. 

As soon as we opened the door we got that warm, welcoming feeling. The cottage is comfortable & clean . The garden is just gorgeous with lots of nooks & crannies to explore, & a great safe & secure environment for our dog. It's about a 10 minute walk to the main streets of Katoomba so there's no need to take the car & battle it out for a carpark, & it's far enough away to be in a quiet & peaceful setting. We loved it.  Bernadette - Melbourne VIC 


What a beautiful and inspiring place and how fortunate we are to have discovered the 'Secret Garden Cottage'
Three days here leave us refreshed and relaxed. There is love , harmony and delight in every aspect every detail and colour - inside and out. Thankyou for sharing and maintaining such a beautiful garden and home.
Fiona, Leigh, Wendy and Rosie - Tempe , NSW

As I sit here looking around at this lovely kitchen I dont want to leave, I suffer from a sleep disorder and our last 3 days I 've never slept so much in my life. My husband and I an our 2 pooches loved being here. We watched movies, cooked and sat the table and read our papers together ' Something we used to do 30 years ago' This is a very special place - you should be so proud of what you have created. We cant wait to come back.
Debbie and Chris Holden

Having stayed in many places around the world, this little 'Secret Garden Cottage' was up there with the best! We loved its warmth and cosy atmosphere and the beautiful garden - very relaxing and a place we will come back to again.

Derek and Ginny - Victoria

This is our third stay and was just as enjoyable as the past two. When we step through the front door it is like going back in time in this warm and inviting cottage. Thanks again for a wonderful weekend.
Cat Chrysta, Gary and Paris (the dog)

A summary of the notations in this journal tells it all - this home is a place where family and friends gather to recharge their batteries.
Being away from the township is a bonus, the tranquillity here is amazing. A real 'Garden of Eden'

We had some great meals at the local pubs and a refreshing beer or two.
We played monopoly and cards in the evening. Thankyou for allowing us to share this piece of history.
The Homers , Medowie NSW

A misty garden, a port by the log fire - the perfect Blue Mountain experience - thankyou for thinking of everything.
Janice and Denis - Port Macquarie

I hope its OK with you if we move in? We are returning to Sydney now to collect a few more clothes then head straight back for a cuppa by the pond, Enya by the fire, an endless meander through the magic of the garden, and then allow the rest of the world to take care of itself...
Thankyou for not only creating but so generously sharing this work of art and love - we'll be back.
Siobhan and Bailey
