Why choose The Tor?
A visit to the Southern Highlands is all about experiencing beautiful countryside, sitting around a cosy fireplace, driving throughworking farms, and if you are lucky, staying in an older style, traditional home. The Tor is an original, timber cottage, with lovely gardens and wrap around verandahs. It offers therefore a somewhatquintessential Southern Highlands experience!
How is the property laid out?
The house is all on one level. You enter via a small glass conservatory, into the dining area and kitchen - both in a classic, traditional style. The house then has an internal laundry, three bedrooms, a traditional lounge room and one shared bathroom. All three bedrooms open onto the wrap around verandah.
What about outdoors?
The Tor is set amongst lawns and extensive gardens - an ongoing project of love by the current owner. Guests will however mostly only use the lawn areas and the immediately adjacent gardens. For the more adventurous, there are plenty of nooks, hidden gardens and the like to see and explore...but please take care on the property, especially with young children.
Keeping warm or keeping cool?!
During the cooler months and winter, the house has a reverse cycle air conditioner in the living area, an open fire place in the lounge, column heaters throughout and electric blankets on the beds. In the warmer months, the house can be opened up to catch any available breeze, or the reverse cycle air conditioner can be used for cooling.
What about sheets, towels and other supplies?
High quality sheets and towels are provided at The Tor.
Toilet paper, kitchen soaps, guest soaps and some other supplies are also provided, but please be prepared to top up during your stay as needed. Regarding food, condiments and the like, please plan to bring everything you need. For safety and hygiene reasons, our houses generally do not supply food items.
Parking for cars, boats etc?
There is ample off street parking for 2 - 3 vehicles. Please park on the gravel, not the lawns, thanks.
Is my dog or cat also welcome to stay?
