My wife and I spent a wonderful night here. We were made to feel very welcome and it is a relaxing atmosphere that allowed us to enjoy our time spent at Strathburn Cottage. Our room was very comfortable and the ensuite matched our expectations. A very enjoyable stay and would recommend Strathburn to my friends.
My wife and I spent a lovely four evenings at Strathburn Cottage in the largest room on offer, the Bong Bong Suite. It is, as described, a very large room with a very high ceiling. Scrupulously clean, with a small kitchenette, including a sink and microwave oven, a small dining table, a large wardrobe and several sofas of different styles and sizes and king size bed, actually two singles joined in the middle (personally I prefer a queen size as I always get lost in a king size) and a good quality flat screen TV. We felt very comfortable and at home. The only downside was the small bathroom, adequate, but not enough space for two to occupy at the same time. That said, the quality of the accessories such as soap, shampoo etc. was second to none. Lenia has spent a lot of time sourcing great products with which to pamper their guests. The four breakfasts we had in the large common dining/loungeroom, that contained a fireplace required even in December with the unseasonable weather we've been having, included a range of excellent boutique cereals, fruit and breads, which varied each day, superb orange juice and a savoury element which also varied. One morning Lenia rustled up some great scrambled eggs, freshly laid by their chooks, even though cooked breakfasts are no longer generally provided. They also serve cheese and crackers in the late afternoons. However, after the second day we asked for no more as we feared we'd be putting on too much weight but that didn't stop us snacking on what was left over the next two days!! However, the highlight for us was the lovely interactions we had with the family. We had an impromptu guitar session with Tony and their eldest daughter. I had just bought a guitar from the local music shop and, as a guitar teacher, was keen to see how Tony was going with his practise. On the final morning the kids and Tony joined us after breakfast for a chat and a game of 'rhyming slang' which was a lot of fun. Lenia was a most gracious and convivial hostess. Nothing was too difficult for her. She even went out and procured some of my favourite tea! I really like it strong (although, and don't tell her I said this, she makes it far too weak but Tony got it right on the final morning ... he's English you see ;-)). Lenia tried to get me some unrefined wheat bran when I asked if they had some. But alas, there was none in town. Full marks to her for customer service!! Strathburn Cottage is a great place to stay when visiting Bowral. Lenia and Tony are lovely people and their children are delightful. We look forward to visiting them again. Thanks for sharing your home with us. :-)

Australia is known as 'the land Down Under' for its position in the southern hemisphere. The discovery of Australia began when European explorers searched for land under the continent of Asia. Before Australia was discovered, it was known as Terra Australis Incognita the unknown southern land.
