My sister and I stayed here for two nights and wished we'd had longer. We were in Buttercup Barn and were so happy with the accommodation. A lovely wood burner to keep us warm on a very wet night on arrival. Everything was spotlessly clean, comfortable beds and the whole idea of using recycled materials really appealed to us. Linda...

Once again we chose The Studio and once again we loved it! Cannot fault it. So warm and cosy and very quiet. Arrived to find music playing and heating on, which was lovely as it was so cold outside! We always sleep like babies as the bed is very comfortable too! Wish we could have stayed longer, maybe next time!...

Spent 3 nights here, in the studio , and absolutely loved it . Definitely our favourite place, and we stayed in seven places altogether during our five week travels. We were sad to leave ! After wonderful days out seeing all the amazing sights of the Blue Mountains and doing loads of walking it was heaven to come back to...

We stayed 2 nights here in Buttercup Barn. It really is a very unique and memorable experience. Linda was extremely helpful and gave good advice on the area and things to do as the weather was against us making the most of the mountains. Certainly would recommend a stay here and we would love to make a return visit on...

If you are looking for a distinctively unique Australian experience, the type of memory that you will be talking about for years to come - I recommend The Old Leura Dairy and a tour with Tim from Tread Lightly Eco Tours. The Old Leura Diary has a range of accommodation made of recycled materials - meticulous attention to detail for...

Thank you very much for taking the time to write such an informative and wonderful review! What a compliment to read that you would stay with us again (when normally this wouldn’t be a practice of yours). I am thrilled that you enjoyed your experience in our unique cottages, the magnificent surroundings of the Blue Mountains and your fantastic tour...

We left Sydney after 2 days and headed into the Blue mountains and stayed at the old Leura dairy for just one night as we bagan our drive accross to Adelaide. We had the pleasure of staying in the Buttercup barn. A warm welcome, delicious breakfast and great advice as where to visit - we were so glad of that!...

We stayed in the Milking Shed. We were welcomed by Linda, and given lots of great suggestions of what to do and where to go. And then we entered the Milking Shed itself, a pitcher of wild flowers, gentle classical music playing in the background... All well in tune with the rustic, recycled greening of the place. We'd been recommended...

We felt very welcome during our stay in the studio. A surprisingly lovely decorated place, where music welcomes you. A few little things that made it special. We also liked the hot tube outside, and even saw some possums in the tree. This was our best stay in our 4 week stay in Australia, absolutely loved it! And the surrounding,...

Thank you for your absolutely wonderful review!! To know you enjoyed your stay with us above all others is extremely special to us. The possums are loving Old Leura Dairy as their home. When we bought the property there was absolutely no wildlife at all living there so to see so many creatures setting up home at the dairy is...

Quite a different place where recycling and the use of old material play an important role. We stayed for two nights at the Buttercup Barn. Not very convenient. On one side you are supposed to use the gas grill and prepare your meals on the other you have to take care of the dishes using the bathroom sink. And be...

We are very disappointed to learn that you found your stay with us to be so uncomfortable. It is extremely unfortunate that you did not let us know of your discomfort while you were here so that we could have addressed your concerns immediately. It is impossible for us to help you after the fact. Due to local council regulations...

This is a property you stay in & will always remember. We stayed in Buttercup Barn, the neighbours being Moo Manor. The whole of Old Leura Dairy is unique.
