Guests to our beautiful Blue Mountains self contained accommodation at Glen Isla always remark on our half acre of private gardens. We love our beautiful cottage garden with many of our plants estimated to be at least 70 years old. Our wonderful gardener Will helps to keep it in tip top shape. He absolutely loves working on the garden and keeping it beautiful for our guests to Glen Isla. Some of our plants are very old indeed and he often points out something new he has found in the garden. At the moment, our blooms are starting to come out. Our recent guests will no doubt have smelt the beautiful Daphne plant which smells so beautiful near our side entrance.
Last week Will and some friends of his climbed some of our large trees on the property to trim some dead branches and let in some more light. Here are some shots of them hard at work!
We’ve received some truly lovely reviews from our recent guests to the house. It is such a pleasure to hear that people have enjoyed staying at Glen Isla. Here are just a couple of our reviews from this month:
“We had an amazing stay at Glen Isla. The property is exquisite and had everything that 3 families needed to keep us comfortable and well entertained. Kitchen has every appliance imaginable and the gardens are beautiful. The owners were only ever a phone call away. We would definitely stay again.”

“Our group of friends stayed at Glen Isla to celebrate Christmas in July. We totally loved our stay. The house itself is beautiful and is really well equipped like a home away from home. My girl friends loved the Kitchenaid mixer and the full sized oven. We baked yummy things and sat by the fireplace in the evening enjoying a game of Trivial Pursuit. The beds are very comfortable and we were all kept toasty with the electric blankets. Glen Isla was fantastic and we highly recommend it.”
