Next month, we will be celebrating a whole year since we purchased Glen Isla and started offering self contained accommodation in the Blue Mountains. We have been overwhelmed by the support our wonderful guests have given us over the past year and would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank everyone who has chosen Glen Isla for their Blue Mountains accommodation. We have recently taken bookings from several of our happy guests who loved staying at Glen Isla so much last year, that they have chosen to stay with us again.
We are constantly striving to make Glen Isla one of the best properties for self contained accommodation in the Blue Mountains. In light of some of the feedback from our guests last year during winter, we have installed a new ducted air conditioning and heating system through the main part of the house. This in addition to the wood fire will help keep the house a little bit cozier during the popular Winter in July.
Speaking of Christmas in July in the Blue Mountains, almost all of our weekend dates over the winter months are almost entirely booked out. If you’re currently considering booking Glen Isla for your self contained accommodation in the Blue Mountains over this popular time of year, we encourage you to book very soon to avoid missing out. If you’re flexible with your dates, you may also like to consider staying mid-week to avoid the popular weekends.
Thanks again for all your support. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you’re looking to book Glen Isla for your self contained accommodation in the Blue Mountains
Christmas in July Yulefest in the Blue Mountains is a very popular activity every June to August. It is one of the busiest times to visit the Blue Mountains but as most Australians don’t get to experience European-style winter Christmas in December. Celebrating Christmas in July in the Winter period is a beautiful way to experience the Blue Mountains. Warming up next to our cozy log fire is a great way to relax with family and friends. There’s lots to do here in the Blue Mountains for Yulefest!
Here are our tips on some of the top things to do in the Blue Mountains for Yulefest:
- Cook a turkey in our fully equipped kitchen. Dine with 10 of your closest friends and family at our large dining table, then curl up on our cozy lounges next to the log fireplace for a night cap.
- Have a laugh at The Goon Show in Katoomba
- Join the locals in June for the annual Blue Mountains Winter Magic Festival. Each year on the Saturday closest to Winter Solstice, Katoomba comes alive with a vibrant parade of jugglers, gymnasts, musicians, dancers, choirs, troubadours, buskers, storytellers and poets. There are also markets and unique Blue Mountains experiences, including a Christmas feast aboard the puffing Zig Zag Railway. This year the Winter Magic festival will be held on the 22nd June 2013.
With the tinsel and turkey, crisp days and storybook scenery, it’s easy to see why in the Blue Mountains, Christmas comes early.
