The Tor is an older style, classic Southern Highlands cottage. It is set on 25 peaceful acres, surrounded by seasonal gardens with many secret pockets! The house has been decorated in a period style, and is full of character, comfort and style - true to the photos.

Where will I be?
The Tor is located on the Southern Side of Burrawang, in a very pretty rural community - dominated by working potato farms and private weekenders. The property is very well located vis a vis two famous waterfalls in the area: Belmore Falls and Fitzroy Falls. Burrawang and Robertson are also very close by. Burrawang has a lovely country pub, great cafes, a traditional butcher, gentrified general store and the famous Easter Saturday markets!
Indicative distances are:2.5 km to Burrawang General Store, 8km to Robertson, 9 km to Fitzroy Falls, 17km to Moss Vale, 20 km to Bowral, 25 km to Kangaroo Valley, 125 km to Sydney.
Why choose The Tor?
A visit to the Southern Highlands is all about experiencing beautiful countryside, sitting around a cosy fireplace, driving through working 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 somewhat quintessential 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.
WIFI, internet, Netflix or pay tv- will I have it?
The Tor has Foxtel and a DVD player. Re wifi,The Tor provides complimentary WiFi and a password will be provided in your pre-arrival email, or will be available at the property. Please note however that we cannot guarantee 100% that the Wi-Fi will work, and no compensation will be payable if problematic. If important, please therefore always have a backup plan.
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.

Couldn’t have been happier with our stay at the Tor. Beautifully decorated, warm, cosy cottage with so many thoughtful touches and comforts. Amazing garden! Perfect to spend time with friends, read by the fire and exploring the spectacular bushwalks down the road at Belmore Falls.
Lovely cosy CottageJenny SHAW - 16th April 2023
The house is beautifully decorated warm and cosy. We enjoyed sitting around the open fire. As a keen cook the kitchen was well stocked and made entertaining easy. The weather was excellent and we enjoyed outside in the charming garden. It is rural property but close to the charming village of Burrawang. We will come again.

They house and gardens were very beautiful and felt homely. We just felt the door handles and access through doors needed work. Would love to see what the garden walkways would look like if maintained a little more.
