WESTHILL HOUSE, BLACKHEATH
Review by the Begg Family July 2016

Our family departed our stay at Westhill House, wanting more and vowing to return. We were greeted by Elizabeth and Philip, and given a quick tour of the house. You could feel the well deserved pride in their property, so generously opened to others to share. It was a cold winter day; the house was very warm and welcoming, as were the owners. The kitchen was well stocked, above expectation, and just in case we were there to celebrate Christmas in July, the house and garden were tastefully decorated to suit.
Each year our son and his young family visit from the US, and this is the second time we have stayed in a large house not too far from Sydney, so that the immediate family can share uninterrupted time together. We declared to look no further next year, as we found perfection. The squeals of delight as the five young grandchildren discovered delights in the garden were wonderful – so much space and so much to find!
The well stocked library was exceptional, as was the very interesting history of Westhill which made the property even more enjoyable.
We plan to return with the family again next year, and my husband and I before then with friends, who are keen gardeners and to do some bushwalking as well. All on the doorstep!
Sincerely,
Elizabeth Begg on behalf of our family.

“The most incredibly beautiful property! We had our dream wedding here!”

Philip and Elizabeth have created a magical, intricate variety of gardens surrounding the most beautifully decorated and majestic house. We had our wedding here in January, and everything about the property was perfect. There was ample space on the grounds for our guests, and various locations for all part of the wedding.

The interior of the house is so stunning and made for a beautiful family weekend before and after the wedding. Philip and Elizabeth the owners, as well as Carol the housekeeper are highly accessible, helpful and caring. We would recommend this place to anyone seeking a weekend getaway or even for a large event like ours. We hope to go back some day!

“Magnificent property”
Reviewed 30 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

This property is stunning! The house is so interesting, beautifully appointed, very well maintained and had everything we needed and more for a relaxing and enjoyable time with the family. The gardens are magnificent. The owners were great to deal with and were there to welcome us and help us settle in. We loved every minute of our time there and will definitely return.

“What a gem!”
Reviewed 28 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My husband and I went away with 3 other couples for a weekend. Westhill had everything that we needed for a perfect weekend. it is spacious and beautifully furnished. You can feel the sense of pride that the owners have for their property.
There is a vegetable garden which we were invited to use during our stay. Fresh lettuce and rhubarb was a real treat. Breakfast supplies were left for us as well as other treats.
An added bonus were the rhododendrons and wild flowers in bloom.
I would defintely recommend the property.

4 couples escaped from Sydney for the weekend to this glorious house. The grounds are a sensory delight, with colourful flowers, spacious gardens and lovely trees. The house itself is extremely comfortable and beautifully designed. The huge living areas are decorated with interesting artefacts and art works, comfortable couches, fireplaces and everything else to make for a fabulous get away. The owners thoughtfully left some lovely snacks, and plenty of eggs, sausages, bacon etc for a cooked breakfast. We felt so pampered that we are about to book again for next year. Highly recommended.

Liked best: Everything
Liked least: The mattresses were a little too soft for some occupants, and some of the beds were Doubles, not Queen. For a property of this quality, Queen beds are expected.
