When Biggest Is Better When On Holidays In The Blue Mountains

There is a scarcity of large holiday houses in the Blue Mountains. Groups of holiday makers are arriving in droves from Sydney and other parts of the country. Yet there aren't enough holiday houses to cater for the demand.

There are a number of reasons why 10 to 20 people might want to share a holiday house for their next holiday.

One reason is that quite often there families want to be together. The grandparents often will have their 3 children with spouses and an average of 7 to 8 grandchildren. It makes sense the whole family will want to be together.

Another group is 20 to 25 friends wishing to celebrate a special occasion. At these celebratory events there is often a lot of alcohol and it makes sense to stay up till late and not have to drive.

There are a handful of holiday homes in the Blue Mountains, but not enough to satisfy the demand. An alternative is two cottages together, side by side. We may have to allocate 2 to 3 properties in the same street or nearby, in the event of a group of 30.

Also there are a couple of resorts which will provide half a dozen cottages that can be used by the same group. There is one negative aspect to this, as often these cabins or cottages are spread out in an acreage and there is always the possibility of a downpour.

In particular in the middle of winter in the Blue Mountains, the last thing a holidaymaker wants to do is venture out into the cold after several hours of drinking and relaxing in front of a cosy log fire.

There are currently a few holiday homes which can accommodate large groups. These are spread out from Blackheath to Wentworth Falls.

In Blackheath Ellentree House, Hillier House and the Avonmore Cottages can accommodate from 9 to 22 people. These range from budget to luxury with the rate varying considerably. The Blackheath Holiday Cabins are the most affordable and can sleep up to 50 peope.

In Leura Three Bridges is a very upmarket holiday home that can sleep up to 16 people. Also The Sublime Lodge near Everglades can sleep up to 18.

In Wentworth Falls, Blue Mountains Holiday House is excellent value and is situated across from the Wentworth Falls Country Club. On 5 acres it offers spectacular views.

The other option is the more expensive resort style accommodation such as Kanimbla View and The Wollemi Wilderness Cabins situated in 600 acres of National Park.

The reason there is a shortage of large holiday homes available is mostly to do with the current council rules and regulations which strictly regulate the number of people staying at each property.
