Enjoy your wine?

Our good friends at The Carrington Hotel put on some great events!

One of our favourites is the "Wines Of The West"!


No need to drive for hours to a vineyard!


Have the wineries bring their hand selected wines for you to taste, just 1 hour from Parramatta !!

Make a weekend of it !!   Tastings Sat/Sun plus have a special dinner at the Carrington on Friday night with a winemaker at your table.

No.14 Lovel St is only 15 minutes walk from the Carrington.



No.14 is both a private full house rental and a unique guesthouse experience for individual bookings for adults.

For years, people have fallen in love with this cosy retreat and now No.14 has an exciting new idea for 2024 offering "Out Of The Blue" Experiences.

Who better to help you find the hidden gems of the Blue Mountains,

than the author of the book

"Out Of The Blue"???



We are exclusively reserving bookings at No.14 for the dates 16-18 August for attendees to this event!!

So in the evenings, you can share this unique experience and sit around our fire in the cosy lounge to compare notes.

  • You have the flexibility to book as many rooms as you need to accommodate, while still sharing the space with others. This not only creates a sense of community, but also makes it more affordable compared to booking the entire house exclusively.

  • Spaces for events like "Wines Of the West" are limited, so don't wait too long to secure your spot! If you prefer a more private experience, check if you can still book the entire 11-room house exclusively for your own group CLICK HERE FOR AVAILABILITY

  • Conveniently located near Katoomba town centre, No.14 is a charming 110-year-old guesthouse that can accommodate up to 20 to 28 people. With shared facilities, including a fully equipped kitchen, you can enjoy comfortable and budget-friendly accommodation without sacrificing charm.
