The Heritage-listed Silvermere Guesthouse is tucked away in the quiet streets of Wentworth Falls amid bountiful gardens. Ninety minutes' drive from Sydney, the property's exterior is reminiscent of a Tuscan villa. The views from the terrace stretch across the Blue Mountains, with bonus glimpses of the glowing Sydney skyline in the evening.
Built in 1923, the interiors of this guesthouse have been styled with charm; with antique furniture and hand-made quilts covering the beds, it could be the mountain retreat for the residents of Downton Abbey. There are four bedrooms in the west wing, each offering bed-and-breakfast packages. Suites have a private bathroom, a queen- or king-sized bed, and either garden or mountain views.
