By Parklands Country Gardens & Lodges
The new Parklands Country Gardens & Lodges luxury accommodation property at Blackheath has further cemented the Blue Mountains’ reputation as the nation’s premier holiday location.
Situated within a spectacular 28 acre heritage property adjoining the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, Parklands opened its sweeping gates to leisure, conference and wedding guests on September 15.
The secluded retreat is part of the Escarpment Group, which also owns Lilianfels Blue Mountains Resort & Spa including Darley’s Restaurant, Echoes Boutique Hotel & Restaurant at Katoomba and the iconic Hydro Majestic Hotel at Medlow Bath.
Blue Mountains Lithgow & Oberon Tourism chairman Daniel Myles welcomed Parklands: “The Blue Mountains has been synonymous with romance, quality and luxury getaways for more than a hundred years.
“The Escarpment Group continues to set a high benchmark for elegance and excellence. Parklands is no exception.’’
Parklands Country Gardens & Lodges sits among beautifully manicured grounds overlooking lush green gardens lined with old pines, cypresses and Japanese maples planted more than 100 years ago.
Reminiscent of a grand European estate, it is set in an inspirational location near the magnificent Govett’s Leap Lookout and minutes from the quaint mountains village of Blackheath.
The elegant New Hamptons feel of light-filled rooms, Elk-horn chandeliers and striped wing-backed lounges comes after an extensive refurbishment project that has seen the seven garden cottages and main guest house transformed.
Also ideal for conferences, Parklands is perfect for weddings and boasts the Karawerra function room seating up to 60, Lakeview Restaurant and numerous ceremony and photography locations indoors and out including a private lake with jetty.
The day spa overlooking the gardens caters for individuals and couples and is stocked with the Parklands Kerstin Florian range of treatment products and chef’s kitchen gardens.
Parklands will continue to evolve, with phase two to include unique team building experiences such as Segways, laser tag, bushwalking, cooking and demonstration classes, while music and regional food and wine tasting can be arranged to suit.
