About our home

Our beautiful heritage-listed home is one of the iconic properties in the Blue Mountains. Built by the Childe family in 1898, whose son, Vere Gordon Childe, is one of Australia' most influential citizens. It is situated on five acres of exotic gardens right on the escarpment at the head of the majestic Wentworth Falls, 30 seconds from the start of one of the finest World Heritage National Park bushwalking trails - the National Pass.
The 800sq metre house is fully restored with modern heating, bathrooms, polished floors, flat screen TVs, WIFI, etc. The three bedrooms have en-suites. When we are at home we run Whispering Pines as a luxury B&B so it is immaculate, with empty cupboards for your clothes, spotless bathrooms. The attached video will give you a great idea of the quality of the house, its wonderful location and the waterfall at our door.Whispering Pines is in Wentworth Falls, a lovely village in the heart of the Blue Mountains. The great attraction is the World Heriatge listed Blue Mountains National Park - over 1 million acres of walks, waterfalls and stunning views. The area is a paradise for walkers and there are trails to fit all levels of fitness. The National Pass is undoubtedly one of the finest walks in the world - and it starts at our front gate. This link will give you an idea of its outstanding features
Wentworth Falls is 1.5 hours drive from the heart of Sydney and approx 2 hrs by direct train.Bill and Maria have run a successful luxury B&B for twenty years and are now semi-retired. Bill is the President of the Blue Mountains Accommodation and Tourism Association. We have had several holidays in Europe and look forward to more - swapping with people with a similar standard of property. We would like to be in London for VE-Day 2015, then travel around the Uk for about three weeks. In London we would be happy with a central apartment or a property on a direct train line (within half hour). In North America we would ideally like accommodation on the East coast, amongst the the Autumn colours.
There is no pet-minding required. Non smokers only.
The dates we are after: September 2014 - North America; December 2014 - New York; May 2015 - United Kingdom.
