Resist the temptation to hibernate at home in your woollies this winter. Some of the best weekends away can be had when the temperature drops, and Angel Wing is probably the most divine place to do it.

Located deep in the Blue Mountains near Jenolan Caves, this lush and spacious home consists of four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a designer kitchen, two wood fireplaces and underfloor heating to escape from the frosty mountain air… but not the stunning landscape.

Perched high on a hill, you can enjoy the soothing view of the mountains in the distance as you cosy up in front of the open indoor fireplace, perhaps with a glass (bottle?) of red wine.

But if you want to brave the elements, there is also an outdoor fire-pit in the courtyard, where toasted marshmallows are a given.

If that’s not enough to tempt you, the secluded house – designed by award-winning architect Peter Stutchbury – comes with superior linen, plush towels and Aesop toiletries.

There is room for eight guests, but we think it feels just perfect for two.
