Waratah Cottage is an executive holiday cottage in the heart of Katoomba village, surrounded by cafes, restaurants, antique shops and art galleries, as well as being within easy walking distance of the World Heritage-listed Echo Point.
Featured as one of the top 4 places to stay in the Blue Mountains by Australian Country Style.
The property is luxuriously appointed with granite benchtops in the fully equipped kitchen, travertine marble flooring and a deep rectangular spa in the bathroom, a wood-burning fire for cosy winter evenings, beautiful furnishings, original artworks and crisp white linen and towels supplied.
The cottage is totally self-contained and compact, ideal for one to two couples or a small family, with a beautiful sun-drenched hardwood deck complete with built in BBQ for dining or simply star gazing.
This original miner's cottage, built in the late 1890's, has been lovingly restored and features special details such as heart-stamped convict bricks dating back to 1840 and wonderful dry stone walls bordering the superbly crafted exotic mountain garden, boasting cherries, camellias, cypress and maples.
Simply laze in the cottage on a winter's day by the fire, lie on the superbly crafted wraparound seat under the cherry tree on a spring or summer afternoon with a pillow, a cup of tea or glass of wine, enjoying one of the many magazines or books from the cottage library.
This cottage is so easy to inhabit you won't want to leave its welcoming, warm surrounds.
There are 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other a double. The queen room opens onto the verandah through French doors. Lie on the bed and let your thoughts drift up into the sky through the clear panels in the roof and the huge surrounding shade trees. This room has a black and white theme, toile de jouy fabrics and white linen, with hanging space for clothing and an electric blanket for cooler nights.
The double room, also with toile bedspreads themed in a soft pink and cream, is quiet and cosy. Enhanced by a beautifully restored storage cupboard, it has hanging space and an electric blanket for cool nights.
Both bedrooms feature quaint, recycled French doors with glass panelled uppers to allow the light in, covered for privacy with beautiful fabric curtains.
The cottage living room is central between the bedrooms and features the original 6" wide baltic pine floorboards, graced by a rich Persian rug. A huge 3-seater lounge and two cosy armchairs are provided for your comfort in front of the slow combustion wood fire, TV/DVD and DVD library. The front door leads out to the verandah which wraps around to the BBQ and outdoor eating area, bordered by cyprus pine hedging and glorious on a sunny day. Enjoy!
