Nestled at the base of Mount Blackheath, Potters Cottage is surrounded by magnificent Blue Mountains escarpments, peaceful forest and open native grassland.
With kangaroos, echidnas, goannas, wombats and myriads of birds at your doorsteps, and a frog chorus at dusk, this is truly a nature lovers paradise.
Designed and built by well known Australian Potter John Robertson using natural materials and recycled timber, the cottage is completely off the grid, solar powered, with natural spring water on tap.
There are two bedrooms, each has a queen bed, open plan kitchen, one bathroom, a separate dining room and a lounge room with a cosy wood fireplace.
Eco friendly materials are used wherever possible: pure stonewashed linen bedding; Australian made wool quilts, mohair throws and duck down pillows; quality cotton towels, hot water bottles and hand knotted woolen Persian rugs are all provided for your comfort.
This is TV and Wi-Fi free retreat. 3G/4G mobile receptions are available however we encourage our guests to switch off their mobile devises and instead take a walk around the astonishingly beautiful Kanimbla Valley. Bring your bicycles and go for a ride, try yoga during pink sunsets, meditate under ancient gum trees, go for a horse ride, roll in the mud at the dam : red clay is highly therapeutic - it cleanses, exfoliates, detoxifies and improves blood circulation
Or just lay back on the veranda with that book that you always wanted to read but never had time, and submerge into songs of Australian birds with butterflies gliding by.
There is so much to see and experience, just let your inner child come alive to play and enjoy nature’s simple offerings.
The cottage is not suitable for small children as it is located near a very deep dam.
Smoking outside only.
The base price is for 2 people using one bedroom. If you require the use of a second bedroom then additional charges apply.
