Hat Hill Cottage a standalone eco cottage set amongst scribbly gums surrounded by the Blue Mountains National Park. The two bedroom cottage accommodates a small family or 2 couples.
It is a purpose built environmentally friendly mud-brick lodge with slow combustion fire with fantastic views across the National Park. The cottage is right by some of the most beautiful walks in the Blue Mountains – including Cliff Top Walk and Pulpit Rock. It is just a 5 minute drive to great cafes, gourmet restaurants, galleries and shops of Blackheath, 10 minutes to Leura & Katoomba, and within walking distance of the magnificent vistas of the Grose Valley.
The cottage is popular with couples looking for a quiet break, small groups needing a base for outdoor activities, girls pampering weekends and also families looking for a few days away from it all.
The cottage will undoubtedly impress with cathedral ceilings and a sense of being connected to the bush. Native scribbly gum woodland is all you’ll see from most windows. You’ll feel the seclusion and privacy from the moment you arrive at the property, ensuring the perfect relaxing break. You will keep cosy with gas heating, a real log fire and electric blankets. The cottage has two spacious bedrooms, open plan lounge/dining area, a full kitchen (including dishwasher) and is completely self-contained.

Andrew said ...the cottage was perfect. Thanks for an amazing weekend - it was so nice to be out in the bush and within walking distance to what we all thought were the best views around! Can't wait to come back.
Ashley commented ...we had a gorgeous stay over Easter this year with our 9 month old. Mud brick cottage was exactly what we hoped, perfect size and set up for a family or small group and in a beautiful secluded spot....
