Billy's cottage is more than 100 years old but is so loved that it has only had a handful of owners. It is the oldest cottage in this part of Katoomba and you can feel the history and see the changes that each family has made to it over its 120+ years. Nestled in it's bush setting, we hope you fall in love with this charming character filled cottage as much as we have.

The cottage has 2 large bedrooms, both with comfortable queen size beds fitted with quilted electric blankets for those colder nights. The main bedroom has a light filled sunroom off the side with a sofa that folds out into a double bed allowing for up to six people per stay. The 2 queen size beds will be freshly made for you and towels are provided. You will need to bring your own linen if you wish to use the fold-out sofa bed but there are plenty of spare blankets and pillows. The house is perfect for families, 2 couples or a small group of friends. Your small, house-trained dog is also welcome.

The living area features expansive views over the gardens and surrounding bushland. There is an abundance of DVDs, 100's of CD's, Pay TV, lots of books and board games so curl up to the cosy fire with a glass of wine and enjoy each other's company. The large balcony also has views out to the bushland and an outdoor heater so you can enjoy breakfast in the great outdoors, even in winter.

The gardens are magical all year round. Spring and Autumn are especially beautiful with the array of colours. Your kids will love exploring the various sheds littered with items from yesteryear. The bushland out the back provides a lovely contrast. Climb into the hammock and listen to the sounds of the Aussie bush while reading your book.

The kitchen is fully equipped but please note it has no oven. You will need to use the hooded BBQ for any roasting you want to do.

You will be amazed by the abundance of birds that make their home in the native bushland out the back. The Kookaburras are daily visitors and seem to have taken a special liking to this part of the bushland. Keep your eyes out for the wallabies that visit at the creek that runs by the bottom of the property. The beautiful Minni Ha Ha waterfall bushwalk starts at the bottom of the street. In the warmer months you can cool down underneath the waterfall - it's one of the best swimming holes in the Blue Mountains and I thoroughly recommend the walk takes about 45 mins from the front door.

The Blue Mountains National Park is at your doorstep. The Three Sisters, Scenic Railway and cosmopolitan delights of Leura and Katoomba towns are only 10 minutes away.

We hope you enjoy your stay

Please note that mobile coverage at the cottage cannot be guaranteed: Telstra has reception, but Optus and Vodafone are patchy at best

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely homely cottage We stayed two nights with our kitten and loved it. The house has a lot of character as a 100 year old cottage but very comfortable with a big couch and lots of great books and DVDs, a decent TV and sound system, and best of all no mobile reception so we could really switch off from the world. Our kitten loved exploring the beautiful garden and monitoring the neighbours chooks. It is a short walk to the gorgeous falls hike at the end of the road and a few minutes drive to the shops, but far enough from Katoomba town to feel away from it all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Homely and generous Abundantly supplied with wood, tea, kitchenware, dvds and cds. Very well located for a walk to Minni Ha Ha falls. Beautiful bucolic location; a short drive to Katoomba. A quaint and spacious cottage. Loved the deck and the birds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect in all its quaint qualities We enjoyed a cosy, beautiful 2 nights in Billy's cottage. The fireplace kept us all comfortably warm and was a catalyst to enjoy endless evening chats and cups of tea together. Tons of tea, music and books to chose from to add to an already great location. We were really impressed with how warm the house was with the fire, my mum was especially happy with that! Highly recommend this place :)
