Rydal Cottage is the perfect couples retreat and has recently been totally renovated and tastefully restored into a cosy country hideaway. The cottage is centrally located in the village on a large 2 acre block known as Cartwright Place

The historic township of Rydal

The historic township is set in a picturesque valley only a short distance from many of the fascinating towns in the area.
A sleepy little village where the local pub is the focal point for both locals and visitors and many a yarn is shared.


Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing couples getaway This is the perfect place for a couple to get away from the city life and chill out. The cottage is cosy and provided great kitchen amenities to cook up a meal and sit by the fire. The gardens are lovely and the remoteness gives you peace and privacy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect cosy hideaway I can't say enough good things about this lovely cottage. We went for the easter weekend which turned really cold and wet, but it didn't matter at all because the cottage has everything you need for a cosy stay. Underfloor heating in the bathroom, open log fireplace in the lounge (or gas heater if you're feeling lazy!), electric blankets etc. Every piece of furniture and utensil has been carefully and tastefully selected. Kitchen has everything you need to cook up a feast and a dishwasher. Bring DVDs, puzzles, games (although there are some there already), food, wine etc so you dont need to leave! The garden is huge and well kept and would have been lovely to sit out in had the weather been better. It is a perfect hideaway if you want to stay in and read, watch dvds etc. there isn't anything in walking distance. Nearest shops in lithgow i think were about a 25 minute drive. Blackheath is about a 50 minute drive with some great walks (Pulpit Rock 3 hrs return is a nice one) and lots of cafes and little shops to potter in. I would definitely stay here again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stay! Such a beautiful property - the cottage itself has everything you need and more. The bath is definitely a highlight, along with the beautiful garden. Rydal is a teeny tiny town - in fact we didn't see a single person while we were there! Also remember that any groceries need to be purchased from Lithgow which is about 50minutes away. Would absolutely return!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic destination We expected a lovely property but weren't quite expecting Rydal Cottage to be as nice as it is. It's not overstated but is elegantly furnished and detailed to offer a relaxing retreat. We particularly loved the gardens which were spacious and ample for our dog to explore and for us to relax with a coffee or wine. The kitchen is very well established with all that's required to make some fabulous meals. Our favourite is the bathroom - the bath is very indulgent. We would recommend Rydal Cottage to anyone who wants to relax and detach from the world - turn the phone off and relax! The best feature is that it feels very homely and not too high-end, which allowed us to relax even more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We booked for 2 nights and ended up extending it to 3 nights because we wanted more time to enjoy this beautiful property. The underfloor heating in the bathroom was a wonderful & welcome surprise on the chilly mornings we had. The fire was brilliant and set up before we arrived. The kitchen was very well set up with beautiful cutlery, dishes, platters etc which was great when we had friends back for drinks & nibblies. The owner Carol was very helpful with any enquiries we had. Our beautiful doggy loved the massive garden and we couldn't believe all the lovely little seating areas in all corners of the garden. The town & scenery are beautiful. Would definitely stay here again!
