Catherine Hill Bay, fondly referred to as Catho by the locals, is only one hour from Hornsby, Sydney and half an hour from Newcastle. As an old coal mining town suppling the coal to Sydney in the old days it has about 100 original miners cottages; many of them in almost original state.

Located in “Middle Camp”, Flowers Cottage has been lovingly restored. It can accommodate up to 6 people including children over 6 years of age but sorry no pets. The original miner’s cottage built in 1908 houses 3 bedrooms one with king-size bed, one with queen-size and one with double bed and a sitting room, and is linked to generous new living room and kitchen/dining area. The cottage, which retains the original floorboards and many other heritage features, has recently been up-dated architect-designed to ensure that you thoroughly enjoy your stay. The new kitchen, dining and living room has just been added as well as a second bathroom. A slow-combustion stove keeps the living areas cosy in winter and all bedrooms have pedestal fans and heaters for winter. Two large decks one covered for all-year use provide some beautiful outdoor space and a barbeque area.

The ocean beach is a short stroll away and Lake Macquarie is a couple of minutes by car. There’s good fishing at both the ocean beach and lake as well as the famous swimming, surfing and boating opportunities. The surrounding bush provides some interesting walks and if you are lucky you can still find some relics of the old mining town or railway.

Linen, bath towels, quilts, pillows, and electric blankets in winter are all provided. A deposit bond of $300.00 is required at least 4 weeks prior to arrival. This will be refunded in full within 2 days of departure if no excessive cleaning is required, if there are no additional unauthorized guests or pets, and if the property is left in a tidy state with no damages or loss of property found on departure.

Call Deborah for more information and availability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful place to stay Beautiful house, well equipped I got married at Catherine Hill Bay on the Easter weekend and this was the perfect place for my husband and i to stay as well as 3 of our dearest friends from interstate The only thing i would complain about is that our stay wasn't long enough

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great place to stay Our family of six had a great time staying in Flowers Cottage. The house is very attractive and comfortable. The kitchen and bathrooms are modern and clean. The bedrooms and living areas are a good size and very cosy. We enjoyed the short stroll to the beach, reading, playing board games and watching DVDs. A lovely week away!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic place to stay with kids! We just stayed at Flowers Cottage for 3 nights and had the most wonderful time. The house is really tastefully decorated and feels like home as soon as you walk in the door. The layout was great too, big open plan living room (with surround sound TV) and kitchen leading out to a big deck then down some stairs to a wonderful garden. We spent our evenings sitting on the deck drinking wine and watching the kids play in the garden and it was very safe too. And there is a field and path (to beach) behind the garden which is great for late afternoon walks. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flowers cottage is the most ideal beach house. It is a sympathetic renovation of the original cottage with stunning modern living areas. Nothing has been forgotten and three generations of our family had the most wonderful relaxing holiday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flowers cottage is one of the most idyllic locations in NSW. It's quiet secluded location makes you feel like you're miles from anywhere yet it's only 15mins to Swansea. We loved it and will be going back again.
