About Michael Ditchburn
We spend 10 years living in Bondi and work in Sydney because The Blue Mountains were just a bit far to commute from every day. But we finally made to move to permanently live in the Blue Mountains. Since I grew up in countryside England I need the escape from the city. We saw Piccolo in 2010 and both Holly and I knew we needed to buy it to rest and relax from the pressure of city live. I'm sure there are many of you that feel the same and we hope you enjoy our little mountain getaway.
Michael Ditchburn purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Michael Ditchburn chose Leura
This was the second miner cottage we looked at, The first sold on the day we enquired. I have always worked in travel and knew a property like this would work well in the mountains. It was bought for love (I know you should never buy property for love) but we thought why not. And we couldn't afford to buy where we wanted to live in Sydney. Final 6 years late after visiting the mountains mouthly we took another jump and moved to Katoomba.
What makes this Cottage unique
It's was built in about 1905 and retains all its character with squeaky floorboards but we have added all the mod cons and given it character with mid-century furniture.

Cute and cosy cabin with gorgeous garden and views
We absolutely loved our 3 night stay at Piccolo cabin. I was pleased to find that it was even better than the photos, with great attention to detail, homey atmosphere, and situated in a lovely spot, which was quiet and green but conveniently located near Leura town.
Michael was so helpful in responding to all of our questions and concerns. He made the whole process easy.
Our 1 year old lagotto dog was in heaven, exploring the multilevel gated garden (complete with an outdoor doghouse!).
I would absolutely recommend this place as a great value option, and would happily stay there again.
Quaint cottage with everything you could possibly need. Comfortable, great location.
Very easy process and good comunication with owner.
Beautiful cottage nestled in scenic location stroll to leura shops & restaurants
The property had lots of character well equiped very comfortable enjoyed sitting on front verandah high up amongst the trees
Will definitely come back again
Piccolo is a quirky, cute miners cottage, very close to all the adventures that the Blue Mountains have to offer. It is fully self contained with everything we needed. I would like to mention that care is needed on the way up and down the stairs. The owner was very helpful and easy to deal with.
The steps are being fixed as I write this, 8 of the 26 new steps are installed.
I will update the photo once finished.
