Welcome to our gorgeous 1930's cottage! The Artist's Cottage has two cosy bedrooms, a fireplace, balcony, a sprawling garden backing on to the national park and an artist studio (set up for you to use with paints and canvases).

The space
We have a well-equipped kitchen with a huge country stove, a lovely sunroom (perfect for lazy afternoons reading in the warmth), a deep 1930's bath and we have over 200 books, games and magazines for you to read!

Our cottage was built in the 1930s, with original fittings mixed with contemporary interiors. It's perfect for both summer and winter stays as the slow combustion fire and ducted heating keeps the whole house at a balmy temperature in winter, while in the summer the many outdoor and indoor areas offer shade and gorgeous views.

Both bedrooms have large walk-in wardrobes with hanging and shelf space, while the tiled bathroom has a deep 1930's bath, rainwater shower head and a view of the garden.

A three-seater emerald velvet couch takes centerstage in our lounge room, and a large refurbished country table seats six for dinner. Our flatscreen TV has full access to Netflix and Stan, and we offer unlimited WiFi.

The kitchen, though small, is well-designed. Preparing meals is easy thanks to large country-style gas oven, which can easily fit two roast chickens in it! The two-draw dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine and fridge are all new, and tea, coffee and cooking staples are all provided (along with unlimited wood for our fireplace).

The artist studio is the perfect place to try your hand at a little painting, sketching or just relaxing in our cane lounge. Canvases, paper, paint and pencils are all provided.

The garden features wonderful examples of both native and exotic plants: the front garden enclosed by photinia hedges is a classic Blue Mountains planting with new and old rhododendrons (some reaching up to 15 metres high!), azaleas, daphnes, camellias, hydrangeas and almost 30 Japanese maples. Under the maples in spring is a jonquil lawn and in autumn the changing colours of the maples are stunning.

The back garden cascades gently down the hillside in a series of carefully planted terraces. Just below the back deck are some kitchen plantings of citrus and herbs (help yourself!). Further down, a paved terrace is ringed by lavender bushes, overlooking a terrace of six olive trees. Below that is a grassed area featuring banksias and waratahs and a barbecue . A tree-fern gully leads down into a further native garden that ends in tall stands of mountain blue gums.

Our garden offers a wide array of nooks and special hideaways for a cup of tea, or wine, and homemade lunch or for reading/ sketching. There are many places to sit and catch the sun or avoid it depending on the season.
