The space
Comfortable, family-friendly, relaxed house that sleeps 10, perfect for 2 families. There are 4 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms (1 double with ensuite, 1 triple, 1 queen bedroom upstairs and a bedroom with 3 singles downstairs. The open-plan kitchen joins onto the spacious dining room, with a Nectre log burning stove. This area opens out through a pair of french doors to the outside deck. A cosy sitting room with log fire opens out through french doors to a beautiful courtyard. The house is surrounded by large gardens with a tennis court, cubby house & swing.

Guests have the house, 7 acre property, tennis court and gardens to themselves. Enjoy the beauty of the Shipley Plateau, Hargraves and Mount Blackheath lookouts just a short drive from the house. Or take a short walk to our private lookout over the Megalong Valley. The large established garden and beautifully sited tennis court offers space, peace & seclusion. It is in close proximity to Blackheath, the Megalong Valley and bush walks within the National Park. Megalong Valley's great walks and horse riding places are also just a short drive away. The best apples and juice from the Logan Brae orchard on Shipley Road. At the start of the road (3km) is Blackheath's restaurants, cafes and shops.

The owners can be contacted by mobile phone if you have any queries before or during your stay.

A car is really handy though a bus and train can take you to Katoomba. Nearest station to Little Pightle is Blackheath, about 3 km from the house.

Though we were very familiar with the Blue Mountains through bushwalking, we were attracted to the unique stunning scenery, peace and tranquility, all within 1 1/2 hrs drive from Sydney CBD on good motorways. We were lucky to find such a unique property with a house that was being lovingly restored from a simple single storey weatherboard to its unique configuration by a passionate French builder, we just keep the passion going!

Guest access
Guests have the house, 7 acre property, tennis court and gardens to themselves.
