Located just around the corner from The Grand Canyon Loop Walk and Walls Cave and close to Bridal Veil Falls, A Bower Above is a delightful spot for two.
Quiet and on the edge of town, this property with it’s main house and two private accommodations, is an acre and a quarter and was originally farmland and the produce store for Blackheath.
Away from the hustle and bustle, but only five minutes to town, it's a place to help you rest, explore and reconnect.

The space
Our house and the separate studio apartment are situated on an acre and a quarter. The property itself is bounded on two sides by The Blue Mountains National Park with a five and three acre properties either side. It is quiet and peaceful.
The French doors of A Bower Above open onto a large deck with a Weber BBQ and from every window you can enjoy treetop views and diverse birdlife.
We border the Blue Mountains National Park and it’s a short walk to the escarpment views along our back track.
A Bower Above is a sunlit, private studio, perfect for a couple’s escape or a single person wanting a quiet, nature filled retreat and you can relax in the deep, double spa after exploring The Blue Mountains sights or walking The Grand Canyon Track.
Architecturally designed with passive solar principles in mind and very well insulated, you'll enjoy sunrise to sunset warmth. A gas log, slow combustion style fire will keep you beautifully warm in the cool of the evenings or when it snows occasionally in the winter. Air conditioning will keep you cool in the summer and we have doubled our solar panels to accommodate it’s use.

There's also a well equipped kitchenette with polished, timber bench tops, a fridge, double bench top elements, stainless steel electric fry pan for baking, microwave and toaster and a good selection of quality saucepans and cookware. We stock pantry items so that you don't have to... Olive oil, vinegar, soy sauce, salt and pepper grinders etc, coffee, selection of teas, hot chocolate etc.

We border the Blue Mountains National Park so we care deeply about the environment and our guests enjoyment.
Our property is solar powered but grid connected (and carbon neutral), and has onsite water recycling so you don’t have to feel guilty about lying in the deep, warm double spa.
All water is recycled through an envirocycle system and is used to water our orchard.
For our own and your health we also use only non-toxic non allergenic products to clean - steam, alcohol, eucalyptus and fresh air (we'll ask you to open doors and windows upon check out.
We take the utmost care following a strict COVID sanitising, laundering and dishwashing regime.
And all natural products are provided in the bathroom and kitchen.

Where you’ll be

Blackheath, New South Wales, Australia

We are located three kms from Blackheath. It is a town with lots of character and a village feel. There are great cafes, excellent restaurants, nice galleries, a glass blowers studio, a jewellery gallery, an antiques emporium to browse. Lots of artists live here. It is also a famous rock climbing destination. Centenial Glen is where you can start but there are many climbs around the district. There is a lovely swimming pool in a beautiful park with free BBQs near by, when it is hot and a golf course just 250 metres away. It is only ten minutes drive (or a short train or bus ride) to the more touristy Katoomba with it's larger supermarkets, interesting Cultural Centre and Art Gallery. The Scenic Railway and Three Sisters are here. In the other direction the Jenolan Caves are one hour bus ride (they will pick you up and drop you off in Blackheath) or you can drive. Mt Vic Flicks is a short drive away. It is open Thursday-Sunday. It is an old fashioned cinema and a locals favourite. Sit back with a cup of tea in a real cup and a choc top and watch films from all over the world.

It is a one and a half to two hour drive from Sydney if driving or a two hour train trip from Sydney's Central station. See Cityrail for time tables and a trip planner. We can pick you up from the train station by pre arrangement or it is a $13-15 taxi ride.
