Why Nicole chose Blackheath
We are experienced mountaineers and wanted a weekend cottage for staying up the mountains, and to share with our two gorgeous growing boys.
What makes this Cottage unique
This is the classic mountains cottage, small and cozy with huge lofted ceilings. We fell in love with it the moment we saw it, we are sure you will too.

Our stay at Dalpura cottage was beautiful.
The house presentation was aesthetically pleasing and it was very clean inside.
It was well equipped with all living needs and a very cozy home.
The gas heater was fantastic and the thick bed blankets were very warm.
Close to shops and tourist locations.
Our children enjoyed the fenced backyard and cinema room.
Thankyou for the stay!
Such a beautiful cottage
This is a beautiful cottage to stay in. My fiance and I had 5 nights here and I can honestly say it is one of the best places we have ever stayed. Everything works really well. We loved the heater in the bathroom and the cosy fire. The beds are extremely comfortable and it is so lovely and quiet at night. The information booklet that the owners had made themselves was our go to for everything! Don't even hesitate, just book this property you will not be disappointed!
We had a wonderful stay. The view you get from the loft bedroom is spectacular. Access to the school playground & walking trails was great. We hope to stay again soon.
Thanks Amanda, glad to hear you and the kids had a great time in our little cottage. Regards. Nicole.
Beautiful house in great location
This place was super clean, cosy and in a great location. The owners have included heaps of local information which was really handy and the awesome Porters Pass hike was virtually on the doorstep. Great communication with the owners. Would definitely recommend this property for others seeking a blue mountains getaway.
Thank you for your thoughtful review Jayne, so glad you enjoyed your stay,
Kind regards, Nicole
Great cottage for a small family
This cottage was perfect for our stay with 2 adults and 2 young kids. We're Canadians living in Brisbane who take a winter trip to the Blue Mountains every year, and this cottage's vaulted ceilings and loft certainly made it feel like a Canadian cabin. It was well appointed, and there are hiking tracks within walking distance, while Blackheath's other trails and lookouts are only a short drive away.
Thanks Tom. We hadn't thought of that, but yes, come to think of it it is like a Canadian cabin! We loved our trip to Canada. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Regards. Nicole
Perfect cosy cottage retreat
Dalpura Cottage is well equipped, comfortable, relaxing, cosy and in a great location. It made our weekend escape perfect and kept us warm on some rather cold wintry nights. The owner Nicole is very friendly, helpful and communicative. We hope to come back one day!
Thanks Fiona, would love to have you back. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Regards. Nicole
Blackheath is the highest village in the blue mountains, and can even get snow in the winter time.
It is a great base for adventure activities in the mountains whilst avoiding the mainstream tourist crowds at Katoomba.
We recommend canyoning in the summer time if you have a full day available and want to do something adventurous. Think of canyoning as an Indiana Jones style adventure in world heritage national park.
The Blue mountains has over 200 world class sandstone slot canyons, and many are suitable for beginners. There are several commercial companies that will take you out and keep you safe whilst giving you a great adventure you'll remember forever.
We recommend Twister/Rocky, Grand Canyon, Fortress, or Serendipity for beginners, or Claustral for the ultimate adventure experience!
You can walk the Grand Canyon at Blackheath, but to go deeper you'll need to abseil with a commercial group. There is even a small canyon (Grotto canyon) within walking distance of Dalpura which is a must see.
There is also climbing and abseiling through the same commercial companies.
Blackheath also has world class lookouts and walking tracks. And there is caving at Jenolan Caves only an hour away.
Whether it's winter or summer time, or somewhere in between, the Blue Mountains has an adventure for you, and Blackheath is a perfect location to base yourself from.
