Why Mrs Victoria Davey chose Blackheath
"Cottawalla" is the original name given to this early 1900's weatherboard cottage which I fell in love with & have lovingly redecorated & styled. It definitely has a vintage vibe with a nod to yesteryear but also a relaxed contemporary feel with all the modern conveniences for a comfortable stay. I am a keen gardener & the backyard has seasonal fruit trees, herbs, vegetables, cottage plants & flowers for your enjoyment & use. Cottawalla is so close to the lovely village of Blackheath that you can stroll down to local cafes, restaurants, historic pubs, antique shops, bookshops & art galleries in a matter of minutes. Take a wander around the tree lined streets or a 5 minute drive to some of the most spectacular views & bush walks the Blue Mountains has to offer. The famous Three Sisters & Echo Point is a 20 minute drive away & Jenolan caves is an easy day trip. The monthly Blackheath growers markets are also a great place to get fresh local produce & soak up the relaxed village atmosphere. It is an easy ten minute walk from Blackheath railway station. It's the perfect location for a getaway which is another reason why I chose this property.

A beautiful house in a great location walking distance to Blackheath shops and some very good restaurants. The house is very well maintained with all kitchen needs and some lovely extra breakfast needs provided. The heating was very effective on the cold days we were there. We would happily recommend this house and come back again. Thanks Victoria for a very quick response when I had a question.
Thanks Aliza for the lovely review, hope to see you back at Cottawalla again in the future.

Lovely old house restored. All the mod cons. The owner has done a beautiful job styling the house. Great location, near cafes, restaurants and not too far from Katoomba! Lovely getaway!
