Fully self/contained and very private..

Cat On The Hat is a great place to get away and relax surrounded by the peace & ambiance that the beautiful village of Blackheath has to offer.

A short stroll from the village centre where you can enjoy a drink and meal at one of the two pubs without the worry of driving or parking. There is a live Jazz performance every second weekend at the Ivanhoe Hotel...

The town also plays host to an exceptional growers market which takes place once a month, live music , incredible fresh foods to purchase from the many stalls that include tastings and beautiful fresh food to take back to the studio and prepare a lovely meal on your Weber gas bbq

There is also two resident pussy cats that live at the adjoining property, , Tia and Coco,

Being cats they like to pop in and say "hello", if you are not into cats, then they won't mind being shooed away.

At Cat On The Hat you are less than a 5 minute drive to the popular lookouts such as "Govetts Leap", the Hat Hill Road lookouts, such as Pulpit Rock and others.

If bush walking isn't your thing the local village has a large variety of restaurants & cafes to dine at or just grab a coffee.

Gas, electric heating and electric blanket is available at Cat on the hat to beat our chilly weather.

Comfortable lounge room, TV with Netflix, docking station for playing your music etc.

The bedroom boasts a luxury king size bed with a chiropractic mattress , and of course a electric blanket for those chilly nights.

The bathroom is well appointed walk in shower , hairdryer and a selection of products.


There is a kitchenette with microwave, fridge, dishwasher

Plates, cups, Kettle and toaster and large electric frying pan.

You can either eat in the dining room off the kitchenette or open the two glass doors and walk straight out onto the rear covered sunny deck which has a webber gas bbq.

The deck is just perfect for morning coffees, afternoon champagnes and meals at any time of day.


*Ample on and off street parking




A $50 cleaning fee will be added if cottage is left messy and untidy

It was a lovely comfy little space with the perfect atmosphere.

Overall it was such a wonderful stay, the kitty was so friendly and lovely and the place itself was fantastic. The only thing I noticed was the lack of an oven but because we were only there for a few days it was not an issue. Thankyou so much for the awesome stay!

Owner's Response: Hi Natasha, Thank you for the lovely review. So glad you both enjoyed your stay at "the cat" Although there isn't an oven there are enough items available to still cook a meal if it is required , microwave, electric frying pan , sandwich hot press , and of course the amazing weber bbq on the back deck. Cheers Sharlene

A wonderful fe days away!

I had a lovely time here - the place was perfect and the owner was so friendly and helpful - she even made me a birthday cake!

And a bonus for a mad cat lover missing her own moggies was the cats (which only come to visit if invited, for those non-cat lovers (poor things)).

I did find the road traffic a bit noisy as I'm not used to it - but then I'm lucky to live in rural peace on 120 acres miles from the nearest public road! For anyone used to city life it would no doubt be considered very quiet!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review ...I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at "cat on the hat " The street noise is a bit more at the moment due to some construction at the end of the road....nights are a lot quieter Thankfully it is only local traffic and not highway noise Cheers Sharlene

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, miss it already. Property is well equipped with everything you could possibly need. We got visits from Pepsi and Tia some of the mornings which is great for cat lovers. Will come back again if we come to NSW blue mountains again

Nice and cosy!!

  • 5 of 5

Had an awesome 2 night stay at this accomodation. Very well equipped kitchen with everything you need for all your cooking. The gas heater is amazing and takes very little time to warm up the whole place :)) . Loved the covered little area outside the back, you can tell the owner is really thoughtful of privacy. cats are adorable, especially Tia :) would definately come back next time we're in the mountains.
