Although the Blue Mountains are vast and green, with valleys stretching as far as the eye can see, you needn’t stray far from your accommodation for great coffee and to discover a treasure or two to take home.

Regardless of whether you are staying in one of our cottages in Wentworth Falls, Leura or Katoomba, a short drive takes you to the lovely mountain village of Blackheath. Nestled between cliffs and the highway, it’s hard to go past.
