7 Self-contained cottages in the Blue Mountains for a romantic weekend getaway

For many, romance isn’t confined to a bunch of roses and bubbling champagne. It may be climbing to an amazing cliff top, descending into lush green valleys, or breakfast in bed. We have put together a list of our self-contained accommodation that offers an opportunity for you to reconnect with each other without all the pomp and fuss.  

Only 90 minutes from Sydney, the Blue Mountains offer a romantic weekend escape without the hours of travel. Here are our small and cosy accommodation offerings close to popular villages of the upper Blue Mountains to make your choice even easier.

1.     At the Sister’s - Katoomba

Mid Century self contained accommodation Katoomba

At the Sister’s says less about who you will be staying with, and more about the amazing location of this beautifully renovated little cottage. With the Three Sisters just down the road, this self-contained cottage is a 1950’s delight decked out in original mid-century pieces. Comfort, style and proximity to everything are a bonus.


2.     Allambee - Katoomba

Katoomba self-contained accommodation Allambee

Allambee Cottage in Katoomba is located nice and close to the centre of the village yet feels tucked away from it all.

This classic Blue Mountains timber cottage has everything you need to make your getaway comfortable and romantic.

Owned by renowned artist Jane Canfield, this quaint studio cottage is set in the grounds of a larger guesthouse property.  Amble up to Leura Village for a leisurely morning of shopping, book yourself a massage and pampering at one of the many spots along the mall, or head out to a romantic dinner at Silk’s restaurant, or Leura Garage.


6.     Cliff View Studio - Leura

7.     Leura Fairways East - Leura
