Historic cottage in Blackheath with hot tub
Welcome to Cecil's Chair, a three-bedroom and two-bathroom cottage that is located in Blackheath in greater Sydney's famous Blue Mountains .

Cecil's Chair is perfect for couples or group retreats. It boasts one King bedroom, two Queen bedrooms, three sitting areas and two bathrooms both equipped with spa-baths. Simply relax in the sitting room watching the mist lift over the valley in the morning or the sun setting in the evening. Enjoy cooking a meal in the well equipped kitchen, take advantage of the culinary delights and shopping in Blackheath and surrounds or take a walk along Porter's Pass, with the start of this bushwalk 100 metres from the front door.

With a comfortable perch on Cecil's Chair you can immerse yourself in everything the Blue Mountains has to offer. If you are seeking a more adventuress experience you may consider para-gliding off Mount Blackheath, rock climbing at one of the numerous climbs accessed from Blackheath or abseiling and horse riding. For a more relaxing escape, enjoying the peaceful and varied village atmosphere or simply soak in the master spa and take in the views!

We love Blackheath and Cecil’s chair is the perfect mountain house. We couldn’t come this year but received a full refund despite late notice due to Covid ambush. Susi is an outstanding host, we have already rebooked for next year.
