Dalpura blends modern conveniences with that classic cathedral timber ceiling mountains cottage character.
Be greeted with views of the stunning Kanimbla valley at the end of the road as you drive in, you feel as though you are really on top of the blue mountains and adventure awaits. And indeed you are, as Blackheath is the highest village in the mountains, sometimes getting snow in winter time. And the dark clear night air is fantastic for star gazing.
If you are lucky you might even find yourself face to face with a kanagroo or echidna in the main street or local field around dawn or dusk.
Dalpura is the perfect place for a romantic couples getaway, but is very popular with small families or two couples. The cottage comfortably hosts four people in two bedrooms. We recommend only four guests maximum as there is only dining and seating for four.
The gorgeous large main loft bedroom with queen sized bed has that classic wooden mountains cottage feel about it.
The 2nd bedroom downstairs has a King sized bed that can be split into and made up into two king singles upon request after booking.
All beds have brand new super comfortable premium A.H.Beard Kingcoil mattresses.
Quilts are super warm 12 TOG thermal rating.

Blackheath is an ideal location to avoid the mainstream crowds at Katoomba, yet only a short drive to access many classic and stunning locations and activities.
The cottage is a short few minutes drive to the main street of Blackheath village, one of the last bastions of the classic Blue Mountains.

Blackheath is also a great base to visit Katoomba, Leura, Wentworth falls, and Mount Victoria. Jenolan Caves is only 1 hour away and can be done as a day trip.
Your hosts Nicole and Dave live in Sydney, so we won't be there to meet you. But we are only a phone call away should you have questions or need advice on local attractions. We are experienced mountaineers and can advise on the best walks and adventure activities to suit all levels.
Dalpura is situated in a quiet secluded street perched on the edge of the Kanimbla valley. It's secluded location has that real mountains feel to it.
The night sky above Blackheath with the Milky Way is just amazing.
