Flowers Cottage is a beautifully renovated, heritage-listed miners cottage only a few minutes walk away from the beach. It is fully self-contained and accommodates six people luxuriously.
Catherine Hill Bay, fondly referred to as “Catho” by the locals, is only one hour from Hornsby, Sydney, and half an hour from Newcastle.
It is an old coal mining town (suppling the coal to Sydney in the old days) with about 100 original miners cottages; many of them in almost original state. Catherine Hill Bay is one of the only two villages in New South Wales that are listed on the State Heritage Register. The area provides both pristine beach and unspoilt bush environments.
The ocean beach is a short stroll away and Lake Macquarie is a couple of minutes by car. There’s good fishing as well as the famous swimming, surfing, boating and bush walking opportunities.
Flowers Cottage has been lovingly restored and can accommodate up to six people but sorry no pets. The original miner’s cottage (built in 1908) contains three bedrooms (two with queen-sized beds and one with double bed) and a sitting room (with sofa bed), and is linked to generous living room and kitchen/dining area. The cottage retains the original floorboards and many other heritage features but has been up-dated (architect-designed) to ensure that you thoroughly enjoy your stay.
A slow-combustion stove keeps the living areas cosy in winter and all bedrooms have pedestal fans and heaters. Two large decks (one covered for all-year use) provide some beautiful outdoor space and a barbecue area.Balcony Bath Barbecue Blankets DVD/Bluray Player Electric Blankets Refrigerator Hairdryer Heating Lounge/Dining Area Microwave CD Player Tea/Coffee making facilities Television Washing Machine
