Strathearn Road, Leura
Self Contained House
Piccolo, uniquely styled miners cottage, in a quiet bushland setting.
Located on the northern side of the highway in Leura, Piccolo is a cosy, quaint and unique mountain retreat. The house is over 110 years old, built between 1910 and 1920 and was originally a two room miner’s cottage. The rooms have kept their charm as they still have the original timber walls, floors and solid door. Using the same building methods the cottage has been extended over the years to accommodate modern living and now has 4 rooms and a bathroom in total.
Piccolo is within walking distance to Leura Mall (20 minutes) and just a short drive to all the Blue Mountains has to offer. As the Blue Mountains is a Heritage Listed area there is so much to see and do. Along with the National Parks stunning walking tracks and scenery, there’s also gourmet food and artisan markets, a vast array of restaurants and cafes, beautiful gardens, boutique shopping and so much more! There is a constant evolving calendar of events you don’t want to miss out on. Check out Blue Mountains City Council for events and attractions.
We want your stay at Piccolo in the Blue Mountains to be everything you want it to be plus more. Whether you purchase some of the amazing local produce to cook in Piccolo’s fully equipped kitchen with farmhouse sink and stainless steel oven or the BBQ on the veranda, watch a movie on the lounge in front of the roaring open fire, (fire wood provided) relax and read a book or magazine in the library/dining room or listening to the wildlife whilst chilling out on the veranda with your choice of beverage.
Piccolo is intended for couples, however there is a sofa bed which can accommodate 1 adult or 2 small children. With an enclosed veranda, Frankie & Coco our Jack Russell x Fox Terriers love the sights and sounds of the mountains, we are happy for you to bring your dog or cat along with you too.
We have designed our Piccolo with a comfort and relaxation in mind. We hope you discover it is your home away from home too. So please unwind and enjoy everything it has to offer. We hope that you enjoy your stay and we look forward to your return, some day very soon.

This is a charming old cottage that is obviously well cared for by the owners. Everything we needed. Good heating. Easy
So thrilled to check in and find everything exactly as described and as per the photos in the listing. Very homey and cozy, private, comfortable and convenient. Decor was lovely and amenities terrific. View from the front deck especially in the afternoons when the birds began their early evening songs and dances was a pleasure to behold. Our little dog loved the yard, and settled in quickly. We will definitely book in again and recommend to friends and family.
The house is so unique from others that are available just due to the decorations. However, the rest of the house is beautiful and much bigger than expected. The huge wood storage was great for the fireplace.
The cutest nicest place would so recommend going.
Such a beautiful little cottage, well situated close to Katoomba and Leura – good access to cafes and hikes. Michael was great with communication, and making sure we had everything we needed. Loved sitting on the verandah with cheese and wine, the cottage is just such a lovely and peaceful place to be. Will definitely be back soon!
We loved- – Michael’s quick responses and flexibility – The location – The quaint and stylish decor – The bed, doona, pillows are super comfy and is such a lovely room – It’s quiet, short drive to the village
