"We loved the seclusion of Lyre's Loft and the 'to-die-for'view into the Hartley Valley. The slow combustion heater ensured snug evenings curled up with good books. While not within walking distance ..."

An escape to Lyre's Loft is easy!! Only 2 hours from Sydney via the M4 through Katoomba, or (my preference) up the Bell's Line of Road via Richmond, the "wild-side" of the Blue Mountains, you enter the realm of the lyrebird. At 1100 metres high, with a spectacular view into a deep, rainforested mountain gorge, the symphony of bush-sounds, conducted by the lyre bird with backing from his orchestra, will override any need for CD's and city cacophonies. Totally relax and unwind in a very comfortable 2 bedroom home that has been recently renovated and furnished. and has the commanding views that you expect of a classic mountain retreat; views where you can sit in comfort and watch the everchanging spectacle of light playing over rugged cliffs and distant valleys. Don't just come to the Blue Mountains... become a part of their grandeur... in total comfort at Lyre's Loft.

Languages spoken: English(Conversation)


Bell is a very small town (no shops... no traffic lights!) 10km from Mount Victoria, 20km from Blackheath, Mt Tomah Botanic Gardens or Lithgow. All of the major attractions of the Blue Mountains are within a 30 minute scenic drive.


At 1100 metres above sea level, the climate is what you would expect of the Blue Mountains.... exhilarating in its everchanging moods."If you don't like the weather up here..... then wait a minute..."; there is no better place to watch the weather changing without leaving the comfort of your arm chair. Lyre's Loft occupies 29 acres encompassing the headwaters of Monkey Creek with ridge top mountain ash forest, windswept heath and deep pockets of cool temperate rainforest. About 2 acres above the home have been extensively planted with exotic trees and shrubs, creating sensational seasonal contrasts with native vegetation as a background.
