The original Hartley Vale Public School - c1878 hidden away in the Blue Mountains western valleys only two hours from Sydney. The property has a series of historic buildings: the Old School is open plan with a loft bedroom and an additional let down double bed in the library. A beautifully appointed heritage treasure but with Wifi! There's an acre of outdoor living surrounded by Blue Mountains cliffs. The Tuckshop can be booked separately - see our other listing.

Hi Lucy so glad you enjoyed your stay in the beautiful valley. The main bed is always made up; the let down bed in the library is a sofa for day use, we need to be made aware of that requirement in advance. Thanks for pointing that out I’ll update our instructions.

Great location and a lovely place to stay. Close proximity to shops but also remote enough for it to feel like a bush escape. Lovely stay.

Hi Patrick, Great you enjoyed your stay in our lovely valley. We try and make all our descriptions as accurate as possible; the new stone pillars and old farm gate will be updated in the instructions (we are waiting on the cast iron lock). The instructions we send to you with the welcome email usually provides enough property and local information to keep you busy so if you do need help during your stay in this remote valley, you can call on us (we're just around the corner).

What a fantastic weekend we had here. The old school house is in a nice secluded location but still close enough to all that the Blue mountains has to offer. The school house is surrounded by beautiful mountain views. The accommodation was very clean and we loved the thoughtful t…

I am a regular traveller. I work each year in Antarctica as a climbing and skiing guide and travel in South America either side of my trip down south. I am friendly and considerate and always looking for inexpensive ways to travel more and for longer.
