Overlooking the exciting Blue Derby Mountain Bike Trails


Cascade Cottage is a quiet, cosy refurbished miner’s cottage in the historic mining town of Derby. Virginia and I purchased the family home back in January 2002, it has been a labour of love restoring the Cottage over the years to provide you with the look and feel of the past with modern day conveniences.

You will be able to rest and relax in one of Derby’s original Cottages. You will be so close to the Blue Derby Trails you will be able to hear the shredders’ heart beats and the pounding of their pulse. At the end of the day you can place yourself and friends on our decks which overlook the Blue Derby Trails. Enjoy a drink and reminisce about a really exciting day’s adventure. Cascade Cottage now has 3 buildings in which to accommodate you and your group. With 3 full bathrooms there will be no morning delays getting out onto the trails.

Stay at Cascade Cottage and you will benefit from our 120 plus 5 star reviews and 5 years experience looking after mountain bikers. Virginia and I have been here from the day the Blue Derby Trails opened.
