  • Descripción


    We live in a 100yr old heritage guesthouse located in the pretty village of Blackheath in the scenic Blue Mountains.
    Margaret & Rowan purchased this place in 2014 after being inspired while cycling the Camino trail in Spain. It is run as group accommodation focusing on travellers coming to bushwalk, mountainbike and climb in the Blue Mountains. The house has 15 bedrooms and can sleep 28 guests. Plus 2 friendly cats!

    Originally from South Africa, we traded in our professional jobs in Sydney for a new life in the mountains to be closer to nature. We both love cycling, camping, and meeting people from around the world. We eat vegetarian and love eating foods from around the world.

    We are happy to offer a room in exchange for help around the property, 10hrs per week. Gardening - building veggie beds, updating our compost bins, mulching, setting up a seed raising area, potting up seedlings etc. Building - painting, updating decor, sewing cushions, furniture repair, etc.

    We have good wi-fi so you are able to work digitally from our place too. We don't provide food, you will need to self-cater.

    In return we provide a friendly environment, we are encouraging, supportive, generous and kind hearted. Staying with us is an enriching experience.

    We ask for a minimum of 2 weeks stay.

    Margaret and Rowan
