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. This place can sleep 28 guests but during the Greater Sydney Covid-19 lockdown is empty and available for travellers seeking a temporary home.
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 some help around the garden - building veggie beds, updating our compost bins, mulching 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.
