  • Descrição


    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 now run as accommodation for groups only. The house has 15 bedrooms and can sleep 30 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 and food in exchange for volunteer help around our private residence on the property, 20-25hrs per week. In our private garden we need help with building veggie beds, updating our compost bins, mulching, setting up a seed raising area, potting up seedlings etc. In our private flat we need help with painting, building/installing shelving and some sewing projects.

    We have good wi-fi so you are able to easily connect to your friends and family.

    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
