The space
This charming little converted Church has 2 bedrooms. The main bedroom located upstairs on the mezzanine has a queen bed and a walking wardrobe and the second bedroom has a bunk bed: double at the bottom and single at the top of the bunk bed. A cot or toddler bed is also available for babies & toddlers (let me know your preference when booking).
A light filled kitchen and dining room, opened onto the garden on one side and the lounge room and bathroom on the other side. The bathroom has a bath and a large shower. There is an outdoor sitting area and a BBQ and a cubby house for the little ones.
The Church is on an acre of land and is surrounded with gardens. There are fruit trees, herbs and veggies in season. If you are lucky you should be able to collect some asparagus in the morning! It has a beautiful view down to the river and over the mountains. For those who have a boat there is a good public boat ramp 400m away at the Skeleton Rock Reserve. There is no private access to the river from the Church itself but via Skeleton Reserve only.

Please note we strictly do not allow any gatherings, parties at the Church on Airbnb, the space is just not suitable for larger groups. You’re most welcome to stay at the Church around the time of your wedding, please get in touch to discuss if you'd like. Please respect our wishes and our neighbours.

Where you’ll be

Lower Portland, New South Wales, Australia

The neighbourhood is friendly and helpful. A couple of dogs like to pop by and say hi, a few kangaroos in the early morning might pop around too and you might encounter a local bush turkey that is also part of the neighbourhood. It's a quiet country hamlet at the crossroad of the Hawkesbury and the Colo River.

We are a Franco-Australian family living in Sydney, with our 2 gorgeous girl and boy. When we don't have the chance to travel, we enjoy spending our weekends away in the Hawkesbury River, relaxing, cooking and spending time together or visiting and inviting friends over.
