About this listing

A charming 1880's church that overlooks the colo river.

The space

Charming Church on the of the Colo river. Has 2 bedrooms. The main bedroom has a double bed and the second bedroom has a double and a single. A cot is also available for toddlers. The church is on an acre of land and is surrounded with gardens. There are fruit trees and veggie. 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.

Other things to note

These are the things we love doing:
Cycling along the river.
Wine tasting at Tizzana winery
Homemade scones and tea at the oldest church in Nsw, Ebeneezer church.
Picking up freshly caught prawns from the local trawler Gary Howard.
Lunch at the apple bar in Bilpin
A country drive and dinner at the Settlers Arms in St Albans
A walk around the Botanical gardens and lunch at Sean's Panorama after at Mount Tomah.
.....but our favourite is to bring all the supplies and not go anywhere!

We absolutely loved the church. It is so beautifully decorated without being pretentious & therefore very child friendly. The outdoor patio and back garden were added bonuses. The area is stunning. Although, we felt that some basic requirements were missing for a property in this price range but overall loved our stay & would definitely return.
