The Church in Kangaroo Valley

Bedrooms 1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

The Church was built in 1887 and remodelled in 1966. It sits on a rise at the edge of the village opposite the Showground. It has been recently converted into a unique and comfortable holiday accommodation: it is light and spacious, has all amenities and is in strolling distance of cafes, restaurants, galleries and pool.

The open plan living area has a king size bed beneath the stained glass window. There is a television and a good selection of quality DVDs, CDs, books and games. The electric kitchen is fully equipped and the large blue gum dining table accommodates spread newspapers as well as breakfast, lunch or dinner. The bath and shower are fuelled by instant gas hot water and there is a gas BBQ on the veranda. The 5 metre high ceiling and tall windows give excellent light and the furnishings are unique - the bed and table are custom made, the pulpit has been incorporated into the kitchen and the swivel dining chairs and lounges are very 1960's, as are most of the other pieces.

The yard is enclosed to contain labradors and leap-challenged smaller dogs. There are vegetables and fruit trees which offer modest harvest in season and there is ample firewood for the combustion stove in winter.

Stroll to everything .............

Once you arrive, you could leave the car alone. It is a 3 minute dawdle to galleries, cafes, restaurants and The Friendly Inn. The pool and playground are over the road and the swimming hole below Hampden Bridge and the two canoeing companies are a little further. If you have a bike, there is a sealed path heading out of town in both directions. The golf club is about 5 kms away and Berry is 20 kms over the mountain to the east and Bowral 40 kms to the north.

Everything is provided .................

Quality linen and towels are provided and the kitchen has everything you need to cook with, except the raw materials of course - there are oils, spices, condiments and all the appliances.

There is a sofa bed if you have little people.

The verandah is contained for both pets and children.

This property is not to be used for commercial purposes without the express permission of the property manager.

Comfort and style

  • 4 of 5

Well positioned in the village, quirky but comfortable, too many books to read in a short stay, so we’ll have to stay another time.

Recommend breakfast at the General store, where the food is fresh and novel.

Unique Property

  • 4 of 5

The Church is a unique property, beautifully restored and well equipped. The garden however let's the charm down as quite overgrown and the gate is hard to manage to keep your pet safe. Great location so close to town, be aware though if you are a light sleeper comes with traffic being so close to the road and surprisingly busy for a country town.

Unique Property

  • 4 of 5

This is a really lovely property and something you don't get to experience everyday. However the 2 things that we thought we'd call out is the noise from the street as the Church is on the main thoroughfare and sadly the gardens/lawns were poorly maintained.

Note we stayed in Jan 2016........survey needs to be updated as the latest date is 2015
