The building is the historic courthouse, built in the 1890’s by convict settlers. It has now been converted into completely self-contained, fabulously comfortable accommodation.
The old holding cells (jail cells) have been converted into bathrooms (with underfloor heating – something we are sure the old visitors to the cells would have appreciated), and the old exercise yard, kept in its original these housing a foosball table, and dart board (not to mention a wood burner for those chilly nights).
There are fires located throughout the building creating a really snug, warm and cosy environment – the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploring the valley. And, newly installed air conditioning is available in the formal living and dining rooms.
The Courthouse contains a fully equipped country kitchen, with new 90cm oven – for the chefs at heart, plus a gas BBQ undercover outside.
St. Albans is a truly majestic location. For the more adventurous guests there are fantastic bush walks, river swimming, kayaking, and bike rides. For those that are looking for a more relaxed visit, why not take a gentle country stroll followed by a long, lazy lunch at the Settlers Inn (the only pub in town!). Kate and Rob are generally on site and able to help you find a bush walk that suits your group.
Did we mention the pool!? It’s awesome.
