We came away from such an awesome weekend at St Albans Courthouse. A place that feels so remote but yet is still so close to Sydney. You can truly shut off for a few days surrounded by so much history. With kids and dogs in tow I can honestly say it was one of the most relaxing weekends away we've...

A large group of friends with hordes of children and dogs descended on the courthouse and homestead for a long weekend stay. Kate and Rob, the hosts couldn't do enough to help us and were extremely welcoming, yet gave us plenty of space to relax and unwind. The rooms were beautifully clean and comfortably furnished, in keeping with the historical...

As a group of 4 families including 11 kids mainly under 10 (and 4 dogs). We took over the beautiful Courthouse and the wonderful Homestead and had more than enough room for us all. It is such a picturesque location and the kids loved swimming in the river, playing freely in the gardens and playing cricket in their back paddock....

We hired the Historic Courthouse for a weekend.The building is a historic, an old courthouse, which is just amazing (old, yet completely comfortable). There are a variety of dining areas, indoor in the formal dining, a casual dining areas (which I believe is the old exercise yard of the jail), and 2 covered outdoor tables. We love entertaining, so it...

This is the second time our group of friends have stayed at the Courthouse, St Albans. It is a beautiful drive through the countryside to get there and the lunch at the Settlers Pub is also great, especially on a sunny day. The accomodation is divided between the Courthouse and a separate house just up the driveway. The Courthouse is...

I have always loved St Albans with its special sense of history, amazing old pub and timeless beauty, the Courthouse Homestead B&B is a real gem tucked away on the hillside. We escaped from Sydney for a couple of nights with our two children - seeking quiet and a bit of nature, and it met all my expectations and more....

This weekend we spent at Courthouse Homestead B&B, with the entire Family, That was 9 Adults in the lovely old piece history. The old Courthouse was built in 1890, great sandstone building up on the hill over looking the quaint little village of St Albans. We had a terrific time, doing some bush-walking, sitting around the old log fire, walked...

The courthouse is a brilliant little slice of our convict history. My partner and I were lucky enough to have the entire place to ourselves the night we stayed. Ken the host is lovely, and provides you all the ingredients needed to make breakfast, as well as a supply of wine for purchase. The décor is a little dated, but...

We stayed in the Homestead for 1 night and we loved it. The rooms with electric blankets are good and the Settlers Inn Pub is only a short walk. Ken's hospitality makes staying at the homestead/courthouse even better. We had a very nice breakfast with a beautiful view at the valley from the veranda. Absolutely recommend staying here for a...
