Berry Hill - Hawkesbury Riverfront Homestead

100% Recommended
6 people
Less than 90 minutes from Sydney but feeling a million miles away from civilisation, Berry Hill is the perfect escape. Located on the spectacular banks of the Hawkesbury River a double row of casuarina trees border the water’s edge giving a sense of intimacy opposite the ancient gum tree-covered hills that cradle the river. The evening sun which casts an orange glow across the rock formation sets the tone for the perfect gin and tonic.

Escape the rush of the city and enjoy the tranquillity of the stunning Hawkesbury River. The grand veranda of the heritage listed cottage over-looks 75 acres of rolling grounds down to 2kms of private river-frontage. With 6 bedrooms, sleeping up to 6 people, Berry Hill is the ideal setting for a group trip away, retreat or destination wedding.

For over 190 years, Berry Hill has had many chapters in its journey. The property’s connection to the past is inescapable and is featured in Kate Grenville’s The Secret River. A place where you can embrace creativity and switch off from the rush of the city. An opportunity to slow down and reconnect with nature to appreciate just how special this part of the world is.

The original homestead has been lovingly restored respecting its heritage with an eclectic mix of antiques and rustic yet modern interior influence creating a sense of understated luxury. The vision was to create a place which feels welcoming and embraces a sense of occasion.

Also available for hire as a wedding venue, Berry Hill provides the perfect backdrop for any occasion. Inquire within for any questions you may have about your next idyllic escape.
