The space
A secluded escape just a 20 minute water taxi ride from Brooklyn, The River Cottage is the perfect place to relax and reset.

Berowra Waters, New South Wales, Australia

Note that the River Cottage is situated in pristine national park and is surrounded by bush, meaning there is abundant wildlife and all that goes with being in an isolated natural habitat.

As the house is on a tidal part of the river and accessible by boat only it is difficult for us to respond to emergency requests quickly but we will do our absolute best. Due to the tides, access is not recommended when the water is below 0.6m. Check in and check out times are variable to accommodate the tidal variations, so we ask you be conscious that a trip to Marramarra Creek is an adventure - and is not offering the things you may take for granted in a luxury beach house accessible by land! That said, all our guests fall in love with this hidden gem of the river and many end up wanting to buy there.

Guest access
The guest will have full access to the property.

Other things to note
Your water taxi operator or boat hire company will discuss suitable boating criteria with you. If you are arriving by your own boat check the Hawkesbury River - Bar Point (very close) or Dangar Island (not as close) tidal chart.

Linen for the queen bed is provided also bath & hand towels for 2 people. Tea, coffee, sugar & matches for the bbq/gas stove are onsite.

Note that there is a $130 cleaning fee per stay.

The River Cottage is off the grid and uses solar power, gas bottles and rainwater tanks. Best not to use of power intensive appliances such as hairdryers and microwaves, also keep showers short not long.

There is mobile/data reception at Marramarra Creek.

The Hawkesbury River offers the opportunity to explore a unique river system, to immerse oneself in nature, to experience adventure & what a gift this all is when the times we are facing are so uncertain. From a very young age I have loved being by the water, whether swimming or boating, and I feel privileged to now have the opportunity to share The River Cottage with like-minded people who wish to refresh their bodies and their spirits. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

During your stay
The River Cottage is best suited to couples. There's a fully equipped kitchen, oven, stove, toaster, Nespresso machine, BBQ, DVD library and Bluetooth speaker.

Its a great place to finish a book, start writing your own (Oscar-winning producers, writers and novelists have stayed at The River Cottage) or indulge in some fine artwork. You can always just unwind on the private pontoon in the abundant sun as the pelicans swim by.

Only 90 minutes total travel time from the Sydney CBD, The River Cottage is a world away from roads, noise and stress.

The cottage consists of a large upstairs bedroom with queen size bed, and an open plan downstairs area right on the waters edge. Downstairs living room boasts two large sofas and a kitchen opening onto a shady deck for those lazy summer afternoon barbecues.

Linen (sheets, pillow cases), blankets and doona as well as bath and hand towels are provided for 2 people. You will need to bring a beach towel if you are planning to swim.

The River Cottage is boat access only. Water taxi bookings can be made via Hawkesbury Water Taxis (approx. $130 each way from Mooney Mooney & Brooklyn) or BYO boat/rent a boat in Brooklyn.
