Description: The original Book Barn, built early last century, is the iconic home of our Berkelouw Book Business.
The Book Barn is a stunning piece of architecture, boasting soaring cathedral ceilings with exposed timber beams and scores of bookshelves housing thousands of secondhand, rare and antiquarian books, with a selection of new books.
The barn has recently undergone extensive renovations under the guidance of award winning architects and has been transformed into a versatile space that can also cater for weddings, conferences and social gatherings. The Book Barn also offers a Cellar Door and Bendooley Bar & Grill - our Restaurant where we offer lunch 7 days and dinner on Friday and Saturday nights). Situated amidst our vineyards and with enviable rural views.
The Book Barn sits adjacent to a second barn which accommodates a large state-of-the-art commercial kitchen, staff areas and a private bridal parlour and ensuite – an elegant room that can also be used as a corporate breakout space.
The Book Barn will seat 150 people or can cater for 250 people for a standing event or buffet lunch.
When not in use for weddings or functions, the Book Barn continues to operate as a book shop with a restaurant and cellar door. It is a two-minute drive from the historic village of Berrima and a scenic ten-minute drive to the larger, up-market hamlets of Bowral and Mittagong.
