I love seeing an old building rejuvenated and brought back to life. You can’t build something new and expect it to have the same feeling and ambience as something old.
Tenterfield, just three hours drive from Brisbane, is a favourite country town of mine to visit, my parents are also equally in love with the place.
When I saw that a new boutique accomodation had popped up last year on the Tenterfield scene, I was desperate to get there fast. Steve and Bianca, the owners of The Old Council Chambers have done the most amazing job of bringing the neglected building back to life.
We booked a weekend there in February, earlier this year. Myself and my husband in Chambers 1 and my parents booked Chambers 2 - so we were fortunate to have the whole place to ourselves.
Upon arrival it was like walking into a beautiful Pinterest board.
Both chambers were welcoming with huge bunches of fresh foliage throughout the spaces. Below is Chambers 1.
And below here is a shot of Chambers 2 and the outdoor area.
