Basic bunkhouse-style accommodation is available in the old Penitentiary at Darlington – a unique opportunity to spend the evening at this World Heritage Listed convict site.
There are nine rustic sleeping rooms, each with six bunk beds and comfortable mattresses, a picnic-style table and chairs, and a wood-heater (wood supplied). A larger, tenth room sleeps 14 people.
There is no electricity in the Penitentiary rooms and the toilets block is separate but nearby. Drinking water is available in the Mess Hall.
You’ll need to bring your own food, bedding, a torch or lamp, cooking equipment, crockery and cutlery. Gas stove tops are provided for cooking in the Mess Hall’s camp kitchen.
Smoking is not permitted within the accommodation precincts. Please store your butts in your own carry-out container.
