The Barn is a single room building constructed with thick stone walls and exposed internal beams. The building is aged well over 100 years. We are not sure of its original use but we have met a few who knew some of its earlier occupants. The Barn originally had the tiny window on the south side and one door many a year ago! If the walls could talk! For those that do book, look out for the circular patterns on the walls near the bed!
Today, The Barn is an utterly private haven that is furnished with a very comfortable super sized (mega) king bed - or can be separated into two king single beds - complete with natural fibre quality bed linens.
The Barn has a smart TV with Netflix to watch your favourite movies while you cozy up in bed and/or access the NBN WIFI network for all your modern communication needs. Or should you need to work ( and we hope you don’t), you can set yourself up on the drop leaf table or maybe - just stay in bed!
A lounge, cane chair, wardrobe, ironing board/iron and kitchenette (with toaster, fridge, microwave, kettle) ensures you have everything you need for a very comfortable stay.
The north facing deck is totally private and is a wonderful sunny spot to start your day. Later, you can sip your glass of Barossa wine with the occasional spotting of kangaroos in the paddocks. Buy some local yummy delicacies and your stay is complete!
The best is admiring the colours of the stunning sunrises and sunsets (always weather permitting). You may even have a silent balloon fly over. It’s all very relaxing, peaceful and rejuvenating for city folk.
The private shower room and toilet are a short walk from The Barn and are located in the Wash House that is semi-attached to the (circa 1845) historic original settlers building of mud/straw and stone. Take a step back in time and ‘walk the walk’ of the original Barossa settlers - but these wash facilities are modern day!
The Barn is a perfect romantic getaway escape for a couple. But equally, a great space for two - friends or family!
We are very happy to offer a later check out if we don’t have incoming bookings for the room on the day of your departure! Just ask! :)
It is what is on the inside that counts! We are slowly upgrading the grounds but at the rate provided, you will be very comfortable and private.
