Overview

About the property

The Shed sits on the crest of a 100 acre property, with sweeping views over the Southern Highlands. Utterly peaceful, yet just 5 minutes from Moss Vale. Shed 85 is ideal for three couples, families and friends and intimate enough for a romantic getaway.

Shed 85 is perfectly situated round the corner from Mount Ashby Estate cellar door and Mali Brae wedding venue.

Bring your Mountain Bikes. Mountain Bikers will love the miles and miles of fire trails in Meryla State Forrest which adjoins Fitzroy Falls and Morton National the way down to Kangaroo Valley. Just turn left out our front gate and you can ride away the day.

Bring a packet of marshmellows and toast them in the little outdoor fire.

Bring a good book and just have a little R and R in the peace and quiet.

Cure your family of nature deficit disorder and spot deer, wombats, kangaroos, kookaburras, wallaroos, echidna, eagles and black cockatoos on the property at your leisure

Experience the farm, pat the silky chickens, watch the cattle graze, pat the ponies, go for a big long walk and collect the abundant kindling.

Marvel at the 100 metre cascades of the famed Fitzroy Falls, Carrington Falls, and the Illawarra Fly.

Breathe in the history at the nearby towns of Bowral, Berrima, Sutton Forrest and Exeter and Bundanoon all within 15 mins.

Here's what our very FIRST beautiful guests had to say about their stay at Shed 85............................

We originally made a booking with another property on Stayz, but turned up on the WRONG weekend by mistake (ours!), before being referred to Shed 85 through the local tourism board. 

And what a treat to arrive. We drove up a tree-lined driveway to the stunning hillside property, piled out of our cars, and our whole family instantly bonded with theirs. Check. We were ushered into the family home, offered a drink, and seated before a cosy fire while our rooms were being prepared. Nice.

The accommodation was fantastic. Decor was eclectic, romantic and fun; everything was boxfresh. Great BBQ area, great little place to cook and many goodies set out for us in the pantry by the owners. Three bedrooms, ample, lovely and private. 

Edwina was an impeccable hostess and provided all of the tiny details that makes a stay memorable. Fresh eggs from the chickens, reservations for dinners out, a bonfire for the kids - it goes on and on. Absolute country charm. 

Perfect setting. Walks, wildlife, Kodak moments around every corner. My favourite time was the mornings, when the grass was dewy and mist was beginning to lift off. Beautiful. Dad found a wombat skull on one of our walks, which he now has on his mantle in New York. 

Can't say enough - we loved it and will be back.

About Edwina Savage

We moved to the Highlands 10 years ago. It took us 3 years to find our property. It had the best of both - great house on 100 acres. We built Shed 85 nine years ago to house our helicopter. The three bedrooms were built at the back of the Shed for friends and family - but I felt like I was running a BnB so hence the idea was born along with our third child Eddie ! There’s a three year gap in the reviews because I had a very nice lady living in Shed 85 while she was looking for her own place. She found her own place so we are back in business and ready for guests again.

Edwina Savage purchased this farmhouse in 2007

Why Edwina Savage chose Manchester Square

It’s the best of the ‘good life country experience’ close to Sydney. As I said we took three years to find this gem - so happy to share our slice of heaven.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Three ponies in the paddock next to the Shed - they love a carrot. Close to all the little towns Moss Vale, Bowral, Exeter, Sutton Forrest, Berrima, Fitzroy Falls, all the little shops, vineyards, wedding venues etc.

Wonderful southern highlands property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Edwina and Hugh's property. It was a fantastic location, a 5 minute drive to the heart of town. We woke up to horses in the paddock right next to the front door and we spent many hours exploring the property on foot. I highly recommend this place for anyone wanting a relaxing escape

The ideal kids get away- we loved every minute of our weekend at the Shed 85. From being greeted by cows upon arrival, to collecting fresh eggs, and letting out the horses into the paddock. To watching the sun set over the country side whilst the kids (4yr old boys and 14month toddlers) were jumping on the trampoline with the property owners children, Charlie, Jess and Eddie. The walk amongst the cows on the property was also enjoyed by all. The house is well appointed especially the BBQ and outdoor fire area. Will definitely return!

A fe of my friends booked Shed 85 for a weekend of good food, wnine and company. We had a lovely time - it was a sweet house with very comfortable furnishings (and ample heating). Plus, it had a great outdoor area with a warm fire, BBQ and a gorgeous view. Having breakfast overlooking the neighbouring farm was delightful. A great spot.
