Additional Information

COTTAGE DETAILS
Just a two minute drive (or easy 10-15 minute walk) from the heart of Woodend sits this stylish and spacious barn accommodation nestled into our 4 acre property. Within walking distance of all the amenities that Woodend has to offer, and yet with the relaxed feel of a small country farm.

An original building on the property, believed to date back to the mid 20th century, The Barn has been thoughtfully renovated to include a spacious, light-filled bedroom, an expansive living / kitchen area with soaring cathedral ceilings, gorgeous French doors leading to a sunny garden space, made private by a tall picket fence and softened by escallonia hedging, magnolias and ornamental pear trees. Add in the modern and stylish bathroom with large rain shower and instant hot water and you have the perfect getaway and base in the Macedon Ranges to call your own whatever your reason for visiting.

Bedroom
A cosy, yet bright space is perfect for those long, morning lie-ins. A comfortable queen size bed with quality bedlinen is complemented by abundant pillows and throws, and an electric blanket for those chilly nights. Reverse cycle heating and air conditioning keeps the bedroom at the perfect temperature and there is a wardrobe and chest of drawers provided for guest use. Stylishly decorated with a mix of vintage, locally sourced and modern pieces, it’s an ideal space for rest and relaxation.

Bathroom
Just across the hallway is the spacious and sophisticated bathroom, with large shower with overhead rain showerhead and separate hand held showerhead. Instantaneous, gas hot water ensures a great shower every time! A wall hung vanity with countertop sink and great mirrors and lighting are complemented by elegant tiling and the shiplap walls and ceiling give a nod to the building’s country heritage. Large soft towels are provided as well as a hairdryer.

Living / Kitchen
The living room and kitchen is the real showpiece of this building. With towering, cathedral ceilings letting in gorgeous light at any time of the day and carefully selected items of furniture, both vintage and modern, all selected to ensure the highest level of comfort and enjoyment. A Morsø wood burning fire warms the space beautifully in winter and a reverse cycle a/c unit heats and cools at any time of year. A huge ceiling fan also helps to keep you cool in the warmer months. Plus, carefully curated local or vintage artwork adds aesthetic interest to the space.

Although there is no oven / cooktop provided, all other kitchen facilities (including refrigerator / freezer, coffee plunger, sandwich press, microwave, toaster, kettle, portable hob and egg poacher) are here. Upon arrival breakfast provisions are provided, which may include eggs from our gorgeous flock of free range chickens, home made granola, bread and jam. Our pantry is stocked with provisions including tea, coffee pods, sugar, salt & pepper and olive oil. In the refrigerator you will find butter and milk. There is a Weber BBQ for guest use as well.

For entertainment during your stay there is a large, flat screen television with free to air TV channels as well as Netflix. We have also provided a selection of board games, cards, books and magazines for you to play and read during your stay. The Barn has its own WiFi network, however as the NBN can be a little temperamental at times, for those occasions that Netflix won’t stream we have provided some DVDs and a DVD player.

Private courtyard garden
In the warmer months, throw open the French doors from the living room and sit outside in your picturesque courtyard garden. You can choose from comfortable seating in the sun with a glass of local wine (or a cheeky g&t from one of the local gin distilleries) or to dine at the spacious outdoor setting after cooking dinner on the bbq provided.

In the cooler months, light a fire and cosy up with one of the throws you will find in your accommodation.

About Us
We live on 4 acres in a 120 year old farmhouse on the property. Our house is around 20 metres from the Barn and is our family home so please be aware that during your stay you may hear our children playing, be visited by our flock of chickens, hear the horses in the paddock or see us going about our business on the property. We are always happy to have a chat with guests and make recommendations of things to do, however we have created the private courtyard garden to ensure that our guests can still have privacy during their stay and their own outdoor space. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the furnishings and the layout of The Barn it is not suitable for pets or children under the age of five.

We moved here from Melbourne in 2014 and have spent that time renovating and creating the lovely property that we have today. We share a driveway so visitors will need to be aware of children and animals and drive accordingly. We are very proud of what we have created in The Barn and hope that our guests will enjoy and respect it as much as we do.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Barn Woodend.

GUEST ACCESS
We have created a lovely space for guests, both indoors and outdoors, to enable you to have privacy and space. If you would like to visit our chickens or horses or take a look at a specific part of our garden please feel free to ask us.

FLOWERS
If you are visiting for a special reason such as an anniversary or birthday celebration and would like us to include a bouquet of flowers on arrival please get in touch and we can arrange this. We run a micro flower farm from our property and during growing season we can put together a special bouquet as a gift (additional charges will apply so please message to arrange).

Woodend
1Listings
The Barn is an original farm building located on our property in Woodend, Victoria (Australia). Our family live nearby in the 120 year old farmhouse on our four acre property which used to be part of a renowned racehorse stud (we believe our house was the head trainer's house). We share our property with our menagerie of animals, currently including horses, chickens, cats and our mini daschund. We love to bike ride, swim, hang out with our kids and travel and experience other places both within Australia and overseas. We'd love to welcome you to stay in our beautiful barn.

    'The Barn' is a comfortable, cosy and luxurious home away from home in the beautiful town of Woodend. As soon as we arrived, we were blown away by the beautifully bright and airy interior including the soaring cathedral ceilings....
