Additional Information

BEDROOMS
Three spacious bedrooms offer a very comfortable night’s sleep. Downstairs, the ‘King bedroom’ features a luxurious king-sized bed, a sitting area and direct views into the surrounding bushland. The ‘Queen bedroom’ projects gorgeous sunny reflections from the pond outside onto the French-washed walls, inviting you to listen to the sound of the gently flowing water. Upstairs, ‘the loft’ contains the final King sized bed, adjacent to another small sitting area perfect for enjoying the views of the nearby orchard and grounds. ***Please note the stairs leading into the loft are not suited to anyone with mobility issues.***

AIR CONDITIONING
A large split system helps cool the barn from the kitchen/living area and all rooms have large opening windows. The King bedroom and loft have ceiling fans to circulate fresh air and the Queen room has an electric fan.

KITCHEN
The kitchen offers quality, modern amenities including a falcon classic deluxe oven, large refrigerator/freezer, walk-in pantry, microwave, plenty of cookware and rustic concrete benchtops. For the more adventurous, an outdoor pizza oven offers the thrill of serving your own perfectly cooked pizzas or roast. Even the living room is tempting you to get cooking as the large central woodfire features its own oven and cooktop!

BATHROOM
The spacious & light-filled bathroom features a freestanding bath looking out onto bushland & a modern shower, vanity & toilet.

OUTDOORS
Step outside into the five acre grounds and you’re treated to the sound of flowing water from the neighbouring creek and the unique ‘mote’ style pond that appears to wrap around the barn’s front door. Birdwatch from the gazebo and you might be joined by one of the local, mysterious lyrebirds who famously make this place their home. The patio offers alfresco dining, while you soak in the sunny, north facing views of the dell below. Step down from the patio into the edible garden and veggie patch to find something to add to your dinner or maybe pick something from the orchard if you can’t wait. Explore the edge of the wild with huge, towering gums above and untouched national park all at your doorstep.

PETS & WILDLIFE
Wombats, koalas, wallabies, kangaroos, owls and lyrebirds are frequently spotted at this location along with a huge variety of bird life. For this reason we do not allow pets on the property as we respectfully wish to preserve the grounds for the local (and very flighty) wildlife.

CHILDREN
Although we wish the magic of the property could be experienced by all, unfortunately the ponds, fireplace and unguarded stairs make the property unsuitable for crawling babies or unsupervised children.

PRIVACY
The 5 acres at the barn is secluded and exclusively yours during your stay. We live on a neighbouring property which is separated by dense bushland & will respect your privacy, though are more than happy to provide help and advice as needed.

ACCESS
The shared (unsealed) driveway can become very wet at certain points in the year and is quite steep. Despite this, access is fine for smaller vehicles.

WIFI
Free wifi is available - (NBN via satellite service) is provided and can be used for streaming, voice/video calls, messaging, browsing and general use.

PHONE RECEPTION: Phone reception is patchy. Telstra customers may get some reception intermittently.

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE
Due to local laws outdoor fires may not be lit during the CFA fire danger period (to be announced, but generally occurs between early-mid summer and mid-late autumn). This unfortunately includes the use of BBQs and pizza ovens. No fires may be lit on days of total fire bans.

Booking availability is weather dependent during the fire season, subject to CFA fire danger ratings. The Barn will become unavailable for your stay during a CODE RED fire rating and you will be fully refunded. Guests have the option of cancelling during extreme/severe fire ratings at short notice with a full refund.

My partner Lynton & I recently ditched our busy city lives in pursuit of a slower & more sustainable existence in Gippsland’s beautiful bushland. When we’re not working, you’ll find us playing music, gardening or creating art, clothing or furniture. Growing & cooking our own food is a particular passion of ours, but we also love eating out & trying new food when travelling.

      Woodfire Pizza For Dinner

      We saw the Woodfire Pizza oven in the listing photos and couldn't wait to give it a red hot crack when we arrived! Roll out some dough and throw on your favourite toppings, it takes some time to get it up to the right temp so start the heating of the oven process earlier rather than later. Once at the temp you can start banging them out super quick!...
