The Barn at Heathcote

Barn in Heathcote, Goldfields, VIC
100% Recommended

We like to think of it as a rural warehouse. Hidden behind the rough sawn timber exterior of our American style timber barn you will find a light and bright welcoming space. It has everything you could wish for. Comfy place to eat, relax and unwind. Step outside the barn doors and wander around the 6 acre property.

Outside you will find cane lounge and chairs up by the dam you will find ceramic stools to sit and relax.

Strictly no events or commercial activities including but not limited to photography permitted without prior consent and additional fees paid. Please contact us to discuss.

The barn was amazing!!! We already can’t wait to go back!! Every little detail was perfect, from all the Knick knacks to the furniture placement, Jacob and Brad have done an amazing job.

We went to a few wineries during the day which were all recommended, Heathcote II, Sanguine estate and Chapoutier 😍 and you can’t go past having breakfast at Fodder cafe in town!!

But overall the barn was the highlight of our weekend! Again such a beautiful place for a perfect weekend getaway!

Such a beautiful property and an idillic place to stay with everything you need. Would 100% recommend. The Barn is very close to the lovely town of Heathcote which has really friendly locals. We visited the Pink Cliffs which were very unique! Lovely owners who were easy to communicate with....

The Barn was an amazing stay. Had everything we’d ever need and made us completely forget all our inner-city Melbourne woes. We will definitely be looking to stay again.
Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a getaway. But bring warm clothes if you’re going in Winter, The Barn gets cold even with the fire pumping! But that’s all part of the fun.
