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 surrounding the firepit or up by the dam you will find ceramic stools to sit and relax.

The Barn was absolutely stunning! The pictures don't remotely do it justice. My husband and I had never been to the Heathcote area and found the barn the most beautiful base to call home for the weekend. We spent the weekend exploring the vineyards in the Heathcote region and found the entire area to be incredibly welcoming.

I would highly recommend staying at the Barn and making sure you create enough time to enjoy it's beauty as well as enjoying the hospitality of Heathcote.

The Barn is such a beautiful experience and so peaceful to get away from everything.
Loved waking up with kangaroos everywhere.
Jacob was great at communicating also.

Myself and my 3 best friends choose The Barn Heathcote as our small little weekend getaway. It Was the perfect place to lounge out all day, listen to music and enjoy the serenity.
It was a hot weekend so the barn got pretty stuffy, but once we turned on all the fans and opened all the doors, the breeze helped a lot.
The large barn doors were a huge focal point for us, we loved having them open to enjoy the views of the kangaroos bouncing from paddock to paddock.
We had issues with the shower drain getting blocked 2 mins after starting our showers causing us to rush all of our showers. We also had an issue with the stovetop being unable to use the two burners at once which set us back a few hours of cooking. But we ended up finding another portable stove to use instead.
Overall a great weekend and great experience with wonderful scenery!
