Venture To The Valley

Set on the floor of the Megalong Valley just a short drive from Blackheath sits a luxurious, contemporary barn-style home called Foy’s Folly.

As you drive away from the quaint little town of Blackheath and head down through the lush bushland into the Megalong Valley, you feel as if you’re entering a secluded and almost secret location a world away from everything else.
Tucked away completely invisible from the road, we could've easily kept driving on not knowing that this beautiful homestead sat just on the other side of the crest..

Entering the vast light-filled living space we were taken aback by the breathtaking views both inside and out. The house itself is beautiful - but out through its almost panoramic windows are breathtaking views of open paddocks and towering escarpments in the distance.

We had nothing on our agenda but to relax, and we had little trouble doing so.

Our morning began with brewing some coffee and indulging in a long pancake breakfast out on the sun-soaked deck. Afterwards, we lazed about with a good book and watched the cows go about their day moving across the property.

As the sun went down and the night got chilly we huddled in front of the fireplace, soaking up its warmth with a bottle of wine (generously included from Dryridge Estate) and played a few increasingly competitive rounds of tic-tac-toe.

The gracious hosts Melissa & John built Foy's Folly to allow others to share a special spot that is close to their heart, and you can't help but feel the love and dedication that has gone into creating this truly unforgettable slice of heaven.

The Drive In
You wouldn't think you're minutes away from the vast, dry countryside of the Megalong Valley driving through this Jurrasic, fern-filled drive. It's like no other road in the mountains and one that's worth a quick stop to take it all in....
Explore The Property
As long as the front gate is closed, the property is yours to roam! Say hi to the cows as you head out to explore and try to spot the many wildlife living in this beautiful spot.
If you're lucky to visit at the right time you could also see adorable baby calves with their mothers!

A stone's throw away from Foys is this incredible cellar door, surrounded by breathtaking views to match. If wine isn't your thing, take a stroll through the vineyards and play a never-ending game of catch with local puppies, George and Angus....
