    We absolutely loved our time at the woolshed! A weekend away with a group of friends for a catch up in an ideal setting. Great kitchen facilities for self catering, and it was great to pull the bbq out onto the deck and look out towards the beautiful south coast. The owners have done a wonderful job converting this old shed in such a lovely setting. We enjoyed exploring the property and doing some little walks in the area. Looking forward to our next visit! Thanks Rachel and Myles!

  • A lovely place to get away from the hustle and bustle

    A lovely place to get away from the hustle and bustle. Set on farmland, there are some fabulous walks to do on the property. Very close to Ocean Beach, which is stunning, and great for fishing and walking. Fantastic views from the cottage.
