An old shed that oozes funk and attitude. The barn is in a secluded grassy setting with access to the estuary (swim and kayak) excellent for young children or big kids young and old and a large green field playground.

Two bedrooms plus a large open space with a double bed.

Within easy walking distance of local amenities, ie local shops, bakery, chemist, and cafe's. The local Activity Zone is at the end of the road with a Skate Park designed by Jason Parkes, Premium Skate Park Designs and a large playground area for the smaller kids, and a recently added a Multi Sport Court and Bike Tracks.

Don't forget to visit our Museum, an amazing journey though our local history and check out the gift shop and stay for bite to eat at the café.

A must to visit is the local market on a Saturday morning down at the Village Hall and afterwards a visit to award winning Bennett's Chocolates. Don't forget to visit our local Tavern, the only eating place overlooking the Estuary where you can enjoy a drink and a bite to eat.

    We absolutely loved the Barn. It was THE perfect place for our special wknd. Kids and adults had lots of room. Using the kitchen was a delight, loved the big table and everything so so easy and chic. We will definitely be back. Thank you having us!

  • This is a wonderful property

    This is a wonderful property. We know the area well, have owned and stayed in many baches, this is a very private, funky, well equipped place that we absolutely love. Highly recommend.
