  • Very cute barn, in a nice location

    Very cute barn, in a nice location. We walked to a couple of really nice wineries in the area, along a walking/cycling track that links several wineries. The barn had heaps of character - a unique place to stay. Bar area/record player was very cool, spa pool was great. Would definitely recommend, and will try make it back someday. Thanks!

    Lovely peaceful location in the country - we were very privileged to have it to ourselves. Cool barn with loads of interesting nick knacks to look at and great spa. Negatives were the uncomfortable beds and the treacherous stairs that I managed to fall down.

    This is a fantastic property, that we didn't want to leave after two nights! The spot is amazing, and a very close walk to nearby wineries, in a stunning rural setting. The barn itself exceeded all expectations - every room had something new to explore and admire. We loved the pool, hammocks, BBQ, spa and the visiting cats. Couldn't have asked for anything more - we will be back!
