The Barn began life on the banks of the Shoalhaven River. It was built to house feed and stores for a small dairy holding in the early days of south coast settlement. When we discovered it, while visiting friends on a neighbouring property, it was looking in need of a fresh start and so, we dismantled it, put it on the back of a truck and brought it to our property on the outskirts of Berry.

We rebuilt it and we installed a galley kitchen and bathroom, replaced the plumbing and wiring, replaced some of the jarrah cladding and the entire roof, installed a wood fire, ran a veranda around it, and lavished it with paint internally.

A beautiful, calm, natural setting.

The Barn sits high on the property at the end of a no through road, surrounded by trees, looking down the valley over vineyards, grazing land and forest all the way to the ocean at Seven Mile Beach, 10 kilometres away.

The site was once covered in lantana and privet but selective clearing and weeding has led to amazing natural rainforest regeneration of red, white and pencil cedars, koda, pittosporums, cleradendrons and whalebones for example. The bird life is prolific. It is a very private and peaceful hideaway just 5 minutes up the valley from Berry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning accommodation in a stunning location There is nothing you can fault about this property. My partner, cat ( cat) and I visited the Old Barn over the 2015 Easter long weekend and it was everything we wanted as a break out of Sydney. About a ten minute drive from the main street of Berry (watch the wombat on the way in, that fella was not going to move for noone....), the property is private and secluded. The "barn" itself is self-contained and has everything you need, including a deck of cards and some board games for the rainy nights. We stocked up on some Gerringong and Kangeroo Valley wines and enjoyed many an afternoon on the verandah watching the rain across the stunning landscape. I look forward to visiting again, thanks Annie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Getaway Escape Absolute tranquility My mum and I stayed here over Christmas holidays and it was such a lovely experience everything you need is there and the bush surronds are so tranquil. The interiors are nicely fitted out and we left feeling very relaxed... its only 10 mins to the beaches and town so everything is at your fingertips and the area is so picturesque! We will be back for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Sublime Our stay was simply out of this world. A wonderful quaint cottage with every convenience to hand but seeming a world away. It was as if we were in a tree house. Loved the peace and quiet. Location and proximity to amenties was excellent. Would definitely recommend it to family and friends!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely stunning Me and my dogs had such a wonderful time at the old barn. It is really a magical place, full of the sounds of nature and views of birds and fireflies. We even spotted an echidna down by the pond. It is green and plush, a perfect country getaway. I highly recommend it and would stay here again in a heartbeat. My dogs had a wonderful time running and sniffing :) we all felt very at home! 10/10

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely property We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, just perfect for us as we are raising a puppy and this is pet friendly accommodation. It was just a short drive to the village or for a day at the beach and yet you felt you were miles away from the hustle and bustle of the world, so so quiet. We will definitely stay again.
