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.

Weekend tariff applies to a Friday/Saturday or Saturday/Sunday booking.
There is a minimum three night booking over Public holiday weekends and a minimum four night booking over Easter.
A one night booking is accepted midweek (Mon/Tues/Wed/Thurs) . The tariff is $225.

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.

Easy access to South Coast/Highlands' highlights.

If The Old Barn is booked please look at Tathra Cottage which may be available and is also featured on Stayz. The cottages are quite separate and you are assured of your privacy.


Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect weekender We absolutely loved out stay at the old barn. It was the perfect hide away for us and we would highly recommend it and can't wait to come back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Old Barn/Tathra Cottage We have stayed in both the cottages and were very sorry to hear that someone had not enjoyed their stay. Annie is a wonderful host and both stays left us relaxed and wanting more. We took our pup both times, which we have been puppy raising for Guide Dogs NSW/ACT for the past 12 months and he LOVED it. He met a gorgeous brown dog each stay and had a frolic on the verandah with them. Nature is all around you and the cottages provide all the creature comforts you need for that rustic, relaxing getaway.We can't wait to book our next stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Private hideaway The hectic pace of city living, surrounded by brick walls and cement had me craving peace and quiet and the sound of birds singing not sirens wailing. The Old Barn in Berry, a rustic little cabin, was just the sanctuary I was looking for. Private, surrounded by bush with just a glimpse down towards the coast. There were Lyre birds, Honey Eaters and a variety of Parrots for company (plus the odd wombat) - it's a nature lovers paradise. There are cooking facilities, and a veranda which is loaded with fresh air! I can’t wait to get back there.
