Description

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 This was the perfect place to unwind. Everything you need to relax and enjoy the serenity. The place is immaculate and well cared for, and feels like home in an instant. We absolutely loved the 5 days we spent here. Thanks Annie!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We loved our weekend in a beautiful little cottage with a fantastic wood fire at the end of a country road. I loved the quiet, the space, the feeling, the countryside, the views. Berry is about 5 ks away. It's a great little town but we didn't spend too much time there....too busy for us :)....we preferred to stay in the peace and quiet of the cottage. It didn't matter one bit it rained cats and dogs!Jonathan & Ying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Old Barn was lovely. Cosy, peaceful and relaxing. It was great to get away from the city and just sit by the fire and read and sleep. Would definitely visit again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We loved our stay at the Old Barn. It is very quaint and the outlook is lovely. The fact that we could bring our dogs and they could stay with us was the reason we chose The Old Barn. We will be returning again in the future. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The "Old Barn" Property was everything my Girlfriend and I expected and more. The cottage is very private with great vistas of the idyllic hillsides of Berry. Only a short drive to the centre of town, wineries and the glorious 7 mile beach. We had a fantastic time over the weekend and would return in a heartbeat. Thoroughly recommended for a romantic getaway for 3 - a couple with a dog! Hopefully you have secured more firewood, the Pot Belly Stove was working overtime during our stay!
