This is one of the best resourced and stocked places I have stayed in. Come prepared for a dinner in. The kitchen is generously stocked with all manner of gadgets and equipment, including a slow combustion stove, an outdoor wood fired pizza oven and weber bbq. Just kick back and relax with a good red in front of the fire. Lovely

Had a great stay, the pictures on the site really don't do the cottage justice. Beautiful stone and woodwork throughout, amazing fireplace, and a great fenced in garden our dog could explore. The owners were extremely friendly and easy to deal with. We arrived late on a Friday night, and lights were on, the fire going, and a lovely cheese plate and bottle of wine waiting for us. Was a great experience, have already started planning our next visit

Touched My Heart!!!!!
Barrow Cottage touched my heart like no other! We've stayed at a lot of cottages but I had tears in my eyes within 3 steps. Maria had lit the fire for our arrival and the cottage was immaculate, cosy, comfortable, a slice of heaven that my other half had to drag me away from.......if they ever sell this place I want to be first in line!

Our arrival at Barrow Cottage was warm and welcoming. Maria had set the fire, and left a lovely bottle of red, some hot cross buns and to the kids delight some Easter eggs. If first impression count, you couldn't do much better. The cottage has a lovely welcome homely feel and the kitchen inspires me to cook. I loved the wood fire stove!
The kids loved the chickens and I loved the herbs and veggie garden. I can't wait to go back again and fire up the pizza oven.
Great holiday break for family and our dog.

This was our second stay at Barrow Cottage, and lived up to expectations. Our interactions before the stay with the owner were extremely easy, welcoming and pleasant; the accommodation is charming and cosy, with two wood heaters - perfect for cool crisp winter mountain weather; and the surroundings are fantastic. We saw kangaroos and cockatoos and kookaburras, went bushwalking, played golf. And loved relaxing in the cottage. The kids loved it, my husband and I loved it, and my parents loved it too. I can't wait to book again.
