Great house - great location near pea soup beach
Very well presented with everything we needed. Closed off garden meant we could bring our dog. Would definitely stay again.
We loved the house and location
Our family really enjoyed the character of the barn, it’s cosy and welcoming just like home. Our teenage boys enjoyed the seperate living area upstairs. The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Port fairy itself is very pretty and offers plenty of outdoors activities.
Disappointed! But our little Maltese enjoyed!
The facade looks amazing, but inside there were just too many issues. The downstairs area , in which we stayed, is in much need of a facelift and repair.
1. The bare brick floor throughout requires more carpets. Not good particularly in the bathroom.
2. The Soap holder in the bathroom was corroded enough to being unhygenic. The shower floor is dangerous ..too slippery and the shower head is huge and unadjustable.
3. There is water damage on some of the internal floor level timbers with evidence of rot in two rooms.
4. The kitchen blind didn't pull down; leaving a view of a disgraceful back garden.
Having said this, the upstairs area looked much cleaner and more modern. However the sharp bend in the staircase was not a turn on nor an enticement to use those facilities.
However it is certainly pet friendly with an enclosed yard. And , although all the signage on the road and up the road and on another well known travel website says it is a Bed & Breakfast; it certainly isn't. There were no breakfast provisions available.
A good choice for pet owners
This property is a short stroll to the beach, which is dog friendly over the winter/ autumn period. The house has everything you need and can almost be used as 2 separate units - full bathrooms and at least one bedroom to each floor - also separate entry could be used.
Its not super modern, but contemporary and could probably do with a good spring clean...just those things that don't get done on a daily basis ( carpets) etc , but all usable areas are fine and clean - linen was fresh and toiletries provided. To be fair this is a pet friendly property and this is a pretty good effort. maybe the owners need to review the cleaning contract.
A winter stay might be a bit chilly until you get the gas fire going - its a belter and pumped out enough heat to warm the upper floor.
The outside space for the pooches is great. We left the car outside the gate and maximised the space, although you can pull the car right up to the property.
Nicely situated for a walk along the beach and through the reserve to town. Only a few minutes in the car.
All in all, a good stay for a reasonable price.
The overall stay was quite pleasant although from the advertised photos we were expecting a more modern interior. It took a day to get the downstairs TV working and the upstairs fridge smelled and the interior was covered in mould. Of less importance was the fact that we had trouble getting our car up to the house for security purposes as the driveway was too slippery. Otherwise it was quite comfortable and warm. The bedding and bathrooms were all good and overall it was a pleasant stay. Correction of the above matters would make it that much more impressive.
It was in a good location, very quiet. Every thing you needed was there. Nice and warm. Loved it.
We had a wonderful time at the property.
Thanks kelvin, so glad you enjoyed your stay at the ‘barn’. Look forward to hosting you again . Louise
