Newly built, architecturally designed modern 'barn' in the scenic valley of Little Hartley, just under 2 hours drive from central Sydney. Expansive views of the Blue Mountains escarpments and the Great Dividing Range on a country farm setting.

The space
The Black Barn is a newly built modern 'barn' set on 16 acres (although the sheep use most of this space) with uninterrupted views of the Blue Mountains escarpments and the Great Dividing Range. The barn is architecturally designed and takes advantage of the incredible views. The interior has a rustic but luxurious feel that blends into the country setting. The Black Barn has all the modern conveniences to make your stay as comfortable as possible. This is a family friendly property. A lot of the design choices are based on kids having fun here. Let us know the ages of your children and we'll make sure we have the equipment you need.

The living, dining and kitchen is an open plan area with double height exposed ceilings. The dining table seats 8 people and the kitchen has all modern appliances including a dishwasher and a Nespresso coffee pod machine. The kitchen is well stocked with pantry items like herbs, spices, olive oil, tea, coffee, paper kitchen towel, tin foil, paper napkins etc. You'll just need to bring the main ingredients for your meals with you - everything else is supplied.

We have a clothes washing machine and a dryer and rack for drying clothes inside. Laundry detergent and other items needed are supplied. Iron and ironing board available. We use environmentally friendly cleaning products at the barn that are also septic tank compliant. There is a guest toilet in the laundry area.

The Master bedroom is located on the ground floor and has a queen sized bed, ensuite (no bath) with wall heater, hairdryer, wardrobe space, sofa, desk, ceiling fan, aircon, USB ports and Bluetooth speaker. An electric blanket is available during winter. This room caters for up to 2 people only.

Bedroom 2 upstairs has a queen-sized bed, armchair, sofa, desk, wardrobe space, ceiling fan, aircon, USB ports and Bluetooth speaker. Bedroom 2 uses the main bathroom which is shared with the Kids bedroom. An electric blanket is available during winter. This room caters for up to 2 people only.

Kids bedroom is called the hayloft as it has large sliding barn doors which can open and look out into the living area. The bedroom has two bunk beds. It has wardrobe space, ceiling fan, aircon and USB ports. The room shares the main bathroom with Bedroom 2. Hot water bottles are available during winter. This room caters for 4 children or 2 adults (bottom bunks only for adults).

Main bathroom comes with a freestanding bath, shower, wall heater and heated towel rack, is upstairs and services Bedroom 2 and the Kids bedroom.

Heating and cooling: All bedrooms have reverse cycle air conditioning for heating and cooling. All rooms and living areas have ceiling fans. The living and dining area has a slow combustion fire with double-sided access/viewing and this is the only heating source for the kitchen/dining and living. Some firewood is available during the winter.

There is plenty to do on a rainy day. We have available 100's of movies, plus plenty of classic novels and board games. There is Lego and Duplo for the kids as well as Thomas the Tank Engine trains and tracks.

Every opening door and window has flyscreens so you don't have to worry about the insects when you're here.

The outdoor area has a table that can seat 8 people. We have a charcoal BBQ with some charcoal supplied. We have an in-ground fire pit with firewood supplied.

Our landscaping is young and it's a work in progress. We have planted a little orchard that will hopefully yield fruit and nuts in a couple of years. We currently have 11 sheep on our property that we jointly own with our lovely neighbours who live up here permanently. Our breed of sheep are called Dorpers and a couple of them had to be hand-reared so they are very friendly to guests. The other sheep can be friendly when you give them some 'sheep nuts' and then they'll be your best friends - until you run out. We will supply a little bucket of sheep nuts for the kids to feed the sheep.

Hello. My profile pic is of my family and I taken on a very cold and windy day on a beach in the North East of England. We live in Sydney and we want to share our amazing getaway, The Black Barn, with you. It's a magical place that will instantly make you feel relaxed and grateful to be in the countryside. My talented and hardworking husband, helped build The Black Barn together with some very skilled tradespeople. He loves coming to Little Hartley to work on the landscaping - mow the lawns, do some digging and care for the young trees. My sons love to just run around the property, pretending their sticks, timber offcuts and caulking guns are ancient weapons from the Middle Ages or from Samurai times. Don't be surprised to find the odd Nerf gun bullet in the long grass. And I like to potter around when I'm here, soak in the view (it never gets old), admire my husband nurture his exciting new plantings and roll my eyes when I see Nerf gun bullets and 'weapons' littered all over the place. We hope you love and enjoy your stay at our property as much as we do when we're up here.
