The Barn is a fully self-contained (and insulated) converted apple shed with a private balcony facing an orchard and views to rest your soul! It offers country living heaven with the delights and beauty of the Huon Valley at your doorstep and the conveniences of Huonville only minutes away. A great place to stop and enjoy life. Perfect as a writers retreat, artists retreat or every other kind of retreat. We look forward to welcoming you here!

The space
The Barn is set back from the main house with a private balcony facing the orchard. Surrounded by glorious gardens with views of Sleeping Beauty.

You will find The Barn has everything you need for a comfortable stay. It is insulated and has two heaters, electric blanket and extra blankets for cold winter nights.

It has a fully equipped kitchen including microwave, stovetop, small oven, small fridge and crockery. You may like to pick some greens from the garden and we provide a few kitchen staples including coffee, tea and olive oil and some condiments. Note we do not provide perishable items such as butter and milk, so please bring your own.

It has a private bathroom with a claw foot bath and luxurious shower. A private bedroom with a king bed and mezzanine bedroom with a queen bed overlooking the orchard and mountains.

We are a pet friendly property. Sadly our Great Dane, Jazzie, has passed away, but we love animals and would love you to bring your own pets. Please byo dog bedding.

We're active gardeners and you may see us in the garden, but we're careful to give you as much privacy as possible. You are more than welcome to wander around the gardens!

Guest access
Guests have full use of the barn, carport, the fruit orchard and lawn. Guests are more than welcome to check out the veggie patch and grab some herbs or greens for dinner.

Other things to note
Winter comfort:
In winter, nights do get cold in the Huon Valley. The Barn is insulated and it does warm up quite nice with the morning sun and the heaters. It can get chilly when empty, so if we know when you are arriving, we will try to get the heater on before your arrival!

There are two heaters provided, an electric blankets and extra blankets to keep you toasty at night. We do recommend bringing ugg boots, warm socks or slippers to keep your feet warm on the hardwood floors.

Summer comfort:
We have been getting hotter days in the Huon Valley lately. So help cool you down on those hot days, we supply a fan - though the nights do usually cool off quite nicely!

Sustainability:
We try to be as zero waste as possible in the barn. The consumables used in the barn (including shampoo, conditioner, body soap, dish soap and all cleaning supplies) are refilled with organic and chemical free products sourced from local wholefood shops (check out Unpacked in Kingston, Billy Hill in Franklin and Eumarrah in Hobart). The garbage bags are compostable and we carefully recycle what we can of the waste, hence why we ask you to help us out by sorting into the three different kinds. We thank you for your understanding and support.

We also use tank water and the sun as much as possible for the laundry.

While we do recognise that the heaters are not environmentally friendly, we don't want to replace them until they are no longer working or serviceable, to avoid throwing something functional into landfill.
