Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Barn! It was lovely and clean, with all the comforts of home that we required. In a great location, we popped around to Cliffy's for breakfast and coffees, and the rest of Daylesford was only a short walk or drive away! A very comfortable stay, we'd definitely return and recommend to anyone wanting some rest and relaxation.

Cosy, clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

So much thought has gone into presenting a wonderful place. Inviting the moment you walk in. The small touches made it so inviting. Extremely clean. My only suggestion is that some small maintenance matters in need of attention. One window did not shut properly and the kitchen taps were loose. Not all lights and power points functioned. But these are very small matters that did not change the fact we loved it and enjoyed our stay

Excellent Property in Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at The Barn for 3 nights, 3 Adults & 3 Children. We walked everywhere, The Barn is in good walking distance to everything. We got our coffee in the morning from Cliffy's next door, had breakfast there also. Walked to the Botanical Gardens, explored and had a lovely Breakfast in the Wombat Cafe. Spent time at the Lake, Park and Skate Park with the kids. Had some nice pampering at the Mineral Day Spa and thoroughly enjoyed some nice down staying warm & cosy in The Barn. This is my second time staying at The Barn and i know it won't be the last.
