The Barn - French Provincial Accommodation

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

A unique, blissful accommodation experience... Situated on 100 acres in the Byron Bay Hinterland, the moment you arrive you are enveloped in peace and nature yet you are only minutes from Bangalow and Byron Bay.

Escape from the hustle and bustle but know that you are only a very short drive from some of Australias best and simply stunning beaches. Even closer you will discover beautiful valleys, freshwater creeks, rainforest walks, waterfalls and the boutique shops, restaurants & cafes of the historic Bangalow village.

You will discover the beautiful French provincial style barn upon Willeroo ~ 100 acres of hinterland beauty. Built to traditional European style, The Barn, features recycled exposed timbers, a sealed brick floor with an open plan lounge and dining area. A self catering kitchen, laundry and bathroom are all on the lower level which opens out onto a sunny paved area that includes outside dining and bbq. The romantic upstairs master bedroom features a lush elegant four poster bed, pitched timber ceiling and polished timber floors.

The second bedroom is a solid brick rendered building with undercover access that is detached from The Barn. This comfortable, light and airy bedroom features a beautiful solid timber queen sized sleigh bed with an antique wardrobe that opens out onto the outdoor dining and sunny paved area.

The Barn has been set up to very comfortably accommodate 2 adult couples.

The Barn is an adults only retreat and not suitable for children.

Over 15's and very young babies will be considered.

We have a minimum 2 night stay and your stay is based on peace and tranquility. Strictly no parties are allowed within the property.

Due to the abundant native wildlife we are unable to accommodate pets.

'Willeroo' is a working farm, and home to a happy heard of cows and cheeky chickens.

Local Information...

The township of Bangalow is a picturesque 10 minute drive and features boutique shops, galleries, restaurants & cafes.

Even closer, a 5 minute drive away is the quaint village of Federal, once known as Jasper. Here you will find the Federal general store & bottle shop and the Doma Japanese Cafe, run by former Oh Sushi chefs from Byron Bay, Takayuki and Takashi. There is ample outdoor seating and a traditional Japanese doma room, which features a low-slung table and floor seating.

Less than a 20 minute drive will bring you to Byron Bay and surrounding beaches. Byron Bay has so many things on offer it speaks for itself.

15 to 20 minutes away is the alternate & happening town of Mullumbimby, home of the Mullum Music Festival. Along your drive into Mullumbimby you will also find the popular tourist attraction, the Crystal Castle & Shambhala Gardens.

The Barn is a quick 40 minutes to the Gold Coast airport and 30 minutes to the Ballina airport. Brisbane is an easy 2 hour journey up the freeway.

Fantastic place to stay. So quiet, and a great place to just chill out with friends. The barn has all the comforts you need for a fantastic weekend. Close to the township of Federal, Minyon Falls and many other delights in the Byron hinterland. Would love to stay there again.

A jewel in the midst of tranquility

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with the Barn just by looking at the photos. However once we arrived we were blown away again by its charm. It is in the middle of the most beautiful countryside, and is wonderfully renovated, with every creature comfort you could possibly need. Karen was extremely helpful in making sure we got the most from our stay, including with information to help us explore the local area. We adored our time there and have already told lots of people about it!

Better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

The listing already looked amazing before we even arrived - but when we did it was better than expected! The Barn is so well looked after, clean and well-presented. It looks like it should be on a magazine and has a very warm and homely feel, stocked with all the essentials. We didn't want to leave and could have easily spent a week there! It's secluded enough to feel like an escape but only a 20 minute drive through beautiful country to get to Byron Bay.

We absolutely LOVED our stay and would highly, highly recommend it to anyone!

Gorgeous French Provincial Style in the country

  • 4 of 5

My daughters and I had a wonderful mother and daughter getaway this year, staying at The Barn, which was just lovely! The style of the property is very reminiscent of the French countryside and the barn itself was comfortable and well stocked with cooking and eating utensils as well as all the usual essentials. The four poster bed is very luxurious and the sunny outdoor courtyard was the perfect place for a lazy brunch. Its secluded location on a private property makes is a very peaceful place to stay, yet it is within easy driving distance of Byron Bay, Newrybar (where we enjoyed a lovely lunch at The Harvest Cafe), Bangalow and The Farm at Byron Bay (I must visit, especially to eat at the Three Blue Ducks. Overall, it was a perfect place for a relaxing few days.
