The Barn Suite
The Barn Suite is located in the middle of a magnificent sandstone barn which originally housed the estate's horses. The massive exterior walls are mossy and aged and a private entrance is shaded by a mature Ash tree. Inside, the stunningly dramatic suite melds history and tradition with walls of deeply-raked stone, exposed timber ceiling beams darkened with time, and a polished sandstone floor. Sink into sumptuous bliss on the very romantic king size four-poster bed.
Sparkling new facilities include a kitchenette with microwave, refrigerator and electric jug. Watch a movie from leather armchairs where thick rugs add comfort and warmth. A boldly white and spacious ensuite bathroom has a shower, hairdryer and heater. The Barn Suite has convenient flat and easy access with parking close by.
The Stables Suite
The Stables Suite is also located in the sandstone barn, formerly the stables. Beautiful stone walls are aged and speckled, velvety with moss. A private entry via steps to a small deck has outdoor chairs and table. The impressive suite is rich with history that marks the passing of time, from an era transformed. An original feed trough runs along a wall. Stone walls harken back to days of old, and original stall timbers are evocative of whinnying mares, clanking bridles, and the rich smell of freshly oiled leather. Above is a ceiling of dark timber beams, and below a polished sandstone floor with thick rugs. A leather covered Queen bed reflects the stable history and is made up with luxurious linen.
Brand new facilities include a kitchenette and a bright, white ensuite bathroom with shower. Equipped with heating, TV/DVD player, electric blanket, refrigerator, microwave, tea/coffee-making facilities, clock radio, and hair dryer for your comfort and convenience.
The Bakehouse is located in the magnificent old stone Barn and features the original baker's fireplace and oven in which the bread for the whole estate was baked. The exposed stonework of the fireplace is a dramatic feature of the bedroom. The three rooms - bedroom, dining area and bathroom - are painted snowy white, with fresh white furniture and bedding. A deep-set window offers views to Mount Direction. The bedroom is furnished with a Queen bed and leather recliner chairs. Modern art is by Tasmanian artists Helen Hopcroft and John Lendis, and Melbourne artist Irene Barberis.
The bathroom is striking - starkly simple - with pure white stone walls and fittings contrasted by a dark slate floor. A free-standing bath is inviting and there is also a separate shower. The suite is equipped with heating, TV/DVD player, electric blanket, refrigerator, microwave, tea/coffee-making facilities, clock radio, and hair dryer.

The Queen bed has an electric blanket and the bathroom includes a shower, hair-dryer and heater.
