Description of Shed 85
Owners Hugh and Edwina have created a lovely tranquil family farm stay in NSW on 100 acres of grazing land. There are breathtaking views over the countryside to Mt Gibraltar in Bowral/Mittagong.
The property is two-storey with accommodation upstairs, and an open plan kitchenette, lounge and dining room on the ground level. The bathroom with a washing machine is located just off the kitchen. There are even toys for the kids and plenty of reading material if you just want to sit and relax on the patio by the fire pit or inside on the lounge. We spent most of our time outside enjoying the north-facing outdoor entertaining area and the fire pit in the evening.
If you have young ones a cot and high chair can be provided. The enclosed yard makes it very safe for young children to play in.
Heating is provided throughout and when we arrived the accommodation was so cosy and welcoming on a day when the temperature dropped to around 10 degrees.
The large patio offers a great entertaining space with BBQ facilities and a dining table available that can seat 6. A fire pit with wood is also provided, just perfect for roasting marshmallows at the end of the day. The fire pit at night became the perfect opportunity to catch up with the family and enjoy a drink or two and chat about our adventures in the Southern Highlands underneath the starry sky.
Shed 85 is enclosed and fully fenced from the main property. Shed 85 is dog-friendly and they supply a dog bed, bowls and spare towels if needed for your dog to enjoy his/her very own staycation.
