The Historic Barnstay
A Fantastical Phoenix From The Ashes…
Loaded with rustic hippie chic, the artistically designed 100 year old Barnstay is lovingly called “The Old-Timer”. Conjured as only a fine artist with uber imagination can, the Barnstay arose from a refurbishing of the farm’s old machinery shed. Whilst Concetta added every modern convenience, she still maintained its vintage charm by employing an eclectic mix of heritage timbers, shutters, tin tile, & antique doors & windows in its restoration. The result is a fusion of fashion with functionality which creates its heritage magic! The Barnstay boasts a cosy dwelling feel while adorned with found ephemera & unique vintage finds. Concetta’s original artwork throughout is yet another of its otherworldly enchantments, you can visit her magnificent gallery too during your stay! Color, creativity & comfort punctuate this rare & whimsical historical domain…
