The Shed on Blackwood


The Shed on Blackwood is rustic up-cycling: from the basic shed, to the doors and windows, the window latches and the bathroom’s door and an old tin trunk I found at the tip. The Shed has been completely modernised with a new kitchen and bathroom, fully insulated, freshly painted and tiled, mostly new furniture (some vintage pieces) and a robust wood-burning firebox – nothing prevents you from having a very comfortable stay with us.




Spend hours watching the myriad of birds (over 43 different birds have been spotted, many of them endemic to this region), wander around the 2 1/2 acres of garden, talk to the chooks or Audie and Mopsy, our labradoodles, maybe walk down to the river or simply sit under the lean-to shed and while away the hours reading or dozing.We are surrounded by beautiful walks, some just outside our front gate, some a few kilometres away.

Rates are $135/night for two adults, including DIY essentials (porridge, bread, milk, sugar, s&p, oil, herbs). Orders can be taken for additional provisions at cost – 24 hours notice required please and dinner can be catered for if you don’t feel like cooking, however, we’re not chefs merely cooks so the food is home cooking.
