Sometimes the search for country accommodation sends you down a rabbit warren of kitsch but at Black Barn Bowral, everything has been painted with a designer brush under direction of owner, Colette Dinnigan. With sustainability front-of-mind, the refurbished barn harnesses solar and rainwater and features beautifully restored secondhand and antique furniture and fittings – from the floorboards fashioned from Danish cheese boards, to the antique doors and lights. Use this as your base to explore all the Southern Downs has to offer and return to soak in the clawfoot bath and sleep in beautiful Italian linen sheets.
Things we love
“It’s not just a quick fix, “Oh, this would be great as an Airbnb,” it is a home that I would absolutely, if I had the opportunity, love to live in.”
~ Collette Dinnigan
