The Barn at Braemar Cottage, Boutique Accommodation Woodend, Macedon Ranges

About Us

The Barn is located on our 4-acre family property and is home to our family as well as our flock of heritage breed chickens, a couple of horses and our mini dachshund, Arlo who takes his job of alerting us of when guests arrive very seriously!


We live in the 120-year-old farmhouse and share a driveway with our guests.  You are likely to run into us around the property, working in the vegetable and flower garden, or out in the paddock and will probably hear our children playing outside.  We are very happy to show guests other areas of the property if they are interested or to introduce them to the horses and chickens.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Barn Woodend!

Our Property

Just a two-minute drive (or easy 10-15 minute walk) from the heart of Woodend sits this stylish and spacious barn accommodation nestled into our 4-acre property. Within walking distance of all the amenities that Woodend has to offer, and yet with the relaxed feel of a small country farm.

An original building on the property believed to date back to the mid 20th century, The Barn has been thoughtfully renovated to include a spacious, light-filled bedroom, an expansive living/kitchen area with soaring cathedral ceilings, gorgeous French doors leading to a sunny garden space, made private by a tall picket fence and softened by hedges, magnolias and ornamental pear trees. Add in the modern and stylish bathroom with large rain shower and instant hot water and you have the perfect getaway and base in the Macedon Ranges to call your own whatever your reason for visiting.

We are always happy to have a chat with guests and make recommendations of things to do, however, we have created the private courtyard garden to ensure that our guests can still have privacy during their stay and their own outdoor space. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the furnishings in The Barn, and as we have animals on the property,it is not suitable for children or pets.

A cosy, yet bright space, the bedroom is perfect for those long, morning lie-ins. A comfortable queen size bed with quality bedlinen is complemented by abundant pillows and throws, and an electric blanket for those chilly nights. Stylishly decorated with a mix of vintage, locally sourced and modern pieces and with windows framing the view of our 100-year-old Elm Tree, it’s an ideal space for rest and relaxation.


Just across the hallway is the spacious and sophisticated bathroom, with a large shower featuring an overhead rain shower head and separate handheld showerhead. Instantaneous, gas hot water ensures a great shower every time! A wall hung vanity with countertop sink and great mirrors and lighting are complemented by elegant tiling and the shiplap walls and ceiling give a nod to the building’s country heritage.


The open plan living room and kitchen is the real showpiece of this building. With towering, cathedral ceilings letting in gorgeous light at any time of the day and carefully selected items of furniture, both vintage and modern, all selected to ensure the highest level of comfort and enjoyment. Our pantry is stocked with provisions including tea, coffee, sugar, salt & pepper, balsamic vinegar and olive oil.


In the warmer months, throw open the French doors from the living room and sit outside in your picturesque courtyard garden. You can choose from comfortable seating in the sun with a glass of local wine (or a cheeky g&t from one of the local gin distilleries) or to dine at the spacious outdoor setting after cooking dinner on the bbq provided.

In the cooler months, light a fire and cosy up with one of the throws you will find in your accommodation!
