Quirky and romantic escape for two

Quirky, original, beautifully styled and decorated with a sumptuously generous flair, this place would not look out of place in Australia’s best country style magazines. Believe it or not, we are describing the inside of a very unusual shed.

The Shearing Shed is a stunning transformation of that classic Aussie icon – the ironclad shed. The outside has been prettied up, of course, with private decks front and back, but from a distance, and surrounded by farmyard corrals and incredibly cute (and hairy) Highland cattle, you would never know that inside is one of the most beautiful French-style country interiors we have seen.

Think a rustic, romantic, elegantly decorated space with clever original features like exposed roof trusses, corrugated iron and timber slat walls that were once the shed floors. Add a cook’s kitchen (complete with pod coffee machine), an inviting lounge area with wood fire, a sumptuous bed and a gorgeous ensuite bathroom (with a romantic claw-foot bath) and what you get is an exquisite retreat just for two. We were entranced the minute we set foot in this property!

Then there’s the location. Set within lovely gardens, and with views down to Westernport Bay and French Island (the sunsets are spectacular), you are never too far from great beaches, fishing, wildlife, the Rail Trail and Phillip Island.
