Bring your family to experience time in the country in the luxury of our renovated barn.  

Reconnect with nature on our beautiful 25 acre property in Silvan.

Our barn is an open plan space, with a bed room on a mezzanine, separated from the living space by a curtain if you prefer.  We have a queen bed and a double bunkbed. There is a sofa down stairs that can become a single bed if required.

We uses beautiful organic cotton bed linen and towels, washed with earth-friendly products.

Total sleeping capacity is 7 though it is a small space for this many.

There is also the option to book our converted bus or one or more of our camping sites if you want to bring more friends.

There is a small but we’ll equiped kitchen, and a gas cooking stove outside for you to enjoy.

Good wifi and an Apple TV as well as a DVD player with a great collection of dvds.

Plenty of board games and books. 

There is a wood burning coonara and ample wood to collect around the property. In addition there is an electric wall heater in the bedroom.

The barn is located on our farm, close to our house, and we love sharing our slice of paradise with like-minded souls.  We care deeply for our animals and interacting with these human-loving 4 legged friends can be a part of your stay.  Very likely you will be woken by the grunting of our free range pigs!

If you prefer complete privacy we will say hello then leave you in peace, at hand if you need anything.

We are aiming to become as self sufficient as we can, and to regenerate all areas that are currently weeds with native bush land. We ask you to respect our land. Please use our eco friendly bathroom and kitchen products as ultimately chemicals will end up back in the waterways. 

Ferndale farm has open paddocks, majestic gums, birds galore and a small creek running through.  Our property is an animal sanctuary. We do what we can to provide a home for beautiful creatures that may not otherwise have had the life that we think they deserve. 

Dogs are welcome on leash, they will meet our free ranging pigs and chooks so need to be ok with this.

There is even room to bring your horse and use our arena if you arrange in advance.

Time with our ponies can be arranged, either to ride or to spend time grooming and loving them. They love time with humans. We charge $20 for a pony session.

We are in a wonderful position of being at the gateway of wine country.  Less than 10 minutes drive from the the first estates. We are also 10 minutes drive from the Dandenong Ranges, with all of its stunning bush walking and gardens, and 10 minutes drive from the Warburton Trail - a fantastic place to run, ride and cycle - very safe for bike riding with children with unusual cafes along the way. You can hire our bikes.

Come and immerse yourself in the experience of Ferndale Farm.

The converted barn at Harriet and Shauns Farm is fantastic, everything you need for a great family stay. The kids loved being able to get up close to the farm animals each day, and especially loved the horse riding. Quiet location, great communication from the hosts. Well designed barn with all the comforts you need. Less than an hour from Melbourne it's the perfect weekend escape for adults and kids! Highly recommend.
