The Barn Woodend

  • The Barn - Tia Alysse Art

Just up the road from the centre of Woodend, tucked behind a white picket fence you’ll find The Barn Woodend – a darling, spacious, light-filled barn with soaring cathedral ceilings and French doors leading to a sunny private courtyard. Believed to be dating back to the mid 20th century, The Barn has been lovingly renovated to include everything you need for a relaxing mini break at the base of Mount Macedon, the perfect base for exploring all the region has to offer.

What we love about The Barn, Woodend: Opposite the toasty wood heater in the open plan lounge room, above the comfy, loungy, couches, the central wall of The Barn features some stunning art by one of my favourite local artists – Tia Alysse. You can book in to do a painting class with Tia which she runs from her Malmsbury studio on weekends – just a 20 minute drive from The Barn.
