The Barracks, Tocal
Situated on one of Australia's oldest colonial working farms, The Barracks provides boutique accommodation on a unique heritage site.
Four suites have been beautifully restored to provide elegant comforts in the same space where convicts and farmhands worked and toiled over 150 years ago. Each suite allows guests to enjoy the same views of sweeping hillsides and colonial buildings in air conditioned comfort. For those cool evenings, at the push of a button, a restored fireplace is available to warm the sitting room.
The sitting room, kitchenette and bathroom are downstairs while upstairs are the sleeping quarters. Queen sized beds are in three of the suites with one suite providing two king sized single beds.
Tea and coffee making facilities are available in each little kitchenette with a Nespresso machine, kettle, toaster and a bar fridge provided.
A breakfast hamper is complimentary and delivered to your suite each morning of your stay.
If the view from the room isn't enough, enjoy a cup of tea outside on the verandah while watching the farm animals graze nearby.
While each suite has the same floor plans (Hazell and Waggoner suites having additional windows as at the ends of The Barracks building) they have all been furnished differently.
The Hazell suite is the preferred bridal suite. With a beautiful chaise upstairs for the bride to relax in and a majestic restored 150 year old mirror, this suite has ample natural light for pre wedding preparations. Well positioned coat hooks have also been provided in the bedroom for the bride's dress.
The Hover suite is well suited for traveling companions or partners who prefer their own beds with two king single sized beds upstairs.
On the western end of The Barracks, the Smith suite is a beautifully furnished suite with queen bed upstairs.
On the western end of The Barracks, the Waggoner suite is a beautifully furnished suite with queen bed upstairs. It provides spectacular views and sunsets.
