The Cob Barn – Mountain Forest Retreat Details 


The Cob Barn is an enchanting forest retreat set on the northern slopes of Mt Arthur high above the village of Lilydale.
Nestled on the edge of a lake with a rainforest backdrop, and adjacent to our peony farm, this secluded setting is an ideal place to unwind.
When you arrive, the key will be in the door and the fire set. Make yourselves at home.....all that's left to do is enjoy !

The space
The building is a unique hand shaped structure made from cob, a mixture of clay, sand and straw with interior lime rendered walls. Once an old timber barn, it has been beautifully renovated to provide luxurious self contained accommodation.
Through the french doors you can view the lake that is visited by wild ducks and sometimes platypus. There is a small rowboat on the lake for your enjoyment. Or relax round the fire pit at night under a starry heaven.

Guest access
There is an easy walking track through the temperate rainforest behind The Cob Barn. You can walk beneath giant manferns, Blackwoods, Sassafras, Mountain Ash, Dogwood and Musk. The track follows a circular path up the slope beside a mountain stream, then back down to The Cob Barn through changing forest glades.
Inside the Cob Barn guests can enjoy the warmth of a delightful wood fire and can relax with a selection of DVDs, books, games and music.
The kitchen is well equipped for meal preparation, with hot plates, oven and an espresso coffee machine.
Outside, there is a BBQ and a fire pit on the deck overlooking the lake.
The Cob Barn is just a stones throw from Misty Mountain Peonies our small specialist cut flower farm and plant might like to take a stroll through the peony patch and see how things are growing.....our flowering season varies from year to year, starting around mid November through to late December.

Interaction with guests
The Cob Barn is your private space to enjoy. We respect your privacy and will leave you in peace. But please feel free to text or phone us if you need any assistance. Our phone number is listed in our Guest Information Book.
