Fancy staying in a Sheep Shed? Black Sheep Inn, Orange (NSW), Australia

September 26, 2009

Fancy staying in a sheep shearing shed down under? A former shed that is, not a functioning one replete with fluffy woolen balls strewn about. Black Sheep Inn sits in a former shed in New South Wales, converted into an chic inn with eco-credentials. Celebrating Australia’s wool industry heritage in with style.

Experience rural history in contemporary comfort. Kyalla Park’s original shearing shed has been sympathetically transformed into modern and stylish accommodation. It’s kept wonderfully warm in Winter by the open fireplace.

The key elements of the building have been painstakingly conserved, such as the timbers hand-cut from the property, the galvanized iron, the flooring and sheep chutes, the wool table, the red Sunbeam shearing machines, the wool baskets and the huge Koerstz wool press. But the accommodation facilities of Black Sheep Inn provide a distinctive twenty-first century pizzazz and a unique rural experience.

The two communal areas have a sleek, spacious, rural feel.

Breakfast can be a lingering affair at the glass-topped, restored wool sorting table in the main dining and lounge area.

We delight in serving you with a celebration of local, fresh and seasonal produce.

During Monday-Thursday, we provide a yummy and filling continental breakfast, while on the weekends we serve delicious three-course cooked breakfast.

A separate lounge area, warmed by a huge old Coalbrookdale wood-fired stove, is an ideal place to read, play games or just relax.

Enjoy the peaceful views to the east over Kyalla Park and the Molong Creek valley.

The five guest bedrooms, each with an ensuite, are more than just a place to sleep.

They have a sense of tranquility created by light, soft colours and peaceful views. Each has reverse-cycle heating and cooling, and queen beds with welcoming Australian mohair blankets and electric blankets.

Two rooms have an additional single bed.

Each bedroom has an ensuite in keeping with the shearing shed theme. We provide towels, L’Occitane toiletries and hair-dryer.

Black Sheep Inn has an intriguing mix of old and new.

It provides an inspirational and stylish space for guests to connect with each other and the unique qualities of the building.

Its down-to-earth charm, serene countryside, big skies and friendly rural people will touch your heart and restore your soul.
