Away at Berry

The kids and I were lucky enough to spend the last few days at my friends' house down in Berry. The property is called "Away" and it truly is a beautiful get-away.  It is usually rented out (see here if you are interested) but there was a last minute vacancy so we all headed down.

I thought I'd share some photos of the house and the lovely town which is only 2 hours from Sydney so it's a perfect drive.

The house is up in the hinterland of Berry overlooking Kangaroo Valley.   It has 4 double bedrooms, 2 and a half bathrooms and a massive kitchen/ dining/ living space as well as a huge deck. It's a great house to go with another family or several friends as the bedrooms are in 2 separate wings of the house so there is a lot of privacy.

an old photo below as the garden is a lot more lush now.

The best equipped kitchen in any rental holiday house. Cassiano is a brilliant cook so we ate very well. My daughter loved preparing dinner with him.

The town of Berry is beautiful.
It's full of lovely shops, houses and cafes.

Berry boasts fantastic homewares shopping.
I bought some lovely lanterns and a divine fleur de lis dinner set at Haven & Space. I'll share them soon.

I loved the bunting and red walls of this shop.

So thanks, Ross and Cassiano, for a wonderful time away.


  1. What fun. Love shopping in old country towns. I passed through there last May and bought some ab fab stuff.

    The home looks lovely too.

  2. Oh wow, love those shops, the red one is my favourite too :)

  3. Oh I love Berry. Haven't been for years. Thanks for the photos.

  4. You lucky girl Fiona, I would love to visit the Blue Mountains one day. The house and the scenery look amazing. The kids and I are heading up north for a few days away so let me know when your Gold Coast bound. Sandy x
