Situated within the incredible Smith's white sand beach situated only a few minutes away while central to all amenities Margaret River is offering.
The name of the Barn Hives (Eco Pods) comes from Barnyard Bees farm, their bee’s hives spread around the property. When they think of a hive, they simply think of a natural piece of construction. But adding a little touch of the modern, they get a mix of new and old, with a link between nature, landscape and ecological sustainability. It’s a reference to the conservation tourism concept which Barnyard Farm is all about.
Barn Hives were constructed with maximum care for the environment.
Guided by nature, evolved with aesthetic passion, and fortified by an all-encompassing sustainable philosophy, it is a masterpiece of forward-thinking flair.
The industrial contemporary design architecture of Barn Hives is inspired to be bold, optimistic, and distinctly of this place while at the same time materials and colours were chosen to make it blend naturally into the landscape. The shape of the pods provides a wonderful top view of the vineyard surroundings, giving guests even closer experience of living in the hive proximity with nature.
Special attention has been paid to sunlight and cross-ventilation to achieve comfort without the use of harsh mechanical implements. Water is collected from rainfall and heated by solar panels making it self-sustainable. With a pallet fire heater during the chilly winter days and fans for summer.
Barn Hives aims to prove that hospitality and environmental conservation can coexist to create a unique and positive experience.
Create more, consume less; embrace every opportunity to learn and improve; be innovative and committed; inspire others to positive change; and always look to nature, a richness of experience without over-consumption– that is their philosophy.
Barn Hives was designed for adults, whether they be couples, friends, siblings, mother and daughter or just travelling solo, so it’s rare to bump into a guest who is under 18. Their team will always be happy to discuss any exceptions!
