A tranquil country escape just 45 minutes from Adelaide, the beautifully renovated farmstay accommodation is set in the McLaren Vale wine district in a vineyard. We welcome you to the ideal location to explore the region and to relax on the property.

The space
Experience the Australian countryside in a converted shearing shed with all modern comforts just 45 minutes from Adelaide set in a secluded spot in the McLaren Vale wine region on a 90-acre property. We are local wine makers who live across an orchard paddock 200 meters away.

Enter your accommodation through the traditional shearing shed to arrive at a cosy and romantic dwelling that has fantastic vineyard views and stylish interiors. Comfortable queen size bed, great shower and a fully equipped kitchen, reverse cycle air conditioning, wi-fi and a deck that overlooks a small winter creek.

Explore the surrounding cellar doors, vineyards, local beaches and great restaurants. This is a wonderful place to just relax and take walks around the property, help yourself to produce from the orchard, chook pen and vegetable garden (when in season). Two bikes and helmets are available on request so you can explore the area.

Curl up with a good book by the wood fire in winter and eat on the spacious deck in summer.

The shearing shed space can also be used for artist retreats.

The Shearing Shed was recently renovated to a very high standard, and although rustic in appearance, it has a beautiful interior, with all of the modern conveniences that you would expect from a boutique country escape. The period galvanised shed has an inviting South East facing deck where you can sit, relax and enjoy the fresh country air. It is the perfect setting to cook a BBQ and dine together, either with friends or alone, while enjoying some of the region's wine. Weather permitting in wintertime, there is a camp-fire in the paddock to enjoy outdoor cooking. If it is too cold outside then why not sit indoors by the combustion wood fired stove enjoying the view from large picture windows?

The Shearing Shed is a great place to stay if attending weddings, anniversaries or other events in the area. We will also be more than happy to provide you with recommendations and advice about the region.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask!!

We are from an Australian wine region and we like exploring the food, wine, arts and gardens of the places we visit. I am a retired arts administrator and my husband owns and manages a family winery.

We also seek out local music concerts and theatre productions.
