A tranquil country escape just 45 minutes from Adelaide, the newly renovated farmstay accommodation is set in the McLaren Vale wine district in a vineyard. It is 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.

This beautifully presented shearing shed has all the country charm we were looking for, and all the modern conveniences that made our stay more enjoyable. Sitting out on the deck with a glass of red, listening to the kookaburras, with the creek bubbling away in the background is a pretty perfect way to relax. There are a number of wineries close by and it's just a short drive to Mclaren Vale with it abundance of places to eat. We will definitely be back for another visit.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Shearing Shed. The fireplace is a lovely touch in winter time and a great way to relax. The surrounding area is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed a walk through the paddocks and around the vineyard. Libby had some great restaurant and cellar door recommendations which was a big help when trying to decide where to go when there are just so many options in the area. All in all, a beautiful spot, very clean and well looked after accommodation with fantastic hosts. Highly recommended :) Thank you for having us!

Absolutely gorgeous warm, comfortable and cosy studio surrounded by grape vines and fruit orchard. Libby has thought of everything...even a welcoming bottle of their own label wine. Beautiful! Kitchen very well equipped, really comfy bed and great shower. Perfect location for exploring all the wonderful wineries on offer in the Mclaren Vale.

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 are pleased to be able to host guests in our converted shearing shed on our vineyard property in the McLaren Vale wine region.

When we travel, we like to explore our travel destinations by bike and on foot as well as via local transport. We like to cook food with ingredients from local markets. We also seek out local music concerts and theatre productions.
