In the heart of the Barossa Valley, near Adelaide, South Australia, this farm stay is a peaceful rural retreat surrounded by gum and palm trees and with lovely views over the famous Seppeltsfield Winery.
The accommodation is in the form of 6 self catering cottages, all with air-conditioning and all modern facilities; private bathroom with spa bath, flat screen TV and DVD player, a cosy fireplace and a kitchenette, including fridge, toaster and microwave etc. Check them out on the booking page here.
Outside there are barbecue facilities and a fire pit where in the evenings many guests get together and organize a camp fire. And there’s a nice playground for the kids too.
On their small 8 acre farm surrounded by gum trees and vineyards, you’ll find sheep, ponies and alpacas, all of which are friendly and are used to meeting visitors, both children and adults.
The accommodation is self catering but your friendly hosts also provide you with some nice complementary breakfast hampers.
The Barossa valley north of Adelaide has been a famous wine producing region for generations now and just a ten minute walk away from the farm you’ll find one of its most famous wineries; Seppeltsfield, which was established way back in 1851 by the Seppelts family, recent immigrants from what was once the German speaking region of Silesia in Central Europe. Here you can arrange a whole range of wine tourism activities as well as enjoying some of the best food around at the on site restaurant.
It’s also a short walk to the Seppelts Family Mausoleum, a serene memorial spot to the famous pioneer family which has suitably lovely views back over the valley.
For a day out at another local winery you can also visit the nearby Hently Farm & Park, which does some award winning wines plus equally top class food.
A little farther afield, just around a ten minute drive in fact, you can reach the town of Tanunda which has a lot going on, quality cafes and restaurants, art galleries and plenty of shops.
Other recommendations in the area would include the Barossa Farmers Market at Vintners Sheds where you can fill up with some of the best local home made produce the Barossa can offer, much of it organic.
And not forgetting Maggie Beer’s Farm Shop on Pheasant Farm Road where you can also buy some more of the best home made produce around all made at Maggie’s kitchens in the centre of Tanunda. you can also join some demonstrations in how to make verjuice; a green, sour but surprisingly very nice alternative to lemon juice made from unripened grapes.
Maggie’s were the first firm to produce it commercially and the demonstrations are at 2pm every day. Individuals can just turn up though large groups are advised to call ahead to see if there’s space
All the above places are reachable by bike also and you can arrange bike rental at the farm stay.
