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 (self catering), 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.
