The Hermitage – Kingsford Homestead, Barossa Valley, South Australia

The most common use of cork is not in furniture or homewares but of course as stoppers in wine bottles. So with this in mind for todays hermitage we travel to the beautiful Barossa Valley in South Australia. The Barossa is home to many of Australias most respected wineries and is known worldwide for its quality produce.

Nestled on 225-acres on the North Para River is the Kingsford Homestead. Built  in 1856 as the home of a wealthy nineteenth-century pastoralist, the most recent owners have recently renovated and opened this beautiful historic building to the general public as a luxury country retreat. It caters for an intimate group of 14 guests at a time so you get the genuine peaceful country experience.

The recent renovation is a tasteful mix of country elegance that compliments the historic features of the building. One extra special, and rather unique, touch is the outdoor bush bath which is found in a secluded corner of the property and is the perfect location to soak up the surrounding Australian scenery! Your all-inclusive stay here will see you enjoy country breakfasts, canapes and drinks at sunset and a seasonal menu designed by chef Stuart Oldfield complemented with some gorgeous Barossa Wines!

And if your thinking, “Gee, this place looks kind of familiar?” then you would be right. The Kingsford Homestead and grounds were previously the film set of the famous Australian TV show McLeod’s Daughters!
