About the property

Experience the true heart of the Adelaide Hills at beautiful Barrenjoey Hideaway.

Our charming property encompasses the perfect mix of privacy and seclusion for a quiet, restful getaway, while being adjacent to Adelaide Hills wineries and towns and their many attractions.

Barrenjoey offers a fabulous farm stay escape for up to 6 adults and 3 children. Set mid-way between Gumeracha and Birdwood on picturesque Winton Road, it provides a unique blend of the old and the new.

Comprising the original 1800's stone cottage which has been restored and the larger adjoining house built in the 1980's. The house and cottage are not rented out separately and together they offer spacious, relaxing accommodation.

Barrenjoey is also an active AgroForestry concern and is surrounded by beautiful orchards, vineyards and livestock farms.

Our 2016 summer herb and veggie garden is finally established and under way - a wonderful opportunity to pick your own herbs to enjoy whilst at Barrenjoey.

This unique and inspiring farm is a perfect escape for anyone wishing to have peace, privacy and seclusion, while being within easy reach of Adelaide Hills towns and wineries. It caters for couples, families and small groups. And with 42 beautiful acres for guests to explore including 3 dams, quaint gardens and 20 acres of planted gums, there is something here for everyone....

Fantastic Hideaway perfectly presented!

  • 5 of 5

Barrenjoey was a highlight accommodation venue for us. We travel extensively and use Stayz and other services a lot, and our experiences have been varied. Barrenjoey Hideaway was an utter joy. Totally provided everything it advertised along with all the features we questioned prior to arriving - everything presented as promised. An utter joy and delight to stay in such wonderful, quiet, beautiful surroundings to help us really unwind whilst working - a true working holiday. The kitchen was exceptionally well supplied, the nights dark and quiet, the grounds stunning, the veggie patch a welcome addition to the kitchen prep. Secluded enough but not too far away from services. Owners were approachable, friendly and extremely happy to accommodate us and our needs - nothing was too much trouble. We were a small group of 4 for part of the time, and the accommodation was perfect for the 4 of us, and also the 2 of us - either way it was perfect. Highly recommended if looking for a very comfortable retreat. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you Robyn ! We'll be back as situations allow ! Lindel & Cameron

Relaxing break.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, spacious property, set in stunning gardens with native birds, wild rabbits and on our last morning we spotted a kangaroo. The kitchen is well equipped with every item you would need, and the our bed was super comfortable, lovely touches in bathroom, toiletries and big soft bath towels.

We had a short but relaxing stay and hope to go back in the near future, thanks Robin.
