About the property

Redwing Shearer's Quarters / Farmstay is an 1860's shearers residence which has been fully restored. Situated on a working farm only ten minutes from Moonta on The Copper Coast, Redwing Shearer's Quarters is the perfect place to bring the family for some fun, fresh air and relaxation!

Redwing Shearer's Quarters is a two bedroom shearers residence which has been fully renovated to ooze character, but still has all the modern conveniences, including flat screen TV/DVD, two person spa, reverse cycle air conditioning, combustion fireplace, laundry, barbecue and much more. The first bedroom is a queen size, while the second can be either 2 singles, or a king bed. There is a single foldout bed available for hire and also a portacot.

Full cooked and continental breakfast provisions can be arranged at a cost of $25 per couple per day. The pantry is stocked with everything you need, even including marshmallows for your hot chocolate!

As well as a gorgeous front rose garden, there is a very spacious, fully fenced backyard with lawned area and unique pergola made from a farm silo! Perfect to relax in while the kids run around and feed the animals who are happily hanging over the fence!

You can spend your time relaxing at Redwing, strolling the farm or feeding the animals. Otherwise why not head to the Copper Coast, or even do a daytrip to Innes National Park.

Redwing Shearer's Quarters has everything you need for the perfect family getaway!

If we're booked, you can also check out our Redwing Barn, which is also listed on Stayz!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an idyllic, relaxing venue. Ideally situated for exploring the Yorke Peninsula. We've been walking the 'Walk the Yorke' path. The cottage is beautifully designed and finished and is truly a 'home away from home'.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Redwing - very comfortable, very relaxing, lots of little extra luxuries provided that made it more enjoyable. Loads of space and gorgeous decor, loved the animals too!

Very disappointed....

  • 2 of 5

We had a 2 day booking at Redwing and cut our stay to just one night due to the poor standard of facilities. The temperature inside the cottage was baking hot even with the fairly useless airconditioning on! The main bedroom had no cooling whatsoever and we had to sleep in the twin bedroom, where the beds were like slabs of granite, and were strangely loaded up with quilts and electric blankets.

The floors and walls were covered in bugs and the bathroom was fairly dusty and dirty. All in all a pretty awful experience, with pretty poor excuses from the owner who wasn’t willing to listen to any feedback. Would not recommend!

Owner's Response: Hi Julia, Thank you for your feedback. We have included below the information sent to you after your stay, which we believe also addresses the points in your comments above. The air conditioning units in the cottage were installed 18 months ago. These units were recommended for the Shearers Quarters - given the power supply restrictions we have on a rural property - and we have had no other negative feedback about this from hundreds of guests in that time. As we can not have units in all rooms we list on our website what facilities each room has. You can see this at We leave air conditioning (or heating) on for guests a number of hours prior to their arrival, as our guests usually really appreciate this thought and we like to make them as comfortable as possible on their arrival. We turn on both units and fans to circulate this through the building as some rooms do not have units. We had checked the temperature of the Shearers Quarters before your arrival and found it to be quite pleasant - definitely nicer than our own house in such a heatwave! We believe good mattresses are very important in accommodation, hence why all the mattresses at Redwing are custom made, pillow top mattresses, sent over from Melbourne. They are 18 months old. We have numerous comments in our guest books about the excellent quality of sleep people have had during their stay due to these mattresses. We like to keep Redwing looking lovely, hence the designer quilts and cushions on the beds, we're sorry this wasn't to your taste. The properties are cleaned to a high standard within 24hrs of guests arrival, so we are unsure how the walls and floors could have been covered in bugs, especially as no windows were open and there aren't many insects around in a heatwave, so this is a concern we haven't come across before. Once again, it is a shame that your stay coincided with a 45 degree heat wave, however we have no control over the weather. Kind Regards Nicola & Damien

Great family farmstay

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit. The property was a lovely mix of country and eclectic styling, was clean, had all the facilities you need and was comfortable. Highly recommended for parents with young children, as the property has a number of animals which are pets that the children can visit and feed. Moonta approx. 15 min drive.

Can't wait to stay again!

  • 5 of 5

Redwing is a brilliant place for a stay of any length. The owners have thought of absolutely everything and made the stay an absolute dream. Our kids loved the animals and looked forward to feeding them everyday. The Shearer's Quarters was impeccably clean and spacious. We will be back at the first chance.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay in our newly renovated Shearer's Quarters Dave! And thank the kids for the letter too - always interesting to hear who our cat has been visiting - she seems to be a regular with the guests now! See you all again soon :)

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Wasn't entirely sure what to expect but it ended up being a very quaint cottage with all needs met. The building had been nicely renovated inside. There were plenty of animals around neatly kept who were friendly and happy for a feed. 15 minutes drive to Moonta and the beach wasn't too bad. Overall we had a good relaxing stay as a young couple.
