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....

A real home away from home! We felt relaxed as soon as we drove in. Stunning gardens and scenery to look at and the house is just so warm and homely and full of country charm. We’ve never felt so ‘at home’ while we’re away. They’ve thought of absolutely everything. With two young children we had great adventures on the property, from swinging under the tree to spotting rabbits and having meals in our very own outdoor cafe. Our 4 year old loved the cubby house. Thank you so much. Wonderful stay!

"Beautiful cottage in Perfect Surroundings" Robin and Gary’s beautiful cottage and fully equipped house was well above expectations. The homely wood fire and the country settings with manicured gardens was amazing. Our time was too short and we will definitely be coming back for a longer stay. Thank you to Robin and Gary for their hospitality and having the fire well stoked even on our very late arrival.

"Exceptional service" Robin and Garry went out of their way to accommodate us and our extra guests. House had everything we needed including breakfast supplies, Pity we didn’t have more time to enjoy the lovely surrounds. Thank you for going the extra mile and we appreciated all the little extras.

"Simply wonderful" This is our all time favourite holiday setting. We bring our grandsons here to create memories and Barrenjoey never fails to deliver in every aspect. Beds are very comfortable with beautiful linen, kitchen has everything your heart desires and the fire in winter is a winner!! Do as much or as little as you choose....... Barrenjoey will steal your heart as it has stolen ours.
