Kingsford Homestead is an award winning, luxury country retreat - offering a boutique Bed and Breakfast package. We additionally offer an Exclusive Use package - all-inclusive food, wine and accommodation (14 guests).

Located on the edge of the iconic Barossa Valley in South Australia, the picturesque 225 acre property is nestled amongst rolling hills on the banks of the North Para River. Just 45 minutes from Adelaide and yet you feel a million miles away.

Sit under the veranda of the heritage homestead 'circa 1856' and enjoy outstanding wines handmade in the Barossa. Famous wineries such as Peter Lehmann, Yalumba, Rockford, Hentley Farm and Penfolds are a short drive from the property (10-15 minutes). Indulge yourself and experience one of the world's most beautiful award-winning al fresco baths, set in a secluded corner of the property. Take a picnic on the river. Take a balloon flight over the vines. Take your time. Gather beside a roaring fire and raise a ruby Shiraz to a diamond night sky. In summer, plunge into our opulent resort style swimming pool. Kingsford Homestead can accommodate up to fourteen guests in seven luxurious and individually decorated suites. It has been the home to a wealthy nineteenth-century pastoralist. It has been the television home of McLeod's Daughters. And now...it is yours.

Attended a wedding reception last weekend and stayed in the newly established accommodation. The wedding reception is phenomenal. The owner Stefan and his family did their best to ensure a perfect reception. We were also shown the new extensions and additional facilities which will be launched in May. For the existing buildings, it has its charm and elegance. Overall, everyone was impressed with the environ, the staff and the Ahrens family's hospitality.

This beautifully appointed homestead takes you back in time. Surrounded by stunning countryside for long walks and peaceful moments. The very friendly accommodating staff will make your stay memorable and comfortable. Each guest room is 5 Star standard. Comfortable beds. Morning Yoga. Tranquil setting. Highly recommend for a private weekend away or book the entire homestead for 14 guests for a special Occassion as we did! A true romantic get away! We loved it!

My husband & I stayed here on the last night of our SA visit in May. I can tell you that Cassie could not have been more helpful in the lead up, helping me with restaurant recommendations etc & was lovely and efficient to deal with. Then, from the moment we arrived, nothing was too much trouble & both Cassie & Kieran were really lovely, wonderful hosts. Kieran drove us out to the edge of the property for the bush bath experience, which I highly recommend. We stayed in the cottage which was lovely and private & we were lucky enough that they were hosting McLeod's Daughters fans in the house & had arranged catering & so my husband & I also had the platters (which were fantastic) & Cassie & Kieran delivered them right to us. My husband & I have never seen McLeod's Daughters but the place will hold a magical night of memories for our 25th wedding anniversary. Worth every cent! Thanks very much Cassie & Kieran from Scott & Kelly

You have to come to this place. Yes I was a Mcleods Daughter fan but you don't have to be. This is an amazing place with years and years of history. Cassie and Kyran are amazing hosts/managers of Kingsford, their happy and helpful nature make you feel at home. Nothing is trouble for them. I highly recommend this place. Worth the money.

My partner and I enjoyed our stay at Kingsford in March. Kieran and Cassie were superlative hosts who made sure our visit was enjoyable and that we were well-looked after. I do echo a few of the travelers below that it's not an ideal place if you are looking for a full-service property and/or are traveling individually. A taxi to town (20 mins each way) for dinner ran well over $150 AUD and had the fastest meter I've ever seen! Thankfully dinner at Vintner's restaurant was fantastic and worth every penny. Considering the facilities at the property, including a giant kitchen, I agree with the recent manger's comment that Kingsford will work great in an "exclusive use" setup. Nonetheless, it was a pleasure to patronize this charming, old accommodation and to meet the hosts (and dog).
