Whistler Farm is the perfect place to base yourself for an enjoyable stay in the Barossa. The hosts, Jayne and Chris, are very friendly and generous. Upon arrival we had a cheese and meat platter, and the option to choose a wine from the cellar. The 08 GSM was perfect. Jayne also volunteered to drive us to dinner and pick us up - a very gracious offer that we appreciated and accepted.. The farm is a relaxing place to stay, with 42 acres to explore and feed the animals. The BBQ, daily breakfast provisions and access to their veggie/herb garden mean you can settle in for a quiet meal at home when the mood takes you. All in all, Whistler Farm is highly recommended. We will return!

Steve and Anne it was great hearing about your trip around the Barossa with Jonathon Milne from Barossa Food and Wine Tours - we are booking in with another couple so we can tell others about it - can't wait. Look forward to seeing you again.

Our first visit to the Barossa and we couldn't have chosen a better experience than staying with Jayne and Chris at their B & B. The room was spotlessly clean, well appointed and peaceful. We had an opportunity to savour a glass of Whistler wine with our hosts, who shared their considerable knowledge of the area with us. We dined at "Appelation" on Jayne's advice and it was outstanding. Not to mention Jayne's offer to drive us to and from so we could enjoy wines with our meal. There was a delicious plate of cheese and nibbles for us on arrival, and lovely fresh eggs and supplies for Breakfast. All around this was a memorable and most enjoyable stay. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again if we found ourselves in the Barossa at a future date.

I can only echo what has been said before - the rooms are clean, modern and very comfortable, each with their own little outdoor garden and gas BBQ.
The complimentary cheese platter and bottle of Whistler wine is a lovely welcome touch, and I highly recommend their Riesling.
As people have said, Chris and Jayne are very helpful and friendly (drinks at 6pm, offers to drive to local restaurants, winery advice, booking bikes and even shipping all our purchases back to Sydney for us) but equally will leave you to your own devices if desired.
My only (very minor) gripe would be the showers are a little bit of a temperature gamble!
Thanks very much.

This is a lovely B&B. The room is very comfortable & peaceful and quiet with only the birds to enjoy listening to while enjoying the breakfast fare on offer. It was easy to find but away from the town enough to feel the solitude. I would very much recommend this B&B.

Very nice stay and hosts. The rooms are beautiful and very comfy, the "do-it yourself " breakfast allows a lot of flexibility, the wine is very good (and so is the bring home 1 bottle included in the price) and so are the hosts (who drove us to our restaurant!)

What can I say that has not already been said! This is an excellent location to stay. Friendly hosts who did everything possible to make our stay special. Certainly a highlight of our Australian holiday. Would I recommend Whistler Farm, absolutely without reservation.

Room Tip: Both rooms are excellent.

If you are looking for a special place then this is it! The rooms are modern, comfortable, no very comfortable! You arrive to find a cheese platter in the fridge and an invitation to help yourself to a bottle of Whistler wine! Then your most gracious hosts invite you to a "happy hour" then they gave us an honest appraisal of some local restaurants - drove us there and even picked us up to return us home! Unbelievable! Definitely stay here again!
