Description

Experience the Australian countryside in a converted shearing shed with all modern comforts just 45 minutes from Adelaide. It is in a secluded spot in the McLaren Vale wine region on a 90-acre property. Your hosts are local wine makers who live across an orchard paddock 200 meters away.

Enter your accommodation through the traditional shearing shed to arrive at a cosy and romantic dwelling that has fantastic vineyard views. The Shearing Shed was recently renovated to a very high standard, and although rustic in appearance, it has a stylish modern interior, with all of the modern conveniences that you would expect from a boutique country escape; a queen size bed, great shower and a fully equipped kitchen, reverse cycle air conditioning, wi-fi and a deck that overlooks a small creek.

The period galvanised shed has an inviting South East facing deck where you can sit, relax and enjoy the fresh country air. It is the perfect setting to cook a BBQ and dine together, either with friends or alone, while enjoying some of the region’s wine.

Weather permitting in wintertime, there is a camp fire in the paddock to enjoy outdoor cooking. If it is too cold outside then why not sit indoors by the combustion wood fired stove with a good book enjoying the view from large picture windows?

Explore the surrounding cellar doors, vineyards, local beaches and great restaurants.

The Shearing Shed is located only 10 minutes from McLaren Vale township, which caters for all shopping needs, and 15 minutes drive from Willunga with its numerous cafes, restaurants and historical sites as well as the famous Saturday morning Willunga Farmers’ Market.

A 20 minute drive will take you to fantastic beaches such as Maslins, Port Willunga and Aldinga where you can fish, swim and take beach walks.

There are a number of bushwalking tracks in the area and the Shiraz Trail is a biking track that runs between McLaren Vale and Willunga.

We also invite you to just relax and take walks around the 90 acre property with its pretty vineyard and spectacular hillside views and to help yourself to produce from the orchard, chook pen and vegetable garden when in season.

For the keen golfer there is a tranquil golf course at Willunga.

The Shearing Shed is a great place to stay if attending weddings, anniversaries or other events in the area. It is also a great location for an artist’s retreat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect getaway! We stayed here for a much needed break. The cottage was warm and cosy with enough basic provisions for a couple of nights of cooking in! We will be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing little property We absolutely loved our weekend at the Sandalwood Shearing Shed. The place is small, but perfectly set up and we loved the entrance in it's original state. The best part was how well stocked the kitchen was. All the equipment we needed for cooking, plus oils, vinegar, salt & pepper etc. It made it so much easier and saved us buying it all. And a lovely bottle of wine. We also enjoyed picking a few items from the veggie patch to have with dinner. Thank you!
