Vineyard & Retreat - 100 acres of pure bliss
We are husband and wife team Wayne & Lisa who own Farmer Smith Estate (our surname!). Nina the Australian Bulldog shares our lives on the property.
Lisa purchased this Guest House in 2017
Why Lisa chose Redesdale
Having a vision from a very young age to own land, we stumbled across this piece of heaven with 100 acres, farm animals, a beautiful home and two pet friendly (one dog only - T&C's apply) accommodation retreats - it was meant to be!
What makes this Guest House unique
The views, the retreats, the animals, the vineyard and the large expanse of land all combined - what's not to love about this place! Stunning from every angle. The two retreats - Sunrise faces the stunning vineyard and Sunset looks out to the rolling hills - perfect for guests wanting a unique and quiet getaway!

- Dog's must be on a lead when walking through the vineyard/property as we have cattle, sheep and alpaca's on the property as well as a pet dog and cat.
- There are two beds in each of the one bedroom retreats. Please note there are no cots provided for babies. The bathrooms are off the bedrooms.
"Sunset" lived up to all of our expectations.
Experienced an incredible thunderstorm whilst we were there which was was wonderful to watch from our vantage point but it did knock out the power.
No problems!! - Hosts Lisa and Wayne provided a portable generator quickly and life went on.
Excellent visit overall.
Hi Steve, thank you for your kind words. So glad you enjoyed your stay. One of the most 'spectacular' nights we've ever had I believe! An amazing vantage point for views in 'Sunset' Retreat! So lovely to have met you both and we look forward to welcoming you again.
Really well thought out place with amazing views. We look forward to visiting again. Highly recommended.
Thanks, Jo and Doug
Stunning views & accommodation!
We had a lovely stay- from the spacious house to the welcome basket, everything was thoughtfully done. Excellent value for money. 5 star property.
Thank you Maraya, it was lovely to have had you stay. Welcome back anytime!
When you need to get away and not have to worry about anything
The quality of this property is amazing, with every possible amenity (aside perhaps wifi) thought of. The hosts had excellent communication, and were always a text/phone call away. Couldn’t recommend highly enough.m
Thank you Nicholas for your lovely review. We were so pleased to have you as our guests and would love to see you both again.
