Accommodation To Open In Barossa

Kingsford Homestead

Kingsford Homestead

South Australia’s Barossa is buzzing with news of a new luxury property due to open on 1st July following a major refurbishment programme. Kingsford Homestead is a seven-suite property set on the banks of the North Para River in 225 hectares of rolling farmland less than 50kms from Adelaide.

Dating back to 1856, Kingsford Homestead was built from Scottish sandstone transported to Australia as ship ballast. Today, at the helm of this exciting new property are Pat and Sally Kent who previously managed both Arkaba Homestead in the Flinders Ranges and Portee Station in the Riverland. Their passion and enthusiasm for hospitality and South Australia is obvious to everyone who has met them and today they can’t wait to welcome visitors to this wonderful historic home.

This is a property used to being in the spotlight and is no stranger to dramatic situations – Kingsford Homestead initially came to the fore in a popular Australian television series called McLeod’s Daughters which was screened in Australia and around the globe for about eight years.

In this, its latest starring role, the revamped Kingsford Homestead is due to welcome guests for a minimum two-night stay with dinner, bed and breakfast (Picnic hampers available on request) and all beer, wine and soft drinks included. Facilities will include being able to dine in the converted underground cellar, a spa room and an all-weather pool house to be completed as stage 2 of the project and a commercial kitchen in which renowned Barossa caterers will whip up an array of culinary delights for overnight guests. Culinary partners are Angaston based gourmet catering company Hand Made – featuring owner and renowned Barossa Chef Stuart Oldfield. The partnership will be known as Hand Made for Kingsford Homestead

A number of additional experiences are expected to be made available, such as private picnics on the banks of the North Para River which runs through the property, learning how to work with sheep dogs, Barossa winemaker events, family friendly short breaks and themed McLeod’s Daughters weekends.

Meanwhile, the property’s secluded location affords a 360 degree view of the surrounding hills which, combined with the contemporary French country interior design, are sure to make for a stunningly relaxing environment for guests.

Owned by Stefan and Leanne Ahrens, a third generation Barossa family, the property’s opening is seen as an exciting development for South Australia.
