The saying is true: the grass is greener on the other side, especially as you cross the paddock and unlatch the galvanised farm gate at The Dairyman’s Cottage entrance. This is Barossa country chic at its finest with a clean style that is as comfortable as it is design savvy.
This reinvented getaway dates back to the 1840s. Stretch out in the Chaff House, a workshop where grain was once crushed, or hole up in the Dairyman’s Cottage for a stay that shares a similarly unique past, operating more recently to milk cows. Both pads now make up a relaxed and unpretentious Barossa getaway and can be booked in conjunction with one another or as separate retreats.
Guests can quite literally wake up and smell the bacon, thanks to a healthy spread of breakfast provisions and other fresh produce that come directly from paddock to plate. And although your Barossa itinerary is likely to be teeming with sojourns to cellar doors and eateries, it's hard to overlook the peace that lazing in the shade of the South Australian sun brings. Take in the rich pastures and surrounding panoramas of the grape-dotted Barossa Valley Ranges, by spending the evenings on the paved terrace with your feet up, sipping a glass of something smooth from neighbouring vineyards.
It's instinctual to wander the working dairy facility, so why not introduce yourself to the residents on an afternoon farm walk and feed the heritage breed free-range pigs. And if there are any items you can no longer live without when back home, The Dairyman has an online shop to keep you stocked up on breakfast packs and more.
