For any artisan food lover visiting the Barossa, the idea of spending the night at Maggie Beer’s place is surely one to put at the top of a Valley itinerary.

Surrounded by the very same Heritage Orchard that Maggie has nurtured back to life for her range of gourmet products, and only a literal hop, skip and a jump through the pear trees to her famous Farm Shop, the “Orchard House” offers an experience hand picked by Maggie to ensure you’ll feel like a local the moment you walk through the beautiful old farmhouse door.

Orchard House offers 2 bedroom accommodation, each room with its own bathroom, and comfortably sleeps up to 4 adults. With a beautifully light and spacious kitchen, fully equipped with Maggie’s choice of Miele appliances, the house goes beyond the expected bed and breakfast option for foodies wanting to cook up a storm of local produce during their stay.

Guests can feel free to cook outside in the purpose built barbecue area overlooking the orchard, choose fresh herbs from the kitchen garden and wander through the fruit trees to pick fresh pears, apples and apricots when the season allows.

“The Heritage Orchard is very dear to me, holding equal measures of sentimental value and the chance to preserve an all but lost tradition of fruit growing, beyond grapes, in the Valley. And by rebuilding the original farm house, we’re able to continue another tradition dear to me; old fashioned country hospitality, such a welcome escape from the busy-ness of day to day life. There is something completely tangible but difficult to capture in words about being surrounded by the rhythm of the seasons, drawing inspiration for cooking by the food you can see outside your window, and the feeling of being nurtured that slowing life down brings - every reason for us to create Orchard House for you to enjoy.”
