Welcome to Award Winning Redwing Farm
Our Award Winning Redwing Farm is situated on the beautiful Yorke Peninsula and is only a ten minute drive from all the activities on The Copper Coast. Redwing Farm was settled in the 1850’s and the property was named after a ship which sunk off the coast of Yorke Peninsula. The ships’ life was over; however the property of Redwing Farm was just beginning.
The property was bought by my husband’s family in 1998 and the house was in a state of disrepair at the time. In 2006 we moved into it and began extensive renovations, which have only just started to come to an end after 6 years. The maintenance will always continue! Once we started the project, it evolved into renovating everything in sight – which included the 1860’s ‘Men's Room’ building on the property. We thought by establishing a bed and breakfast business that other people could also enjoy the country experience of Redwing Farm, whether it’s to have a quiet break or as a base for experiencing all the area has to offer. Essentially, we’ve used our experience in renovating and our background in tourism to restore Redwing Shearer's Quarters to the standard that we believe would make our guests’ visit perfect!
Redwing Shearer's Quarters has become very popular and many couples let us know they would love to bring their children or grandchildren back to the farm. So in 2012 we began renovating a 1950’s barn on the property and opened it in Easter 2013. With its 2 bedrooms, open plan living, full kitchen and large decking area, Redwing Barn has been an immediate hit with families and couples!
In 2018 we had the opportunity to renovate a 1950's caravan...we obviously couldn't pass this up! So in late 2019, Redwing's Little Patty was added to our accommodation offerings. With king and double beds, fridge, microwave, tv and heating/cooling inside, plus her own firepit, bathroom and BBQ area outside, Little Patty is glamping at it's best!
We have grown to love our special place at Redwing Farm and feel proud to share it with our guests and give them the opportunity to see what country living is all about. We hope that you will come and enjoy visiting Redwing Farm, and that your stay with us in award winning accommodation will be memorable.
