Most Adelaidians are familiar with Barns of Freeling for their sunflower picking festival in the Barossa Valley – an annual, seasonal event where people can mosey through the estate’s yellow fields of flowers and pluck at their pleasure.
If that wasn’t enough to set the acreage apart, Barns of Freeling have launched Australia’s first, custom-built silo suites, and they’re luxurious to say the least.
After three years in the making, the trio of grain silos boast sweeping views across green paddocks, slick interiors, and stunning high ceilings which are reminiscent of a New York loft apartment.
The boutique accommodation’s open-floor plan and polished concrete flooring accentuate the chic ambience – but never fear about that concrete, the silo suites are fully insulated and equipped with heating and cooling for those frosty evenings and spicy summer days.
Having been locally manufactured in the Barossa Valley, the folks of the northern wine region know just how sensational the night skies become, and that’s why the upstairs bedroom in each silo flaunt central skylights for your stargazing needs. We have JBG Architects of the Barossa Valley to thank for that one!
Snoozing in a grain silo might sound a little claustrophobic, but the light-filled space in combination with the nine-metre by four-and-a-half-metre cylinder makes for a roomy affair.
If silo suites don’t quite do it for you though, the Barns of Freeling estate also offer a restored, 1920s studio digs where you can rest easy in the comfort of a more-so rectangular shape.
Barns of Freeling is located a mere one-hour drive from Adelaide’s city centre, and bookings are now open for your staycation calling.
