McLeod's Daughters setting Kingsford Homestead, near Barossa Valley, adds new luxury suites

The historic Kingsford Homestead on the edge of the Barossa Valley and just over an hour's drive from Adelaide garnered international attention as the setting of 1990s television hit series McLeod's Daughters.

Tours of the associated countryside were especially popular with European visitors, so much so that one German tourist asked his driver to pull over outside the property so that he could kiss the ground.

In its latest iteration, the 1856 National Trust property, set on more than 90 hectares of classic South Australian landscape of gum trees and rolling hillsides has had its luxury offerings further expanded.

In addition to the eight luxury Homestead suites and Meg's three-bedroom cottage, four new View suites have uninterrupted vistas from the bed, the lounge or private courtyard.

Outside there's a saltwater pool, a cast iron claw foot "bush bath" with champagne experience, and guests are welcome to explore the property.

Unsurprisingly, the fine dining focus at onsite restaurant Orleana is on seasonal and local food and the wine tunnel and vaults contain local collections of Henschke, Penfolds, Yalumba, Rockford and Seppeltsfield wines.

There's the Peppertree Bar with a fireplace to sit by and enjoy a Barossa shiraz or the underground, German-inspired, Kegelbahn bowling alley.

Suite bookings from June 26 cost from $895 a night including cooked breakfast for two.
