What is Farm Stay?
Nestled in Blakiston in the beautiful Adelaide Hills is Cara’s purpose-built Farm Stay property, offering a luxurious rural retreat. Completed in 2015, Farm Stay is a gorgeous farm house sleeping up to four adults with room for a staff member to sleep over, too. There are four bedrooms, each opening on to a deck, and each bedroom has access to a shared two-way ensuite bathroom.
At Farm Stay, we make accessibility a priority. The kitchen bench has room for a wheelchair to fit underneath and powerpoints on top of the bench, the garden paths and the raised garden beds are suitable for wheelchairs and walking frames and even the Chicken Palace, home to Farm Stay's hens, is accessible.
Farm Stay guests can collect the eggs for breakfast, grow, tend and harvest vegetables or herbs for lunch or help feed the animals if they wish. Farm Stay is home to a sheep, goats, birds, a rabbit and an aplaca!
There's also a spacious deck to mingle with other guests and linger over a meal.
Our dedicated Cara staff are here to make your Farm Stay fun, fulfilling and help you achieve your NDIS goals. Enjoy arts and crafts, pampering, taking care of the farm animals, cooking, sensory activities and more. It's your choice.
Blakiston, which is just outside Littlehampton about 30 minutes from Adelaide, is the perfect base from which to explore the Hills and nearby attractions. Stay for a couple of nights or book an extended stay – you may not want to leave!
Farm Stay is accepting Short Term Accommodation ongoing bookings if you like plan ahead. Some people stay every couple of weeks, others choose one longer stay every few months.
Thank you: Farm Stay’s land purchase and house construction was funded by the federal government’s Department of Social Services and a generous bequest to Cara.
