Penny's Hill: The Kitchen Door

The Kitchen Door and now also the Penny's Hill cellar door are currently closed for a significant re-development.

Restaurant & Cellar Door closed until further notice

The Kitchen Door restaurant as well as the Penny's Hill cellar door and art gallery are closed for now, whilst a transformation in what the new owners describe as a family friendly tourism village is under way. 

There are not a lot of details available yet, but what has been announced so far is that the village will include chocolate, ice cream, a bakery, coffee as well as wine, gin, craft beer and whisky - plus a new family friendly restaurant.

We can't wait to see what they are doing, and if the initial Seppeltsfield development in the Barossa is a guide (as the official announcement says), it should include opening up the beautiful grounds of the old ‘Ingleburne’ homestead, a historic Georgian two-storey farmhouse, as well as an integration of the ironstone stables and out-buildings in the new venture.

Stay tuned - we will update this page as we learn more.
