Langhorne Creek, Fleurieu Peninsula

Built in 1864 by Matthew Rankine, whose father William Rankine settled Strathalbyn, Woodburn Homestead has been sympathetically restored from the Belvidere attic to the stone cellar, since its purchase by the Westphalen family in 2016. Now the home of Cindy’s Classic Gourmet, Woodburn is an all-inclusive destination for weddings, accommodation, birthdays, community events and corporate retreats, with event management by the multi-award winning nationally recognised caterer and planner Cindy Westphalen. 

The stone barn has been saved from crumbling with structural repairs and authentic restorations to transform it into the icon of the property, an Open-Air Chapel. Bricks matching in age, colour and manufacture were used to restore the steps of the cellar, to be used as an intimate function dining room. South Australian slate was sourced to match that used in the construction of the Homestead, to pave an enclosed outdoor area adjoining the Angus River and frame the natural arbour of Australian gum trees for a wedding ceremony backdrop. 

Woodburn Homestead has three bathrooms and four bedrooms each with a private entrance, providing comfortable, luxury Australian accommodation as a base for exploring the food, wine, produce, history and country hospitality of Langhorne Creek in an accessible way.
