About Us 

The Stone Family.

We are the Stone family, and yes that is partly the reason for the name of the estate. The other reason - there is a beautiful old stone creek running through the estate, which is where a lot of the stone for the estate's cottage and barn originally came from. 

Living in the homestead, owners Wayne and Sheryl live with one of their four children and are joined by their beloved Golden Retriever and the many Stoney Creek Equestrian horses in the estate's paddocks. Sheryl has spent her career in healthcare, both nursing and medical sales. As well as having a passion of caring for people, Sheryl has also been involved in organising many corporate events for the organisations she has worked for. Her newest passion is caring for the land and the gardens surrounding the estate and Stoney Creek Cottage. Wayne is the estate's resident builder and has lovingly renovated the cottage and cannot wait to share his iconic creations with you when you stay - like the double shower with gum tree views and the romantic outdoor bath!

Moving to Strathalbyn in 2021, the estate's historic barn and cottage presented the perfect opportunity to share their love for the land. Very quickly the next year ideas grew and, joined by eldest son Adam and his wife Lara, the journey began for Stoney Creek Estate. The other half of Stoney Creek Estate, Adam, Lara, their tractor obsessed son, Groodle and Labradoodle, are on the estate most weekends also enjoying the 28 acres. 

Lara has extensive experience and knowledge within the wedding and events industries, having organised and delivered personalised weddings for couples in the Adelaide Hills and also internationally in Switzerland whilst working with family at their beautiful venue Garden Villa. Currently working in international recruitment and marketing, Lara has executed her fair share of corporate events and cannot wait to discuss her ideas with you for functions at the estate. 

Adam is the estate's resident cabinet maker and has been balancing his time between his own business Stone Built Cabinet Makers  and working on the estate. Adam has helped to create a spectacular venue, bringing his passion for design and master craftsmanship to life. We cannot wait to share Stoney Creek Estate with you, whether you are celebrating your wedding in our historic barn or staying the night in our cottage - we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
