Firstly the grounds and gardens were just stunning! Picturesque would be an understatement! It was lovely to stroll through and as four grown adults, even we loved the story book trail! Then comes the restaurant and the service. George has some of the best customer service skills in Adelaide. Coming from a background in hospitality myself, that is a HUGE... More

One of Adelaide's most historic homesteads. Open to the general public, entry fee to see inside the house. Beautifully sculpted garden, ideal for seeing plays etc during warmer months. Catering is lack luster and there is much room for improvement. Not difficult to get sones, jam & cream correct!

This attraction just south of the city, has magnificent gardens in which to stroll, an arbour, a wonderful house furnished with art work and interesting furniture (fee to enter house), and a restaurant with fine food or a relaxed setting for coffee and cake. There was nothing to dislike.

Gorgeous wandering gardens, perfect for a summer picnic. If you like a little history, pay the small entrance fee and enjoy a look through the house, really interesting.

What a stunning house in picturesque gardens. I was astounded with the number of Artworks in the house;Epstein,Sickert,Gaugin also showing was a collection by Hannaford,that was worth a look on its own. The guided tour of the house was very informative. I would go again in the spring to enjoy the gardens even more.

Came here as a child many years ago but never appreciated it until returning now as an adult. To visit the garden area is free and this alone is well worth a visit, lots of photo opportunities, flowers and gardens to wander. There is a storybook trail for the kids, and a coffee shop for the adults. Inside the house... More

Stunning grounds and interesting gardens around an amazing heritage treasure. It is great to experience the house and the style of the Hayward family and see how they lived. A great afternoon exploring.

Set in beautiful grounds, this amazing house is so much a part of South Australian history. A tour of the house itself is a must. Incredibly designed and built around the 16th century oak staircase, windows and door surrounds brought from England, it is a stunning family home. You can see and feel how they lived, and the art treasures... More
