From the moment you are greeted till you walk back out the door, "The Nest" makes you feel like you are really on holiday. The mood is set as you walk in the door with the lights on, aircon on and ambient music playing. Perfect retreat for 2 people on a very romantic weekend. Breakfast with cereals and bacon, eggs,...

A weekend at The Nest Country Cottages was so relaxing. A very apt name for the secluded and quaint little cottage. The cottage looks pretty ordinary from the outside. However, internally it is cosy, clean, well appointed with generous supply of teas, coffees (including a Nespresso machine). There is an option to order DIY breakfast makings. We chose to take...

Attended for one night only with my wife on 28th December 2015 staying in the Luxury Lavender Fields Cottage. A pleasant beautiful drive to the location was preceded with visits to nearby Hahndorf & Stirling to enjoy lunch & pick up those vital wine supplies for our stay. On arrival we were met by the staff member who was polite,... More

We visited Gum Tree Cottage over the Melbourne Cup long weekend and couldn't have imagined a more relaxing and homely location to spend our time in the Adelaide Hills. Every last detail has been thought of including a great selection of food for a country style breakfast. The nearby town of Hahndorf and the Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens are definitely... More

Our family of four had the most remarkable stay at the quaint and homely Gum Tree Cottage. For city dwellers like us, it was an unforgettable experience to be residing in an old cottage in the heart of the countryside, complete with modern comforts without losing its rustic charm. The cottage is complete in every possible detail, including a traditional... More

'The Villa' was excellent for us in our preparations for our engagement/wedding day. We had planned a surprise wedding and the gardens allowed for beautiful photos prior to our arrival at our venue. It was an extremely large Master bedroom and a beautiful bath to soak in. Breakfast foods supplied were of a large quantity, only out done by the... More

We booked in at the Gum Tree Cottage and what a breathe taking place it is. We fell in love with the cottage as soon as we saw it. If you want to stay in a picture book cottage, this is the place to go. A great place to relax and unwind, which was exactly what we needed. You are... More

We had a wonderful stay at Apple Tree Cottage. The gardens are just stunning and a perfect place to sit and watch the blue wrens flitting around the garden. The hubby and kids made good use of the row boat, spending time on the lake fishing and kangaroo spotting. The cottage itself is homely and comfortable with lots of special... More

We stayed at Lavender Fields for one night on a business trip to Adelaide. One night was definitely not long enough and if the place was not booked out the next night we would have extended our stay. We arrived after dark and the lights were on for us, the heater going and the fire set ready to light -... More
