Just returned from a couple of nights in the gorgeous Clare Valley an hour and a half north of Adelaide. Used the tripadvisor reviews to discover Russell and Carol's Bed and Breakfast. Lovely people, beautiful setting, generous breakfast and lived up to every expectation from the Friday night happy hour to the breakfasts. Looking forward to returning in winter and... More

We had three nights in Fettlers Cottage. We wanted to book the other cottage but it was already taken when we made our booking. However, we were very glad to be in Fettlers, because it is perched on the edge of the little valley, and is surrounded by gum trees full of noisy colourful birds, so we actually preferred it....

Enjoyed a one night stay in the Fettlers Cottage, a one bedroom quaint cottage. Very clean, enjoyed the little extras, we ordered a cheese platter and received complementary wine and chocolates. Enjoyed the bacon and eggs left in the fridge to make our own breakfast. The location is within Clare, so easy walking to wherever you wish to go in... More

We stayed in The Pavilion last year for a weekend for our wedding anniversary and returned again this year. It was another lovely relaxing weekend. The cottage is nice and clean with generous breakfast provisions provided. It was so nice to sit on the balcony and just watch the birds. It's a short drive into Clare or you can walk... More

My partner and I were looking for a relaxed, private B&B to retreat to for the weekend. The Coach House at St Helens Country Cottages was exactly what we were looking for. After a very warm welcome from the owners, Russell & Carol, we entered our own separate little cottage. The first thing we noticed was how well presented and... More
