The gorgeous accomodation full of ambiance, the old world furniture, the welcome bottle of wine, the home made chocolates, the luxurious leather couch the wood fire, the bubbling spa, the delicious breakfast, the attention to little details and the welcoming...

We stayed over the weekend and arrived on a Friday afternoon. We were warmly welcomed and invited to join the hosts by the fire pit for "happy hour". After settling in we headed down to join them by the dam and vineyard and were given a glass of wine each and provided with some delicious snacks to share. Very welcoming... More

What a lovely place with great accommodation and ample food provisions. Very helpful owners, they even sent our little boys jumper back to us by post when left behind. If you want a peaceful place to base yourself in the Clare Valley then definitely consider this. We will be back

Just lovely. Had everything we needed. We could have very happily stayed longer. We stayed in the Pavillion which was wonderfully private for a romantic getaway. They supplied us with generous amounts of eggs and bacon for breakfast. Great location, a long-ish walk to the centre of Clare, but still quiet and peaceful. Walking distance to a couple of wineries,... More

We stayed 4 nights in Fettlers Cottage over the New Year. Situation in the gum trees was magnificant as was the bird life around the cottage. The Topperweins had travelled to Adelaide, and their stand-in manager greeted us warmly on arrival and immediately saw to a small door lock problem we encountered. We chose this accommodation because we could walk... More

Wonderful stay. Had everything we could need. Waking up to the birdlife is just beautiful. Perfect location for long walks on the Reisling Trail or into Clare then come back light the fire and spend a wonderful evening relaxing. Just loved it.

We only had a couple of nights here but could have happily stayed longer. Booking was easy by contacting the owners and all information was provided on how to access.

New owners Carol and Russel were wonderful hosts. We stayed in the Pavillion Cottage - one of three cottages, and it was very well presented, clean and spacious. There is a verandah looking over peaceful large grounds, with a vineyard across the way and the Reisling trail (for walking and riding) just 100m away. Our dogs were welcomed, and they... More

We loved our stay at St Helens which is close to all wineries and restaurants in the Clare Valley. Picturesque units set amoung the native shrubs and gum trees. The bird life was exceptional. Being self contained so we moved around at our own pace. Our morning breakfast was lavish and more if we wished. A bottle of lovely wine... More
