Stayed at The Pavilion, cosy, quaint one bedroom cottage with a wood burning fire. Very peaceful and close to Riesling Trail, could just leave the bikes on the verandah. The owners were very friendly and informative about the area. Would definitely stay here again without hesitation.

Cottage had everything we needed and located in relaxing quiet surroundings near the Reisling Trail which is easy to walk. The owners were friendly and close by if we needed to contact them - without being intrusive Lots of great walking tracks in surrounding area for all levels of fitness in pretty countryside - stunning in autumn- plenty of wineries...

We stayed 3 nights in the guest suite - fabulous! Beautifully fitted with everything we could possibly have needed and more. We had access to a large sitting room as well as our large bedroom with ensuite. Everything was luxurious! Carol and Russell were extremely friendly and helpful. The grounds have beautiful old eucalypts and well-tended gardens, attracting native birds.... More

A group of us (ten people) stayed at St Helens when we went to the Clare Valley to celebrate a friend's 30th Birthday. From the moment we arrived the accommodation, grounds and hospitality far exceeded our expectations. All of the group agreed that the beds were very comfortable, the facilities excellent and the rooms very well looked after. Both Carol... More

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

Everything was just so great, picnic lunch, yummy breakfast, port in the room etc. Very comfortable bed and living area felt just like we were starting in somebody's house. Easy to find, great location. Thank you for a... 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
