4 and a half stars is what I would actually give. Everything you need for a visit to the Barossa, and an excellent example of the traditional style of Barossa Valley B and B (very little alternative if you are planning an overnight or longer stay in the region as very few actual hotels). They have thought of everything and... More

Thankyou for taking the time to comment. The bedroom at the front of the cottage has a double layer of glass (a second window inside the first), which keeps any street noise in that room to a minimum. But guests are welcome to sleep in either room to suit their needs. As you noted, the traffic (and you must have... More

We stayed here in September/ October for 10 nights and enjoyed every moment. The house is very well provisioned and everything you could want for a relaxing holiday is provided. It is very well positioned allowing us to visit the Adelaide Hills, the Clare Valley and of course the Barossa itself. Self catering is easy and the BBQ was well... More

I'm glad you found the cottage a great base for your holiday. It is possible to base yourself in the Barossa Valley and visit the other nearby wine areas which are only an hour away by car - Clare Valley to the north and the Adelaide Hills to the south east. Thanks for your recommendation. More

We stayed here in July for four nights. At first when we booked we thought we have to share this place with at least another couple / family. But then we've realised we got the whole place for ourselfes! I don't know where to begin to tell you how great this place is. This is probably the best place we've... More

Thank you very much for your very positive review. You've described the cottage very extensively. The bathroom has heat lamps in the ceiling light fitting, but the size of the room means it can be hard to get it warm. Barossa mornings can get quite chilly in winter. But, as you said, the rest of the cottage has heating and... More

My wife and I have talked about getting away for a romantic weekend for some time and finally did it it! I looked at a number of locations and settled on the Old Telegraph Station.

We only stayed here 1 night, but it would have been fabulous if we could have stayed a few more days. We loved that it was located in Greenock - a great location close to a pub, beautiful scenery and some of the best wineries around - away from the busier communities of Kapunda and Nooriutpa. The B&B is well... More

In recent weeks I had the opportunity to visit the wine region north of Adelaide and based the day trips at the quiet little hamlet of Greenock. Situated equidistant between the busier communities of Kapunda and Nooriutpa, Greenock is a jewel serviced by a service station / general store, post office, hairdresser and hotel. Without doubt the gemstone of this... More

I'm glad you enjoyed your time in Greenock and the Barossa Valley. Yes, it is a small town but the people are friendly and there are all the facilities needed, and it is no further from wineries than the major towns.

When planning our trip to Australia with a stop in the Barossa Valley, we happened to spot this place and liked the idea of having a nice house with a history behind it. Greenock itself may not be the place one falls in love with, but when you enter this little gem, you immediately feel like home and can fully... More
