There are a lot of B&B's around the valley but the best thing about the old telegraph station is that it is sole occupancy so you have the entire property to yourself. Travelling with kids in tow this can be important! There are two bedrooms. If you are in the front bedroom you may notice the road noise as the... More

A beautiful cottage in the main street of Greenock. Generous breakfast provisions, comfortable beds, an open fire and a complimentary bottle of wine. Close to some fantastic wineries. We had a fantastic stay - would love to return.

Birthday Treat from my family of a short stay at the Old Telegraph Station and visits to some of the local wineries. A delightful and extremely comfortable property (the beds were particularly comfortable) and the wood fire was most welcome during our cold but sunny visit. Excellent location for visiting all the main sites of the Barossa and (if you... More

We have stayed at this lovely little property twice this year. The first time it was warmer so we enjoyed the outside BBQ and lovely enclosed gardens. The second was in cooler weather so we utilised the wood fire in the lounge and large spa bath. Both times we felt at ease and pampered as soon as we arrived. There... More

This was a last minute booking and I was intrigued to stay in a place with some history. We were delighted with what we found when we opened the door - a gorgeous cottage with everything that we needed. We slept in the Queen bedroom and had no noise issues and it was a very comfortable sleep. The step-by-step instructions... More

We were fortunate enough to have the Old Telegraph Station over the Easter break. Easy to find and only an hour away from Adelaide, we were absolutly blown away by the place! The huge amount of breakfast goodies offered including food from lots of local growers/suppliers, even a pack of Hot Cross Buns! There's everything you could want in the... More

Wow. Thank you very much for your wonderful review. The original settlers that built the cottage in the 1860s were obviously not tall as witnessed by a couple of lower doorways. Its not an issue for me as I'm only five feet two! I'm glad you enjoyed your experience of Murray Street Vineyards and the local pub. Being central to... More

Amazing last night stay to our holiday in South Australia. Character, clean and well provided for. Hostess answers any queries promptly and you can feel history seeping throught the walls. Breakfast is provided for which is great and the welcome pack of wine and port make you feel right at home as does the stunning back garden. A great place... More

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
