We stayed at Devonshire House for two nights. The owners had thoughtfully provided everything we needed for a perfect self-catered stay. The suite was very comfortable and the gardens were lovely. The location is great for exploring the Clare Valley.

I spent two relaxing days at this amazing old but very well maintained residence with a fully renovated bathroom and spa. The breakfast provisions were more than ample and the special touch of a bottle of wine and chocolates just topped everything off. If you're going to the Clare Valley I'd have no hesitation in recommending this unique establishment.

Margaret and Villis are great hosts and supply plenty of goodies for a cooked breakfast for 2 mornings and of course a bottle of wine and chocolates. We stayed in unit 3 and the bathroom is big enough to get lost in and the in built spa absolutely fabulous. The wonderful cottage garden is lovely to sit in and read... More

We spent two happy, peaceful nights at this delightful olde world residence in the centre of the Clare Valley wine area and which has been beautifully renovated by hosts, Margaret and Villis. After almost two weeks of constant travel this oasis was a welcome change. On arrival we were delighted to find the fridge fully stocked with breakfast goodies for... More

This is definitely a place to spend some time. We were delighted as we entered the old world cottage, we could snuggle on the chesterfield couch in front of the wood fire with the port, wine and chocolates that were supplied, or cook a breakfast feast as all the provisions were left for us in the well laid out kitchen...

Only about 1 hour drive north of Adelaide is this lovely B&B. You cannot believe how quiet a place can be. The bed was spacious and so comfortable, the well appointed huge bathroom and the breakfast supplies magnificent (especially the bacon). When you walk out the back door you find this hidden garden full of surprises. Thanks to Margaret and... More

A friend gave my fiance and I a voucher to stay here as an engagement present and amid months of wedding planning we couldn't wait to escape for a weekend. What a wonderful place! Devonshire House is everything it promises to be and more. The town of Mintaro feels like a step back in time, and while the cottage has... More
