Mintaro is a leisurely two hour drive north of Adelaide. There is little in the town itself apart from a handful of B&Bs; a coffee shop attached to the Mintaro Maze, a lunch spot which I'm told is very good and the historic Magpie & Stump Hotel which, I gather, only does dinner Wednesday to Saturday. I mention this because... More

A great spot for a romantic weekend with a loved one, or a base from which to explore the Clare Valley wine region. Gorgeous, cottage-style accommodation, open fireplaces, spa baths and comfy furnishings.

Lovely B&B. Well positioned in the Valley. Clean & comfortable. Beautiful gardens. Fully equipped kitchen. Most breakfast foods are supplied. Just needs a couple of "cuddly" seats in front of the TV and fireplace, and a light over the bathroom mirror.

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

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...
