We had a lovely stay at Blickinstal, it's a beautifully set up property with just 5 or 6 units spaced apart between lovely gardens and surrounded by sheep, vines, and national park. Breakfast was amazing and afternoon tea is provided for those who wish also. The units are of a quality build and spacious with everything you need to self-cater,... More

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights at the Blickinstal. There were some nice things about the B&B - the breakfast was good (no fresh fruit, though), very quiet, and great location close to many wineries. The rooms were OK, but verging on being outdated. There is wifi in the main dining room in the owner's house, but doesn't... More

WE stayed 2 nights in August and had the best time. Apart from the great service if you are attending a Rockford Stonewallers lunch Sue is such a great host. She could not do more for you and the Breakfast and afternoon tea are first class.

Lovely clean and well serviced lodges. Love the breakfast and wished my partner and I had have been around at least one afternoon for the afternoon tea! The location is breath-taking. You can walk around the property, exploring the vineyards sit and drink wine looking over some amazing views.

The retreat consists of a 6 apartments (4 studio, 2 lodge) separate from the farmhouse within a small vineyard, providing a lovely rural environment with good views over the property. They even have a few sheep and a couple of alpacas thrown in. The individual studio apartments have a good size main room, a kitchen area, breakfast bar and good... More

This place is beautiful. Accommodation is comfortable and clean. The views are spectacular and change depending on the time of day. The BBQ area is perfect and we were given great tips on where to get great local food to cook ourselves. The accommodation is a great distance from all wineries and local towns. Sue was a spectacular host and... More

What a gem this accommodation is! We arrived late in the afternoon intending to spend one night and quickly decided that what is provided here is so special that we would extend our stay. Sue was really great at checking out her availability and two nights here was absolute bliss. The accommodation is in a row of luxury cabins separated... More

Sue runs an outstanding operation here at her beautiful property, along with husband Mark, dogs Lucy & Max, alpacas, sheep, rams, cows, chickens and cat. It's a wonderful experience to stay here amongst the vines, not to mention Sue's famous breakfasts and afternoon teas. Be sure to be back by 4:00pm! My husband and I stayed for 3 nights and... More

If you want somewhere quiet to relax and unwind, but is close to things to see and do, then this is a great option. The studios are very comfortable, Sue is a wonderful host and does a great breakfast and, if you happen to be back late afternoon, and a very welcome afternoon tea. The view out over the Baross...

- comfortable, well-equipped room. - friendly and helpful owners. - fantastic cooked breakfast included (and Sue, the owner, was happy to make whatever we wanted). - brilliant location, close to a number of the wineries and a short drive to main town of Tanunda. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks Sue!!
