We love The Miners Cottage - it's quaint, beautiful and serene. We booked all 3 cottages and had the entire place to ourselves. Godfrey, the owner, went out of his way to make us feel really at home. The finer touches that he put in - chocolates, fruits, flowers... were really appreciated. If we were to visit Barossa again, we'll definitely stay here again!
