What a beautiful place to visit and spend some time looking around and then relaxing with a coffee or a drink - a great place for a meal too. Such an interesting venue with very interesting history. The grounds are just beautiful to walk around also. Definitely recommend a visit for all ages.

Can't believe you can wander around the grounds for free! We scored a tour through the house with only us and the guide, so it was like a personal escort, and they showed us stuff and let us into areas not available on bigger tour groups ... house was equally impressive on the inside as it was from the outside...

This a beautiful staley home . Really a excellent example of such homes . The grounds are so beautifully maintained you could just sit and have a picnic and imagine what it was like back then . Just a grand home very nice .

You can have fun walking around here imagining the lives of the couple who built this estate. I'm not wildly keen on the oak furniture and fittings, but it is certainly accurate to its time, and you can feel the lives of the original residents. There is even a Dior dress which seems to have belonged to the first wife.... More

I've not visited the stately home or the beautiful gardens yet but that's for another day. Today was about celebrating a special birthday at the lovely cafe. What a treat! Staff were lovely, especially George our waiter. Fun, relaxed and knowledgeable about the food and wine he delivered. As a group of 5 we ordered the shared lunch banquet followed... More

Got a bit lost relying on the TomTom GPS as it led to the main entry which is generally closed. The entry is from Carrickhill Road, follow the brown roadside. Great place for picnic even if you are not visiting the gallery.

Fabulous grounds with a great children's garden. My 5 year old grandson loved it. Did the guided tour of the house. So glad we did. Our guide was lovely, telling us the history of the house and family. The house is setup as if it is still occupied and it really felt that way. What a generous gift to the... More

Home to Sir Edward and Lady Haywood, Carrick Hill Estate is a fabulous insight into the lives of perhaps Adelaide's premier family. Carrick Hill house has been fully restored to its former glory and is a museum in its own right. The property boasts wonderful views over the Adelaide Plains and coast. The gardens are manicured and a must visit... More
