Wow. I can't even begin to describe the perfection that is Al- Ru Farm. We were married there on January 28th and from the first contact with Milos everything was wonderful. Our wedding was just perfect, Ruth's beautiful garden was the most amazing backdrop, the food was first class, and the accomodation luxurious and unique. They say Bed and Breakfast...

What a stunning location. Al-Ru Farm is absolutely beautiful, nestled in the tranquility of One Tree Hill. I attended a wedding ceremony held in the gardens here, and the staff were extremely discreet and had prepared everything perfectly for the bride and groom's needs. The gardens are beautiful, full of flowers and edible plants, the buildings are all stately old...

WOW!! Al-Ru Farm is a special getaway, and no need to fly anywhere. Ruth has travelled the world and her passion for her garden is outstanding. It was a treat to be able to easily step in and enjoy her home, garden and designs. We booked both rooms as a surprise for Nana's 90th birthday. Perfect!! and we all loved...

My fiancé and I stayed in the B&B after holding our engagement party on the grounds - you could walk around these gardens a thousand times and still not see it all! The room was stunning and we had exceptional service. We will definately be back. Thank you Al Ru Farm!

We recently attended a wedding near the Barossa Valley and discovered this fantastic accommodation. We stayed in beautiful Garden Pavilion and can thoroughly recommend it. Lovely bed, fridge full of breakfast goodies and fresh bread hung on your door knob at 8:00 am. This will be the place we stay again if we are visiting the Barossa Valley. It's not...

A jewel of greenery and charm in the heart of the Adelaide Hills, AL-RU farm is the lovechild of Alan and Ruth Irving. From paddocks and an old farmhouse in an often dry climate, they have really created the most beautiful hideaway within close travelling distance to the city. The gardens are classic and meandering pathways link each new discovery....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Garden Pavillion at Al-Ru Farm is a romantic pavillion set in its very own private gardens amid the expansive country gardens that Al-Ru is famous for. There is a small lake adjacent sporting wild fowl and the occasional kangaroo and baby. There are tables and chairs scattered throughout the gardens for you to relax at with a cup of tea or a glass in hand. The terrace is ideal to watch the sun set from while enjoying a glass of excellent One Tree Hill wine. The Garden Pavillion is totally selfcontained and extremely spacious and comfortable with fluffy white down bedding that feels like sleeping under a cloud. Separate rainwater bath and shower ensures comfort for all travellers. The open fire is a joy for winter evening relaxing. Ruth is a well known Adelaide Antique Dealer specialising in French and English Period furniture with a gentle country twist this is displayed in the Pavillion to great effect. Farm chickens supply the eggs and the orchard the jams. Alan bakes bread and deliveres it fresh and hot in the morning along with the usual cooked breakfast provisions fruit is brought fresh from the orchard when in season. Ruth loves to take you on a stroll throught the garden or talk to you about wineries and best eateries. You will find the Irvings friendly but not intrusive hosts happy to help where they can. ... more   less
