#15 of 27 B&Bs / Inns in Adelaide Hills
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.

Our son was recently married at Al-Ru Farm and we cannot speak more highly of the venue. The gardens and outlook are superb and the food and service was excellent. Highly recommended for prospective couples.

lovely spot for a wedding. very pretty. Grounds and gardens were a nice backdrop for the outdoor wedding. Had to have a caterer to do the food but overall very nice and enjoyed the day immensely. Would highly recommend this place for anyone wanting an outdoor wedding

What a great location for a celebration, the gardens are beautiful, the staff friendly and as attentive as we have ever experienced in Australia. The meals where delicious, drink waiters continually topping up the water, wine or drinks. Well done to the team, we would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a function place in SA.

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 and it truly is. The fridge is stocked with fresh eggs, bacon, tomato and jam for the perfect breakfast and Alan crept up and hung freshly baked bread on our door handle in the morning! Coffee, many teas, milk and juice is all provided. Nothing is too much trouble for Milos and Ruth and Alan were more than happy to show us around and share their stories with us. We even were short a vase and Ruth invited Mum into their home and offered her a selection of her own to use! The wonderful fauna (Rosie the dog, Blossom the cow, Peacock the peacock, cats and abundance of chickens) only add to the charm of this wonderful venue. If you're looking for a wedding venue that has it all, a romantic night away with your significant other or an escape from reality with your girlfriends look no further than Al- Ru Farm, truly sensational.

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 structures, the toilets are easy to find and also discreet. We were joined during the ceremony by some friendly chickens who wandered up to pay their respects to the happy couple, and later, as the photographer was doing her thing, a huge, friendly St. Bernard dog lumbered up to us, attracting the delight and cuddles of the few children present. Overall, Al-Ru Farm is a lovely spot, and a very well kept secret, I think. If you're looking for a function venue or want to take advantage of their B&B, I really think you'd be very satisfied with the whole place.
