We had a last minute decision to come to Clare on our road trip across the Nullarbor and finding places that allowed dogs was always tricky. Fortunately we came across Carol and Russell who run these fantastic cabins smack bang in the heart of the Valley and right on the Riesling trail. They were so friendly, helpful but most of...

We stayed at St Helens country cottages in June 2016, booking out all the cottages for an extended family birthday celebration. The venue was just beautiful, with scenic, peaceful outlooks and was on the riesling trail. There were activities for all age levels, including cricket, bocce, a tyre swing and a drinks night. It was lovely to see the child,...

Fettlers Cottage was the perfect place for our visit to the Clare Valley. From the time we walked in the door we felt so much at home. The cottage was beautifully furnished with an old world charm, every small detail is thought of, excellent quality linen, even bath robes and slippers. The table was set for meals with linen napkins...

We hired the main house (where the hosts live). Accommodation was fabulous. Hosts made us very welcome. Breakfasts were great. Just as a B&B should be. Leaves you wanting nothing. Only weird thing was sharing a bathroom with two doors - one form each bedroom! when you know the other couple staying, that's fine...but would be strange if you didn't...

We NEVER book out the other bedroom when only a couple stays in the guest suite. We realize that it wouldn't be very nice to share a bathroom with strangers!

Lovely little cottage a stones throw from the Riesling Trail. Beautifully furnished with amazing attention to detail. Lots of little extras including wine and chocolates. Wood burning combustion fire was very much appreciated and added to the cosy feel. Provisions for breakfast included cereals, bacon and eggs and the coffee machine was much appreciated. Our hosts were very friendly and...

I can't understand why many kitchen and bathroom floors in Australia are built about 5cms higher than the general floor level of the rest of the house. When we arrived at Fettlers Cottage we noticed in the folder of details about the house a warning that there was a small step into the bathroom. Unfortunately when my wife went to...
