We booked a single bedroom cottage (through Travel Auctions). The cottage (attached and part of an old hotel) had a comfortable lounge/dining area/kitchen and a wood burning heater as well as air condidtioning. Large bathroom with spa. Wood for the fire was supplied and we enjoyed using the fire both nights. Close to Clare Valley, Martindale Hall and Burra. Historical... More

We have stayed at Devonshire House 4 times now and love it to pieces. The history is immense and is presented in the wonderful slate floors, thick stone walls, character cupboards, doors and even the massive locks on the doors. Each room is different but filled with beautiful furniture and a very comfortable bed. We always stay late autumn or... More

Mintaro is a leisurely two hour drive north of Adelaide. There is little in the town itself apart from a handful of B&Bs; a coffee shop attached to the Mintaro Maze, a lunch spot which I'm told is very good and the historic Magpie & Stump Hotel which, I gather, only does dinner Wednesday to Saturday. I mention this because... More

A great spot for a romantic weekend with a loved one, or a base from which to explore the Clare Valley wine region. Gorgeous, cottage-style accommodation, open fireplaces, spa baths and comfy furnishings.

Lovely B&B. Well positioned in the Valley. Clean & comfortable. Beautiful gardens. Fully equipped kitchen. Most breakfast foods are supplied. Just needs a couple of "cuddly" seats in front of the TV and fireplace, and a light over the bathroom mirror.

We stayed at Devonshire House for two nights. The owners had thoughtfully provided everything we needed for a perfect self-catered stay. The suite was very comfortable and the gardens were lovely. The location is great for exploring the Clare Valley.

I spent two relaxing days at this amazing old but very well maintained residence with a fully renovated bathroom and spa. The breakfast provisions were more than ample and the special touch of a bottle of wine and chocolates just topped everything off. If you're going to the Clare Valley I'd have no hesitation in recommending this unique establishment.

Margaret and Villis are great hosts and supply plenty of goodies for a cooked breakfast for 2 mornings and of course a bottle of wine and chocolates. We stayed in unit 3 and the bathroom is big enough to get lost in and the in built spa absolutely fabulous. The wonderful cottage garden is lovely to sit in and read... More
