Great location, peaceful and relaxing. Great place to stay a few nights and enjoy what the McLaren Vale district has to offer. Brekkie provisions provided on our weekend stay, so we could enjoy a sleep in. Paul and Diane went above and beyond our expectations, thanks again Paul for dropping and picking us up from the concert.

This was my second stay at Peppermint Farm Cottage and definitely won't be my last. I have stayed for work where I found the cottage to be perfect. Quiet after very full working days but still close enough to town and all the wineries for dinners if you prefer to dine out. So much wonderful food and wine on offer...

We just had the best weekend, everything was taken care of by Paul and Diane, they are very courteous and communicated with us very well. The cottage is like a step back in time, built in the 1800's but lovingly restored, very unique by today's standards with all the modern comforts, plus full breakfast provisions provided, and a couple of...

Well appointed with marvellously comfortable bed. So close to vineyards -almost within walking distance. Lots of places to eat close by and spoilt for choice vineyards. Lovely and private. Dark skies at night full of stars. A really peaceful place to stay. It was a charming historic cottage with good heating and amenities and attentive thoughtful and knowledgeable host. We...

Peppermint Farm Cottage is the perfect place to stay when visiting McLaren Vale. Paul & Dianne were the perfect hosts, ensuring we wanted for nothing. The breakfast provisions were great and enough to keep us going for the 5 day stay. We would recommend Peppermint Farm to anyone visiting the area. Perfect. Melissa & Peter

Down a long driveway, Peppermint Farm Cottage is tucked away amongst the vineyards. Very easy to book via email (thank you to Paul for being so prompt). We loved the heritage listed pug building, with ample room; comfy lounge, dining, bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom. We particularly loved the low doorways and slate floors. It was terrific to walk down the...

Thank you so much Lyse. Please let us know if you plan to return to McLaren Vale. Perhaps a longer stay next time. McLaren Vale is full of little gems waiting to be discovered. Apart from the wineries, the food experiences are world class and most visitors are blown away by the local beaches. We hope to see you again...

We've stayed at the Cottage twice in one year time. We loved the location, very quite and a bit isolated, hidden among surrounding vineyards yet a short drive from many many wineries, shops, supermarkets and restaurants. The house is big enough for 4 persons, with lovely terrace on the back side (great for lazy breakfasts in the sun:), all you...

We stayed at Peppermint Farm Cottage the week before Christmas and couldn't recommend the cottage and the hosts more highly. The quaint, heritage listed cottage is set in scenic, peaceful grounds looking out onto the vines and local landscape, with Kangaroos spotted in the vineyards . The cottage contained the right balance between mod cons and antique furniture creating a...
