When planning our trip to Australia with a stop in the Barossa Valley, we happened to spot this place and liked the idea of having a nice house with a history behind it. Greenock itself may not be the place one falls in love with, but when you enter this little gem, you immediately feel like home and can fully enjoy it. The house offers all you want for a peaceful and relaxing holiday, with a great garden with BBQ area. We are glad we booked two nights, but could easily have stayed longer.

We did visit the Murray Street Vineyards just "round the corner". We can highly recommend that place too.

Room Tip: Barossa Valley offers of course lots of accommodation facilities of all standards. If you like the idea of your own quiet place, book the Old Telegraph Station, you will not regret it.

The perfect place for my wife and I and our two old girls to unwind. Sue could certainly teach a lot of budding b&b operators how to present a perfect house. With an emphasis on local produce, the provisions at the house were excellent and have renewed our passion for fresh and local producers. A short walk to the local shop and hotel was rewarded with friendly and helpful service. A meal at the hotel was of a quality restaurant. Generally we dined from the bar bq and just relaxed, but as we were only 5 to 10 minutes from a lot of the larger more well known wineries and even closer to others lesser known we could easily have created a couple of booming hangovers. There is a lovely farmers market at Angaston (10 minute drive) held on Saturdays am. You can get more central in the Barossa, but can you get better? An altogether wonderful stay really that says it all.

Room Tip: Do explore local towns. Walking the main street can reveal some wonderful shops and cafes

We stayed at The Old Telegraph for two days. It was in a very quiet location and really close to the Murray St Winery.
The Telegraph Station had a country cottage feel and was clean with all the amenities we needed for a short break.

What a wonderful place to base yourself in the Barossa Valley.

We recently had a weekend at this little gem and had a terrific time. The cottage was clean, well appointed, very comfortable and in a great, quiet location. The locals were very welcoming as well. The breakfast supplies were great as were the nice little extra touches like the complementary wine and port.

We would highly recommend this lovely little cottage to anyone thinking of staying in the Barossa.

When we opened the door it was like stepping back in time into this beautiful and unique cottage. We were staying in the Barossa for two nights and could have stayed here for the duration with its old world charm, log fire, complimentary wine and port, plentiful breakfast provisions and spa bath to boot. There's a beautiful back yard and Murray st. winery within walking distance and also a pub in the other direction also in walking distance, we would recommend a visit to both these establishments. We would recommend the old telegraph station to anyone wishing to have a stay in the Barossa.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay at the cottage. The cottage is well over a century old and we are lucky enough to be the current custodians of it. Retaining its old world charm and not hiding it's history is important to us.
Regards, Sue.
