Part of our deal with Lyndoch Hill was a complimentary Devonshire tea for one plus pay one. The scones were hot and the texture just right. Rather a lot of lovely jam and cream but we enjoyed it all. This was all close to the wood heater so on a cold day seemed perfect. After our Devonshire tea we browsed the gift shop and came away with some classy purchases.

Put Chateau Barossa on your list of must-visit. The architecture alone is worth a look but the shop has a great range of clothes and nick-nacks we didn't find elsewhere. And very reasonable prices! Highly recommended.

Just happened to be in the area for their Christmas shopping night. Unfortunately they didn't have any local arts and crafts ..which was disappointing. Majority of products were the usually mass produced overseas made items. The building and gardens are very well maintained.

This is certainly something that should not be missed! A collection of original paintings, antiques and furniture predominantly from the Baroque period in France. A gentleman by the name of Thumm collected from all over Europe, and the porcelain is from the early 19th and 19th centuries.
The upstairs gallery have tapestries, jade pieces, fine paintings, two Meissen clocks, plus spodework and jade sets! It is not open to the public, so it necessary to book a tour. I was fortunate enough to have a afternoon devonshire tea with mine, but this does not usually come with a tour, however, you can buy one. Wine of course can be tasted, plus there is a good gift shop there. There is plenty to see on ground floor level, without having to negotiate the stairs however!
Outside you see beautiful roses if you go in either end of October through to November. Good walking shoes, a hat and plenty of time to enjoy the garden is needed!
The Queen herself opened The Chateau in 2002 (I think) and you can see photographs of her with Mr. Thumm, plus the actual table she sat on to sign the visitor's book!
A good place for all to see, especially overseas visitors!

Depending on your interests, the collection will either excite you or leave you with mixed feelings. It mainly consists of porcelain and glass on the lower level, with some furniture on the upper level. Quite a lot of this is French in origin and tends to be floral and decorative. The entry fee wasn't made clear on the website, which I was a bit disappointed about. Can easily get through the collection in 30 minutes. The shop front appears a little tacky with overpriced "faux-French" things. Can't speak about the wines.
