Peppermint Farm Cottage
Ranked #5 of 17 McLaren Vale B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Peppermint Farm is beautifully situated in the middle of a vineyard and within a short drive to wineries, restaurants and the McLaren Vale and Willunga town centres. You can even walk to some of the wineries and restaurants if you're up for it.

The B&B offers plenty of provisions and is definitely the best one we've ever stayed at. The rooms have been beautifully restored and in addition to spacious bedrooms, the living room, kitchen and bathroom are very comfortable and well-equipped. We've stayed at Peppermint Farm twice with overseas guests and they all absolutely loved the setting and surrounding wildlife. Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing getaway!

Stayed: March 2013, traveled with family

We have been back and forth many times now to McLaren Vale and Peppermint Farm so far has been the best place to stay.
Absolutely lovingly restored old cottage in perfect location between McLaren Vale and Willunga, quiet as right in the middle of the vineyards and with plenty of breakfast provisions.
Topped with a bottle of house wine and complimentary port - truly and amazing place to start your exploration of the region.

Many thanks for your positive review. The location and surrounds convinced us to invest in the restoration of the old cottage and we are very proud of the result.

We look forward to seeing you again one day.

A beautifully restored cottage that was just perfect for the relaxing weekend getaway that we required. It is well appointed and the breakfast provisions were generous.

Thanks again for having us!

This little cottage is full of charm and character. Amazing location in amongst the McLaren Vale vines, close to beautiful wineries but secluded enough to feel away from everything.
The house was cute and cozy with all the comforts you need including a fireplace and amazing beds to sleep in. We were taken are of very well, with good wine & a BIG, delicious breakfast supply. Definitely a great escape & somewhere I'd recommend and return to again one day. Thank you to Paul and the team at Peppermint Farm, my friends & I loved it!

Peppermint Farm Cottage is a wonderful restored cottage set amongst the vineyards of McLaren Vale. The location is magic with all of the main wineries close by and McLaren Vale township not too far away.
The cottage itself has 2 bedrooms and can also accommodate more on the pull out sofa bed. The cottage has been renovated and is very comfortable inside. There is a full kitchen with all the equipment you need to cook your own meals and breakfast ingredients are provided for your stay. It was magical walking out the front door in the morning and walking through the vineyard. Booking is easy via their website or by phone. When you arrive the owner will have supplied you with a code to enter the electronic door. Very easy and seemless way to "check in".
There's plenty to see and do in the McLaren Vale so you can easily spend a few days or a week relaxing in the beautiful region of Australia.
