We really enjoyed our 2-night stay at the cottages which is right on the Riesling Trail where you can ride or walk for miles. We found the cottage very clean and tidy and the owners Chris and Mick to be very friendly. Only drawback was no internet access however Mick advised that the NBN (broadband network) will be installed this...

We stayed here for a weekend as we had a wedding in Clare. The cottages are on the Riesling trail and close to a place that hires bikes so you can hop on the trail right there. The cottages are quaint and include breakfast provisions. Mick at the office was very helpful and gave recommendations on wineries to visit and...

Many thanks Carmel and we look forward to seeing you again next time. The gardens were certainly lovely when you were here and are even more so now that the roses have come into their own - not just here but all over the Clare Valley! Cheers.

We stayed here on a 2 night package and it was great! The hosts were very flexible and the cottages were very comfortable. We cycled the Riesling Trail and found the location to be perfect. I would recommend this as a stay for anyone visiting Clare 👍🏻

Our cottage was gorgeous and our reception warm and friendly. Set among lovely spring flowers and utterly quiet and private, the cottage had everything for anyone to be at home. We especially liked the dining nook in the bay window. We were able to stroll into Claire for morning tea and we drove out to Burra which was really fascinating....

Thanks Lita. So nice of you to respond so positively. We feel that the handiness of our location to both the Trail and Clare township is one of our best features. Many guests also love that bay window in Rose cottage! Cheers.

It was lovely to receive your comments, Louise, and we're glad you enjoyed your stay. We're delighted you appreciated the extra touches which provide our cottages with their distinctive character but also make them a home away from home.
