Old World Charm In The Barossa

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 Feb 2012
Strathlyn Estate is a charming, tranquil retreat nestled among the vines near Angaston. We spent 3 nights in the Coach House and loved every minute there. The Coach House is set at the back of the Estate with a separate driveway, so is very private and secluded. The estate also has another couple of units attached to the main homestead.

The Coach House exudes romantic old world charm, with the interior just as lovely as the carefully restored building. There is an upstairs queen bedroom, while downstairs there is a lounge, kitchenette, bathroom and separate toilet. Each room is beautifully appointed with careful attention to detail - a bottle of Barossa wine on arrival, bathrobes and sandals in the closet, a lavender essential oil burner, macadamia nut handwash, scented candles and bath/body toiletries were supplied. The lounge is well stocked with books, magazines, board games, DVDs and games. An all wood interior and vintage radio/record player complete the old world charm.

Our host Heather was helpful and accommodating. She filled the kitchen with generous breakfast provisions, including a selection of cereals, bread, bacon, eggs, juice and plunger coffee. She was also happy to help with any additional requests and made sure a basic BBQ was available for our stay.

One of the best aspects of the Coach House is the balcony overlooking the vines. It is a beautiful spot to watch the sunrise, sunset or enjoy a romantic al fresco meal. When it rained, the cottage felt cosy and homely. When it was warm, the reverse cycle air conditioner worked very well.

Another bonus is that this lovely accommodation is well positioned. It is literally 5 minutes walk to Vintners Bar & Grill, 2 minutes across the property to neighbouring winery Saltram, and a casual 10-15 minute walk into the town of Angaston with its wine bars, restaurants and shops.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Strathlyn Estate and would not hesitate to recommend it to our friends. We look forward to the next time we can visit the Barosssa Valley and return to the Coach House.
