Our 2nd cottage is the cosy Stables Cottage which as its name implies was the accommodation for horses. The Stables cottage has been extended and lovingly renovated for use of human guests and is perfect for that romantic getaway for two. This Cottage has a Lounge with kitchenette and a separate queen bedded room with ensuite spa for two with shower over. Our newly renovated 3rd cottage is our Garden Suite, a fully self contained, accommodation in a wing of the original factory building but totally closed off for complete privacy. This Suite is two bedrooms, one a double and the other a queen bed, lounge/dining with a brand new kitchen. The bathroom contains a large walk in shower, vanity and handy for those longer stays your own front loading washing machine. All cottages are situated on the property in over an acre of landscaped gardens nestled on the banks of the River Angas and are just a stroll from the town centre with its shops and cafes, notably for great coffee and food the Bean Machine, the Market Shed, The Appleseed and Jacks. In the evenings we are lucky to have an award winning restaurant the Olfactory Inn just 1/2 a kilometre up the road, as well as a stunning Tapas Wine Bar called Smith's and four pubs that serve food as well as a Family Pizzeria Ruffinos. We are 10 mins from the fine wineries of Langhorne Creek, visit Angas Plains Winery, Bremerton, Lake Breeze to name but a few. We are happy to arrange wine tours and provide more information on many other fine places to visit.More

Interaction with guests
We live on site, so when you arrive we will show you to your cottage - hand you the key and the sumptuous breakfast provisions and leave you to enjoy. Some guests wave as they pass in and out of the property. Others take advantage of the hosted breakfast or wine and cheese platter. The choice is yours. As we know you will enjoy the extensive gardens, you may well find us either pruning, or planting.
