We have yet to stay at a better more divine cottage! We loved every minute! The lakeside seating provided the most relaxing experience possible. In a few short minutes I was transformed from a bundle of nerves to a relaxed human being.And then there was the Haven. It had everything you could desire and all the little extras – chocolates, toiletries, wine what more could you hope for.It has been, again, an amazing experience and we shal return!
We arrived at our Hideaway Cottage with our friends Chris and Kim to be greeted by the resident ducks and coots which was such a delight. Our cottage was perfect for two couples…extremely comfy beds, two sofas, lovely outdoor sitting area, wonderfully stocked kitchen with lots of treats in the fridge and on a platter in the lounge area. Everything was spotless. We really enjoyed our time at Stonewell. Our cottage was positioned over looking a huge lake and although because of the drought, the water was low, we were constantly entertained by the water birds and loved feeding the ducks and coots who were very friendly. A lovely quiet position with both bedrooms overlooking the grape vines. We would highly recommend this beautiful getaway.
Thankyou for posting your lovely comments. We are so glad you enjoyed the local Barossa produce and our peaceful location. We are hoping for good winter rain to top up the lakes again. We look forward to welcoming you back. Tina and Evan
We would like to say thank you so much for providing such a beautiful setting with such gorgeous cottages and special inclusions. All our friends commented on how lovely the spot was and in particular how relaxed they felt as soon as they arrived. Coming from all our busy lives at the end of the year it was such a blessing to be able to relax so quickly. We all fell in love with the ducks and I think everyone had multiple conversations with them over the few days.Ross and I stayed in the gorgeous Cupids Cottage and loved every minute of it, from breakfast in our little kitchen or out the front, to reading by the dam and even trying out the boat ( very badly ). Tina, your care in texting and calling to ensure everything was taken care of was fabulous. Thank you for your time and care.Our plan for our 25th anniversary was to spend some quality time with dear friends in a special place. Stonewell Cottages was the perfect place to do this and we had the weekend we had dreamed of. It was just perfect, thank you.Best wishes for a wonderful 2016, I am sure we will be revisiting Stonewell Cottages sometime in the future.
My wife and I wanted a quality break in quiet surroundings and the 3 nights spent in the Haven Spa Retreat exceeding our expectations. So quiet and tranquil yet it lies in the heart of the areas we wanted to visit and, therefore, driving was limited to just short journeys, returning to enjoy and relax in our accommodation in between trips. Would highly recommend. Jack & Lynn
Cupid’s cottage was a perfect place to enjoy a small honeymoon after our wedding. We loved the extra little touches in the cottage, the beautiful platter on arrival, the scenery and of course, the ducks! Thank you also to Evan for transporting us to and from Appellation for a beautiful meal. We will be recommending Stonewell to our friends and family and can’t wait to come back again. Thank you!
This was our 13th visit to Stonewell, each time is better than the last, already planning our next visit. The attention to detail is never short of amazing.
Wow – 2 nights was not long enough beautiful surrounds and all the little extras, so private. Perfect don’t change a thing we will be back.
The Hideaway Cottage was a fantastic place to relax and unwind after a busy day in the Barossa. Every detail had been taken into account and it was so easy to relax, unwind and enjoy our short stay. Feeding the ducks was a great way to start the day after a beautiful breakfast. We’ll be back!
Dear Tina and Evan, you have created a little bit of ‘heaven on earth’. Great setting, beautiful food, excellent wine, friendly ducks, tranquility and comfort at every turn. We were delighted to return for our 5th Anniversary.
Dear Tina and Evan, thankyou for a such a wonderful cottage to finish our trip ‘down under’. We’ve loved everything about the Barossa Valley and we will be back to sample more Aussie ‘stickies’. We will miss the Aussie hospitality and of course Melot and Fronti (aka Dyson) – we’ve never seen such friendly ducks!
