"This truly is a special place. We take with us fond memories of beauty, peace, creativity and hospitality. A wonderful Australian experience which we will never forget - truly the highlight of our Australian Holiday."Guest Comment - Gum Tree Cottage

"Had we known before we left Canada that there was a 'Lavender Fields', we would have changed our vacation plans. How could we have known how comfortably we would nestle in to its peace and charm and how much we would love to stay here longer. When the stresses of our active city life beset us, we will turn to our memories of the Adelaide Hills for peace. Thank you for sharing your beautiful corner of the world with us and for your generous hospitality." Guest Comment

"Superb! The Villa is exquisitely presented. Every detail has been thought of. Thank you for what was a very relaxing stay." Guest Comment

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulons spot We loved this cottage, loved the cows who came to visit, laughed when our dog went and hid inside, frightened by the size of our visitors

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Romantic Heaven in the Hills Beautiful is the only way to describe our stay. The accommodation took our breath away and then we had the chance to catch it and unwind in our little oasis.
