With sole occupancy of this unique cottage and gardens, the peaceful and tranquil setting will help you relax and unwind - listen to the sounds of nature - birds and chooks.
Generous breakfast provisions, both for cooked and continental are provided with an assortment of spreads, teas, coffees and other treats. Wine, port and sherry together with chocs are included. While ideally suited to a couple the cottage will accommodate four at a squeeze. The 2nd bedroom with 2 single beds is accessed from the front veranda - a cosy retreat. Foldaway bed or cot available on request for one child only. Please check with proprietor re suitability of the second room.
You can enjoy the Barossa products in the large rustic garden, or in the cellar/bakehouse which in times past was the "The North Para Bakery".

The deep antique claw foot bath resurrected from the garden is just the place to soak up the surroundings and to relax and unwind at the end of the day, - bath bubbles, candles, bath robes provided.
There is a wide range of literature including many books on the Barossa and the early pioneer families. As many of guests have commented - "a memorable stay". Come and try for yourself.

Norma's Place is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect stay in a character-filled cottage From the moment we first pulled into the driveway, we knew we’d made the right choice in booking Norma’s Place. The cottage is perfectly located a short walk from some of the best restaurants and cafes in Tanunda, yet nestles quietly in its own private little oasis. The cottage is full of character and the garden is absolutely beautiful - I only wish we’d had an extra day or two to make the most of a relaxing breakfast outdoors and a chance to make friends with the chickens. The cottage is beautifully provisioned, with a huge amount of attention to detail and very generous supplies provided. I can’t think of a single thing that would have made the stay more enjoyable. Fay even went out of her way to make sure that vegan-friendly breakfast provisions and treats were available, and did an exceptional job! A perfect stay and very highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We've been to Norma's place twice, both times to stay after attending weddings in the Barossa Valley. Both times we have been delighted. The historic cottage is beautiful, and has been beautifully decorated inside. It's so much nicer than staying at a hotel. The bed is really comfortable and there are heaps of breakfast provisions supplied. We love the garden too. It's a very private getaway with a difference.
