Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous ole' world couples retreat There is absolutely nothing more you could ask for at Norma's Place. Beautifully kept old home with a touch of Nannas house. Gorgeous fireplace with plenty of wood to keep us toasty warm. Wall heater in the bedroom to keep away the winter chill. Special extra touches of wine, port and chocolate. Plenty of breakfast goodies too. The bath was very relaxing and super hot water. Perfect couples getaway with the historical charm,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Took us back in time Beautiful and well kept property. Loved all the touches Fay has thought all, chocolate, wine, juice, candles. The house is small but delicate and beautiful. Thankfully for the heaters in each room. Note there is a shower at this property but it is in the outside laundry. Staying here made our stay so much more special and fun. Loved that we could walk home after a few wines at dinner and had our on space to chill out in.

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 4 out of 5 by from a lovely cottage, well equipped and comfortable. A little tricky to keep the mozzies outside at times.
