Ashton Retreat is an opportunity to get away and relax in the picturesque Adelaide Hills. The guest house is a modern self-contained unit with kitchen/dining and lounge areas, with separate bathroom & bedroom Queen bed. Just outside is a private patio situated under a beautiful Linden tree. Close to Cleland, Morialta and Horsnell Gully Conservation Parks with many walking trails, as well as the Heysen Trail. Perfect location for the Tour Downunder. Great temporary escape from many City Festivals in Mad March. Local wineries are easily accessible and its a short drive to the Barossa and Eden Valleys to the north, and McLaren Vale and Fleurieu Peninsula to the south. Just 20 minutes to the city centre. Suits couples looking to take a break for a weekend or longer, or singles and couples looking to base themselves close to the City or Hills for longer stays to attend conferences or explore the region.

The kitchen features an electric oven, gas cooktop with rangehood, microwave, refridgerator and plenty of bench space for food preparation. The area is heated by a large combustion heater which will quickly heat the area in the depths of winter. Welcoming comfy lounge chairs await with LCD TV and DVD player available. The queen size bed offers a private valley view, and the new bathroom features a shower, wash basin and toilet. Outside in the sheltered garden, enjoy an al fresco setting with lovely views. The Retreat has a minimal environmental footprint - rainwater is harvested on the property, wastewater is treated on the property, a recycling facility is available and a roof mounted solar array feeds energy into the grid. Minimum stay 2 nights. No pets or children non-walking babies excepted.

Summer in the Hills

In summer, the Adelaide Hills are always a few degrees cooler than the city - enjoy all the benefits of being close to the centre of the city while experiencing the quiet rural setting of the Ashton Retreat. Explore the Hills and beyond - Clare, the Barossa and McLaren Vale are all within a comfortable one days driving distance. For nature lovers, the Retreat offers many regular and irregular visitors - kangaroos, koalas, echidnas and microbats feeding at sunset - as well as a huge range of native birds in habitating the space - from weebills flitting about in the shrubs to eagles gliding overhead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Cottage We loved our 2 night stay. The cottage is fabulous, spotlessly clean and the wood combustion heater made it cosy on the chilly winter's nights. The cottage is close to cafes and wineries but in a semi-bushland setting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely spot We had a lovely stay at Ashton Retreat, the view from the deck is beautiful, of various trees. The interior was clean and comfortable, plenty of space for 2. The bed was comfortable too

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect haven for two! We cannot recommend this accommodation highly enough. It is beautifully presented with all the comforts and conveniences you might wish for on a gorgeous Adelaide hills property with fabulous shade trees and adjacent heritage bushland in which to stroll, picnic and relax. Lovely villages, walking trails, boutique wineries and dining options are readily available nearby, and Adelaide's fabulous market is only a 20-minute drive away. Andrew and Kate were perfect hosts; friendly yet respectful of our privacy, and generous in offering extra crockery for Christmas Day and sharing some of the delicious berries that they grow on their property. Treat yourself with a stay at this idyllic Adelaide hills haven - we're so glad we did!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Retreat The website photos do not do this place justice. The setting is gorgeous, private and peacefully quiet. The trees & hills an oasis of green. Interior decor & colours very tastefully done. The companionship of Nell & Serge (the owner's dogs) an unexpected bonus. Will be back and for a longer stay next time.
