Stonewell Cottages and Vineyards is a boutique waterfront retreat set on an expansive private vineyard estate in the heart of the Barossa. Only 1 hour drive from Adelaide and a short drive from the town of Tanunda, the accommodation offers peace, privacy and seclusion in an idyllic location.
The two retreats and two cottages, surrounded by vineyard, all with lake views, feature cosy wood fires and luxury spa baths. The well equipped kitchens are stocked with fresh local produce for self-preparation breakfasts. Enjoy serene water views, still tranquil evenings and stunning vineyard sunsets.
The Haven Spa Retreats, the Hideaway Cottage and Cupids Cottage are hidden away amongst the vines of Stonewell Vineyards, our 103 acre (42ha) vineyard property, overlooking a picturesque, private lake. It’s a tranquil world away from stress and hectic schedules, but just a short drive from wineries and restaurants, the ideal place to escape and rejuvenate.
Sleep amid the vines and wake up to a long, lazy breakfast. Unwind in your candlelit spa, de-stress with an indulgent in-room massage. Feed the friendly ducks, row to the island gazebo, relax on the sunlounges by the lake, take a guided vineyard tour around the property or a leisurely bike ride along the vine lined country roads. Enjoy a gourmet platter or BBQ in your private outdoor courtyard overlooking the lake. Sip a wine made from the vines surrounding your cottage as you watch the sunset over the water.
The best of the Barossa is on your doorstep; visit nearby Seppelstfield Road for boutique cellar doors, historic winery tours; premium dining at Appellation, Fino and Hentley Farm and daily cooking demonstrations at Maggie Beers Farm shop.
