Carol & Geoff Matters invite you to enjoy a relaxed stay at the Spalding "Country bakehouse". Our century old bakehouse residence has been tastefully renovated, blending antiques and modern furnishings for style & comfort.

Country bakehouse is a unique historic Residence & Bakery full of history & charm.

Spalding is central to the wine region of Clare & the historic township of Burra & provides a base for day trips to the lower Flinders Ranges. Walkers and bike riding enthusiasts are welcome as the Mawson and Heysen trails meet at Spalding.

Uniquely situated by the Broughton River, Spalding hosts annual fly fishing competitions and a two night booking includes a "catch and release" permit for those who wish to try their skill at trout or cod fishing.

Continental Breakfast provisions are included in the tariff and a well equipped, country kitchen and gas BBQ are provided for your convenience.

Families welcome

The Country bakehouse is an ideal place for romantic couples to share a weekend, families to stay for short breaks & holidays or trail walkers to spend a comfortable night after a brisk walk on the Heysen & Mawson Trails. We provide a "home away from home" with lots of interesting reading materials, family board games, DVD's and a large digital screen with satellite TV.

Attached to the residence, in the old bakehouse is an extra teen retreat room. This room is ideal for extra family members with a queen and two single beds provided. Two families of 4 can comfortably share weekend accommodation with 3 queen beds, two single beds and a sofa bed.

Why not take a weekend break, go fishing or photograph the Broughton River, visit wineries or coffee shops in the Clare Valley or explore dugouts and underground tunnels at the historic mining town of Burra.

Travel North through Jamestown to visit the Railway Museum at Peterborough or South to the Historic town of Mintaro to lose yourself in the Maze or make a visit to Martindale Hall. Because we are central to so many Historic towns we are able to provide a comfortable retreat at the end of a day exploring the Mid North of SA.

Fishing & Small Town Experience

The Country bakehouse is situated in the small town of Spalding,178km north of Adelaide and on the fringe of the Clare valley. The Heysen & Mawson trails meet at Spalding and we have excellent sporting facilities including a Summer swimming pool, oval, tennis courts, parks and playground. There are historic Churches a Post Office and Primary School. The General store and Barbed Wire Hotel are open for take-a-way food & drinks 7 days and meals are available Thursday- Sunday at the Country Spalding Hotel.

The Fresh Water river flows through Spalding to join the Broughton downstream. Visitors can enjoy the river scenery and your accommodation includes a "catch & release" permit for trout fishing enthusiasts. You may not catch a trout or a cod but you could enjoy a day out along the river exploring the pools & why not take a picnic on a Spring day.

Spalding proudly hosts the SA fly fishing competitions where Australia's trout fishing competitors meet to compete annually. The Bundaleer reservoir will be opening in 2016 for Recreational fishing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely and very spacious property We had a lovely stay and Carol (the owner) made sure everything was ready for our arrival. She even contacted us to say we had left one of our children's teddies behind. It is a charming old property with lots of space and made a good base to explore Clare Valley region before heading on further north.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely house and wonderful hostess The pictures of this house do not do it justice. Beautifully presented with an eye for detail used. Everything you may need was available. The main bedroom with its little sitting room/sunroom was an unexpected and pleasant surprise. Great place to stay. Hoping to get back to do some trout fishing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This B&B is lovely. Beautiful furniture and furnishings. We were very comfortable and our little dog was made very welcome. He loved exploring the big backyard. Fantastic old fashioned kitchen was like stepping back in time to childhood. Lovely host who showed us around the property and the old bakery section. Will definitely go back.
