Rated 5 out of 5 by from Faultless Accomodation Thank you to our hosts, Helen and Gerald. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend away at Ellenor Ivy Cottage. Every detail has been thought of to make our stay relaxing and comfortable. Especially loved the fire and the stream out the back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cosy and comfortable Ellenor Ivy Cottage is a gorgeous, well-equipped B & B from which we enjoyed a 2 night Clare Valley get-away. The weather was wintery, but we were very cosy with a wood fire and electric blankets. Not much was open in Mintaro, but we were delighted with the nearby towns' hotels for dinners and wineries for lunches. We had an excellent stay.
