We are not a self-contained cottage.

Instead we offer a traditional English style hosted bed and breakfast where you are a guest in our home.

We offer the unique experience of staying and dinning with friendly locals who take pride in sharing their home and making your experience memorable. Definitely distinctive from the run-of-the mill bed and breakfast accommodation on offer.

Our 44 acre property includes a 10 acre vineyard and a 20 acre natural bush reserve. From the top of the reserve, which has been set aside for native animals, birds and flora, there are fabulous views of the valley to photograph. For those more energetic, enjoying walking or bike riding, the famous Riesling Trail passes through our property a mere 50 metres from our back door.

Being local we have a wealth of local knowledge that we are happy to share and help guests get the most out of their stay.


For those after ‘must have’ extras at a reasonable price guests have a choice of:

- a delicious homemade picnic

- experiencing home-made dinners, inside or alfresco eg pizza or a barbeque

- a glass of bubbles and canapés watching the sunset

- bikes for hire just in case you decide to ride instead of drive to the wineries

Please contact us to price one or all of the above.


As dog owners we know how hard it is to leave your dear canine family member at home so why not bring your dog along for the fun. We have an enclosed yard to keep your dog safe and provide bedding if needed.

Entrance to our property is via Horrocks Highway, 11kms south of Clare.

Our address is 7647 Horrocks Highway, half way between the townships of Watervale and Penwortham. As yet we do not have a sign with our business name so look for the driveway number. Allow 1.5 hours drive if you are coming from Adelaide.

Right in the heart of the Clare Valley wine region it's only 5-10 minutes’ drive north to Clare as well as some of Australia’s top wineries including Pikes, Mitchell’s, Kilikanoon, Crabtree, Annie’s Lane, Knappsteins and Taylors.

Horrocks Highway that passes through Auburn Leasingham, Watervale, Penwortham, and Seven Hill to Clare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and cosy cottage beside vineyard We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Legless Dog. Cottage is well appointed and beautifully furnished with comfy king size bed and lounge in bedroom and very efficient wood heating.Shared bathroom and lounge with hostess, 2 toilets.2 gentle and well behaved dogs in the house were delightful.Sara is a generous host with great breakfasts provided and option of evening meal (additional cost) was a bonus. The cottage is located beside a vineyard with Reisling Bike/walk trail at back gate and acres of bush to wander about. The cottage is set back from the main road and very quiet.It is very convenient to many wineries,Sevenhill and Martindale Hall at Mintaro is 10 minutes away.
