Clayton Bay is one of South Australia's best kept secrets. Just over an hours drive from Adelaide it is easily accessible for a weekend away.
Experience the relaxation as you wind down away from the hustle and bustle of some other holiday destinations, while still only a short drive away from the southern surf beaches and local wineries.
The local boat ramp and jetty are great if you want to get out on the water. Not as busy as higher up the river and an interesting area to explore by boat.
Birdlife abounds in the area from the front porch of the cottage to the waters of the lake.
Take the dog for a walk on the trails around Clayton and experience views to the Coorong and Goolwa.
Throw a line off the local Jetty and watch the sunset over Goolwa.
Spend the day collecting fine produce and wine from the fleurieu then cook up a storm in the well appointed kitchen.
Relax on the front veranda after the days fun and enjoy the shelter away from the seabreeze with a glass of wine from Langhorne Creek.
In winter you can snuggle up in front of the open fire. (firewood supplied)
Sails Cafe is a short stroll away for coffee and meals.
They have a great menu for breakfast and lunch every day and evening meals on the weekend, with live music on weekends as well.
Well mannered pets are more than welcome with plenty of room to run in the fenced yard.
