Luxurious 1 bedroom cottage in the vines: Walk to cellar doors & restaurants

About Friederike Scheppach
Spending 25+ years in the corporate world, it was time to make a true 'sea, tree & wine' change - leaving Sydney behind and choosing McLaren Vale as our new home. McLaren Vale is unique amongst all the Australian wine regions, offering easy access from a capital city, being along a stunning coast line and yet, being surrounded by the Mount Lofty Range, being being easy to explore.
Friederike Scheppach purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Friederike Scheppach chose Blewitt Springs
Settling on McLaren Vale for our tree change was the easy part - finding the right property was way more difficult and it took us about 4 years to find the perfect place. We looked for something that encompasses the beauty of McLaren Vale, showcases the hills, the vineyards, has easy access to cellar doors, restaurants - but is far enough away from the township and main roads south that it is truly rural and the only noise you will hear is the birds.
What makes this Cottage unique
Whilst only 5km outside of McLaren Vale town, it feels like a world away. We believe Karawatha Cottages is unique in offering - hill side location with stunning views across vineyards and onto the Mount Lofty Ranges - each cottage features fully equipped kitchen, rainwater shower heads, luxury Sheridan linen and towels and a private deck to enjoy the views - within a leisurely stroll of less than 500m you will find 3 cellar doors, one with a full service restaurant; or, if you are bit more energetic, ask for our mud maps for our very own wine walking trail that takes past vineyards to 5 cellar doors and 2 restaurants

SUCH A BEAUTIFUL PLACE
Cannot wait to go back to "Unwind" Cottage. Was not long enough! Was so cozy by the fire and the serenity was perfect. So nice to get away from the city.
Thanks Linda - love it to hear how much you enjoyed your short stay with us. A glass of red in front of the fire are the best way to cure the winter blues and relax. Looking forward to having you back.
Modern and new
Excellent, spacious and friendly. Very new facilities with beautiful views and very close to mclaren vale wineries and restaurants
Thanks for your great review Orr. Very glad to hear that you have enjoyed it all, in particular the views across the vineyards and hills - one of the main reasons for us to purpose build the cottages here. Hope we can welcome you back some time soon - so much more to explore.
