We spent three nights at Peppermint Farm Cottage with another couple and had a very enjoyable stay. The cottage has been renovated in the country style which appears appropriate for its heritage. Paul gave us a very warm welcome and thoughtfully checked once during the weekend whether we needed anything to assist our stay and offered to change our towels, which was a very nice touch for a self-contained property.
The breakfast provisions were very generous.
I was curious about the review I read that was written in May and the comments about a few bugs. I think the reviewer was unfair. McClaren Vale is the countryside and beautiful, especially in the springtime. Forget about the odd little slow moving creature and just enjoy the quiet countryside, singing birds and the surrounding vines. Go for a walk or run along the nearby Shiraz Trail that passes between the vines, or just enjoy a drive to the various vineyards and restaurants in the area.
We all had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay.
