We recently stayed here for two nights in late November and loved our stay!
The cottage is beautifully restored and as you can see from the photos on their website is surrounded by vineyards and bush. Being an old restored cottage if you are tall you may need to duck through the doorways, but it is well worth it to enjoy the cottage charm.
The pin code entry was excellent as we arrived late at night after a long day at a friends wedding and didn't have to worry about a key.
My wife and I enjoyed the sausages, bacon, eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms and hash browns for breakfast both mornings, with plenty of pans to cook it all with and an excellent gas stove top to do so on or there is also a BBQ out the back if you prefer.
The bed was very comfy and there were plenty of pillows. We loved the cupboard in the room and the sideboard next to the stove in the kitchen and felt they were a perfect fit for the cottage.
We enjoyed a glass of the complementary wine while reading at the table and chairs out the back overlooking the creek and the bush, before heading in to the comfy lounge as the wind picked up.
Couldn't think of a better place to stay in McLaren Vale if B&B Cottages are your thing.
