Breaking News! We're thrilled that two of our three cottages are finalists in the Holidaying with Dogs 5-Paw Pet-friendly accommodation awards for 2019/20!
Three charming, secluded cottages located well away from one another amongst rolling hills, trees and creeks.
Dog-friendly Wuthering Heights is a beautiful 35ha property just 6km north of Clare in South Australia's lovely Clare Valley.
There's quaint Cathy's Cottage that sleeps two. With a front verandah and back, half-covered courtyard overlooking the bush, it's an idyllic, country retreat.
Romantic Glen Morris, nestled by the creek beneath ancient gums, sleeps four. It has a cosy breakfast parlour, French doors opening onto the back courtyard, and an elevated verandah with magnificent country views.
And rustic, quirky Bronte Manor, perched on the hill, sleeps up to ten, in four bedrooms on either side of a baronial living room with open fireplace, and with a large, well-stocked kitchen opening onto a slate terrace that enjoys magnificent, undisturbed valley views.
All cottages have either an inside open fire or pot-belly stove, as well as an outdoor fire pit and BBQ.
And all visitors are welcomed with a complimentary bottle of local wine or decanter of port, together with generous breakfast provisions in the fridge: local free-range eggs, bacon, tomatoes, fresh bread from the bakery, milk, butter and toppings for toast.
Located several kilometres away from the Main North Road, you'll wake up to the sound of birds, and can enjoy the unhurried pace of the country with a visit to one of the many wineries, restaurants and coffee shops in the area, or enjoy a meandering walk through the trees to visit the alpacas.
Note: Beds are fully made-up, firewood, and breakfast provisions for 2 days are provided, and dogs can enjoy plenty of off-leash fun!
"I ...... listened to the soft wind breathing through the grass; and wondered how anyone could ever imagine unquiet slumbers for the sleepers in that quiet earth." Emily Brontë,
Enjoy the peace and seclusion of this grand, yet rustic, mud brick manor. Perched on high ground with 360-degree views of gentle, undulating countryside and trees, Bronte Manor exudes charm and character.
A secluded, romantic getaway with exquisite views from the front verandah or the enclosed back courtyard - perfect for housing your four-legged friends while you explore the valley.
