About the property

* Please use this listing if you wish to make a GROUP BOOKING to book the WHOLE PROPERTY. The rate displayed here is for booking the entire property for 10 people. Please use our other separate listings to book individual rooms only. *

Stonewell Cottages and Vineyards is a boutique waterfront retreat set on an expansive private vineyard estate in the heart of the Barossa. Only 1 hour drive from Adelaide and a short drive from the town of Tanunda, the accommodation offers peace, privacy and seclusion in an idyllic location.

The two suites and two cottages, surrounded by vineyard, all with lake views, feature cosy wood fires and luxury spa baths. The well equipped kitchens are stocked with fresh local produce for self-preparation breakfasts. Enjoy serene water views, still tranquil evenings and stunning vineyard sunsets.

The Haven Spa Suites, the Hideaway Cottage and Cupids Cottage are hidden away amongst the vines of Stonewell Vineyards, our 103 acre (42ha) vineyard property, overlooking a picturesque, private lake. It’s a tranquil world away from stress and hectic schedules, but just a short drive from wineries and restaurants, the ideal place to escape and rejuvenate.

Sleep amid the vines and wake up to a long, lazy breakfast. Unwind in your candlelit spa, de-stress with an indulgent in-room massage. Feed the friendly ducks, row to the island gazebo, relax on the sunlounges by the lake, take a guided vineyard tour around the property or a leisurely bike ride along the vine lined country roads. Enjoy a gourmet platter or BBQ in your private outdoor courtyard overlooking the lake. Sip a wine made from the vines surrounding your cottage as you watch the sunset over the water.

The best of the Barossa is on your doorstep; visit nearby Seppelstfield Road for boutique cellar doors, historic winery tours; premium dining at Appellation, Fino and Hentley Farm and daily cooking demonstrations at Maggie Beers Farm shop.

Escape, rejuvenate at Stonewell Cottages and Vineyards.

Not good value for money

  • 3 of 5

Good property but over priced for what it's offering. The size of the cottage is too small for $550 per night.

Owner's Response: Thankyou Omar for submitting your review. As the name suggests, the buildings are cottage sized, not houses. The size of the Hideaway Cottage is larger than many hotel suites or apartments. Internal floor Size is 50sqm (this does not include outdoor verandahs and private outdoor courtyard space). Our guests can also enjoy the extensive gardens and grounds and the peace and privacy of our vineyard, lakefront location. Extra activities such as rowing on the lake, fishing and walks around the 103 acre property can also be enjoyed. We are also located close by to several premium restaurants and numerous cellar door wineries. Thankyou for rating our location as 5 stars! Our rates include great extras such as a bottle of Barossa wine, decanter of Peter Lehmann port, Barossa Decadence handmade fudge and biscuits and our generous breakfast inclusions focus on providing high quality local produce such as Schutz double smoked bacon, Barossa Valley Cheese Co Halloumi, and wood oven baked Apex bakery bread. The rate paid was based on weekend rate for 3 persons, so rates are less for just 2 people. Our guests can take advantage of our last minute rates available directly via our website 30 days prior to arrival which offer 20% discount mid-week and 10% discount for weekends. Special repeat guest rates are also offered.

This is such a special place. We stayed in Cupid's cottage & fell in love with it. A quaint little cottage, surrounded by a vineyard, lake & cute ducks. A very peaceful & intimate setting. We had such a beautiful stay here. A getaway we won't forget. Thanks Tina & Evan!

  • 5 of 5

Stonewell Cottages was a wonderful experience and the memory of waking up to a view of the lake with a mist hanging over it, a hot air balloon gently gliding over it, the ducks waking up and floating on the lake, will remain with me forever. One of the most beautiful scenes I have seen anywhere in the world and I have travelled to over 45 countries. The area around the cottages with the dam and ducks and other wildlife was absolutely breathtaking especially in the morning and evening. The cottage was spotless and extremely clean, cosy and comfortable. Many provisions and treats were left (paid $AU690 for 2 nights 1st May 2011). The king bed is superbly comfortable and all bed linen & pillows very clean. The spa bath a wonderful extra treat. Meticulous attention to detail. I would recommend the Stonewell Cottages highly. I would have liked to stay longer than 2 nights.

It was the best romantic getaway for a special birthday, just the two of us. The cottage really exceeded our expectations. Everything was top of the range, cleanliness, equipment, the spa, breakfast provisions, the lake, the surrounding. It was one of the best things we did in the last years.
