Wonderful weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

Spacious yet cosy, lovely beds, ample breakfast provisions & a wood fire - what more could you ask for? Five girls stayed for 2 nights to see some of the sights of the Clare Valley - all agreed this was a fantastic find. Lovely hosts too!

Wonderful comfy cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is located in the historic town of Mintaro. It was beautifully presented, very comfortable, very quiet, and contained all modern conveniences. Easy access to the Clare Valley and its wineries, and the historic town of Burra. We met the owners who were friendly, and helpful, and were genuinely concerned that we had a great stay. We would definitely stay in this cottage again when we return to the area.

Cosy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Ellenor Ivy Cottage is a gorgeous, well-equipped B & B from which we enjoyed a 2 night Clare Valley get-away. The weather was wintery, but we were very cosy with a wood fire and electric blankets. Not much was open in Mintaro, but we were delighted with the nearby towns' hotels for dinners and wineries for lunches. We had an excellent stay.
