Guest Book & Visitor Reviews

Peaceful. Tranquil. Don't second guess yourself. Just do it! The cottage is beautiful. Absolutely everything you're going to want is there, even things you didn't realise you wanted. The experience was magical. Tina is exceptional and extremely helpful and will go the extra mile. This was the best stay we've ever had. Thank you so much to the Stonewell team for making this so very magical for us.

A great location by the dam, very peaceful and relaxing, and a perfect location to visit the amazing Barossa Valley. The accommodation was perfect. Every was carefully thought out and supplies were amazing, even down to the extra batteries for the TV remote. Lots of great communication and information. We would definitely stay again.

Thoughtful and comfortable accommodation set in a picturesque location nestled in the Barossa Valley. Close to all the wineries as well as other great locally produced food. We spent 3 nights as part of the winter warmer package and were provided with everything you could possibly need to make our stay feel just like being at home. Everything you could want was amply provided for, dinner for night one was supplied and we had lots of treats as well as a locally produced bottle of wine. Very generous and great quality. The extras organised for us as part of the package were also a delight in particular our visit to Seppelts to taste our birth year of aged tawny port. A memorable experience.

The cottage was lovely, had everything we needed. The invisible service was excellent. All of thing activities we did on our stay wineries, lunches and dinners we got the info from Stonewell's website. Highly recommended place to stay!
Georgina Wiliams, Hope Island, QLD
A lovely location with every possible detail thought of by the owners. The cottage was spotless, food supplies excellent and plentiful and our dinner reservation, transport and bike hire were all coordinated for us seamlessly. A truly beautiful venue for a special celebration or just a quiet break. Highly recommended.

Wow!!! These cottages were exactly what we had been looking for, from the setting around the lake, the spa, the amazing produce in the fridge and pantry and the kindness and hospitality from Tina and Evan. My only regret is that we didn’t stay longer but we will definitely be back! Thank you

We had an amazing stay at Stonewell Cottages, the location and cottage itself was amazing. Communication with Tina regarding how to get to the cottage and if there was anything we would like during our stay was great. She made everything run very smoothly and the whole trip was taken care of before we even arrived. The cottage was clean, welcoming and well provisioned. The view from the cottage is great and we really enjoyed having the firepit outside and the log burner inside. The provisions in the cottage were fantastic, we really enjoyed sampling the local produce on offer. The breakfast package and snacks were both delicious, with a great selection of local wines available in the cottage as well. I wanted to propose to my Girlfriend, Tina was able able to help me when I was looking for the perfect area to do it. We loved our stay and Stonewell will always be a special place for us! We are looking forward to our next stay. Thank you

Superb. One word. Just totally peaceful and so relaxing. Located in the middle of a vineyard. We were made to feel very 'at home'. Lots of high quality delicious food provided to us on our package and an in-house massage. Walks around the dam, breakfast provided for us and a separate brekkie package for the ducks... too cute! We hope to be back in the cooler weather to take advantage of the wood burning fire inside and the enticing fire pit outside. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

A beautiful place to stay for a restful break in the Barossa Valley. The host was very attentive and there were lots of provisions left for us for breakfasts. Highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed at the Hideaway Cottage for 4 nights on our first trip to the Barossa Valley. And we are so glad we did! What a wonderful cottage to call home while you explore the region. Nothing is far away but the location is so peaceful and beautiful. And the provisions were beyond all expectations! After one night, my husband said "We have to make this an annual retreat". I certainly hope we can. I left some things behind and Tina was very quick to contact me and ensure they were returned.
