Bed & Breakfast


Approximately 100km north of Adelaide, nestled in the Skilly hills, just 2 km’s from the township of Watervale in the beautiful Clare Valley, Hughes Park Cottage offers private self contained accommodation.

The Award Winning private two-bedroom cottage originates from 1845 and is surrounded by beautiful vines and historic sheep farming country – perfect for a stroll and a photographer’s delight. The cottage is family friendly and children are welcome. Snuggle up in front of the open fireplace in winter, you will feel miles away from the stress and hustle of life in your Clare Valley sanctuary yet a stone’s throw from many wineries. Kookaburras chuckling at dusk as the sun sets over the Hills. The views often referred to a scene out of a Hans Heysen’s painting.

Staying here you may even see Andrew rounding up a mob of sheep with working dogs out the window. Wildlife and Birdlife is spectacular, sheep grazing, roo’s, deer, kookaburras and much more. It’s a bird watchers paradise.

It is only 3km’s to the famous Riesling Trail too. Walks can be taken to the top of Mt Oakden which spans views over vineyards from Clare to Auburn and in the other direction from Balaklava Plains to St Vincent’s Gulf.

The cottage

Enjoy a stay at one of South Australia’s finest tourist getaways.

The cottage verandah is very inviting with its directors chairs perfectly positioned to take in the afternoon sun. The front door opens to a welcoming lounge with large comfortable sofas, perfect for relaxing on and a large open fire place. Knowing how much everyone enjoys an open fire, there is a seemingly endless supply of firewood right outside the front door.

Guests then walk through to a large dining and kitchen area with floor to ceiling windows, which make the most of the Hans Heysen views of the magnificent gums which lie beyond. The kitchen is furnished with all the essentials – microwave, stove, oven, large fridge and plenty of bench space to cook up a storm!

Sleeping 4 people the cottage comprises a main bedroom with a Queen Size bed and the guest bedroom has two King single beds. The bedrooms all have fresh decor and fluffy pillows with thick goose down quilts and electric blankets take care of guests on chilly nights.

Two toilets and a lovely white bathroom complete the property. In the summer, guests can make use of the Weber barbecue under the side verandah and enjoy a dinner among the gum trees while listening to the laughing kookaburras overhead.
