We decided to take a winter mini break up in the Hills, hoping to find a quaint, picuresque location where we could retreat inside and cosy up with an open fireplace. Even better that we could take our family (2 dogs) with us! We sure got a great weekend... freezing temperatures, hail, heavy rain and even snow at one point!...

This is first class accommodation in the Adelaide Hills. Blink and you'll miss Basket Range on the road to Lobethal, but Hillgrove is just down the road, overlooking a beautiful valley. First impressions are everything and entering this house is a treat. It's set up so well, and a bit of exploration reveals the very generous supplies that have been...

As we market romance, we decided to see what we could learn from these multi award winners. On arrival at this gorgeous place, we found a fridge full of local produce. Cheeses, Maggie Beer pate,...

We've just returned from our 8th visit to Hillgrove House, & we again return home with beautiful memories. Who would believe that 40 minutes from our home, there's such an idyllic setting with a gorgeous historic cottage that's been restored with sensitivity & class.

Wonderful, peaceful, relaxing, romantic and beautiful. Every little luxury you can think of is generously provided. I can completely recommend staying here, we had a wonderful time the first time we stayed at Waratah Cottage, and I have just booked another weekend there. You wont regret staying here... you'll just wish you could stay longer.
