This rustically chic cottage hails back to the 1890s (one of the first in the region), beautifully restored and achingly romantic. Surrounded by the Adelaide Hills wine region and overlooking an old apple orchard, the two-bedroom cottage is like stepping back in time. Sip wine by the wood fireplace, and cook a hearty meal on the vintage wood-fired Aga (stove). But nothing quite beats the outdoor clawfoot bath that overlooks the hills - a unique country experience that is the jewel of romantic getaways in Adelaide.
