About the property

Built for couples ,Ideal for families,this unique house delivers country, luxury and charm.Pronounced Roo chocs,this fully self contained house is located in the Polish Hill River Region of the Clare Valley in South Australia.

Set on rural land and surrounded by native flora it provides a peaceful and authentic natural landscape with access to safe walking tracks that create the illusion of being far from civilization.

10 minutes from Clare and 4 minutes from the historic village of Mintaro it is centrally located to enjoy the flavours and colors of the Clare Valley.A perfect step off for lovers of fine food,wine and great companionship.

Our little house has been a labour of love and incorporates our focus on the environment, recycling and fun. With its domed roof, polished floorboards and modern amenities it is a statement in character and blending of the eras.

The luxurious queen bed on the mezzanine floor creates a cosy retreat.

The beautiful Mintaro Slate used in the outdoor dining area and the impressive slate table complete the link to the heritage town of Mintaro.

Full provisions and elegant touches create a peaceful and relaxing place to begin your journey of the beautiful Clare Valley.

We ask that ,because of its rural ,open setting that you leave your pets at home as the farm type fencing prevents us from being able to keep your pet safe.

The Hill Family have built and fashioned this unique house for people to grab a moment from their busy lives and enjoy our beautiful valley

We hope you will be left surprised and delighted by Ruciochs and thank you for considering staying with us .We think you will love it.

A perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

Such a great stay in a very comfy little house. Everything we needed, super clean and just disappointed that we couldn't stay longer. A very warm welcome from Pat and his wife, the dogs and pet sheep Lucy. We will be back!

Lovely cottage within driving distance of wineries

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults and 2 kids) enjoyed our stay at the cottage. The continental breakfast provisions were generous and the chocolates (kids and adults), wine and port (adults of course!) were enjoyed and appreciated by all. The reverse cycle heater kept us warm and the movies provided helped while away the time when the weather was a little cold and wet. Self catering is easy with full kitchen facilities, BBQ and a Woolworths located in Clare. The cottage is within easy driving distance of the towns of Clare and Mintaro and some excellent wineries.

Owner's Response: Thank you Stephanie. We do find it a handy location in that it is very rural, but close to the convenience of shops, wineries and things to do. So glad you were comfortable and relaxed - that's our job done! cheers Lorelie

Comfy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our two night stay. The bed was extremely comfy and the shower was hot and strong. Continental breakfast provisions were very generous. Everything was in good repair, clean and extremely well presented. Internet was not 100% reliable as was the choice in movies on offer.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Ruciochs B&B was beautifully presented and very clean. The owners included some nice little touches to make our stay very welcoming, a great movie selection, wifi, a bottle of wine and chocolates on arrival, nice breakfast provisions. The bedroom loft was lovely and cosy .We were there in the middle of winter so the place had to stay heated otherwise it became very cold very quickly.. The location is great, close to lots of vineyards and the town of Clare. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting the Clare Valley

Owner's Response: Thank you Julia, very glad you enjoyed your stay. We do what we can to keep our guests comfortable during the chilly Clare Valley winters, good wine and chocolate always help. The location is beautiful, one can never tire of looking at the countryside.
