“Richard and Jan's place is a real find! Beautifully located, decorated and equipped, it's a perfect spot to explore the area, or as a stop off point on the way to or from Kangaroo Island. Richard and Jan are super friendly and helpful, and their dog Jock is also a delight. We only were there for one night- our only regret is that we didn't stay longer!”

Chloe….February 2017

Beautiful idyllic setting, very clean, hospitable and generous accessories to help you settle in. Thank you!

Susannah….February 2017

What a beautiful place! Very comfortable and private with gorgeous gardens, a stunning view and lovely hosts. Thank you for having us

Jack & Emily…February 2017

My mum and I stayed at Richards and Jans for one night before going to kangaroo island. We had the most beautiful stay and the most beautiful night sleep (so quiet) jock the dog and frank the cat made the experience even more enjoyable. The apartment and surroundings were absolutely idyllic and we are already kicking ourselves that we couldn't stay for longer. The complimentary treats and home comforts were an excellent plus to finish our beautiful stay. Thankyou. Lots of love. Emily and Joanna xx


Richard's place is a splendid little getaway. Absolutely scenic view, and a lovely place to relax away from the city by oneself, with a partner or a friend. Definitely recommend!

Josh…January 2017

Thanks to Richard & Jan on being great hosts! Enjoyed the company of Jock also! Beautiful property, great people and great accommodation for 2!

Lauchlan…January 2017

Richard's place was an absolute pleasure to stay at. We were greeted by both Richard and his wife who were lovely to chat to and the place itself was modern, clean and very comfortable. We very much enjoyed walking around the property in the afternoon and taking in the incredible views. We wish we could've stayed longer!

Gillian…November 2016

We loved this location and setting. It's picturesque and the BnB was everything we expected - all the comforts, gorgeous furniture and all very thoughtfully laid out. The BnB was extremely clean, comfy and we really enjoyed every moment. Thankyou Richard and Jan.

Victoria....September 2016

Met by a friendly host who showed us to the barn/turned cottage. Bright clean colours, a comfortable bed, great shower, supplies in the fridge, and all in a lively rural setting.

Sam....September 2016 · ?

We loved our stay at Watson Park B&B! Richard was a lovely host, welcoming us on arrival and showing us all the features of the property. The property was exactly as pictured and described, beautifully decorated and very clean and cozy. We would love to stay there again sometime. Thanks Richard!

Jodie....July 2016 · ?

Excellent location with a country feel, near the beach and close to wineries. Very clean, beautifully styled and appropriately private B and B. Hosts are very accomodating and friendly. Thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay, hopefully be back soon!

Carina....May 2016

Jan was very welcoming when we (eventually) reached the property. She was so nice to have stayed up, to personally receive us & show us around what was a clean & beautiful property with stunning views. While our stay, this time, was more a transit one, on our way to KI, we hope to be back and spend more nights at Richard & Jan's property.

Amanda....April 2016 · ?

A great stay....Lovely garden with views to the sea. We were made to feel very welcome and would recommend this place to everyone.

Astrud....April 2016 · ?

Richard made me feel very welcome and the cottage was clean and accommodating. It was a very relaxed stay.

Michelle....March 2016 · ?

We enjoyed a great weekend at Watson Park. Richard and Jan were very friendly and welcoming and the B&B itself was lovely. Comfy king-sized bed, nice bathroom and a cute garden with beautiful views of the coast. Frankie the cat and Jock the dog were added bonuses! The B&B was very close to Normanville, Carrickalinga and also Second Valley which was perfect for a weekend on the beach.

Peter ...October 2015

It was such a delight to stay a night at Watson park. Richard's attention to detail was most appreciated, from the daisies freshly picked from the garden and also leaving the air-conditioning on for us before we arrived on the scorching day. We were very impressed with the property; as the listing describes, it was truly a cross between a country and coastal lifestyle. The property looked just as it was listed, however surprisingly more spacious. The scenery was breathtaking, with views that stretched across Second Valley to Rapid Bay, which is all only within a half an hours drive. The home is fully equipped with all the essentials for making a lovely home cooked meal with the local supermarket, Foodland only down the road. The neighbourhood was very quiet and tranquil, with a friendly dog that lived on the property, and also horses which lived across the road. This was the perfect getaway that we needed, would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a little retreat! We look forward to coming again for a longer stay

Eche ....October 2015

Lovely place for a long weekend break. Richard received us with "feel like at home" approach and the experience was as per his welcome, including with lovely pets.

Matt ....July 2015

A lovely location, only minutes away from town but far enough to be peaceful and secluded. Richard and Jan were lovely hosts and made us feel exceptionally welcome. The property is very well appointed and is highly recommended for anyone looking at staying in the area.

Tyson ....)May 2015

This property was fantastic! Stunning setting with brilliant views with a cosy, creative little house filled with special touches such as fresh bread being left for our enjoyment. We received a very warm and genuine welcome upon our arrival and a cheerful goodbye. We would definitely recommend Wateon Park to anyone looking to get away from the city!!

Leah Dawson....April 2015

Our stay at Watson park was everything we had hoped for. Close enough to the main township to walk but also having the feeling of being away from all the hustle and bustle.

Very welcoming and friendly hosts. Would definitely stay here again.

Very peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely couple of nights. Accommodation was very clean and tasteful. Grounds immaculate. The only disappointing thing was the King Size Bed as advertised on web site was actually 2 beds pushed together which isn't much fun when u want to snuggle and the bed is on wheels and starts to seperate down the center. Also continental breakfast was a few rolls cereal and jam. Every other BNB we have been to Continental breakfast includes bacon eggs orange juice and all the above.

Lovely stay

Enjoyed our stay. Well appointed and comfortable. One odd thing was the strangely short length of the bed - I'm short but toes at the end. Everything else great.

Perfect and relaxing stay with welcoming hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Watson Park was nothing short of lovely. The room is simply gorgeous, clean and the perfect size for a couple with the perfect amount of space from the owners house to feel private. You even get your own little private opening to the beautiful garden. Richard and his partner were lovely - super friendly and kind. Richard even helped jump start my car! It's a great distance from the Normanville shops/ restaurants and only 5-10 mins max to the beach. We would definitely stay again!
