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 two bedroom cottage originates from 1845 and is surrounded by beautiful vines and historic sheep farming country side - perfect for a stroll and a photographer’s delight.
Hughes Park Cottage sits amongst some of the Clare Valley’s top farming land and the Estate is home to around 5,000 merino sheep, some of which graze outside the kitchen window daily.
Guests will also enjoy seeing a range of wildlife on the property whilst at the accommodation or wandering around the Estate. Kangaroos, deer, rabbits, ducks, kookaburras, white cockatoos, pink galahs, along with the odd echidna have made the property their home also!
Imagine sitting on the verandah, taking in the afternoon sun and listening to hundreds of galahs
circling overhead just before the sun sets and the night sky fills with thousand of stars,
something one never sees in the city!
