A luxuriant garden surrounds this haven in the heart of historic Auburn, the gateway to the Clare Valley. Crafted with flair and Mediterranean style, the cottage is full of convivial spaces and warm, earthy hues, from the terracotta-tiled floors and leather tub chairs to colourful artworks and cedar French doors. The appointments throughout are exceptional. Both upstairs bedrooms feature walk-in robes and full ensuites, the kitchen has top-notch appliances and utensils to suit the most enthusiastic cook, and there’s even a fully equipped laundry and separate spa room. After a day touring wineries and local sights, this delightful creek-side cottage is the ideal homecoming.
