Watervale Retreat

Clare Valley, South Australia

Very reasonable, I would put this in the budget accomodation category but with lots of nice perks.


Just outside the small town of Watervale on the edge of the Clare Valley. A perfect location for a weekend in the valley, easy driving distance to the wineries  in the area as well as the local attractions. The bushland setting was really relaxing, there are only 4 cabins and there's quite a bit of space between them so noise from your neighbours isn't an issue.

View from the front deck, another cabin can just be seen.


It was a well appointed cabin with a bedroom, a walk through small single bedroom, a bathroom and a lounge and kitchen area. The beds had electric blankets (important in the very cold winter months!!) the cabin was air-conditioned and there was an overhead fan in the bedroom. (The air conditioner could be switched to heating in the cold weather) 

The kitchen was well stocked and for those who wanted to cook there were some staples: salt, pepper, oil provided. Items to make a continental breakfast were included, such as milk cereal and fruit and the nice surprise the following morning was freshly baked bread!

Free wifi was included.

Optional Extras

There are onsite animals, emus and alpacas to go and see.

I can recommend the Watervale Retreat, the cabins had everything you would need for a short stay or for a place to base yourself when visiting the Clare Valley. Lovely environment and perfect for a peaceful break.
