“Apple Tree Cottage bliss”
We stayed one night at the Apple Tree Cottage. The cottage and the property are both beautiful. It looks like something out of a dream. We had a bit of spare time in the morning to walk around the hills and use the paddle boat on the lake. It was so quiet and beautiful…and so private!! We didn’t meet a soul for the time we stayed there…
We arrived just as the darkness was falling. We loved the fact that the lights were already on and some music was playing softly when we pushed open the cottage’s door.
All together, a real bliss…
TripAdvisor Review, VIC @ Apple Tree Cottage November 2013
“Top of the line!”
This is the ultimate in a self contained luxury cottage. Stayed in Lavender Fields for two nights. Beautifully designed and fitted out. Morning sun on verandah enjoying breakfast provided in package. Everything has been thought of. Expensive but worth every cent.
TripAdvisor Review, NSW @ Lavender Fields Luxury November 2013
“Beautiful, peaceful, private ….”
We are just back from five nights staying at “The Nest”. It feels as though you are a million miles away from anywhere, it is so peaceful and private. We enjoyed everything, but in particular the birdlife and being able to go for walks around the property. Breakfast supplies were very generous and fresh and tasty. I would recommend “The Nest” without hesitation, and hope we will go back again.
TripAdvisor Review, NZ @ The Nest November 2013
“A touch of perfection in the Adelaide Hills”
For 4 nights recently my husband and I enjoyed the wonderful tranquillity, beautiful scenery and luxurious comfort of The Villa at Adelaide Country Cottages. The welcome was warm; the cottage also was warm and inviting on arrival, with the lights on, music playing, the fire set and the excellent local champagne on ice. The breakfast provisions were super generous, and other thoughtful pantry items and condiments (as well chocolates and port) added to the pampering experience. If one adds to this the attractive decor throughout, a large and comfortable bed (and bedding), a huge spa bath and lots of space and total privacy – one can truly feel that “perfection” is the only apt descriptor!
TripAdvisor Review, NSW @ The Nest November 2013
Our 6th visit to the cottages! The first visit to The Villa – as beautiful as all the other cottages. Lavender Fields Luxury is next on the list! Once again a great stay, wonderful leisurely breakfast, slow days touring around the Hills and relaxing nights by the fire. Wonderful.
Susie & Hugh, QLD @ The Villa November 2013
Everything was perfect! Loved spending time here and wish it was longer!
Toby & Jen, WA @ Apple Tree Cottage November 2013
Nothing out of place, everything thought of. What more could you ask for?
Serena & James, WA @ Apple Tree Cottage November 2013
The impact on arrival was overwhelming – Lavender Fields Luxury welcomed us all with subtlety and seduction at every turn… We have known about “the cottages” for so long through family and friends but the reality has been breathtaking.
From first impressions to departure, our stay has been fabulous – exceeding all expectations. It has renewed my love of the Adelaide Hills and enabled us to show this area off to our QLD friends staying at Gum Tree Cottage and The Villa. Loved every minute.
Thank you Steve, Mandy, Di & Staff.
Mike & Cathy, QLD @ Lavender Fields Luxury October 2013
We couldn’t have picked a better place to spend a second honeymoon. Attention to detail, nothing short of perfect. We did the walk, found the picnic rug and generally relaxed. Your secret hideaway isn’t safe with us. We will spread the word. You guys are awesome.
Doug & Teresa, SA @ The Nest October 2013
Once again, we have really enjoyed the charm of Gum Tree Cottage. Love being away on our own and enjoying the log fire, music and beautiful surrounds, both inside and out. So clean, cute and cozy! What a special touch is the welcome of lights, music and warmth!
Judy & John, SA @ Gum Tree Cottage October 2013
A lovely little getaway to help forget about everyday life. Peaceful, beautiful and private. We love how everything has already been thought of and prepared.I love watching the birds and being able to put food out for them. We’ll be back.
David & Elkie, SA @ The Nest October 2013
Such a beautiful place to begin our new life together. Absolutely gorgeous.

Another fantastic stay at AHCC, this time at Gum Tree Cottage and we absolutely loved it. The views are just amazing and we love the visits from the cows. We’ll be back!
Rino, Rachel, Edward & Sienna, SA @ Gum Tree Cottage October 2013
Amazing surroundings. Rowing around in the lake was a truly fantastic experience made unforgettable due to the friendly cows that on our return to the edge of the lake looked on as we rowed back. The walking trails have amazing gorgeous scenery. The cottage is divine as every window has breathtaking views. Memorable time, will definitely be back.
Well done guys. Sad to leave.
Susanna & Milton, SA @ Apple Tree Cottage October 2013
Mandy, Thank you for your warm reception. We couldn’t believe it when we arrived at Gum Tree Cottage – everything we required and more available. Just beautiful. We loved the cows now named 310 “Snow” and 719 “Miss Clementine”.
Tony & Leisa, QLD @ Gum Tree Cottage October 2013
We absolutely didn’t expect an accommodation like this wonderful cottage!! The cottage is amazing, and comforting silence.
Thank you for everything.
Heinz & Gabriela, Switzerland @ Gum Tree Cottage October 2013
Perfect place to stay and relax. We love the silence, the sound of birdlife, the trees, and the cozy comfortable cottage.
Trudi & Kurt, Christa & Martin, Switzerland @ Gum Tree Cottage October 2013
We were taken by the place as soon as we drove up. The views and serenity was great. The cows were friendly and can’t believe how smart your chickens are to date mark their own eggs! Thanks.
Ron & Anamaria, SA @ Gum Tree Cottage October 2013
We opened the ‘Lavender Fields Luxury’ gate and drove into wonderland.What a wonderful experience this has been – pure OPULENCE.Every requirement has been catered for, we were still finding surprises at the last moment, such as the chocolates and port.
The grounds are superb and one can only guess at the effort and time taken to achieve this ‘movie set’ environment.
This experience has spoilt us forever – nothing will ever match this.Thanks Steve & Mandy
Bob & Kaye, SA @ Lavender Fields Luxury September 2013
This was the perfect way to spend my birthday! Thank you for such an idyllic cottage for a relaxing getaway. We loved the décor, all the special little touches and attention to detail. It made the place feel very welcoming and comfortable.
We have stayed at The Nest and Lavender Fields Cottage in the past and have enjoyed our experiences at each of these cottages. The gardens and surrounds are so beautiful. Thank you.
Jayne & Glen, SA @ The Villa September 2013
A delightful cottage to stay in, our third time staying at AHCC we have experienced, The Villa, The Nest and now Gum Tree Cottage – Loved them all.
Dave & Leigh, SA @ Gum Tree Cottage September 2013
Stunning views from every window. Peaceful environment to rest. Spa, water temp and pressure perfect. Award winning accommodation. Delicious breakfasts and comfy bed.

Just what we needed to refresh.
Janet & Barry, SA @ Gum Tree Cottage September 2013
What a tranquil place Lavender Fields Luxury is. We visited AHCC to celebrate a special birthday and were amazed by the cottage and picturesque grounds. Great place to stay whilst we get to explore places in the Adelaide Hills that our busy lives don’t allow us to venture to. A peaceful and serene little treasure tucked away on our doorstep in the hills of Adelaide.
Deb & Dave, SA @ Lavender Fields Luxury September 2013
We came here from Korea for our honeymoon and we enjoyed our time very much. The weather was great and everything was beautifully organized. Thank you.
Jaettun & Gayeong, Korea @ Apple Tree Cottage September 2013
WOW! What a great way to spend our last few days in SA. Sitting in front of the fire is an amazing thing to experience during winter as we are from Queensland and don’t normally have the need. The décor is beautiful, the grounds are lovely, the serenity is amazing. We love the ‘thoughtfulness’ put into all the special little touches around the home. We will definitely be recommending the Adelaide Hills Country Cottages to others visiting the area.
Kelvin & Sheryl, QLD @ The Villa August 2013
What a delightful cottage and setting. We have loved spending 2 days and wish we could stay longer. From slushing around in the mud, exploring the orchards and getting friendly with the cows, to retreating indoor, with all your fabulous amenities and lovely touches that makes it so homely and warm. We’ll definitely be back. Thank you.
Emma & Ben, SA @ Gum Tree Cottage August 2013
We enjoyed our stay in the lovely peaceful place. Beautiful outlook from the lounge and bedroom. Gorgeous fire and very welcome on a typical chilly Hills weekend. Thank you for your thoughtful and thorough hospitality.
Anne & David, SA @ The Villa August 2013
What a magical night! Everything about our stay completely exceeded our expectations! From coming in to an already warm cottage to the beautiful fire place and views, nothing could have made our stay so special. Enjoyed the amazing spa bath and breakfast as well. Cannot wait to come back and experience the other cottages.
Mikayla & Steven @ The Villa August 2013
Never have we as a new couple experienced such abounding tranquility! Lost in time we were with mother nature an all her bountiful gifts. Most special moment, laying in the hammock gazing at starts through branches. Thank you Steve & Mandy.
Craig & Narelle, SA @ Apple Tree Cottage July 2013
What a perfect place to hide away on honeymoon! We just wanted to stay longer! Thank you for such beautiful accommodation we certainly enjoyed the luxury, attention to detail, sitting by the fire and walks in the gumboots. We shall definitely be back.
Stephen & Sue, SA @ Gum Tree Cottage July 2013
We loved every second we spent here, from the lake right outside our window to the warm fire. We enjoyed just going on walks and through the apple orchard. Although we had a power cut the staff were very helpful in providing lighting and it just added to the atmosphere. Thanks again, will definitely come back, it was hard to leave.
Hayley & Stephen, SA @ Apple Tree Cottage July 2013
We have returned to Gum Tree Cottage to celebrate our 1st Wedding Anniversary. This time enjoying the winter. the hard rain, the cold, the beautiful open fire and warm spa, the sound of birdlife and wind in the trees. So relaxing, perfect and wonderful. Your cottage has impeccable cleanliness and order, your attention to detail and comfort is truly wonderful. Thank you for our special beautiful memories.
Daryl & Pam, SA @ Gum Tree Cottage July 2013
“Heaven in the Adelaide Hills” As we drove through the gates to our cottage “Lavender Fields Luxury” we knew that this place was special. The stone cottage is set in the most beautiful lanscaped gardens – green grassy areas, beautiful trees (the autumn leaves were dropping), gorgeous borders of lavender and little pathways to walk on, a picturesque pond with a little bridge. From the outside the cottage is beautiful but when we walked inside, well it took our breath away. There was gentle music playing on the BOSE sound system and the fireplace was laid with kindling all ready to be lit. The cottage has been stylishly decorated in the French country cottage look, very charming yet with all the modern amenities, a great blend of old and new. Every room was perfect and every window had an amazing view. We felt immediately relaxed… would definately recommend this cottage if you just want to get away and relax. It is a great base to visit the surrounding areas and wineries. We will definately return. Our host Steve was lovely and gave us heaps of info for a great stay.
Steven & Michelle, QLD via Tripadvisor @ Lavender Fields Luxury June 2013

Sheri & Dean, SA @ Lavender Fields Luxury May 2013

Tash & Mark, SA @ Apple Tree Cottage Mar 2013
Our second stay at AHCC, having stayed during our last visit from the UK 4 years ago. I thought that Gum Tree Cottage was something special, but Lavender Fields was out of this world….. Tranquil, peaceful, spacious house and magnificant grounds – absolutely stunning, and so relaxing.
We are already planning to return next year.
Paul & Judith, UK @ Lavender Fields Feb 2013

Another wonderful stay, our third so far. Once at Gum Tree (Cottage), and twice at Lavender Fields. A truely great place to unwind. Mr Koala Bear visited our gum tree, we were more interested in him than he was in us!
We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay, thank you once again Steve & Mandy. We can’t fault a thing.

Mandy, Steve & Di, your warmth and generosity are reflected in the gorgeous Apple Tree Cottage. There is so much to love here – the idyllic views; waking to birdsong; the excellend walking track; chatting with the cows at various times of the day; the delicious and plentiful provisions; music on arrival – the list goes on and on…
Karen, SA @ Apple Tree Cottage Feb 2013

Thank you for making our stay absolutely unforgettable.

We feel totally pampered by the magnificant surroundings and the indulgent Lavender Fields cottage.

Thank you for a wonderful & relaxing stay. Attention to detail is 10+.

Debra & David, SA @ Lavender Fields Oct 2012
I love this place and never want to leave LOL. Was so relaxing sitting outside through the night with the sounds of frogs, crickets and goats in the distance. Woke up in the morning and a family of ducks were making their way to the water. Best place to stay for our 15 years together.
Would love to bring the kids next time as they would love this. Will be back very soon
Patrick & Trish, SA @ Gum Tree Cottage Oct 2012
Dear Steve & Mandy, Once again we have enjoyed our favourite B&B, Lavender Fields. How lucky are we in S.A. to have such wonderful countryside, plus delightful accommodation. The Adelaide Hills area should be promoted more. It is heaven on earth! Thank you for the part you play in making this such an enjoyable place to stay. We will continue to stay here, nothing else compares.
Joy & Drew, SA @ Lavender Fields Oct 2012
Thank you Steve & Mandy for a lovely experience. The Villa is just lovely, reminds us of our trip to Italy. The decoration & your attention to detail in all areas is to welcoming… thank you for your personal touch.
