A cute cottage occuping a corner on a working farm

If you want to get back to nature and indulge in gourmet food and wine, look no further than Hughes Park Cottage. Set on a working farm and within easy reach of the Clare Valley’s cellar doors, here, you’ll be enjoying the good life in every sense.

Nestled amid rolling hills and towering gums is a retreat simpatico with its surrounds. A tin roof, a stone exterior and a stack of firewood set against the farmlands give you an immediate feeling of place. Stepping inside you’re met with sweet simplicity, with fresh, light-filled spaces providing the backdrop to your timeout. Provincial-style, a crackling fire, and comfy lounging spots complete the scene for a very relaxing stay.

Resting in a 19th century cottage with acres upon acres of gorgeous countryside and gnarling vines stretched out before you inspires getting back to basics. Explore the estate's private bushwalking trails, spot native wildlife, and when you’re ready to rest your legs, sit back on the verandah with a chilled glass of riesling and a soundscape of pink galahs. Take in magical sunsets and myriad stars, soaking up the absolute serenity of this sanctuary.

You’ll really get to unwind with Hughes Park as your base. You’ll go on long walks around the hills, undisturbed by the buzz of your phone or crowds of people hurrying past. This is the perfect detox from the everyday. Better still, you’re just a ten-minute trip from Clare’s wonderful wineries and restaurants. Grab some bikes and cycle your way along the Riesling Trail. And when you’re done chatting to the makers and sampling their wares, return to the quietude of your cottage to enjoy a bottle from your freshly collected stash. If you’re looking to dine out, a long lunch at Skillogalee Restaurant will reward you with beautiful dishes complementary to the wine, great service, and not an ounce of stuffiness or pretention. And at the end of it all, you’ll love coming back to your blissfully peaceful home away.
