Unwind @ Port Willunga Cottages 'Evelyn'

Evelyn Homestead - the ideal boutique hotel accommodation alternative near McLaren Vale's premium wine region

This exclusive bed and breakfast accommodation is steeped in Australian history, constructed in the early 1850s on land owned by Evelyn Sturt, brother of one of South Australias most famous and prominent explorers, Captain Charles Sturt.

Although totally renovated, much of the originality has been kept; hence a section of original slate shingle roofing can still be seen on the eastern side of the homestead. Open fireplaces, 18 thick stone walls, flagstone slate floors, a beautifully renovated kitchen with modern stainless steel appliances with an original working wood oven that still retains its charm whilst keeping the kitchen cosy and warm.

Evelyn is set on nearly 1800m2 of picturesque and tranquil gardens. Local stone and slate has been featured throughout the grounds with huge gum trees towering over the expansive front lawns.

Ample continental and cooked breakfast provisions are left for guests and include, bacon and eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes, cereals, bread, croissants, juice, and a selection of teas (leaf, bag and herbal) and coffee (plunger and instant). (see menu)

Complimentary rich chocolate coated almonds, a bottle of Anvers Brabo wine, and a decanter of Pirramimma Port are also provided for your enjoyment.

Evelyn Homestead holiday rental is only a short 4 minute drive to McLaren Vale.
