A few words from guests over the years that have fallen in love with the rustic ambience that Trestrail Cottage offers.


… very hard to leave, it’s such a cosy place.

Mark and Sharyn

It is my adult ‘cubby’, I love all the little surprises in cupboards and drawers.

Jennye and Michael

… nice to get away from work, noise, mobile phones and actually have time to read two books.

Lynda and Richard

… 20s Jazz, 39 steps and scrabble over gorgeous wine! – priceless.

Chris and Giana

… the unfamiliar sound, sweet silence.

Tara, Ellen and John

… only two complaints, we didn’t stay long enough!

Rob and Mary

All just wicked – thanks.

Jayne and Andrew

We walked our butts off, good food, wine and a whole new petanque course – the championship continues.

Gary and Barb

… I lay in the bath and watched the clouds roll past the moon, how magical.

Carole and Wayne

… Oh my God! What an absolutely amazing place. We’ve stolen the key and removalists will be up this weekend to bring our belongings up.

Sally and Ruth

… what a wonderful holiday … has given us a good sense of this area.

Helen and Evert

… having fallen for Trestrail I had to bring my man back for some R+R and TLC. This place is better than any doctor’s potion.

John and Jenny

We have stayed in many B&B’s. This is one of the best. Very easy to switch off.

Bill and Rose

The magic started when we turned the key in the door.

Rob and Therese

… we are both seniors! The place just gets better and better. We prepared ourselves for two new grandchildren.

Tom and Beth

Great customer satisfaction encouraged us to enter various tourism awards. In 1999 we were the Regional Tourism Award winners in our category.

For you, this endorsement says, “We’ll keep your holiday ticking along nicely”. For us, it signifies that Trestrail complies with the National Tourism Accreditation Program.

Going further in 2002, Trestrail won an Award of Distinction for South Australian Bed & Breakfasts. A rewarding achievement at state level.

Proud to play our part in local tourism we have been a member of the Clare Valley Tourist Association for over 20 years.
