Looking for the ideal cosy & romantic

Clare Valley getaway?


Tumbleweed is a comfy, country, cottage nestled on the outskirts of the picturesque Watervale village.

This charming rammed earth cottage features luxury appointments with two bedrooms, one bathroom and open plan lounge and modern kitchen. Set on an acre bordered by vineyards and old farm buildings, this quiet private cottage is a perfect escape for a couple or just two friends wanting to catch up. 

Take a short stroll to the Watervale General Store for a coffee or lunch before heading out to cycle the famous Clare Valley Riesling Trail. After touring the local Clare Valley Cellar Doors, wine down at the local historic Watervale Hotel with a glass of local craft beer or vino. 

Stay in for a quiet night in front of the fire making the most of the modern kitchen facilities.

Maybe in the warmer months chill out with a BBQ under the starlight or a harvest moon.

Complimentary Wine + More!

Wine is our life and hopefully plays a role in yours. Your complimentary bottle is on the bar with a “drink me” neck tag. Please enjoy during your stay.

If you feel the temptation to enjoy another bottle (it’s a long way to the bottle shop) you will find a selection of Shut The Gate Wines in the wine rack next to the bar with Cellar Door pricing marked on each bottle. You’re welcome to purchase these with the charge going to your credit card post your stay.

You will also find a discount voucher in your welcome pack for wines purchased at the Shut The Gate Wines Cellar Doors.
