I hadn't visited for many years, so it was great to see this fantastic historical home again. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable and the rooms had beautiful antiquities collected by the Mortlock family. Well worth an hour to visit this fabulous building.

Outstandingly presented and preserved piece of Clare Valley history. Lady in the entrance was informative and polite, and gave us a good amount of her time to answer our questions.

A magnificent Georgian designed mansion set in rolling countryside near the Clare Valley. For a nominal charge you are free to roam many of the rooms but unfortunately not allowed to photograph inside. Its a shame the public doesn't have the opportunity to see more...More

A fantastic time capsule of what life for the country squire and his family would have been like. Lets hope it doesn't fall into developers hands & the SA Government hands it over to the National Trust.
