Accommodation: (see the homepage for photos)

THE COTTAGE  is a 2 bedroom 1930's recently refurbished cottage with a lounge/dining room, comfortably and cosily appointed.  It is well sound-proofed, allowing for privacy and a good sleep-in despite all the farm noises that go on from dawn.  It contains a large master bedroom with a queen sized bed, and a second bedroom with a bunk bed and trundle.  The sofa in the lounge room also serves as a double foldaway bed, thus comfortably catering for 6-7.
The dining room, kitchen and lounge are surprisingly spacious and open out onto a shady sun porch. The kitchen is adequately appointed and the building is easily warmed with a slow combustion stove. Stove top and microwave is available but no oven.    All linen is supplied.  The cottage stays relatively cool in summer but there is a reverse cycle air conditioner in the  lounge room
available for those occasional very hot days.  There is a TV/DVD facility.

:  A new addition at Chamel Fields, it is a large American style wooden barn, recently clad interiorly.  It has a spacious new kitchen and bathroom, comfortable and large lounge, dining for 12 people, slow combustion heater, and a piano.  The large downstairs area maintains a steady temperature in summer except in a long hot spell.  The kitchen has a gas stove top, microwave and a benchtop oven. 
There are two bedrooms on the ground floor with 2-3 single beds each.  The upstairs area which has a reverse cycle air conditioner has 3 curtained rooms with a queen-sized bed, a double bed and a single bed/lounge.  A further double bed is available in an alcove on the ground floor.
The Barn is available for larger groups and can be set up for a live-in conference centre.  Bigger families or two  families holidaying together can been accommodated comfortably.

 Local Eateries:
Continental or farm breakfast provisions are available or you have the option to cater for yourself. 
Meadows, just 10 minutes away boasts a pleasant hotel dining room and a yummy bakery/restaurant.  Both are user friendly for children. There is also a pizza restaurant.   And don't forget the Southern Vales Wineries and the superb restaurants in McLaren Vale, 15 minutes from here in the other direction!

There is no mobile number available, as Chamel Fields is in a valley and does not have reliable mobile service.
