Situated on a hill overlooking green fields with frolicking baby lambs, and grapevines to the side, the location of Neagles Retreat is both idyllic and close to wineries. Our Villa (number 1) was beautiful. With 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, the main with a large bath, it was ideal for two couples or a family. Both bedrooms and the living area took advantage of the delightful view with picture windows. The attractive living area was large and comfortably furnished and opened onto an enormous, covered deck with a barbecue. A gas log fire, in addition to air conditioning, added warmth and ambience to cold evenings. I would thoroughly recommend Neagles Retreat when visiting the Clare wineries.
Neagles Retreat was excellent for us two couples; two king sized bedrooms each with ensuite bathrooms, a big open plan area with a well equipped kitchen where several of us could prepare food simultaneously, a big open lounge, dining area and large outdoor deck. While we only stayed one night and didn't get to really enjoy relaxation in the space, it was lovely and would highly recommend to others and to return again for longer.
Two couples from Sydney on a Clare Valley winery trip, we opted to stay 2 nights in the area and enjoy all the Valley has to offer. The accommodation was spacious, squeaky clean, offering stunning views all round. Everything we needed for a comfortable stay was here, cosy fireplace, comfortable lounge and dining furniture, two spacious bedrooms and two well appointed bathrooms.
The grounds are beautifully landscaped and the area offers many good walks. We were blessed with fine wintery blue days and clear crisp nights. Definitely one to come back to.
Only a night and would have been happy for a month. If you are seeking clean, quiet, lovely outlook including gum trees and a vineyard on the corner, a deck to enjoy your evenings and morning on, birds and parrots, Maggies (and a few crows), comfy beds, ensuites with each bedroom, full kitchen (including glad wrap!!!)... then this is the place.
And - if you are lucky, add to that - bottle of reisling from the vines on the corner. That too was a stunner.
We gathered up our gourmet provisions for an antipasto platter for dinner from “shut the gate” and settled in for the evening.
We stayed in Villa 1 for 3 nights. The villa was very comfortable, 2 bedrooms each with its own bathroom. Full kitchen, dining room and deck with BBQ. We could not fault the accommodation, and the sangria was a big hit! Will definitely be returning for another visit.
The information centre is a great place to start if you haven't been to clare before and is just down the road from Neagles retreat villas.
