The Clare Valley provides a range of exciting trail experiences and includes three of the state’s top trails Heysen, Mawson & Riesling. The Riesling Trail, passes right by the cottages; a multi-use recreational trail for walking and cycling, which presently utilises a 34km of disused section of a former railway line.
