Our Story

Adelaide Hills Retreats, formerly Adelaide Hills Country Cottages is a family run business, offering accommodation in the Adelaide Hills for almost 40 years.  In early 2018 we made the decision to turn our 5 Country Cottages into 2 Luxurious Retreats, and re-brand to Adelaide Hills Retreats.  The Villa and The Nest were completely renovated, and are now being offered as Luxury Retreats.

We look forward to personally welcoming you to our Retreats, where you will feel nurtured and spoilt!

We know you will fall in love with life as you experience the wonder of the Adelaide Hills and the allure of Adelaide Hills Retreats.  Each self-contained retreat is hidden away and enjoys its own romantic, secluded and peaceful setting, looking over beautiful Adelaide Hills country scenery. You’ll be spoilt for choice.

Just 30 minutes from Adelaide, and 10 minutes from Hahndorf, you’ll experience the pleasure of being surrounded by updated, style and attention to detail in each beautifully appointed retreat.  At Adelaide Hills Retreats you’ll find the romance of peace, tranquillity and seclusion, unforgettable country views, clean fresh country air and the song of the birds who call this place home.
