Among the cherry trees and rolling green pastures of the Barossa is a family-built cottage, perfect for a wine-tasting getaway. Presenting Collingrove.
The Angas clan occupied Collingrove until 1976, when Ronald Angas donated the home to the National Trust. The house's gorgeous antiques are 98 percent Angas family originals.
Chefs Patti and Damon De Ruiter now manage Collingrove, as well as doing the cooking. The property has five guest rooms, all furnished with antique brass beds, cabinets and chairs. Three rooms have ensuites and two share a large bathroom with claw-foot bath.
The beautiful dining room is lined with cedar and decorated with silver trophies and antiques. The gardens are meticulously cared for and there is a tennis court and cedar hot tub. The dining room, drawing room and library have open fires and your formal six-course dinner can be served in your choice of room.
Menus are personalised and planned and created by the chef using quality local produce.
