A few common sense basics apply:
We aim to leave a light footprint.
Water is precious in country Australia & the cottage relies solely on rainfall.
Please help conserve our precious resource by using carefully.
Local regulations state NO FIRES, indoors or out, during fire ban season (mid November to end of April).
At other times, ensure the fire pit is fully extinguished on your departure.
Please refrain from smoking inside. Dispose of cigarette ends in the container provided by the back door.
If bringing a pet please clean up after them & keep under control.
We love this special place and trust you will treat it respectfullly.
Tarrah Mhor has been home for the past fifteen years and now we have taken the opportunity to offer the house & this lovely space to guests.
We embrace the Barossa's famous food and wine culture; growing organic produce, cooking, maintaining the small, estate vineyard & making our own wine are among favourite pastimes.
We have a passion for nature & a commitment to restoring habitat for native wildlife, reflected in the property's large garden and ongoing revegetation projects.
We love the Barossa's physical beauty, lifestyle and sense of community.
