Nestled on the banks of the Angas River in historic Strathalbyn, these lovingly restored Heritage buildings are now beautiful and comfortable fully self contained cottages. As seen in the Lonely Planet Wine Tours of Australia and New Zealand Book, one of only 2 accommodations selected in the Fleurieu by Lonely Planet for this global publication !

Relax by the river in the award winning landscaped gardens ( winners of the regional Garden competition for 3 years in a row and for 2019 Grand Champion Garden ) or use your cottage, as your base to explore the many delights of South Australia’s stunning Fleurieu Peninsula.

Your choice of self contained accommodation, ranging from the cosy couples retreat, known as the Stables cottage. The original Gasworks Managers Cottage, this heritage listed cottage contains 2 Queen beds as well as a sofa bed if required, and finally, the newly renovated Garden Suite which has 2 Queen beds , plus laundry facilities for those longer stays.

Luxury 2 person spa bath feature in both the Managers and Stables. Ample provisions both continental and for you to cook your own breakfasts are included as standard. You will also find extra treats, a decanter of a beautiful Bleasdale Port, as well as chocolates. A flat screen TV with DVD Player, USB/Bluetooth speakers are all part of the generous hospitality provided by your hosts.

Heather and Graham Dean, both from the town of Swindon in Wiltshire – UK, originally, moved to the Gasworks from Melbourne in October 2016 after 29 years in Australia, living in Sydney and Melbourne, leaving the corporate life to pursue a new dream. “Over the years, we had stayed in many Cottages and Bed and Breakfasts around Australia, and always dreamed what we would do – and discussed what we really liked about the various places we stayed in, and which parts we would incorporate if ever we ran accommodation. To be honest, we never thought it would ever happen !”

We love the feedback we are getting from our customers, both online via the various booking sites and review, but also in the visitors books in each cottage. Weather you stay 1 night or many, we love it when you make a comment in the book. We have even had pictures drawn, and stories told – it’s fantastic.


The town of Strathalbyn is so welcoming and friendly, we are truly blessed to be able to share such a beautiful place.
