Greenock's Old Telegraph Station exterior

Photo Gallery

Located in the main street of Greenock in the world famous Barossa Valley, Greenock’s Old Telegraph Station cottage was once one of the original telegraph stations linking Adelaide and Angaston. Today it operates as a beautifully restored, two bedroom, self-catered bed and breakfast accommodation.

The main bedroom, at the front of the cottage, has a queen size bed with quality linen and warm quilt. There is an electric blanket for warmth on those chilly Barossa Valley nights. There is a full length mirror and rack to hang your clothes. The bedside clock functions as a radio, an alarm and a iPod docking station. Heavy drapes keep the room dark at night, and to assist with heat retention and noise minimisation (which is practically nil in the quiet town of Greenock) the window has a double layer of glass.

The second bedroom contains a comfy double bed with quality linen, warm quilt and electric blanket for those chilly Barossa Valley nights. The character laden, deep window frame can be opened to let in the fresh air. It has views of the rear garden.

The lounge room at the front of the cottage has two comfy couches  and a cosy floor rug for snuggling in front of the combustion heater in winter. Wood is provided from May to September. There is a HDTV with Netflix to watch, and a Bose speaker to stream your own music. The window can be opened to let in cooling breezes or extra cooling and heating can be provided by the wall mounted air conditioner. Wooden floor boards finish off an authentic heritage experience.

After a day out touring the Barossa Valley why not come back to the cottage and cook yourself a meal from all the lovely produce you’ve bought at the local Barossa Farmer’s Market. Store your goodies in the full sized fridge (there is plenty of room for those bottles of Barossa white wine). Cooking options include an electric stove top with four burners, microwave and electric frypan. All necessary cooking equipment is supplied, such as pots and pans and cooking utensils, plus some cooking staples such as oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Or you could decide to cook outside using the gas barbecue.There are plenty of plates, cups, mugs, bowls, wine glasses, water glasses, cutlery etc. to serve up your meal. You can choose to eat at the table in the warmth of the country style kitchen or outside at the patio undercover seating if the weather is nice.

What more could you want after a day of touring the world famous Barossa Valley than to relax with a warm spa. It is big enough for two so it is perfect to begin a romantic evening. We supply plenty of towels to add to the experience.

The sunroom at the rear of the cottage provides an extra area ideal for reading and relaxing. Perfect place to enjoy your cup of tea. It has views of the rear outdoor eating area and blinds ensure privacy at night.

Fully enclosed garden

There is no need to leave your best friend at home. The cottage has a fully enclosed rear yard with lawn area for romping around.

Pet friendly

Don’t have a pet? Then just sit back and relax and enjoy the sunshine and garden. You might be lucky to see some of the local bird life having a splash in the bird bath. We have a family of Magpies that drop by regularly and if you are lucky, you may meet our Kookaburras!

Sit outside on those warm, sunny afternoons and balmy evenings that we get in the Barossa Valley. Cook up a good Aussie barbecue as you slowly enjoy the complimentary bottle of wine, or any other beverages you’ve purchased during your visit to one of the many Barossa wineries. There is plenty of room and the area is paved and undercover and in close proximity to the back door should you need to duck inside for anything.
