Wuthering Heights Getaway

We had been getting very stressed of late; Me with my final papers and exams for the end of semester at university and Nic with his promotion at work. So we decided we needed a getaway and how else would we go except in period style. Normally we would go camping and live under our canvas, however, this time we decided to go in style. Therefore, we stayed for 3 nights in a bed and breakfast in the Clare Valley called Wuthering Heights. It is a period style house that was hand built using reclaimed building materials.

Being located in the Clare Valley we had lots of opportunity to purchase and drink amazing wines and local produce. The house itself, however, is located in a large farm area that has been reforested, creating beautiful walks and views. The property has a hill and also a creek that runs into a small lake with a fishing bridge. We thoughroughly enjoyed exploring the property including the remains of the original farm house. 



The inside of the house is just as amazing with a large log fireplace to keep warm and a lovely long wooden table for dinning.

We ended up having a very relaxing time and feeling refreshed to get back to our normal lives.
