No doubts, the Oat cottage located in the center of Hahndorf is one of the drawcards in the area. The location of this guest house makes it easy for visitors to access nearby restaurants, boutiques, taverns and cafes for their diverse needs.

The large single bedroom unit which is tucked on the gigantic Adelaide Hills in the historic Hahndorf. The property offers a free parking space, Wi-Fi, air conditioning and television. The ambiance of the outdoor setting will make you zoom out and let your mind travel. If you get bored staying indoors, you can sit back and sip a glass of wine or some fruit juice while you soak in the beauty of the scenery. Taking a stroll to the main town can be as therapeutic as it is interesting, the city has so many beautiful things to offer you. If you have enough cash to spend, indulge in good old German gastronomy on the restaurants that line the streets.
