We had an amazing time at Rosie’s cottage. The cottage is very cute and it has all the essentials you might need. Rosie was very hospitable. Perfect location, few minutes walk to the botanic gardens and 10 mins walk to the city centre.

Athelney Cottage is an extremely comfortable, tranquil haven, in close proximity to the city, as well as Adelaide’s beautiful parks and gardens. All the comforts one could imagine and a gracious host who pays attention to detail.

Athelney cottage was a little disappointing. It was very stuffy, no windows in the lounge/bedroom area, just double doors with no fly screens. The weather was hot and the outside area was dirty with birds droppings on the chairs and table so we couldn't sit outside. Over priced accommodation for what was offered.

Gorgeous cottage close to the city

We had a lovely stay at Athelney Cottage. We enjoyed the quiet street and being so close to the botanic gardens. Rosie was an excellent host - very warm and welcoming. Our dogs were welcome too! Comfortable bed, large overstuffed sofas and air conditioning made our holiday very enjoyable.
