This accommodation is known as the "Pickers' Quarters" where backpackers and willing workers have spent time assisting Catherine Vale during vintage and other vineyard work. The large room is lined with coolroom material. There is a single ceiling fan with additional fans available. There is a fire trail for easy walking. There are many kangaroos for those patient enough and those who rise early. If you listen closely you can hear the many bird sounds including the kookaburras laugh.

The space
Catherine Vale Cellar Door has the most spectacular views in the region and for those wanting peace and tranquility it is a good place to start.

Guest access
Catherine Vale is a quiet working vineyard farm retreat with access off Milbrodale Road. It is approximately 500 metres to the main house, cellar door and accommodation. Guests are allowed around the 100 acre property and can take walks within the property boundaries. There is a BBQ area with picnic tables where you can enjoy a meal outdoors looking out on the amazing views of the valley.

The accommodation itself has a BBQ area but the views of Yellow rock are from the main drive into the property.

Other things to note
The accommodation is comfortable and basic. Cooking facilities include a single electric burner and microwave. There is no oven. An outside gas BBQ is available for use.
