Being a former Bakery, our historic shop & residence has lots of character and is unique & interesting. We provide affordable accommodation blending antique & modern furnishings for your comfort. You will have complete privacy as we only take one booking at a time. You can enjoy a relaxed stay in your "home away from home" with a fully equipped kitchen overlooking your own private garden. Our small town has a lot to offer. Being central to Mid North & Clare Valley historic towns, Spalding is a vibrant "stop over" for holiday travelers. Our town park, oval complex, local Cafe/coffee shop provides lunches and good coffee and a very popular Country Hotel provides meals Thursday- Sunday. Travelers & caravan owners, stop for a break on their way to the Flinders and trail walkers & bike riders on the Heysen & Mawson Trails are accommodated at Spalding. Our historic Churches have been renovated to provide 'Fringe' entertainment and French Art Classes, but if you need a quieter break from the city, we have 4 Rivers & the Bundaleer Reservoir for your trout & Perch fishing requirements. There is also a very large Solar heated Swimming Pool for hotter Summer days, staying in Spalding.
Purchased the former Baker's shop & residence in 2008 & began renovations. After 50 years with the Education Dept. of SA I decided to retire from classroom teaching & concentrate on my newly renovated B&B & move into hospitality.
I would like to tell you something about our neighborhood. We are a small Country town with families & retirees living in town & farming properties surrounding which grow grains, wheat oats, & barley, hay & canola. Farmers keep sheep for wool marketing & meat & also there are stud cattle properties. Spalding has great Sporting facilities, a beautiful green oval, new Sports complex & a park with BBQ facilities & playground for the children. Many travelers stop off at the park for a picnic & the local shop serves good coffee & lots of choices for takeaway food. Our Post Office is open 5 days a week and has a great array of giftware. Spalding Primary school supports children from Reception to Yr. 6. The school grounds are exceptionally well kept. with play areas & its own green Oval. It is a great school for children to begin their education. Spalding is situated between rivers to the east, west & north which all run towards the River Broughton. The River Broughton is stocked with trout & we have a catch & release fishing permit included with your accommodation. The Heysen & Mawson trails meet at Spalding so many walkers on the Heysen like to enjoy a stay at Country bakehouse accommodation. The Spalding Hotel in Main Street is right opposite Country bakehouse & meals are available Thurs. - Sun. The local grocery shop serves lunches & coffee, & is open for fuel also 8.00 am - 5.30pm......8.30pm Friday night for Dinner meals, Roasts in Winter & Asian food in Summer. We are situated central to Clare, Jamestown & the historic town of Burra so we can offer some great day trips site seeing & many restaurants and wineries are available for meals just a 25 minute drive away.
