One thought on “Spalding Escape

  1. We stayed at Spalding Escape for 2 nights last week while walking the Heysen trail. Highly recommended this accommodation as it had everything you could want, including a fabulous big spa bath and all the little details were thought of. Brendan is a lovely host. A very relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable stay.
