“Indulge your Senses”

The sensual beauty and heavenly décor that takes you back in time, a place to relax, unwind & to soak up the country air with the skies above on show day or night and in any season in the Riverland. Water brings tranquillity and a sense of calm to any space and it’s about immersing yourself in an intimate environment & connecting to the nature around you, with the sky above and the cottage garden around you.
Outdoor bathrooms are beautiful spaces to indulge your senses for you to just feel connected to the outdoors like you do in the claw foot- bath at Crossfield Cottage B&B.

One should never underestimate the power of a good bath, especially if…even better when you’re soaking under the stars with a glass of Riverland wine & Riverland dried fruit or chocolate-coated semi sun-dried figs.

Senses can be heightened while enjoying the Sensory stimulation is the activation of one or more of the senses including taste, smell, vision, hearing, and touch.

It can range from something as simple as a hand massage with scented lotion or listening to a playlist of favourite music to more complicated activities designed to provide a sensory experience.

Taste and savour the wine, dried fruit, chocolate, cheese or strawberries.

Hear the outdoor sounds, soft music, and the conversation of a loved one or the silence.

Smell the fragrant lotion, bubble bath, bath bomb or the garden fragrances.

See the night sky with the stars and moon above, the sunlight of the morning or the festoon lights above you.

The Touch of a massage, the water beneath you, the exfoliating to care for your skin or the lotion rubbed into the skin.
