Not sure I can put into words how great our weekend here was. My wife organised this weekend away for my xmas present so we could spend time alone away from the children. We left our phones in the car & switched off. The welcome platter was the perfect start (with some sparkling wine...) & a nice chill out in the guest house. We then had a couple massage which I rate as the best I've ever had. Karen was brutal (in a great way)!! We then did a lot more relaxing before heading to our beautiful dinner. The food is home cooked using local ingredients from the area & also the veg garden. It was divine! After a great night sleep & big sleep in we had a lovely breakfast cooked fresh using local produce, before heading off to more body treatments. We had a late check out & it was the most perfect weekend ever. We will be returning here again & again.

From the moment I arrived I was relaxed. Caroline and Richard made me feel very welcome and the flowers and fresh scone was a beautiful touch. From all of the seats and blankets out inviting you to enjoy the relaxing countryside to the gorgeous comfortable cottage I felt like I had to relax. Then of course I had a detox body scrub which was heaven and followed it up with an amazing 3 course dinner. I enjoyed a night in my cottage with a soak in the huge spa bath and curling up on the couch with a movie and the cheese platter and port provided. Breakfast was again an amazing yummy mix of local products. Now just digesting that and waiting for my hot stone massage. Will be sad to say goodbye. I was only booked for 1 night, but it’s been perfect. Thanks Caroline and Richard.

Spent a nice relaxing weekend away with my wife in the coach house and what a little gem it was. It’s just like being in your own piece of the country so peaceful with the beautiful gardens surrounding it as well as your own discreet patio. Secluded yet so close to the local winery’s, the Kalamunda farmers markets and Masonmill gardens. After a nice peaceful sleep we were treating to the most amazing breakfast the food was superb definitely wouldn’t hesitate to come back again for a weekend away or longer to get away from the hustle and bustle of life.

We stayed in the Coach House which was quiet and had its own secluded patio. We liked to wander around the grounds where we were able to see the most wonderful birds and flowers. Our room was clean, bedding and linen perfect. Breakfast delicious, homemade mayonnaise and poached eggs perfect and everything locally sourced. Our hosts, Richard and Caroline, were very knowledgeable and could could point us in the right direction for the excellent local wineries and restaurants. Thanks for a lovely stay.
