The Nenke family warmly welcome you to their newly constructed eco village on their family farm near the town of Kukerin, in the Dumbleyung Shire. You can stay in a one bedroom unit; one bedroom apartment or a two bedroom cottage. The apartments can sleep up to four adults and the cottages up to six (including the two day beds in the living area). Every room has un-interupted farm views from where you can enjoy glorious sunsets and study the stars at their best, without light pollution. All bedrooms are fitted out with either king size beds or king singles and every room has its own beautifully appointed bathroom. This is a century old working farm, growing wheat, barley, lupins, peas and yabbies. Today it is home of third, fourth and fifth generation family members. Being mindful of the importance of looking after the environment for future generations Mary's Farm Cottages have been designed as an eco friendly village. You will note solar panels that provide energy, the collection of all rainwater and the use of the grey water to subterraneously water the lawn! While you are staying visit their yabby farm, Cambinata Yabbies, five minutes down the road. Here cottage guests can tour the yabby establishment and 'shearing shed' function centre decorated with historic items. They can also purchase a selection of delicious gourmet products including farm fresh honey, pickled yabbies & abalone, dukkahs and olive oil as well as have a meal. Mary's Farm Cottages are a great place to stay when visiting the iconic Dumbleyung Lake, where Sir Donald Campbell broke the world water speed record in 1963 as well as do a day trip to famous Wave Rock. Guests are choosing the cottages as the perfect place to stop off on the way to Esperance or Albany

We had the one bedroom apartment room which was very spacious. The living area had two day-beds, a large coffee table, full sized kitchen with oven, stove top, microwave, dishwasher. Good quality glassware and crockery. Toaster & Kettle & full-sized fridge. Washing machine & dryer with powder provided. There was a lot of thought and attention to detail in putting the rooms together with cold water in the fridge, games in the cupboard, books & dvd’s. There was also a mini-bar in the room in case you wanted a snack or a drink – all your needs were anticipated. There was also an informative compendium put together with breakfast or meal options & suggested things to do in the area. The bedroom was large & spacious, with a comfortable large bed, good quality pillows with nice linen. Nice big flat screen television & a good air conditioner. Bathroom was large, bright & clean. Well ventilated, good water pressure, nice toiletries and large fluffy towels. Decent hair drier and ample lighting to put make-up on. Great shampoo. The cottages are very quiet & peaceful, where you can only hear the birds sing and at night make sure you look at the stars - amazing. The property had a nice quirky BBQ fitted in an old Ford car, a play area for children with plenty of room to run around, some tame animals - sheep and Lama that you can hand feed and walking trail. We were lucky enough to meet the owner Mary who was extremely nice and very accommodating and went out of her way to ensure we were comfortable and happy with our stay. Great for a stop over or a place to stay if you would like to detach from the hustle & bustle of the city. We will be back. Thank you for a fabulous stay.

Stayed here late last year on our trip to the great south. I unfortunately had an online class that I needed reception and Mary was really helpful. We had a Telstra sim and Mary was on standby in case I could not get connected. The thing I loved most was the bed and the bedding. Everything was so soft and comfy. I had the best sleep ever and didn’t want to leave. Lovely views and would really like to return. Thank you Mary.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here on two occasions to Mary's Farm Cottages. The location is perfectly placed at the halfway mark between Esperance and Perth, conveniently just off the main highway. The location is wonderful - from your cottages you will have a view of expansive fields of crops and is a perfect place to simply unwind with a glass of local wine, whilst watching the Western Australian sun set. Mary was so accommodating of my requests, and communicated with me throughout my stay to ensure I was comfortable. The property itself is lovely to walk around as there is a short walk trail where I was able to take some fabulous pictures of the sunset over the fields. There are also some resident animals that you can feed. The rooms were quite clean and the beds comfortable. The only thing I would suggest is that you bring fly/mozzie repellant, as they are out in full force! It is so peaceful at night, the pure silence broken occasionally by the distant hum of a passing road train. There is quite strong 3G mobile reception here too with Telstra - for anyone who cannot live without their phones. I simply won't stay anywhere else now when making the long drive between Esperance and Perth.

I could merely post the photos of the sunset and that should be enough to get you to stop in at Mary’s Cottages. Great spot to break up a trip to Esperance and everything is perfect - location, cleanliness and comfy beds. Oh - there’s no internet which was also a blessing!!

Beautifully sited well equipped cottages with views over ripe wheat fields. Quite spectacular. Great service from the owners with lots of local information. The yabbie feast offered as an extra is simply the best. Locally made dukka, olive oil, and freshly made salad and bread delivered with local yabbies to the cottage was simple but superb. It showed how delicious yabbies can be.

A group of us really enjoyed the setting, accommodation and Mary's friendliness when showing us the Yabbie farm to cap off our weekend. The meal at her establishment was tops. You can also buy some wonderful honey from the yabbie farm to sweeten the weekend. I wish I could show you the photographs of the delicious meal that was presented to us!!

Thank you Fabricio and Daniella. It was delightful welcoming you to our farm and Mary's Farm Cottages. We look forward to your return with your beautiful family. Michael and I have been extremely blessed to live where we live and continue to have an extraordinary life which we would never have had if we had not married and embraced farming, yabbies and agri tourism.

Hubby and I stayed here for one night on our way from Norseman to Busselton. So peaceful. We booked a self contained room, fabulous layout, everything you could need. Would be great for a family weekend away or a corporate tea getaway.

Thank you so much for sharing your experience staying at Mary's Farm Cottages. We are delighted that you enjoyed the layout and had everything that you needed. Your recommendation for family weekend away or corporate event is very much welcomed. As there are 8 cottages and the availability of Cambinata Function Centre it I agree it is ideal for group bookings. Currently being in lock down has made our family appreciate even more than ever the peacefulness and serenity of where we live and the wonderful freedom of space to wonder. We look forward to welcoming many new and past guests when it is safe for everyone to travel and holiday again.

My wife and I stayed here overnight on a trip from Esperance back to Perth having seen it mentioned in the Tourism WA Australia website. It is a truly exceptional place. The cottage was extremely comfortable and immaculately clean with everything you need. The super king size bed was super comfy with luxury linens and the aircon above the bed made for a very restful sleep. We requested the Yabby dinner and Mary and her husband delivered it personally to the cottage. It was delicious. And to cap it call, we saw a most magnificent sunset sitting on the patio followed by a magical starry sky. A truly special place that we will remember for a long time.

So delighted that you and your wife found us through Tourism WA, enjoyed the comfort of the cottages and the vista from your front verandah. Increasing numbers of guests are choosing to stop over at our cottages on the way to or from Esperance finding them the perfect break to what can be a very long drive. We very much enjoyed meeting you both and sharing our part of the world. We are also very happy that you will savour your memories of 'our truly special place', the magnificent sunset and the starry sky. Thank you for sharing your experience Best wishes Mary
