Overview

12 guests
2 nights minimum 
The B&B at Westgate is large, roomy and very comfortable with stunning views in all directions. The house is orientated to the East to make the most of the morning sun and the views of the vineyards below and the Pyrenees Ranges beyond. Located only three kilometres from the Western Highway between Ararat and the wine village of Great Western, it is very peaceful, relaxing and quiet surrounded by farm land. Westgate is still a working farm of 700 acres with sheep, cattle and horses. The vineyard comprises 40 acres of mostly Shiraz grapes. Large, fully self-contained country style house accommodating up to 12 in comfort. Magnificent views in all directions, well equipped kitchen, outdoor entertaining areas, privacy and room to move are just some of the reasons to come and stay for a week...The B&B at Westgate is large, roomy and very comfortable with stunning views in all directions.

Large, fully self-contained country style house accommodating up to 12 in comfort. Magnificent views in all directions, well equipped kitchen, outdoor entertaining areas, privacy and room to move are just some of the reasons to come and stay for a weekend or longer. Spectacular panoramic views that will excite and inspire. The views in all directions from Westgate are spectacular. To the East are the Pyrenees Ranges and the vineyards below offering stunning sunrises or Scotch Mists and to the West, the awe-inspiring Grampians Ranges and equally amazing sunsets. A short stroll along the ridge allows you to view 360 degrees including vineyards and farming land with very few houses. The vistas change all day, every day depending on season, weather and time of day. Accommodation catering to the largest of families. Many people say the size of the house is unusually big. To be able to accommodate up to 12 people without being cramped for room is a pleasant surprise. There is also a very large table that comfortably seats 10 and could seat 12 if needed. The picture windows in both the sitting and dining rooms offer guests uninterrupted views of the gardens, vineyards and mountains beyond. The kitchen is large with plenty of bench space and very well equipped to allow easy catering for large numbers. There is a slow combustion wood heater with all wood provided and a split system – so if the weather isn’t warm enough outside, guests can still be cosy and warm inside.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Very comfortable and welcoming home.
We were pleasantly surprised on arrival to find the house warm and well stocked with food for breaky, fruit, wood for the fire and comfy beds. The house is spacious, the grounds beautiful and the view spectacular. We had a wonderful family weekend.

Fantastic holiday farm house, beautiful views.
This is the second time our family of 14 have stayed at West Gate, once again we were not disappointed with the presentation of the property. We had six grandchildren with us this time and they had a fantastic time playing in the pool, running around the extensive grounds, they were even luck enough to get a ride on Lofty the Horse under Tim's supervision, a task he did not have to do but that made the kids day, all being from the city. On arrival it was a pleasant surprise to have a large bowls of fruit in the dining room for our enjoyment, a lovely touch by Fiona. If you want a very clean, nicely presented large family house to rest and relax you could not go past West Gate. It's not to far from attractions like Halls Gap, Seppelts and Best's winery's and a short drive to Ararat if you need supplies.
