We are regulars, or at least we have been. For a while we did not have time. Couple of weeks ago we stayed again in one of the rail carriages. Ellen and Robert did an amazing job - everything is cleared up, it looks absolute amazing. The animals are great, fluffy....:). Our little dog Tiny thinks of it as a... More

The rail carriages are so cozy, it's the perfect size. It was a warm and cozy setting and enjoyed the farm view. We cooked breakfast and dinner here and given fresh chicken eggs. I loved it and would go back.

We stayed at Dunsborough Rail Carriages and Farm Cottages again over the Easter break and had a fabulous time. It’s perfect for a group, a family or a couple, especially if you’d like to take the family dog. The owners/managers are lovely and always willing to help with any queries. They constantly go out of their way, an example of... More

We stayed a couple of nights and we loved the forest surrounding the place, the train carriage was cute, clean and really comfy. Price was affordable, totally recommended. Place was close to everything, town, beach, wineries, etc and the area is full of farm animals and kangaroo.

We had a magic weekend, great surrounding, clean comfortable lodging's where everything worked..So close to the town of Dunsborough we could walk, and we did.. Lamas, chickens, Kangaroos and a black sheep you have a 100 hectares to roam around in. Dog friendly its a perfect place to turn off the world and sit back and enjoy rural life.

An extremely pleasurable stay. This was our second visit and it still lives up to our expectations. Nestled in shady trees with unspoilt grounds. Basic, clean, quiet, no distractions except the kangaroos, rabbits, llamas and dear little goat, including the chickens roaming free. Leave your phone switched off and enjoy the tranquillity. Enjoy a walk through bushland and a BBQ.... More

We stayed here over Easter and had a fab time with a group of friends and our puppy. The cottages are fine although a little tired looking in some areas. We stayed in a deluxe which had 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with a queen and a bunk bed. The cottage was self contained although... More

Thank-you so much to the Team that run Dunsborough Rail Carriages and Farm Cottages. You gave Denise and I a warm welcome and helped us when we required assistance. The Carriage, 2, was well appointed, warm and clean. We wanted for nothing. The grounds were absolutely beautiful and peaceful. Robert, do not cut the grass and just leave the natural... More

We've just returned from three nights staying in one of the railway carriages at Dunsborough. We loved it!! Interestingly, a lot of the other reviews seem to focus on it being a little run down and in need of work. Personally, I think they are missing the point of this place... it's rustic... it's in the middle of the countryside... More
