I booked Lavendale farm for a group of girls looking for a nice place to getaway from it all. It was the perfect destination and I will be recommending it to friends and family. Farmer Katherine and Farmer Merv have done an excellent job in setting up this B&B. The animals are adorable and so well loved which is wonderful... More

I visited Lavendale for a 3 day trip with friends and was very pleased with the experience. Farmer Katherine and Farmer Merv were both very welcoming and accommodating, and the accommodation itself was beautiful. Loved feeding all the animals and the fresh bread and eggs provided were delicious. Would definitely come back for a return stay!

Staying here when visiting nearby is a must. They have animal feeding time where you can race sheep, watch a pig inhale an apple and... More

This gorgeous farm stay is located 10 minutes out of York (2 hours out of Perth). If you are keen to explore what WA has to offer, you must come to York. York is a quaint old town that shows you what early WA life was like. Lavendale farm reflects this as you stay on Merv and Katherine's property, with... More

The location is simply stunning, with nice, well furnished cabins. The highlight by far is the animals. Animal feeding time should be a fixture of your itinerary each day. Lookout though, the sheep are faster than they appear.

We were then shown to our room - Bali Hai - which was wonderfully set up and had everything we needed. Bali Hai has two bedrooms, one with a queen... More

We stayed only for 2 nights, but wished it could have been longer. Farmers Merv and Katherine were very friendly and helpful, and the added bonus of bread and eggs was delicious! The animals were great fun, and I'm sure anyone from 4 to 94 could enjoy the experience of feeding time (a must do, at least once, for anyone... More

150 acres of gently sloping land on the Avon River. We have natural bush, crop and farm animals. Five self contained cottages with 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms, plus a B&B room in the farmhouse. We also have a small conference room. Each cottage and the B&B room have full bathrooms most with bath. Cottages with different themes makes it just a little different.
