“Fantastic weekend away!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Just spent last weekend in Albany at the Greenfield Farmstay... Had a Wonderful stay!!! Wish we stayed for longer....

We were looking for somewhere to stay in Albany while we visited family and I'm so happy that we came across this farmstay... Dave and Jeanette are the most welcoming and friendly owners and made us feel right at home. From the moment we pulled in the drive way we felt like we were with family.

The kids were excited about staying on the farm, the big hit for them was the kangaroos.. being able to bottle feed the orphan joeys made their weekend. The kindness and patience both Jeanette and Dave had for the kids was really was warming. It was like a visit to Granny and Pop's for the children.

The fresh warm bread brought downstairs to us in the mornings with homemade jams was delicious. There was also a good array of other options for the continental breakfast... And the walnut and date slice topped up each day, well that was too good to share with the kids

There is plenty of room for a family with multiple children, ours decided they wanted to bunk in with us and we had two full size fold out beds in the room with us and still had ample space to get around. The bedspreads are all lovingly made by Jeanette, it is so nice to see patchwork quilting still around as it's certainly not appreciated like it used to be. Some might feel the place is a little dated, but it was very homely, clean and cosy

In the kitchenette there is a full size fridge, a microwave, a two hotplate small oven unit, crockery and utensils.. even the plastic wrap (very handy for packing the slice when heading out on outing ) There is also a BBQ available to use out front of the accommodation.

The Accommodation is a B&B where you are sharing someone's home. The Hosts had the upstairs, guests downstairs, both with own access points as not to disturb the others. It was a good experience for the children to put in place; respect for other peoples belongings, politeness to their elders and maintaining an acceptable level of noise.. We were out both evenings until about 9pm and out of respect tried to keep our noise to a minimum when we were coming in. Luckily Dave and Jeanette are early risers and we didn't have to stress about our kids being too loud and waking them..

Even after we left they were still gracious hosts ringing to notify us we left behind toiletries and offering to post it to us... and tonight I received another call to let us know that the cow that we were hoping was going to calve while we were there, had just had her calf and it was a girl they named Jasmine after our daughter.. So we now have one VERY happy little girl..

Looking forward to returning..

We have arrived in Albany on December 29 with our motorhome and no place to stay - months before all caravan parks were fully booked... By cruising around and looking for the site to stay overnight (and thinking where we can charge our phones and battery) we saw the sign "Greenfield Farm Stay" and I decided to try my luck. We drove in the nice quiet garden filled with flowers, feeling strait away the positive energy of the place, and I stepped through the sliding glass door (with TripAdvisor sticker on it) of the eco-looking house. Fresh apricots were laying on the table in preparation to be turned into jam. Cosy sofa, fireplace, dining table, huge flat LCD TV set... Soon the kind old lady greeted me, and I explained our situation. I've been leaded to the backyard where I saw the friendly dog (another good sign!), cat, kakadu and... two little kangaroos laying in the blanket pouches. Very quickly our problem was solved - we got a place in the garden behind the garage with electricity, water and even our own toilet (despite we had one in the motorhome, it was very useful!)! We were even invited to use the shower in the house. We had spent 9 wonderful starlit quiet nights by these amaisingly hospitable family, surrounded by fruit trees, sheeps, calves, "chooks" (chicken), kangaroos (there are 5 of them and you can cuddle them!), rabbits and birds, traveling by days to different beaches, nature sights, wineries and attractions around Albany - the location of the farm is just excellelent! We have even got a car from Dave to drive into the city (like for the New Year fireworks) - it's really just 5 min from the center and all shops. I have seen the guests roms - they are cosy and spotless clean. I just can imagine what a paradise it is for a family with kids from the city - a real nature retreat. Plus, Dave is a very good chatter with a lot of useful insider information about everything around and enthusiastic caretaker of a excellent collection of Jaguar oldtimer cars (he will even take you to the free tour around, if you're interested!) I really admire his energy and real Australian mateship spirit.
So, to cut it shot - highly recommendable for excellent vacations in Albany!

We spent 4 days here in January 2012. Whilst down there, Albany experienced one of their hottest days, but it was still fairly cool at the farmstay. The two main bedrooms have lovely big windows looking onto the driveway and garden and it is a lovely view to wake up to. My husband and son especially looked forward to the freshly cooked bread every morning with the homemade jam. My daughter loved going out during the day and coming back to find that the biscuit jar was refilled with yummy homemade biscuits. Our dog was also made most welcome and the lovely hosts kept an eye on her when we had to leave her there when we were going somewhere we couldn't take her. This place is close to town and also close to the beautiful Frenchmans Bay and Goode Beach - our favourite places for swimming in Albany. My only concern is that we felt that out of politeness we tried to be quiet at night so as to not disturb the hosts - so perhaps if you want to rev out at night, this isn't the place for you, but if you want a relaxing homely type feel, then go for it.

My family and I stayed here in March 2011. I was in Albany for a seminar and we decided to make a weekend of it.
Albany is lovely and is so much better than I recalled it from my trips as a child.
The twon is growing and the surrounding areas are gorgeous.
The farmstay was perfectly fine for my family of 2 adults and 4 children. It was cute staying on a farmlet. The joeys were cute, the fresh bread was a nice touch. The bed was a little firm for mine but perfectly fine.
Teh shower - great idea with the towel warmer but I can be a bit fanatical about my showers and this shower was too low, too small and too little pressure. The kitchenette is not really made for cooking and sitting for meals is a bit ad hoc.
That said, it is a lovely spot. Considering it is barely 5 mins out of the town it is truly a quiet, rural location. I liked it so much I'd consider buying in the area.

We stayed on the farm from 9 April to 11 April 2011.
Dave & Jeanette were great hosts. Both of them were very warm and friendly. We enjoyed our stay at the farm and had a wonderful and great time. Dave showed us around the farm. We learnt alot about sheep, cows, chickens, kangaroos and fruit trees. We saw the 3 lovely wedding vintage wedding cars Dave had. We tasted tamarillos and grapefruit from Dave's trees. Dave showed us how Spottie round the sheep up.
It was fun feeding Dom & Daisy, the cute baby joeys and playing with Spottie, the friendly dog, who greets you every morning.
Jeanette baked her delicious multi grain bread and we had her wonderful home made jams and sliced peaches with syrup. Jeanette is amazing with her hands. She sews beautiful dresses and suits for the wedding dolls and teddy bears. She embroided the pillow cases too!
We are looking forward to our next stay at the farm especially to see the 2 new female calves Dave named after our names, Jackie & Stella.
Thank you Dave & Stella for a memorable and enjoyable stay.

Found the Greenfield Farmstay on Trip Advisor. Never regretted staying there.

Stayed for 2 nights - 16-18 Dec 2010. Was there with our elderly inlaws and 2 girls (age 6 & 11). Loved every minute of it.

Spottie were the girls favourite. Then there was Dom & Daisy, whom the girls love to carry and stroke. They even helped Jeanette to look for the joeys, who went over the fence.

We fell in love with the freshly baked bread. Boy! Did we want some more! Even my 80 odd year old inlaws loved it. Just great with the many homemade jams and butter. Had to taste the organic eggs and they were yummy and so sweet! It's a home away from home.

Dave is ... superman! What a brilliant host!

The rooms were clean. The beds were cosy. Everyone enjoyed our stay there, especially the girls, who adored Uncle Dave. Hubby was facinated by Dave's vintage cars; they were beautiful!

Thank you for the wonderful memories, Dave and Jeanette!
