“Great place for children”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

We probably stayed in the smallest and oldest cottage No1. We checked out the other cottages and they were more spacious.
The views are great and there are DVDs, bbq's and well equipped kitchen and lots of things for the children to do.
Helping with feeding the animals was great. The kids loved that and their daily pony ride. The tractor ride was also exciting.
Great location, relaxing and so much space for kids to roam, have adventures and explore. We will be back!

We stayed at Ferguson Farmstay in January 2012, in Chalet 2 which has a great view over the dam and hills to Bunbury and the Indian Ocean. On Australia Day we were able to watch the fireworks in Bunbury while listening to the show simulcast on the radio which was wonderful.

We had 4 adults and 3 children under 5 comfortably staying with plenty of room for more children. Two rooms had double beds and the third room had 2 bunks plus 1 roll away bed. The facilities were excellent including supply of a barbecue and outdoor setting, drinking water is good and showers hot and nice after a dusty day on the farm. The main living area and 2 double bed bedrooms have air conditioning which was a relief with 40+ celcius days.

The farm activities were excellent - every morning the children were able to help with feeding the animals - calves, emus, pig, chickens, kangaroo and rabbits with scraps from their own chalet and each morning the children were given a pony ride around the beautiful gardens. One morning children and parents enjoyed a tractor ride around the property. The farm also has a trampoline, tennis court, swing set and dam for swimming and canoeing (life jackets available from office) plus other animals. The office has DVDs and board games to borrow.

Ferguson Farmstay was an ideal location to explore the area and we visited Harvey (Ha-Ve Cheese a must), gnomesville, local wineries and breweries, Dardanup glass and pottery studio and enjoyed drives around the rolling hills. From Ferguson, Eaton is a 15 minute drive and Bunbury and it's beaches 20 minutes if needed.

We never tired of the view and enjoyed watching the children run and run. They would dress as fairies, play chasey, fly their kites, play ball games and watch the cows come and go from the adjoining paddock. It was such a beautiful stay. I highly recommend Ferguson Farmstay to local and international travellers.

The owners are warm and welcoming and treat all people including the little ones with respect and genuine warmth

One great aspect of Ferguson Farmstay is all the activites are included in the price of the accommodation - while researching farmstays I noticed more and more are charging one price for accommodation and additional costs for feeding animals, pony rides, tractor rides etc so therefore Ferguson Farmstay is a fantastic, value for money experience.

.

Room Tip: All have beautiful views across the valley to Bunbury.
