We stayed nearly 10 years ago when the property was run by different owners. Again we were not disappointed with a fantastic 2 week holiday. Fiona & Tim made the 8 of us (two families) more than welcome and the morning sheep feeding was great fun for young and old.
Views are amazing and full moons, lighting in the nearby hills to amazing sunsets occurring every night. Wineries nearby are fantastic and the 'inpromptu' dinner with Fiona & Tim along with a rehearsal of our band made the 2 weeks complete!
My thoughts for overseas visitors reading this; if you want a real taste of Australian farm life, only a few hours from a major city and 20 min from larger towns, this is a great place to see it all, in a comfortable setting.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Westgate is a spacious, very comfortable house sleeping up to 12 in four main bedrooms with a sofa bed in a private room off the sitting room. There are 3 bathrooms and a very well equipped kitchen plus a barbecue outside. The house is located within an expansive established garden with ample outdoor eating areas and a swimming pool. There is a slow combustion wood heater (wood provided) for those not-so-hot days and reverse cycle air-conditioning. The views from the house are stunning in all directions and a gentle stroll up along the ridge will provide 360 degree views of both the Pyrenees and the Grampians. A perfect place to watch the sunset!Westgate is situated within the renowned Grampians wine growing region and close to Ararat, Stawell and Halls Gap. ... more less
