About Karen Keely
We moved to the farm in 1980 and built the farmhouse and cottage where we lived with our 3 sons for many years. We now live just up the hill in our rammed earth house and enjoy the tranquility and the birds.
Why Karen Keely chose Smith Brook
The old orchard is gone now but we have a great veggie garden and some sheep. The creek runs along one boundary and we love walking around the 66 acres of bush and trees. The bird life is wonderful and we sometimes have roos visiting too. The stars at night are wonderful!
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Our handmade houses have real family history and all the boys were involved in the farm life earlier. We love the place and the towering karri trees along the creek.

Home away from home
What a place!!! Karen and Mike have created a very special experience going to this home away from home, i couldn't recommend this place higher.
Everything was sorted not a towel missing, every room is what it says it is and more. The out look from the house and balcony is stunning, so beautiful for a early morning walk. The kids enjoyed every moment and didnt want to leave.
We are so grateful for this experience and will definitely be coming back.
Absolutely amazing family holiday!
We couldn’t recommend this stay more! When we arrived, Karen and Mike came down with wine and cheese, fresh figs and chestnuts to greet us. They could not have been more acccommodating hosts. We would take our toddler to feed the sheep and walk around the property each day which he absolutely loved. The house is so cozy and we loved being able to put the fire on each morning. It’s located half way between Pemberton and Manjimup so you are never short of activities for the kids (definitely recommend the HUGE slide in Manjimup). The kitchen is so well equipped that cooking is a breeze. We will definitely be making this an annual stay. Great for a holiday with kids and friends as the house sleeps 8. Don’t have a bad thing to say about this amazing little farm. We were so sad to leave and can’t wait to be back!!!
Such a wonderful place to stay and unwind! Beautiful gardens to meander through or admire from the windows, lovely rustic home, and a lovely cosy fire on cold nights! Great distance from Pemberton and Manjimup! Karen and Mike are wonderful! Can't wait to return again soon!
Thank you Sarah we love having you and your family stay. It is a joy when people are refreshed by their stay, and we both love our violets! See you next year!
beautiful farm in the forrest
We loved our time at Trewent, thank you for sharing your magical family farm!
Such a warm welcome and beautiful views!
The kids (big and small) had an amazing time exploring the farm and meeting the animals.
Will recommend to friends and family and look forward to our next stay.
What a way to recharge!
This lovely farmhouse is a hidden gem in a peaceful location.
What a way to wake up with a view over a small valley with fresh air and birds chirping.
The house is well equiped and extremely clean with enough room for 8 at an extremely reasonable rate.
The extensive library and games collection kept the family amused all weekend.
The central location to Pemberton and Manjimup makes for the ideal base for a weekend exploring the South west.
Do yourself a favour and stay here, you won't regret it.
Thanks Karen and family we hope to return soon.
So glad you all enjoyed your stay Davin - hope to welcome you back- come anytime!
Lovely farm stay
Really beautiful wooden farmhouse, with views over the property and friendly sheep to pat!
