Charming location and welcoming host

  • 5 of 5

We loved the way the owners renovated this old tobacco kiln. It was warm, cozy and comfortable and the high ceiling gave it space. Inside, we had everything we needed. Outside, we were surrounded by farmland and peace. The farm tour was informative and fascinating. A stay to remember!

Authentic farm stay that is close to Mother nature

  • 5 of 5

Neat farmhouse with access to Dunkeld city centre in less than 15 minutes. It is sited in a working farm that comes with a fantastic farm tour for those who stay 2 nights and more. You are given a good background of how a 'real' farm operates by Karen who is a great host. It is a truly refreshing change from staying in a country hotel.

Peaceful location

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here - the kids especially liked watching the sheep shearing which we were lucky to be there for - and having the lovely Karen show us around the farm and chat to us . We even used some fresh eggs from the farm to make our pasta sauce for tea that night ! A great place for our short stay !

Unique and quality accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Character building with historical link to early 20 th century farming in area. Hosts were very knowledgeable and willing to share their knowledge. Building has a perfect outlook over Mt Sturgeon in the distance and surrounding paddocks. Basic cooking facilities but bathroom and bedding could not be faulted. Everything extremely clean. Hosts were very generous with a wide range of complimentary breakfast foods. Extremely good value for people who want to stay in something more interesting than a motel room. We will be coming back. Perfect base for touring the area around the Southern Grampians.

Lovely Property; Warm and Friendly Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We had the most perfect little getaway in this lovely B&B. Charming and cozy, the house was wonderfully comfortable, with the beautiful view of the mountain to greet us every time we open the door. The owners were warm and friendly, helpful and engaging, but not at all intrusive. No doubt we will try to find our way back again (the children are already asking when!)

One of our best finds on Stayz!
