About the property

Charming original mill house, fully self contained, in idyllic setting

We invite you to holiday in our original mill house, located in the Dwellingup Heritage Precinct. Dwellingup is a small town set in the jarrah forest, 100 km from Perth. The mill house has been renovated so that you will be cosy and comfortable during your stay. The extensive, well-maintained gardens surrounding the cottage are glorious, and filled with bird life.

The comfortable lounge room has a slow-combustion wood burning fire place and reverse cycle air-conditioning. The well-stocked kitchen has all the appliances and crockery you will need if you choose to eat in.

There are three bedrooms: the main bedroom has a queen bed; the second bedroom has two single beds; the small third bedroom has a double bed. All bedrooms are made up with quality bed linen and warm quilts and blankets. In the bathroom, there is continuous hot water for your bath or shower.

There is a large paved undercover area at the back of the cottage, with a gas barbecue and outdoor dining setting.

The north-facing front verandah is ideal for enjoying the bird life or relaxing with a drink as the sun lowers in the sky.

An iron and ironing board are provided. However, unless by prior arrangement, guests have no access to laundry facilities.

Please note that NO SMOKING is permitted, and NO PETS are allowed.

Minimum booking is 2 nights

The quoted price is FULLY INCLUSIVE. There is no extra charge for linen & bedding, nor for cleaning.

Check-in is from 2.00 pm, and check-out is by 11.00 am.

"I can’t thank you enough for the wonderfully comfortable stay The Mill House provided us with this past weekend. The cottage is simply gorgeous and you have put so much thought into every detail and provided every possible comfort needed for the ideal, relaxing break away from home. I have already recommended The Mill House to everyone I have spoken to since being home and we will definitely be back…again and again!" (2017)

"Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful house in Dwellingup. I have never stayed in a better equipped holiday place." (2015)

"Your house is utterly charming and we had a wonderfully relaxing time there. You have thought of everything that a visitor might need." (2014)

" had thought of everything you could need. I would stay again in a heartbeat." (2013)

"We had such a lovely time in your beautiful cottage - we adored the garden and were very impressed by how clean and well cared for your cottage is." (2012)


This is a large (approximately 2000 square metres), peaceful, attractive corner property, with well-maintained beautiful gardens. The cottage is an original mill house, dating from the early 1900s. It has been renovated and redecorated to provide very comfortable modern living. The cottage is located on the edge of town, overlooking the State Forest, yet an easy walk from the centre of Dwellingup.

The mill house is wonderful in any season: in winter, after an invigorating walk in the jarrah forest, relax in front of a wood fire with a glass of wine, while a fragrant stew bubbles on the stove; in summer, enjoy a cool drink on the front verandah overlooking the bush, after a day spent exploring the nearby Murray River in Lane Poole Reserve; spring and autumn offer wonderful weather to explore the bush, discover wildflowers, including many varieties of orchids, and relax in the bird-filled garden.

You can remain comfortable in the mill house, no matter the weather. There is a wood-burning fireplace with a glass door, as well as reverse cycle air-conditioning/heating. The 2 larger bedrooms & the kitchen have ceiling fans installed. Also portable heaters and fans are provided, according to the season.


Dwellingup is just over an hour's drive south of Perth and is set in the Darling Range among lovely jarrah and marri forest. It is a beautiful, peaceful setting, ideal for an active holiday or a relaxing break from the stresses of modern life.

There is plenty to do and see in the Dwellingup area.

The Hotham Valley steam train is based in Dwellingup, and there is a steam train ride into the forest.

The Bibbulmun Track passes through town, as does the Munda Biddi cycle trail.

The Murray River and Lane Poole Reserve are 10 minutes away by car.

There is a lovely cafe in town, as well as several wineries and orchards nearby.

The Forest Heritage Centre and the School of Fine Wood gallery are well worth a visit.

The Visitor Centre has information about walking, cycling and canoeing in the area, and a fascinating display of photographs and memorabilia from the disastrous bushfire of 1961.

Mountain biking and canoeing equipment are available for hire in Dwellingup.

Lovely little cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great mini break at the Dwellingup Mill House, lovely little cottage had everything we needed and was well maintained. Kids had a ball running around the big garden and were already begging to stay again as we left. We will be back!
