There is a large decking off the dinning room, a perfect place for an outdoor meal or to sit and enjoy the open spaces.

We have a large bush block with abundance of wild flowers and kangaroos,a perfect place for a picnic. Also if people wish to bring their pushbikes, Ward Road is a safe road to ride on, also you are welcome to ride your bike around the 3 km plantation road, where there is no traffic at all. Very safe for riding your bike. All must wear helmets.

This farm stay house is 9 KM out of Mount Barker, thus between the Stirling Ranges and the Porongurups.Denmark is 50KM from Ward Road and Albany is 65KM and has easy access to the Plantagenet Porongurups and Frankland River Winerys.

Prices are $120 per couple per night, an extra adult is $25 per person per night and for children, $20 per child per night, babies are free. There is no charge for dogs, and a fenced off kennel area is in the garden, also Halsey Hounds boarding kennels is close by at 31173 Albany Highway, Mount Barker, Phone

As this farm is a working farm and there are dams on the property, althought the house is well fenced off from the dams it is important that parents are fully aware.

Please do not go down Wilson Road, Google Earth recommends Wilson Road but no you must go straight to Ward Road which runs off Albany Highway this will take you straight to the Gum Trees Farm House.

Have a safe journey.

                                        Cosy farmhouse

                                        KATHRYN P.Perth, Western Australia, Australia

                                        We loved our stay in your cute and cosy farmhouse and hope to come back again. Our dog loved it too!

                                        Perfect Getaway Back To Nature

                                        JANETTE R.Perth, WA, Australia

                                        We all loved our stay here and didn't want to leave...the house is awesome. Everywhere you look there is more and more interesting items to look at.

                                        The kids had the best time playing board games together. The table tennis and table soccer sure did get a work out!

                                        It was the perfect place to stay and use as a base to get out and see the Porongurup Range and the Stirling Ranges.

                                        Donna, Laura and Scott were really fantastic people and so helpful with everything.

                                        I would highly recommend a stay here anytime.

                                        Wow thank you so very much for your lovely comments about our farm house, gave us a warm fuzzy feeling. Also Laura and Scott said to say thank you for leaving the house so lovely and clean. It was their first time and your family made it so easy to get the house ready for our next guest. What beautiful well mannered boys you both have, hope to have you all back again one day soon. Regards Donna

                                        Fantastic Location

                                        LISA G.Perth, Western Australia, Australia

                                        I loved this property. Very quiet location. Will definitely stay here again.

                                        Thank you Lisa for your lovely comments about our farm stay. Guests and comments like yours make it all worth while. Hope to see you back again one day. Warm regards Donna

                                        Good farm setting

                                        DAVID Z.WA, Australia

                                        Very quiet and private farm, good to run away from the noisy city.

                                        Very friendly owners. Thanks Donna and Rob.

                                        Plenty of things to do, read a book, listen to music, watch TV, play table games ( all provided), sit at the veranda in the afternoon, or just a relaxing walk trough the farm.

                                        The house can give you a "back in the time" experience, full of memories and old fashion artefacts.

                                        Near the centre and conveniently located if you want to visit the national parks near Mount Barker.

                                        Very Interesting

                                        Tammy M.Perth, Western Australia, Australia

                                        This property was very interesting and enjoyable to stay at. It is ideal for anyone with pets and kids would love it. The locality is great due to the proximity to Mt Barker, Porongorups, Denmark and Albany.

                                        Owner's Response:

                                        Thank you Tammy for such positive comments about our farm stay. We sometimes wonder, is it worth the financial outlay we must pay, but when we get lovely comments like yours we definitely know, yes it is worth it, thank you. Hope to see you all again, with your furry friends. Warm regards Donna

                                        Relaxation central!

                                        What a wonderful location and house. We loved every minute of our 5 day stay here. Aussie farm life at its best. So central to everything, the Stirlings, the Porongorups, Albany and Denmark.

                                        Owner's Response:

                                        Thank you so much Rebecca for such a lovely comment about our farm stay, makes us feel good too, and also a big thank you for leaving the house so lovely and clean.. I saw the curly feathered rooster on top of the hen house, funny little guy. Look forward to seeing you both again one day, warm regards Donna and Rob
