This farm house has a bull nose verandah where people can sit, read, chat, watch the sheep and chooks graze, birds bath or listen to music, a BBQ is also on the verandah.

People may bring their dog/ dogs the yard is fully fenced, however because its a working farm, if dogs are taken outside the house yard, it must be kept on a lead.

Inside are two queen size bedrooms one with a single bed in it for a young person, and one with a cot and change table. Also there is a double bed room and one single bedroom, all have everything you need in them, including electric blankets..

The lounge room has a TV DVD Player,and wood heater we only supply wood for your first night baged wood can be puchased in town at both service stations and the IGA. This house has a separate dinning room with wood heater, library, board games, a table tennis, and Foos Ball in the house.There are no carpets, polished jarrah floor boards with mats in bedrooms.

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

This farm stay has everything you need, only need to bring your food.

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.

Warm regards

Very very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

A lovely quaint and well loved property, great for family getaways, and has all of the needs a holidaying family would need. The basket of fresh eggs is a great welcome. It gives a sense of remoteness but is close enough to town for those last minute things.

Perfect Getaway Back To Nature

  • 5 of 5

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.

Good farm setting

  • 4 of 5

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

  • 4 of 5

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.

Hope to see you all again, with your furry friends. Warm regards Donna
