The country style farm house was completed in July 2007 and offers beautiful views of the surrounding hills and farmland.

How and where to find us!

In the heart of the Avon Valley in Western Australia’s wheatbelt area is the Historical town of York. York was the first inland town settled by the Swan River Colony in 1833. It is just 96Km from the centre of Perth. About an hour and 20 minutes from the domestic air-port or an hour and 30 mins from the international air-port.

To reach York drive through the Perth hills to Mundaring and continue on through Sawyers Valley. The turn off to York is at the BP Lakes Service Station.

Lavendale Farm is just 10 minute drive south of York on the main Beverley Road. About 13km out of York is the BE20 marker, indicating Beverley is 20Km away. At this sign is the first of our Lavendale Farmstay signs, indicating our entrance is 1km further on. Drive past the cottages and our farmhouse to our main entrance. There is another sign at 200m to go. Once in the main entrance drive back along the fenceline to check in at the Farmhouse. If travelling from Beverley, our main entrance is 1km past the Y15 marker. We are on the river side of the road.

If you do not drive or don’t wish to hire a car, consider contacting Happy Go Lucky Tour and Charters.  They have baby seats and booster seats for the children.  0438 930 257

This family owned company can take a group of up to 6 people from Perth to Lavendale Farm, then pick you a day or two or more later and return to Perth.  All for around $400.00. For larger groups of between 6 and 13 the rate is around $500.00.  You might even be able to organise a bit of touring with them.


Local Attractions

Lavendale Farm has plenty to do if you want to just relax close to “home”. The river is a very peaceful place to walk along. It is completely natural and the only paths are made by kangaroos. In places it is hard going, but finding a nice place to sit on the bank is worthwhile.

Always wear boots when walking in the bush. The sandalwood plantation is great to wander through and the animals will always appreciate a scratch behind to ear or a brushing if you are used to horses. The children’s playground is a hit with the kids and parents can relax in the shade of a huge York Gum while watching the children.

Lavendale Farm is an ongoing project. We are always adding to our facilities and our animal family.

  • Katherine & Merv. Little gems like this are hard to find and the welcome with food exceptional. You made our holiday great. I will spread the word back home.

  • Very relaxing & enjoyable weekend. We are part of a group of 14 that stayed in several cottages, but Bali Hai became the hub for all our meals & socialising as it has a fantastic outdoor area to cater for us all. Enjoyed having the TV to watch the footy. Beautiful piece of paradise, loved the sunsets. Lots of great memories made.
    - Sue and co.

    - Colin, Bianca, Lyric, Christian and Joshua

Terms & conditions

We require a deposit of at least $50.00 per night per cottage to secure your booking. If paying by credit card over the phone the balance can be paid when you arrive. If you choose to pay the deposit direct to our bank account the balance must be paid 3 days before your arrival to confirm the booking. Group bookings including The Lodge will be asked for an additional $200.00 bond. This is because access is given to The Common Room for the group. The bond will be returned if there is no additional cleaning required or damage incurred.

Cancellation less than 3 days before check-in time of your booking day will forfeit the full amount. Cancellation more than 3 days but less than 1 week forfeits the deposit. Cancellation greater than 1 week will enable a refund of the deposit less 10%.

For bookings on long weekends and for groups of more than 2 cottages, the length for cancellation notice is trebled. 3 days becomes 9 days, 1 week becomes 3 weeks.


This is a rural property with farm animals. We do not have enclosed yards for dogs. If you want to bring your dog, please ask about our “Dog Policy”.  A nightly surcharge applies.
