Welcome to Lavendale Farm
Your Hosts – Katherine Jane & Merv Taylor
We look forward to meeting you after you have settled into your cottage. Lavendale Farm is our home and we are pleased to share it with you.
Lavendale Farm is agritourism at its best. Come and relax, watch the animals graze and walk among the vast array of native Australian trees. We have a little bit of everything you might find in any farm in Western Australia. We are Australian Tourism Accredited and China Ready Accredited. Please see our side bar for more information.
Our property includes 58 Ha of gently sloping land on the banks of the Avon River just 15km south of the historical town of York in Western Australia’s Avon Valley.
We have designed our Farmstay to accommodate families, groups and couples in self catering cottages. However, Breakfast Baskets and BBQ dinner packs are available with 1 week’s notice. Just ask for our 1 page brochure if these interest you.
Younger children will enjoy our play ground area with a sand pile, trampoline, swings, and a wooden fort. We have an indoor activity room with table tennis, foosball and a huge drawing board.
Please join us in the evenings to help feed the animals and gather eggs from the hens. We have horses, ponies, donkeys, alpacas, cattle, a couple of performing pigs, pet sheep and milking goats. A variety of chickens, ducks and turkeys free range in the orchard and we sometimes have ducklings and baby chicks. We even have a very friendly ostrich.
There are 9 self-contained cottages on the farmstay. Have a look at our Gallery photo called “Birds Eye View”.
We have provided all the electrical appliances you will need to enjoy your break away from home. This includes full kitchens, TVs, and evaporative air conditioning during the warmer months. During winter we have enclosed wood fires in some cottages and split air con in others.
We welcome Corporate Retreats or craft groups, family reunions, weddings, Church Camps and club get togethers. We have a large dining room and meeting rooms.
Where else but at our farmstay can you hand feed an ostrich, pat a bull and scratch a pig?
