Lavendale Farm is situated 15K south of York in Western Australia on the banks of the Avon River. The property is approximately 64ha of gently sloping land lying between Great Southern Highway and the river.
There is a 2.5km river frontage which is fenced off from the main farming activities. All of the river bank area is natural bush and the property is a "Land for Wildlife" site. The country style farm house was completed in July 2007 and offers beautiful views of the surrounding hills and farmland.
Lavendale Farm is a place to come and relax under the wide verandahs, watch the animals graze and walk among the vast array of native Australian trees which have been planted as shelter belts and hosts in the sandalwood plantation.

Beautiful views of the nearby hills.
The Orchard Chalet is closer to our nut farm and we are adding more fruit trees to its garden. The veranda offers country views, and plenty of room for the outdoor setting and BBQ. The queen size bedroom has an ensuite and all other features are the same as Rose Cottage.
These cottages provide a quiet retreat for couples. We have kept the rates as low as we can to allow that special time together on our lovely farm. All you need to bring is your food. The kitchens have full stoves with ovens and lots of pots and pans and crockery etc. to make each other some very romantic dinners. Beautiful wood fires add to the romance of these lovely cottages. We do not recommend these cottages for children as there are certain features which have not been “Child Proofed”.
The Red Room
We have one guest room in our residence with a large en-suite bathroom and access to the veranda through romantic French Windows. This room has been taken out of our on-line booking system, but is available if numbers in other units are too great. It makes a great addition to The Lodge and Kirribilli if you have more than 14 people, or just have a couple in the group who would prefer some privacy. Please contact us directly if you wish to book The Red Room.
The guest room can be made up as either twin singles or king size bed. We have tea and coffee making facilities and a guest fridge in the room to keep your drinks nice and cold. Guests have access to our beautiful Music Room boasting a grand piano and comfortable chesterfields. Or just relax with your own TV in the arm chairs in the room.

Breakfast is served in the huge country kitchen or on the veranda overlooking the farm and animals.
