Myrtlemae Farm

Balingup cottage rustic

Hidden away behind state forest one kilometre from the town centre of Balingup, Myrtlemae Farm is a 24-acre property that features meandering gardens and stunning views over-looking the Blackwood River Valley.

The cottage itself is a former stable with flagstone flooring salvaged from the old Balingup hotel. It has been meticulously re-purposed and now features a mix of mid-century Australia furniture, vintage homewares and modern furnishings, services (think comfy beds and a good shower) and appliances.

There is no TV, but you can stare out the widescreen window and take in the nature channel all day and there is a host of games and puzzles to entertain – not forgetting all the things you can do on the property. Like enjoying a cup of tea and a chat in a quiet spot under the dappled light of a magnificent tree, feeding the horses, sitting on the deck and watching the kangaroos graze at dusk or reading a book next to the wood fire. Or, a venture further afield with a walk around the old trotting racecourse trails in the adjacent state forest, a venture into the township for a wander, an afternoon picnic at the golden valley tree farm, a visit to the Old Cheese factory or a swim at one of the amazing nearby water holes.

With a queens size bed and two king singles, the cottage comfortably sleeps 4 and there is a fold-out couch for another two if needed.
