The Apple in Bridgetown is a relaxing get away - a gorgeous heritage farm house to call your own for a night, weekend or week. 3 hours drive south of Perth, The Apple sleeps up to 12 people. 2 bathrooms, internet, modern amenities plus old fashioned fun including wood stoves and open fireplaces.
The Apple is a 1920s family home on 8 acres of land on the Blackwood River, Bridgetown WA. 3km from the townsite.
It was once the farm house of a large apple orchard. It has a huge lounge room with 2 fireplaces which in the 1940's hosted monthly dances.
Bridgetown is a gorgeous treasure in the south west. It's a small town located in a picturesque valley. The town centre is lively, with quality cafes, restaurants, wineries and boutiques. It has a long running annual Blue Festival in November, plus has many other art and culture events throughout the year.
It's easy to get caught up cooking, relaxing and never leaving the property, but it's close to heaps if you want to explore more.
This is a country heritage home, not a commercial hotel. If you require your accommodation to be 100% flawless this probably isn't the place for you - however if you cherish character, open space, wood fires and gardens we think you'll love our house.

Enjoyed our stay, lovely property and close to town and far enough away to enjoy the quiet and listen to the birds in the trees. Would love to go back in winter months to experience the warmth of the fires. Ideal for all ages with books, games and DVD's. I would recommend it to others!

Olde world perfection
Gorgeous property with lots of space and all the facilities you require. Particularly loved the high ceilings and the fireplaces, that provided plenty of warmth on those chilly days.The kitchen was extremely well equipped. Lots of verandah space and shady gardens. Close to town by car; and also the local farmers markets by the caravan park on the highway. Would definitely stay here again.

What a find!!! After visiting Bridgetown every year for the last 6 years for a few days in March/April & staying at various accomm, we will be coming back to stay at The Apple for sure! Our group loved the antique & interesting furniture, unique bits & pieces on mantlepieces, bookshelves & dressing tables, the garden which is fantastic for kids (& adults). The house itself is very well-equipped & we felt settled within minutes of arrival. If you're looking for a rustic, traditional, farm style experience with the modern touches (incl a great kitchen), I highly recommend The Apple.
