Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best farm stay! We absolutely loved our holiday at Gumleaf. The cottage is gorgeous. The animals are delightful, well loved and cared for. Each morning and afternoon we all had an opportunity to feed the animals. Cathy is such an amazing person and host. we thoroughly enjoyed our little walks and pony rides. Thanks for such an amazing time. We will be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best time ever I could not agree more, we must have been the next guests after Tang and everything that has been said I completely agree with, my grandchildren whilst being driven to feed the animals in the trailer (plus hay carrots etc) just said "best time ever" totally unprompted, the constant smiles on their little faces priceless, Cathy has the patience and kindness of a saint, we will return without a doubt ... thank you Cathy x

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home away from home We stayed 3 nights at Cathy's place and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Our son was in tears when we had to leave as he had grown attached to Tux, the sheepdog. Cathy is a wonderful host who pays attention to details--her cottage is well-stocked with utensils, dinnerware, cleaning equipment, etc. to make the cottage feel like home. We were worried about the cold in winter but it was not an issue as there was heating in every room (and comfy fleece robes too!). There was a lot of information about things to do in the vicinity (super accessible!). She left us a welcome basket and even marshmallows on the mantle so that urbanites like us can have a go at roasting marshmallows. Our children (3yo and 5yo) were entertained by the toys, books, stuffed animals in their bedroom. The place is very child-friendly with the availability of a high chair, baby bathtub, child guard for bed, trampoline and playground/sand pit. Cathy herself is a gentle soul with a heart for the animals and what she does--she was very patient in showing the children around the farm and encouraging them with the animals. This is a place run with a lot of love and offers an intimate experience into authentic farm life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great farmstay for the kids We enjoyed our stay at the Gumleaf Cottage Farmstay very much. The kids had a great time interacting with the animals. We can see that Cathy takes great pride in her animals and has a strong bond with them which makes the place feel homely and welcoming. Every animal has a name! We especially loved Tux the dog who was ever ready for a game of catch or ball. The kids were given a chance to ride on a horse, cuddle the rabbits, collect eggs from the chooks and more. The cottage is homely and cosy.The toys in the kids room entertained the kids every evening (during the day we were too busy pottering around the farm!) Location was good, 7-10 min drive to nearby stretch of supermarkets/stores. 20 minutes from Swan Valley which made it a good base for exploring the wineries. Cathy herself is a lovely and accommodating host, and her part time help are also very friendly with us. We would definitely return one day if we have the chance!!
