HAMPSHIRE FARM HOUSE located on our 300 acre cattle farm, overlooking our wonderful dam.
The house itself is a beautifully renovated & luxuriously appointed farm house catering for families or groups of friends looking for a relaxing getaway. We provide all linen and towels and have a well stocked pantry, with spices, oil, coffee, various teas, sugar, salt & pepper and plastic wrap, foil & baking paper to name but a few.
Manjimup is well known for its truffles and if you happen to be staying between May and August, you might like to book yourself on a truffle hunt
We are close to a number of wedding venues in the area so Hampshire Farmhouse a great place for your wedding guests to stay
Simply enjoy a relaxing getaway cooking, eating, wine tasting, watching movies, reading books, listening to music and marvelling at the view.
Our renovated farm house invites you in through the open plan living and dining area with roaring pot belly fire in the colder months, through to a superbly stocked gourmet galley kitchen, cosy sitting area and 4 generous bedrooms.
Wander out onto our large verandah and if you can pull yourself away from the stunning view, prepare a BBQ or perhaps you'd like to try your hand at making a pizza in the pizza oven. There's plenty of room for the whole family to dine under the stars out here as well, with an 8 seater table.
Once the sun goes down and the temperature drops, head back inside for some TV, a DVD or board game, or you may simply like to pull up a beanbag, grab a book or magazine from our extensive library and curl up in front of the slow burning wood combustion heater. It's a tough choice....

Either way, you'll love it here
You will have full access to our home and surrounding large garden. Walking around the area is both enjoyable and relaxing and there are plenty of trails in the surrounding forest.
For obvious reasons, the shed and surrounds is strictly off limits. Please bear in mind that this is a working farm, with livestock and occasional vehicles coming and going so therefore please leave all farm gates as you find them.
The property is surrounded by state forest and the view from our home, overlooking our enormous dam, is just wonderful.
There are also many amazing things to see and do within the surrounding areas of Manjimup, Quinninup, Pemberton, Walpole, Northcliffe and Bridgetown and I have a comprehensive book of recommendations in the house.
I will be available by phone and email during your stay.
There is someone close by who will be able to assist in the event of an emergency and will keep an eye out on things.
As a working farm, our farm manager might be around during your stay, however he will not come anywhere near the house and uses a different gate to access the farm.
