The characterful railway carriage has been completely refurbished for the intention of a bed and breakfast and has a likeness to a 'tiny house'.
Located on a vineyard in the Great Western region it is a peaceful and beautiful place to get away and explore the area, or simply rest.
One night is never enough to explore the area, so try to book for at least two nights.
If you are lucky enough to book during vintage (between February - May) you might get to see some harvest in action.
Walk through the original narrow door to enter the main living area. At one end is a king size bed, the other has the living area and kitchenette.
Step down to a spacious rustic in appearance styled bathroom. Sit, relax and watch the birdlife over the vineyard and dam on the front deck. The deck has a hooded BBQ with a side burner for cooking meals.
There is a lawn area below the deck that leads to the dam with a wooden picnic table and a fire drum to have a campfire during colder months.
The railway Bed and Breakfast is located on the family vineyard where the family home is also located. Your accommodation is fully self contained with a private entrance and separate parking.
A continental breakfast is provided and will be on the bench when you arrive. Where possible we use homemade jams and preserves. There is a herb garden next to the carriage guests can use for cooking.
The accommodation has a reverse cycle air conditioner to keep you warm and cool. It is also well insulated so, comfortable all year round.
If you are arriving late the sensor light will turn on automatically.
Please refer to the ‘check in’ instructions on how to get to you accommodation and where to park.
There is a wine tasting room near the house that is open to the public on the first weekend of every month between 12-5pm. It is also open by appointment and available to guests, with notice. (Please note appointments will not be available between 19th December 2029 and 6th of January 2021.
There is a pool on the property for the private use of the family. It may occasionally be available to guests upon request if convenient for the hosts.
The family home and sheds on the property are private.
There are tracks around the property as well as through the adjacent Westgate Reserve. We ask that guests do not walk through the vineyard due to the spread of pests and disease.
Other things to note
Because of the steps from the car park, on the deck and down to the bathroom and the original narrow doorways, this property is not suitable for people with mobility issues.
We have a friendly border collie dog named Milo and a cat named Patty. Neither are welcome in your accommodation, but may come to say hello. If you are worried about dogs or cats, please let us know and we will keep them away during your stay.
