This 2 bedroom cottage is ideal for a quiet family holiday. Outside the front window is a small natural lake ringed by paperbark trees home to a variety of beautiful Australian birds, a bird feeder is also available for you to interact with. The kitchen is fully equipped & all bedding is supplied. There is a bathroom with a toilet and shower, as well as a laundry. All you need to do is bring yourself and a supply of food!

The fireplace is functional if you so wish to use it, firewood would be supplied free of charge, the first bin would be split for you. There are also bird feeders outside the living room window and near the lake for you to interact with the huge variety of different birds in the area.

You can enjoy an authentic farm experience! We are a working farm, you are most welcome to walk around interacting with our cattle and help us during feeding time. If we have a tractor job, the kids are free to come on up for a ride and have a chance at steering if they want.

Coot Farmstay is conveniently situated for you to visit all the places nearby. We are just under 30 minutes drive away from Denmark and Albany. Visit also the magnificent rocks at Porongurup National Park, just 15 minutes away! If you are up for a more exciting adventure, try hiking the striking Stirling Range 45 minutes away, you will be rewarded with an amazing view of the surrounding area from the lofty Bluff Knoll.

Please note that for 2 singles staying in separate rooms, there is a $20 per night surcharge.

Please also note, we don't accept pets or children under the age of 8 due to safety on the farm.

The best of country hospitality
An Australian farmstay experience with helpful, friendly & welcoming hosts.

Accommodation is a homely but very comfortable 2 bedroom self contained cottage with full kitchen facilities.

Great location to relax away from city life. Close to an array of local attractions - Porongorups & local wineries on the doorstep 30 minutes to the coast at Denmark or Albany.

Amazing bird life - sit at the dining table and watch the many water birds on the ephemeral lake outside the window.

Thoroughly recommended.

Peace and quiet
We are based in Devon, United Kingdom and we have been travelling to Australia for
2 months in our winter for a few years now.
We found this gem on our first visit to Western Australia and we enjoyed it so much
that we have now returned on 6 further occasions. The cottage has all the facilities
that we would expect and the hosts Beverley and his wife Kathy cannot do enough for us and
they have now become firm friends. We made full use of the 2 bedrooms last year
when we celebrated our Golden Wedding there with our son and his wife.
The cottage is within easy reach of Albany with all its beaches and Denmark and
Walpole are also near.
The Porongurup Range is also nearby and there are shops at the local town of Mount
We would have no hesitation in recommending Coot Farm to anyone who likes peace
and quiet with the option of the delights of Albany and the Southern Ocean.

Great stay at Coot Farm
If you want home style comfort, this is the place. Two generous bedrooms with double beds,well equipped kitchen, comfortable furniture, and a great location. Tranquil setting and generous hosts in Bev and Kathy. We had a great day in the Porongurup National Park, visited the Sandelwood Factory, and it was close enough to Albany to be convenient.We wish we had had more time to stay longer. One of our most enjoyable stays.
