Lavendale Farm welcomes families, groups and couples. We have 64ha of gently sloping land on the banks of the Avon River 10 mins drive south of York in the beautiful Avon Valley. Accommodation is in self contained 1, 2 and 3 bedroom cottages including a fully wheelchair accessible unit. We have a large common room for in-house conferences or group gatherings. Two of our units can be booked together to give a 5 bedroom complex with 2 kitchens, living areas and bathrooms, plus an additional toilet. Each of our cottages has their own outdoor eating area with BBQ. There is also an elegant B&B room in the farmhouse. Each of our cottages has its own theme so they are all different but all have well setup kitchens, large living and dining areas and full bathrooms. We have enclosed wood fires in winter and evaporative air-conditioning in summer. Two units have reverse cycle air-conditioning. TVs with DVD players, books and games are in each cottage.
There is plenty to do on the farm. Our stable is home to horses, ponies, alpacas and donkeys. We have sheep, goats, pet pigs, an ostrich and some cattle plus numerous ducks and chooks. The children will love the playground or enjoy our activity room. Guests are invited to help feed the animals in the evening and collect eggs. Enjoy wonderful walks along the river bank or sandalwood plantation, or simply relax and enjoy the peace of the country. With clear skies the star show is wonderful.
