My peaceful, tranquil home is only 4kms from town. It is close to cafes, shopping, wineries, bush walks, and farm activities including horseriding. I am surrounded by spectacular views of hills, valleys, farmland and gardens. I would love to welcome couples, solo adventurers, business travellers and small special interest groups such as keen gardeners, food/wine lovers and photographers.
My home is very new and is a work in progress. I have worked hard this year to create the beginnings of a beautiful sanctuary for my guests and myself. The front now boasts a young, but lovely white woodland garden with a meandering pathway under the wispy silver birch trees. The shady front veranda, where guests can enjoy a quiet drink, leads onto an inviting expanse of green lawn (young and still growing at the moment). Fresh herbs grow among the english cottage style garden and guests are encouraged to enjoy these during a cooking class or when enjoying a special home cooked country dinner (when privately arranged). I have half an acre out the back which is just a paddock at the moment. My plans for the coming year are to build a generous veranda and deck and begin the Kitchen Garden. But it all takes time and so is a work in progress, which I look forward to sharing with my guests/friends over the coming year. But for now, if you enjoy good food, cooking, gardening, fabulous views or taking spectacular photos, then you may have just found your little bit of paradise. I understand and respect that a lot of guests just want their own space, peace and quiet. However, it you're looking for a bit more interaction with your host, someone who is happy to show you around and take you to all the best places that Bridgetown has to offer, well I make a pretty good tour guide, or so I have been told. So I look forward to meeting you and sharing my home and my wonderful part of the world with you in the not too distant future.
Guests will, of course, have their own fairly spacious bedroom with queen bed, built in wardrobe with hanging space and drawers for unpacking. Each room has a delightful view across the valley. There is a light and airy sitting room for relxing. One spacious bathroom with large bath is shared between the three rooms. A theatre room for the use of guests will be set up fairly soon. Guests are welcome to join me in the living room if you wish to watch TV. Breakfasts, picnic lunches, dinner can be organized by arrangement.
I am a primary school teacher and do work full time. I am usually home not too late in the afternoon so I am available to help guests with most planning and recommendations. I try to keep my weekends free so am at your disposal should you like me to show you around. I am a keen photographer, gardener and cook and plan on running small private events in these areas so please ask about what I can offer if you interested in any of these hobbies.

I am a lover of nature, animals (especially dogs and horses), photography, gardening, cooking, eating out, family and spending time with close friends. I can't live without great music, technology, clean fresh air, my dog Roxy, my family and the surprise of new things. I look forward to sharing my amazing part of the world with you when you venture this way on your next holiday.
