Situated just 5kms (NE) of Margaret River township and within easy driving distance of the region’s numerous attractions, the immensely popular Margaret River Hideaway & Farmstay is a gazetted “Land for Wildlife” property.
Our 4 gumnut rated accommodation includes 2 well-appointed Studios (suitable for 1-4 persons) and 7 very comfortable 2 and 3 bedroom cottages, catering for between 2 and 8 guests - in varying configurations. Please note that where our cottages have wood fires, the 2 Superior Studios have reverse-cycle air-conditioning only!
Many guests, including some from overseas, return again and again, such is their enjoyment of our peaceful retreat.

Why Gumnuts? Star Rating Australia cut inspections to every 3 years, but want to charge an annual fee. We believe this to be out of order and have resigned from the scheme.
The Hideaway Farm Experiece
Our “farm” encompasses 23.3 hectares (57 acres) and is home to a wide array of animals including Dorper sheep, alpacas, Scottish Highland cattle, geese, ducks, guinea fowl, emus, peacocks and chickens. Kids and adults enjoy our animal feeding every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
Well-behaved dogs are welcome to stay, without charge!
