Make Yourself at Home
LAVENDALE FARMSTAY & COTTAGES

Just 10 minutes out of York, this sensational Farmstay was built for families – literally built from the ground up for families.

With 64 hectares and a stable full of horses, ponies, alpacas and donkeys, and a yard home to sheep, goats, pet pigs, cattle, ducks and chickens; there’s no shortage of animals at this bustling – vibrant farm just a stones throw from York.

Children will love the playground and the activity room as well helping the owners feed the animals in the evening and collect eggs from the chickens.

Nature At Its Rawest

The river is a peaceful place to walk along and completely natural; the only paths are made by Kangaroos.

Nighttime stargazing is a hit on the farm when clear skies put on a spectacular show for guests.

Whether you are a couple looking to experience life on a farm, a family with young children looking to interact with animals, the grandparents are tagging along for family bonding; whoever you want to experience farm life with – Lavendale Farmstay is perfect.

Animal Feeding

All guests are invited to join in the animal feeding which takes place late afternoon – daily. This is great fun for all the family and takes up to an hour. You will meet all of the animals – hand feed some and chat to others. Most of the animals are undomesticated farm animals but some are there ‘just for loving’.

There is also the opportunity for the kids to brush the ponies and horses and collect eggs from the chickens.

The children’s playground is a hit with the kids and the parents can relax in the shade of the huge York Gum while watching the children.

YOUR ACCOMMODATION HOSTS

After being diagnosed with cancer, Katherine set about doing something which had been a dream of hers for some time…

To run a B&B in the country.

In October 2004 Katherine and her husband Merv purchased a parcel of land consisting of 64 hectares on the Avon River in the Shire of York.

They spent many weekends at the farm sitting around the outside fire, drinking red wine and dreaming of what their property might look like if they managed to pull it off.

Along the journey they changed their minds about the B&B service, and decided self-contained cottages for families would be better.

In July 2012 Katherine and Merv welcomed their first guests and since then Lavendale has grown into the vision Katherine and Merv talked about around the outside fire over many weekends and bottles of red wine.

Katherine and Merv had a passion to connect families with nature. They achieved this when they created Lavendale Farm Stay. They had a dream, they made a plan, they worked the plan.

They love to involve families in the animal feeding routine and support people learning how to interact with farm animals safely and learning about nature.

One of the most powerful lessons Katherine and Merv learned from lock-down was to re-appreciate. Re-appreciate the fresh air, the earth, the animals and the ones you love.
