Margaret River Hideaway & Farm-stay is a 23.3 hectare (57.57 acre) property, located 5kms north-east of Margaret River township, in a delightful rural setting. The cottages and studios are self-contained and have private enclosures for well-behaved dogs. A highlight of your stay will be the farm animal feeding offered every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday morning, an activity which is much loved by children and adults alike. Margaret River Hideaway is a unique property which will suit honeymooners, couples, families and small groups.

The 2 Studios (which are under 1 roof) and 7 Cottages are spaced out to ensure privacy. All have fenced enclosures to accommodate dogs (rules apply). Each is fully self-contained with air-conditioning, flat-screen TV and a DVD player, full kitchens and all the items that you would expect in a home, thereby enabling you to self-cater. The Cottages also have 'potbelly' wood stoves.

A 'starter breakfast' is provided which consists of a small packet (per person) of Cornflakes or Just Right, milk, orange juice and bread; as well as sachets of coffee, tea, jam, Vegemite, salt, pepper and a few farm-fresh eggs (if the 'chooks' are laying). This should cover your needs on the first morning, beyond which you’re expected to attend to your own food requirements. 

Coin-operated laundry facilities are available. limited free Wi-Fi is connected to all cottages (for up to 2 devices) which should be adequate for e-mails, web browsing and moderate streaming.

Activities on the Property 

Guests normally stroll, enjoying the ambience, or relax in and outside their accommodation. BBQs are set up on verandahs, so it’s easy enough to enjoy the Aussie outdoor lifestyle.  

Every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 8.30 am guests can participate in a 1-hour animal feeding tour of the farm (subject to weather conditions). Animals on the farm include emus, chickens, ducks, guinea fowl, peacocks, geese, sheep and alpaca; and several long-haired Scottish Highland cattle. The children will be encouraged to interact with the farm's animals. 

The Hideaway is within easy driving distance of all major features of the region and it's an easy 5-minute drive to Margaret River town, where you will find numerous cafes, restaurants, bars and shops.

Such an amazing stay for us and the kids. Well-equipped and very clean cottages, playgrounds all around the property, fireplace in the cottage and a communal fire pit outside. Manager Kim was full of warmth and hospitality in hosting us during the animal feeding sessions, during our chats with her and in engaging our kids. She went out of her way to take our kids on a buggy ride on our last day. Will definitely recommend this place.

This is our second time staying at Margaret River Hideaway and this place is just pure magic. We first stayed when my kids were 1 and 3 years old and now a year on and they still had the best time. The cottages are well equipped and super clean, but the real winner is the farm itself. So many things for the kids to do from jumping on the tramp, playing on the playgrounds, digging in the sand pit and looking and feeding the animals. There’s not many places you can go where you get to feed and pat emus! There is endless entertainment without even having to leave. Kim and Tony were the best hosts and made the animal feeding so fun and interactive. We will most definitely be back for a third visit.

Great place to stay. So many animals to interact with all day long. My kids had such a great time here. The manager Kim is amazing on the final day of the stay she took our daughter on a buggy ride to go around feeding all the animals. Would definitely stay here again.

My family stayed here for 5 nights recently, we absolutely loved it. The cottage was clean and comfortable and the property itself is beautiful with the serenity of the trees all around and the animals have free range of the place. The kids loved the animal feeding sessions and playing on the plentiful play equipment provided. The staff were very accommodating and couldn’t do enough for us to ensure we enjoyed our holiday, for example, one night the power went out (due to a western power fault) and the manager called us (as we were out for dinner) to advise about the blackout and how to access the property through the electric gate etc., later that night they came around the cottages and provided torches and lanterns to everybody. Also, they managed to organise a generator to be delivered by 5am the next morning so power could be restored asap whilst western power fixed the fault. It was very much appreciated by all of the guests as the fault took 2 days to be fixed in the end. We will definitely be back!
