Wineries with Accommodation

 

Rise & Shine

Here are 9 wineries where you can sleep over, and wake amongst the vines producing your favourite drop.

Sleeping over at your favourite winery is one of the best ways to experience the Margaret River Region. The peace and tranquillity is second to none, plus with many of these options there’s no need to worry about organising transport after a long lunch or tasting at the cellar door – simply meander over to your abode and settle in for the evening, preferably with a bottle of something made from the fruit surrounding you.

Here are nine amazing wineries that offer that seriously special experience of waking up surrounded by vines.

Fermoy Estate

‘The Lodge’ is an airy, light filled sanctuary set on one of the oldest vineyards in the Margaret River Region. The home itself is stylishly appointed, with beds for up to 10 people, and all the comforts you’d expect from a luxury stay. An incredible expanse of vines makes up the ‘backyard’, which can be appreciated from one of the many large windows overlooking the estate. At sunset, take in the picturesque vineyard with a drop of premium Fermoy wine.

Cullen Wines Homestead

This beautifully rustic homestead was constructed in 1976, by the vineyard’s founders, Diana and Kevin Cullen. The Homestead is made up of a main house and a studio, and was built using local timber and granite rock. All around the Homestead is natural bushland and vineyards, not to mention a tennis court for a leisurely swing. When you’re done, head across the road to Cullen Wines for a magnificent lunch, laden with organic and biodynamic produce.

Bettenay’s

Bettenay’s is a boutique winery, with 25 acres of vines stretched across the estate. They’re famous for their French-style nougat and liqueurs, which are created on-site and absolutely delicious. Families and groups can stay in either of Bettenay’s charming chalets, one with views of the lake, and the other set amidst the olive grove. Then there’s the adult’s only Lakeside Spa Apartment for a romantic weekend away. Guests can also enjoy a wonderful gourmet picnic by the lake, starring the tasty produce Bettenay’s is renowned for.

Burnside Organic Farm Bungalows

Tucked away on 15 hectares of organic farmland, both bungalows are set in the peace and privacy of stunning natural bushland. Bungalows are solar passive, and crafted with recycled timber, stone and rammed earth. Each special spot has a luxuriously large bath and a cosy wood fire. Plus, a private verandah, perfect for sampling their renowned Zinfandel. Guests can also book a farm tour to discover more about how biodynamic wine is created.
