Willow Wood is a new adults glamping retreat on an idyllic farming property in Ambergate, between Busselton and Margaret River. Pour a glass of wine and enjoy the abundant birdlife and kangaroos from your deck – owners Kevin and Amber are rehabilitating the nature reserves. Reservations open soon for an April launch, and be sure to book a massage too – Amber is a trained masseur and uses Larn’wa Botanicals Australian products.
8 Paddocks opened just before Christmas – three sleek timber-clad cabins with concrete bathtubs on the deck, and beautiful views straight into the bushland. Perfect for cool autumn weather, you’ll find a Morso wood fire, Netflix, fresh coffee and a Gaggia espresso machine, a fire pit (for when the fire ban is lifted) and each double-glazed window has a view. Owners Kristie and Shane own a furniture business in Perth, so the cabins’ high-end furnishings are custom designed and made in WA. The welcome pack is lovely too, with a changing selection of local treats including goodies from Kristie’s garden and henhouse.
Rústicoq Bed & Breakfast at Cowaramup Bakehouse breathes glamour and life back into the original Cowaramup bakery with a stylish French farmhouse renovation. The name is a cheeky reference to the rusty coq sculpture hanging from the old sign, and the owners’ excellent other venue, Rustico at Hay Shed Hill restaurant. You can book a room and enjoy shared open living spaces with cocktail making facilities, a gin bar and lawn games, or rent the entire property for up to 10 guests.
