Gourmet Experience – Country Hospitality
You will enjoy a true farm-stay experience at Graze-Ballan and although we are close-by to answer any questions, your section of the property is secluded and private. If you’re bringing a four legged friend, rest assured your area is fenced, albeit your furbaby is welcome to enjoy a larger area with our Kelpie, Daisy, as a playmate.
The Gypsy Van constitutes one bedroom, the vintage caravan the other, and the cute cabin is your dining, lounge and bathroom area. All are located very near to each other surrounding the firepit, There’s a potbelly on the cabin verandah, ideal for comforting soup or mulled wine to warm you in winter. Although the cabin and it’s decor are vintage style the bathroom is modern. If you are self catering there is an under shelter camp kitchen with a barbeque, hotplate, microwave, toaster, sink and all the pots and pans you will need.
The entire space is all yours so if you’re a couple looking for a quiet weekend do not be concerned that another couple might also be booked in. Our occasional visits to serve food (if you have ordered it) are kept to a minimum, and never without pre-arrangement. We can’t however guarantee the same courtesy from our guinea fowls who may pay a visit from time to time, we fondly call them ‘the police’ as they love to patrol to check all is well on the property.
On arrival we’ll take you on a mini tour of the property and make sure you’re settled in with all you need. You’re welcome to roam the large paddock which is home to our very friendly goats and sheep who will welcome your presence with the treats bucket we provide. You are encouraged to make it your home away from home for the duration of your stay and we will do all we can to make you feel welcome. Linen, towels, dressing gowns, slippers, and toiletries from local producer, Natural Basics, are all provided and blankets for around the campfire in the cooler months are in your rooms. The rooms are well heated with the cabin also housing an air-conditioner for the warmer months.
We are a licensed premises and practice responsible service of alcohol under the guidelines of our license.
